Canadian snow bike offers fresh thrills for downhill mountain bikers
This week’s video comes from mechanical engineering students at the University of Sherbrooke in Quebec who are building a bike with a difference.
With Project Avalanche the five students are looking to develop a bike that lets downhill-mountain biking enthusiasts extend their hobby into the winter months when mountains are covered in snow.
They state their mission is “to conceive and manufacture a prototype reproducing stability, braking capacities, manoeuvrability and propulsion of a regular mountain bike” and cite SDS braking, a track system, and an internal geared hub as key concepts to be incorporated into the finished product.
They’ve embarked on a KickStarter campaign to fund the project and details on how to sponsor the team can be found at the end of this promotional film.
