Peglegs UK, the iWALK 2.0 and the America’s Cup

 How iWALK2.0 Made French Challenge Possible

The new America’s Cup catamarans sail four times faster than the wind by literally flying over the water. When French skipper Franck Cammas was knocked overboard during training, he almost lost his lower leg. He needed to get back into training in time to compete for the cup, so naturally he wanted the best, most technologically advanced crutch in the world. That’s why he chose the iWALK2.0, which we the fellow sailors at Peglegs UK sent to his training base in France. In June, France successfully competed in the America’s Cup Challenger series in their quest for the cup.


You definitely can’t drive a car with a manual gearbox and foot clutch using an iWALK but what this video shows is how easy it is to remove the iWALK 2.0 and get into the driving seat of a large American car with automatic transmission. Putting it back on is the reverse of this operation and takes a similar time.
