Raytech's Mantis design is a revolutionary vehicle specifically designed for average citizens of the New York Safe Zone. Unveiled as part of Raytech's presentations in May at the World's Fair 2019, the vehicle is made available to the public for regular rental options in increasing numbers as early as July 2019. Starting September 2019, custom orders are made available for private purchase.

Mantis vehicles, due to their four-wheeled design, can be operated by users with a standard motor vehicle license. Furthermore, the independent suspension systems enable each wheel to move freely - perfect for the difficult terrain still under reconstruction in the NYCSZ. The body is made from a combination of minimal lightweight carbon fiber and custom solar panels. The molded panels adapted to 85% of the cycle's surfaces allows the machine to collect direct and indirect sunlight reflected in its surroundings.

The Mantis is designed to boost transportation and infrastructure in the Safe Zone and has thus been marketed to the average resident.
