If anyone still believes that the winter – it’s time for a bike, it is very much mistaken. For a long time there are bikes capable of overcoming not only the snow-covered land, but drifts, ice, and other joys of winter on the roads. A few people even attempted to cross Antarctica riding a bike, but so far it has not been possible, however, they are happy and well-known Eric Larsen is ready to make another attempt.
In order to cope with the elements, snow bikes traditionally use special winter tires. Also, some of the professional sports winter bikes are modified chain mechanism and weighted design. As for winter tire, they have a special relief of spike and a larger width than the summer tire. However, this was not enough, and a group of designers from the United States inspired attempts cyclists conquer the South Pole of the planet created BikeBoards.
What is BikeBoards? If looking at BikeBoards say that this ski – it will be absolutely accurate description. Oddly enough, however, the designers were really able to put the bike on skis. BikeBoards installed on the front wheel. Thus, BikeBoards increases speed, efficiency overcome deep snow, increases the stability of the bike in the snow and with all of this without prejudice maneuverability. Principle of operation BikeBoards is that the rear wheel – pushes the front wheel – slip, instead go.
Is attached to the wheel BikeBoards with special adhesive tapes, which wrapped wheel. As shown, this is more than enough. Removed and worn BikeBoards less than 1 minute. To ski BikeBoards also attached special bag mount on the frame where it can always be put in the case of uselessness. Ski fairly wide but not very long, so it does not cause transportation difficulties. BikeBoards attached to any wheel with tire parameters from 5 to 13 cm Price BikeBoards – $ 375.
