A cold wave is coming. Snow is coming. What's more fun than a snowbike? But of course, who has one, right? Well, if you have a mountain bike, you can also have a snowbike with this amazing kit.
From mountain bike to snowbike in a wheel change
The kit to turn your mountain bike into a snowbike has been developed by Envo and is called Envo Snowbike. It is made up of two parts that replace the wheels and turn any mountain bike into a real snowbike.
The good thing is that this Envo system has electrical assistance, because if it is already difficult to pedal, imagine through the snow. Of course, it's not a snowbike like those you see in the movies in Alaska, but with a little effort and some electrical assistance, you can enjoy your mountain bike in a different way.
The Envo Snowbike is sold as a separate kit, with no mountain bike involved. It's the first kit of its kind and it's really promising.
