This mod will make your bike ready for the slopes!
It’s made by Fat Bike Skis. It replaces the front wheel of the bike with a ski, making them much better suited to snow. The ski prevents the bike from skidding or doing an ‘endo’.
Braking is controlled by the rear tyre, or by steering side to side. The mod can be fitted to most bikes. You just remove the front wheel and clip the ski on.
The company believes they have finally perfected the design, and it is going into production. It will cost around £630, and be available March 2018. Preorders available HERE
