Heads were turning last week when bike enthusiasts from around the world converged at Interbike 2011 in Las Vegas, catching their very first glimpse of the sbyke®. Attendees were amazed how traditional parts seen on bicycles and skateboards were fused with an innovative frame and steering mechanism to create a one-of-a-kind hybrid that gives riders mobility, precision control and a smooth ride.
BMX riders were among those quickly captivated by the sbyke®. Taking them for a spin in Interbike’s demo area, several BMXers quickly mastered the art of riding a sbyke™. After only five minutes they were wowing the crowd with cool tricks like manuals and rear-wheelies. When BMXer Nick Remirez was asked what he thought of the sbyke™ he exclaimed, “All fun, all day!”.
Not only was the sbyke™ a sensation with BMXers, both kids and adults from all walks of life had a blast cruising around the demo area, too. Riders, both tall and small, experienced the ability to fluidly move like a slalom skier or a surfer as a result of the patented rear-steering.
All in all, Team Sbyke had a great time meeting riders and retailers from around the globe. Bart Wilson, Co-Founder of Sbyke USA, said, “There’s nothing better than seeing the smiles on people’s faces when they see and experience the sbyke™ for the first time.”
