Founded and based in Idaho, America, Timbersled is renowned for producing snow bike conversion kits for dirt bikes since 2010. This unique kit was built to meet the demands of a riding trend that has grown in popularity over recent years.
The Timbersled brand was acquired by American automotive conglomerate Polaris Industries – the owner of both the Victory Motorcylces and Indian Motorcycles brand – last year and perhaps perfectly reflects the genre’s growing popularity.
Essentially, the conversion kits made by Timbersled see the front wheel being replaced with a ski and the rear with a track. This setup offers a much more dynamic riding experience as it allows riders to chart across snowy terrains better and further than a regular dirt bike. The tracks are modular in design and can be easily bolted on to different motorcycles through the range of individual install kits that Timbersled offers.
Timbersled offers a total of four track types starting with the Short Track or ST that retails for $5,300, followed by a Long Track or LT design priced at $6,000, as well as two Snow Cross models, the SX120 and SX137 priced at $5,800 and $6,500 respectively.
Whilst it may be hard to convert snowmobile fans and riders to adopt this style of snow riding, Timbersled is hoping that its ingeniously designed conversion kits will kick-start a new kind of snow-riding trend. The fact that dirt bike owners are granted the ability to ride their prized dirt busters throughout all seasons hold a lot of potential indeed.
