With powered front and rear tracks, the Snowtracker seems like a lot of fun.
Gearheads will remember the Christini two-wheel drive system for dirt bikes. Now they’ve added a system for off-roaders who are compelled to play in the snow on something more agile than a snowmobile.
While track kit systems for rear wheels have been around for a long time, the Christini II-Track Snow Bike adds a powered track to the front end as well. The system is available on the company’s existing 450cc four-stroke or the 300cc Gas Gas two-stroke. The rear track, supplied by a third party, is driven by a rear pully behind the swingarm pivot; the front tread is powered by a shaft drive.
The front track extends rides below a slotted ski, and features a height adjustment for riding in soft snow, packed snow, mud or sand. The front track adds acceleration, climbing ability and braking on deceleration.
