Snow mobility pioneer, Moonbikes, is set to launch an app to connect its user community of electric snowbikers.
The only mobility vehicle of its kind on the market, Moonbikes is practically silent, emission-free, and leaves virtually no trace in the snow. The snow bike is one-third of the size of the average snowmobile and gives its users the freedom of an e-bike, with the power of a motorcycle.
Launched in 2021, Moonbikes’ mission is to democratise snow mobility. Its snow bikes can be purchased in more than 20 countries, including the US and Canada.
Moonbikes was developed in response to the challenges of winter transportation. The zero-emission snow bike is almost silent to create transport more conducive to immersing onself in nature. The model is also easy to charge, transport and store – with evolving features that make it enjoyable to ride.Coming in winter 2023, the Connected Moonbike app lets users track aspects of their journeys including trail maps, altitude, distance, speed, duration, battery level and more. It will also make it possible to connect with other adventurers in their area, following them to see their personal best rides and join them on trails.
Moonbikes founder Nicolas Muron intends for Connected Moonbike to help create a social club for Moonbikers. “MoonBike is super focused on creating outdoor products that immerse people into their surroundings,” he says.
“Thanks to its innovative features, our Connected App brings MoonBikers together to build a community with others who are passionate about the outdoors. The app also provides riders with even greater control of their MoonBikes, thanks to the detailed dashboard which gives real-time data on the MoonBikes’ performance.”
Users will also be able to use the Connected Moonbike app to gain more insight into level of difficulty of their rides and new milestones achieved. The app will award top riders with bronze, silver and gold medals for performance that will be displayed on their profile page. They will be able to unlock different badges, and re-do tracks to aim for faster times, to reach higher speeds speed, and achieve greater heights.
It will also be possible to share rides with the rest of the Connected Moonbike community and leave comments and compliments on one another’s pages. Users can challenge each other to virtual races and organise events to meet other like-minded MoonBikers both virtually and in-person.
