Hillstrike Snowtrike shreds mountainsides, snow sport perceptions

The winter sports niche is brimming with clever hybrid equipment designed to embody the fun of classic activities like snowboarding and skiing while making it more accessible to a wider range of people. Crowdfunding campaigns have seen a few vie for backer’s support, but the recently launched campaign for the Hillstrike Snowtrike claims to have perfected the mountain bike/sled combination.

The Hillstrike Snowtrike retains the characteristics of carving untouched slopes by implementing two things: a parallelogram system that lets riders shift left and right, and a proprietary pedal system that offers better grip during more demanding riding or tricking.
