A big myth of skibikes/skibobs is that they are dangerous. The fear is "what if you are hit with one of these things?". Skibobs have been an accepted snowsport in Europe for over 50 years and serious accidents are uncommon. There is a good reason for that. As we mentioned before, you learn to control a skibike much faster than you would skiing or snowboarding.
Secondly, the skibike by design has excellent edging capability and can stop very quickly. The low center of gravity and quick learning curve make for a very stable and controlled platform.
If the rider ever gets separated from the skibike in a spill, the skibike stops almost immediately after tipping over thanks to the footpegs and handlebar acting as a brake. If your snowboard or skis get away from you, you most likely will have to chase your equipment downhill.
Also many injury-inducing falls occur when skiers and snowboarders are fatigued and/or distracted. Skibiking is a naturally less strenuous activity.
The Koski Skibike is designed to handle the most aggressive riders, but we encourage everyone to ride within their limits, stay alert, respect others sharing the mountain, and know their safety code.
As with skiing and snowboarding, helmets and padding are recommended.
