Introducing the Moox Bike: The First-Ever Bicycle-Scooter Hybrid
November 18th, 2015
Moox Inc, a bicycle design and technology company located in San Francisco, today unveiled its Moox Bike giving users an option of riding styles and opening up an entirely new category of casual riding. The first-ever “ride and glide” bike and scooter hybrid with a fat tire experience offers an innovative design, construction and architecture for an extremely comfortable and fluid riding experience.
The official Moox Bike Kickstarter campaign is live.
Designed by founder and CEO Mike Silvestri, the Moox Bike provides top-notch performance and is purposely designed to break from the ordinary, modifying the traditional and elevating bicycling to a new level of fun.
“It’s no secret that commuting to work or riding to the farmer’s market can get repetitive,” says Silvestri. “A lot of people nowadays put their heads down and pedal to their destination without taking the time to look around and enjoy their surroundings. We created the Moox Bike to encourage people to savor the journey and add spark and personality to their daily travels.”
Silvestri continues, “After commuting to work for years on CalTrain, I woke up one day and realized there was a transportation option missing. Staying up late in my garage that night I started messing around with different parts–from motorcycles to bicycles. I ended up with the Moox Bike that combines traditional bicycling functionality with scooter-gliding fun. I’m so excited to share my life’s dream on Kickstarter with other like-minded riders who appreciate that sometimes the journey is far more important than the destination.”
The Moox Bike is equipped with wide, durable tires for improved grip, traction and maneuverability in all types of terrain – wet stone, muddy paths or crowded snowy sidewalks. The frame is made of high strength aluminum and uses 7×1 Shimano Drivetrain breaks with a grip shift. The Moox Bike is available in striking five colors: green, red/orange, blue, white and charcoal.
Riders can pedal to quickly gain speed or easily step down on to the scooter platform and glide to take in the scenery or socialize with other riders.
The Moox Bike is structurally sound and will last for years with minimal maintenance. Each Moox Bike is individually tested and adheres to the highest industry standards.
