This skibike is one of the latest versions developed in 2004. The most distinctive aspect about this skibike is that it is constructed entirely from thin-walled tubular steel. The steering column and upper frame are 1-1/4" diameter steel tubing while the rest of the frame is made from 3/4" tubing. The curved steering column is integrated smoothly with the now common "leading link with coil-over" damped front shock. The seat is fixed on the upper part of the frame and suspended over the shock cushioned swingarm on the rear ski.

The skis are bolted to swivel bushings and cushioned with small rubber blocks so the skis can rotate inline with the frame. This is also a fairly heavy bike weighing in at around 25 pounds and designed for hard riding and a strong arm for hoisting it off the snow for chairlift rides.
