The Hillstrike is a contraption that could easily be labelled a mountain bike for winter, only it's not that simple because this contraption doesn't just embrace the snow but glides on it.

While there are some similar products out there, what makes the Hillstrike a truly unique mountain bike for winter is the fact that its pedal system is placed near where a mountain bike's crankset usually sits, making the center of gravity of the Hillstrike similar to that of a mountain bike.

The Hillstrike is the subject of a Kickstarter campaign, and can be yours for a pledge of $1,790. It will appeal to downhill mountain bikers who dwell in colder climates and, rather than simply switching over to downhill skiing or snowboarding once the snow falls, like the idea of continuing with a handlebar-and-pedals form of outdoor downhill entertainment and sport.
