Some (like Reagan Sieg) saw it coming. Others shook their head at the notion, dismissing it as another fad, something that would fizzle and die. But they were wrong. The snow bike revolution is real. 

Directed by Jaya Lange, Trax: The Snowbike Revolution picks right up where last year’s film left off by taking an in-depth look at the most popular kits on the market. From Timbersled and Yeti to MotoTrax and Crazy Mountain Xtreme, we get to see what’s new for 2017 and how each setup performs in the backcountry. The Utah-based SnowTech MX is also in the mix with its new Adrenaline kit.

Then, it’s time for snow bike pioneers Reagan Sieg, Brock Hoyer and Ronnie Renner to shine. New Yeti team rider Brett Turcotte bumps up the gnar factor with footage of the world’s first-ever snow bike backflip.

From the interviews to the deep pow segments, Trax: The Snowbike Revolution is a solid film that is packed with great information for the current and future snow bike rider.

The film is available on iTunes and Google Play. For more info, visit the website or see the Facebook Page
