Athos Quad – is it the New Way to Go?
Here at Coolest-Gadgets we have covered quite a few bicycle alternatives, some goofy, some sporty and some downright unbelievable, you’ll have to tell us what you think of the next one up, because I haven’t quite decided what to make of it myself. I have to say it looks awesome and relatively user friendly, so it could be a blast.
Check out the Athos Quad, it’s designers say “its a cycle inspired by BMX, Freestyle, Downhill and Motocross, and that Athos marries the intense stability and handling characteristics of a quad with the flexibility of a bicycle.” Finding its home on off road courses and rugged terrain the Athos Quad looks like a mud buddies new best friend. I guess its really a pedal powered ATV. Check out the video after the break.
The Athos will come in 3 different configurations (freestyle, downhill and cross-country) they have four wheel independent suspension, disc brakes both front and rear, traction enhancing differentials and all but the freestyle version have available air suspensions, LED lighting packages and utility racks. I have to say they do look cool.
When checking the company’s Facebook page it seems there’s a lot of interest surrounding this super bike, however the company is being pretty tight-lipped about pricing and availability. However, their recent rounds of the cycling circuit makes me think an announcement may be on its way soon.
Like them on Facebook, check their website for updated information, and watch a video of the Athos in action, then let us know what you think? Will Athos be the next big thing in cycling?
