Skibike_2008

This skibike is one of the latest versions developed in 2008. It features a fully articulated frame with shock mounts for both skis. The rear ski is mounted on a floating hinge at the base of a triangulated frame member, which is itself pivoted at the base of the frame at the same location as the footpegs are mounted. It has an adjustable shock with the tension set by sliding its anchor position along the lower frame member. The front ski also floats on a pivoting hinge and uses the now familiar "leading link with coil-over" suspension. This is not the lightest skibike though, weighing in at just under 37 pounds (17 kilos). But it has proven nonetheless to be a smooth performer under a variety of riding conditions, with responsive handling and tracking ability that its predecessors can only envy.
