This Bike Is Built For Snow
Snow sport lovers have a new option in the French-built MoonBike. Some compare it to dirt biking on snow. Others call it a cross between a snowmobile and an e-bike.
The MoonBike is electric and can travel up to 26 mph. One battery lasts 1 to 1 1/2 hours. A second battery doubles the range. Secured in an insulated and heated box, the battery can handle temperatures down to -13 F. To charge, simply plug the battery charger cable into the MoonBike and a wall socket.
With a front ski and track in the back, it can go through 12 in. of powder snow. Inventor Nicolas Muron recommends riding the MoonBike on a trail up the slope and through the powder snow on the way down. At less than 200 lbs., the MoonBike is designed to be light and narrow enough (28 in. wide) to take indoors, load in vehicles, etc.
Some assembly is required to mount the ski and add foot pegs and the handlebar. MoonBike offers videos and video chats with a technician to troubleshoot any problems.
MoonBike was introduced to North America at the beginning of 2022 and orders are sent in batches from the Bosch factory in the French Alps. Check the website for information about ordering for January delivery. The MoonBike starts at $8,900, plus tax and shipping.
