Quantya Snow Bike Prototype
Quantya USA posted pics of a snow bike they are working on. Details beyond the pictures are slim but it is basically a Quantya MX with a snowmobile inspired track where the rear wheel would be and a ski where the front wheel usually sits.
The bike is being developed and tested in by Quantya HQ in Switzerland. The rear track provides great flotation and traction in all snow conditions but saps a good amount of power. Over the next 6 months Quantya is experimenting with different battery and motor power combination’s to find the best mix of performance and battery life. I would also guess they might be researching how to keep the batteries warm or resistant to voltage drops as cold temperatures have a negative effect on a packs charge.
If all goes well we may see this model available to the public. If you can’t wait that long you can always find a motorcycle snow track kit and build one yourself. If you do please post up some pics!
