The video is very impressive. They run through woods, MX track, sand and mud pit and a short clip on snow. The riders are jumping plenty with the tracks mounted and the bikes seem to behave normally. I was surprised how easily the track rolls, not nearly as much drag as a sled.

If you're going to ride in the snow the first investment should be the ski. Even if you ride hardpacked trails there's always the chance of hitting a softspot. My ski only touches down once or twice a day when riding good trails, but if I didn't have it there's a good chance they would've been crashes.

I have a short helmet cam clip shot last May, just after I hit a soft spot on a trail. The ski skipped the front end right over, the back end sunk to the rear fender and stopped me dead. Without the ski I would’ve endo’d for sure.
I have 2 sno ride clips in an Image Station album right now. The first clip is popping the bike out of the sink hole. The second clip was shot last January, about -35, riding through the pack ice woops on the edge of the Bay. They’re both about 12 meg and you have to download to view.
No track in either clip since I just installed it, just ski and spikes.
If you want to take a look PM me your email address and Image Station will send you a guest pass.
