Chapman Stealth Tracking Bike


The Stealth Electric Tracking Bike is our very latest answer to completely clean and silent filming where you need moving shots over different types of terrain. The perfect solution for working with animals (e.g live Horses) or in a sync sound situation. The Stealth tracking bike is perfect for urban locations where noise levels may need to be kept to a minimum, and it meets the health and safety requirements of all indoor and outdoor arenas and stadiums.

With our fantastic range of camera tracking vehicles at Chapman UK, we're confident we have equipment for virtually any land-based filming application you can think of. Our fleet of silent and clean electric vehicles is growing all the time.




The Stealth Tracking Bike has the flexibility to mount a wide range of Stabilised Camera Heads & rigs (including certain 3D camera packages) or conventional, single cameras (see photos) on the front and on the back of the bike in a high or low configuration. Due to the small size of the bike, it is not designed to carry an operator.

With a powerful, high torque engine (see features), the Stealth Tracking Bike is very quick and agile with a top speed of 85mph! It's long travel suspension and shock absorbers, ensure a very smooth & balanced ride with no discernible vibration. The excellent handling and ride qualities, combined with our Stabilised Remote Heads and amazing Vibration Isolators, ensure rock steady tracking shots in almost total silence. The Stealth Tracking Bike excels on road and off in the dry or the wet, it is production ready.

The Stealth Tracking Bike is a great addition to the electric fleet at Chapman UK and should be your first choice when you need silent & smooth tracking shots for indoor spaces, conservational sound sensitive locations or when working with or near animals. It's incredibly versatile and fast (if needs be) offering multiple camera mounting positions.
