NIVIS / Snowcycle


The concept of NIVIS is dealing with general movement in snow.
This device however is not just a fun sporting device for downhill drives, but also an alternative to the conventional bicycle for snowy regions. NIVIS is propelled by muscle power and uses the same principle as conventional bikes do.
With NIVIS it is possible to travel on flat areas of terrain and also on regions that are either inclining or declining. In the front there is a gliding surface and in the back there is a skid chain that activates the bike and ensures a good road grip.
