There are plenty of ski bicycles on the market, but they all require replacing your tires with skis. Colorado company BikeBoards has come up with a much more elegant way to convert your cycle for the snow.  To use the BikeBoard, secure it to the front tire with a pin and strap. Since the bike’s wheels and gears stay in place, BikeBoard can easily be removed.

According to Gizmag, the BikeBoard has a full steel edge, some sidecut and curved tips, “providing float in deep snow and grip and carving on harder, slicker snow and ice.” It works with fat bikes, BMX, and regular 26-inch and 29-inch mountain bikes. The kit for a single BikeBoard will cost $375.
