For the first time a Skibike has the option to change its geometry with an adapter at the shock mount. The basic setup is similar to the previous model 5.2 but the alter set up is 50mm lower. This lower position for sure lowers the foot rests, but also flattens the steering angle leading to an easier to handle Skibike for beginners. The higher position makes it more agile and better for advanced level riders.
Now we forge the foot rests which makes them stronger. We changed the Shocks to more simple but significant lighter ones and so managed to cut the weight by 1,5 kg down to 12.25 kg. This with the focus to still keep the price reasonable but provide a good performance. Riders who want to upgrade their Skibike may use any High-End-Mountainbike shock on the market.
You can ride with skid turns to manage steep terrain, carve bars deep down, or ride through the trees like on a single track with your MTB. It can truly do all of it! The 5.3 is agile but though stable at high speeds.
The 5.3 gives you the feeling of standing "in the bike" which makes you feel very safe and in the lower position it provides this feeling even more. Lean in, carve hard, rush down, go off piste.. Whatever you want!
The new colours are not that loud anymore and more grown up.
The new 5.3 is The high-end Allround-Skibike and the best deal you can get!
