FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is riding a Snowbike dangerous?
Because the rider's center of gravity is low (sitting down), and there are six points of stability (2 feet on the ground, a front ski and back ski and 2 hands on the handle-bars), the Snowbike is very stable and easy to control.

How easy is it to learn to ride a Snowbike?
The Snowbike is designed to respond to the natural movements of the human body. Learning to make turns, link turns and stop simply requires a shift in body weight. This combined with built-in stability, allows the rider to progress quickly.

Is a Snowbike heavy?
The Snowbike is very light. Bike models range in weight from 3.5 kg / 7 lbs (Kiddy) to 6.8 kg / 15 lbs (C4 Model). Snowbikes can be carried with one hand.

Is it difficult to put a Snowbike on a chairlift?
The Snowbike is designed to rest comfortably on the arm of the chairlift.

Is snowbiking just a craze? Does it offer a challenge?
The Snowbike has all of the inherent components to offer the rider a lifelong challenge. It is quick to learn, but takes a lifetime to master like any other sport.


WHO CAN RIDE A SNOWBIKE?

Beginners
Snowbikes are far easier to learn than skiing or snowboarding for beginners of any age. On your very first run, you will be laughing and enjoying yourself. Whatever age or skill level, riders progress with ease and comfort on a Snowbike. You will enjoy a day of riding in the mountains with no aching muscles because the Snowbike is designed to be low impact - relaxing in the hot tub at the end of the day becomes a choice, not a necessity.

High Performance Riders
The high performance capability of the Snowbike presents the expert skier with the challenge of a new winter sport. With no limits to the potential of the Brenter Snowbike, high performance riders can strive for style, perfect technique and hard expert lines. Like skiing or snowboarding, riders spend a lifetime mastering these high performance machines.

Lapsed Skiers
The Snowbike is a full active suspension bike which requires far less stamina and is low impact on the knees and back yet offers no less sport potential. The lapsed skier can excel in advanced terrain without the strain on joints and even meet or surpass their skiing ability in a short time. There is no real age limitation to participating in this sport - keep riding into your 70's and 80's!

Groups
The Snowbike is a great equalizer for varying skill levels. Friends and families will be riding together in no time. Co-workers can ride side-by-side, leaving no one behind. It is a great morale booster and a terrific opportunity to engage in something that everyone can do regardless of experience or ability. The Snowbike is truly for anyone and everyone.
