The history behind the Timbersled Snow Bike
The idea of the Timbersled started back in 2001. The original concepts were using a tire on front with the track system mounted in the back. There were numerous modifications through the years and for the most part, the original Timbersled was difficult to ride and just didn’t offer the float that one looks for when riding through snow. The real breakthroughs came in 2010 and by 2013 the Timbersled Snow Bike was using a super light weight ski up front and a modified rear suspension that offered the necessary float. Now entering 2016, the Timbersled has quickly become the preferred choice for backcountry travel.
In 2013, Rocky Mountain Adventure Rentals became the first company in Colorado to offer the Timbersled Snow Bike as a rental machine. Since then, we have continued to push the boundaries of the sport and introduce Timbersledding to new riders across the country and world. In 2017, Rocky Mountain Adventure Rentals won the first ever Timbersled Enduro Race and is also credited with having the first women’s Timbersled racing team. Through the years, we have perfected the install kits to work efficiently and effectively on KTM Dirt bikes to handle the most extreme conditions.
While the sport of Timbersledding is still in its infancy, we here at Rocky Mountain Adventure Rentals are excited for what the future holds and hope that you will come join us soon.
