Nicholi Rogatkin and Reed Boggs take on winter for the second time on SNO-GOs. They charge deep powder among snow cake trees and blast never seen before tricks in Woodward Park City's new terrain park alongside SNO-GO rider Josh Hoffer to give everyone a taste of the future of winter mountain bike training. The season never ends.

 I may be a bit out of line here? Bi = 2, tri = 3. Sno-trikes. Rad snow shredding regardless.

 Yeah its one of the few designs of snowbikes out there but I'm really digging this one over the others and their insane number of resort partnerships shows everyone else does also. Chase, you're killing it man.

 Looks fun but yes - two skis and pegs will forever be what a ski bike is to me

 Plus it's bicycle - the 'cycle' part indicating there are wheels in that system. Nevertheless - that does look hella fun.

 Yeah someone already thought of an idea that requires two planks and snow and its 1000 times better than this.

 Why does it have a beam pointed directly from top of the top tube to your nuts?
  • 9 0
 I think that's how they hook up to the chairlifts, but yeah definitely a potential "situation" waiting to happen.
  • 2 0
 My question too. but yea I had to go to their website and look to see its to rest on the chair lift on the way up.

But WHY doesn't it fold/pivot down when your not on the lifts???
  • 2 0
 Would make a lot more sense if it folded against the top tube until you needed it. Could even be shaped to wrap around the top tube when not in use. If you slip your foot and whack your chin on it, let a long alone nuts incidences that could happen!
  • 6 1
 The possibility of hitting the prize zone is nil. The way your body bends and how your feet are connected make it pretty impossible despite its looks. We're hoping we can make this adjustable in the future but for chairlift safety and compliance reasons (which is why SNO-GO is allowed at more ski resorts than other ski bikes) we had to make this bar a permanent component to the bike. So far the worst injury we've heard of it causing is a bruised knee.

 Since you stand basically on the ground instead of the BB, aren't these actually snow scooters?

 @valrock: Gotta mess with em for all those years they kept us off the lifts!!

Flip side is I'm sure all of us boarders have been stuck somewhere in a low spot doing the hop/scoot/thrust to try and keep going till the next dip in the slope... OR skating... OR walking...

While some skier "poles" right on by....

 There is a tool for every job. A downhill bike is the best tool for riding a bike park. A surfboard is the best tool for riding waves. Skis or a snowboard is the correct tool for riding down a snow covered mountain. Not these snow bike things.
  • 4 1
 Folks said the same thing back in the late seventies when I started showing up at the hill with a snowboard ... minds change, people adapt. I no longer like to clip into anything, bikes, skis, or a board, but I woudl ride a snow bike. I'd like to try one with just two skis or one longer one, kinda like they use for a sit ski.

 @nurseben: Yes but this is more akin to someone showing up at the top of a line in rollar skates.

 Agreed, these guys are so talented and watching this I was still thinking that I'd way rather be skiing that area than on one of those things.

 I'm still wondering how to stop - the lack of brake levers is quite disturbing.

 @JWadd: vm.tiktok.com/TTPdk5vGRn. Hockey stop, initiated by leaning on your handle bars. If you can ride a bike, you'd figure it out on your first run.

 Is TNGNT akin to CLCTV, where they just lose the vowels...or does it stand for something like Ted Nugent Genetically-modified Ninja Turtles?

 I want to see an actual snow bike, everything on the market seems gimmicky and toy like.
An actual 200mm DH frame, dual crown fork, coil front and rear so it's less affected by temperature fluctuation, along with the right oil weight for subzero conditions, and damped properly: small bump compliance is less important, get high speed rebound and compression right given the much higher speeds, and lastly: actual cranks so you can drop the outside pedal, not just pegs. I recognize this is incredibly niche and therefore expensive but I want one!
  • 2 1
 Snow is soft and slides smooth and therefore doesn’t require small bump compliance like a mtb. SNO-GOs fork is now a coil for larger impacts and cold weather performance and there is no rear suspension because it is unnecessary. Imagine skiers and snowboarders installing coil shocks between their bingings and their boards lol no control!

 Hey everyone, here’s an idea… how about we do more than complain about the changes to pb? Maybe we can all pick a day a day to not visit pb every week? Maybe throwback Thursday until they at least engage us in a conversation about the planned changes?

 Can I put a fox 40 on this?
  • 2 1
 I've seen numerous snow bikes, and this snow-trike is the worst design I've seen. How in the world are you going to have a metal object pointed right at your body with no way to secure it to the frame while you're riding it?
  • 1 0
 If you are referring to the U shaped bar on the frame, it really doesn’t interfere with riding anymore than the top tube on your mtb. Your feet don’t come out of the bindings in a fashion that allows other areas of your body to impact it. Occasionally bump my knee but that’s all. The bar allows for chairlift compliance so you can safely ride it at hundreds of resorts. Brilliant design and a lot of fun.

 Yeah, it would suck to ride them without any snow.

 Ha.. the opposite. I was a full time skier before working with SNO-GO but now I go snogoing when the conditions are shit for the boards. Low snow, groomers, and trees are way more fun on the bike.

 @steveczech: I have an old snow trike by North Legion and I like sno go said, it was way better on icy days than a snowboard. 3 edges to grab, super stable. The 4 guys I was with, all on snowboards did not even finish the day cause conditions were bad, I was having a blast drifting at full speed with the hill to myself.
  • 2 0
 @coreybrown: It makes sense! But I'd rather go fatbiking when icy and snowboard or whatever only when there's too much snow to bike! lol
  • 1 1
 @coreybrown: But on hard pack you're only gonna have two edges down, and when it gets steep you're only going to get one edge down effectivly because you cant stack it up like skis, and you have to leverage the rest of the 'bike' to get that edge in, hanging off the side like a snowmoble kinda, which is going to put your weight towards the hill which is a good way to slide out, vs skis or a board where you can angulate. Doesn't really sound nice. And better for tree skiing? nah, Maybe better for a novice, but then that novice is better off improving their skiing so they can really get the most out of the trees. In the video it looked like it wanted to run straight in the deeper snow once it got up to speed. You also get more edge out of two 180+ cm skis than you do out of these 3 short things.
  • 2 0
 @inside-plus: Can’t stack it up.. wrong. The SNO-GO is built with a system called synchronized lateral articulation technology. There are 13 pivot points that allow full articulation of all three skis to allow the skis to hold an edge on any skiable terrain. 3 edges down in all conditions for more control. Lean back and go faster to surface in deeper snow like you would on a snowboard. Yes better for a novice 100% there. Am I still choosing skis on 30cm + pow day? Yes. Much easier to learn. But I am absolutely stoked on the way this bikes rides and handles for sub-perfect conditions. For a guy that has skied professionally for 20+ years and now loves to ride his mtb. The sno-go is the best hybrid for a whole new way to experience ripping down the mountains. You just have to try it before jumping to conclusions. I do a full review / explanation on my Instagram story highlights @robaseltine

 @coreybrown: ice is for hockey

 @sno-go: Fully agree. I got into snow bikes because I don't enjoy boarding at resorts without fresh pow. The bikes are a new challenge and are great when riding with people that only go on blue and green.
