Comprising of a standard dirt bike frame, engine and suspension, snowbikes simply have the wheels removed and replaced with a single ski on the front and a specially designed snowmobile-style track on the rear, making them ready for anything the mountain can throw at them.
Snow bikes, unlike the heavier & broader snowmobiles, are narrow, light, and much easier to maneuver, which lets you navigate areas normally only accessible by advanced snowmobilers, such as tree areas, and side-sloping across steeper terrain.
Our Yamaha YZ 450F race bikes are built with the top of the line Yeti Freeride 129 kits. Built with carbon fibre, titanium & aluminum, the entire snowbike weighs in at around 300lbs.
Although doubling is possible, we do not permit more than one rider per bike at a time. Doubling makes the snowbike very difficult to steer and maneuver, and increases the risk of falling, crashing and injury.
