The SK-eRIDE is Scott’s curiously appealing winter approach bike

An e-bike concept like no other

If you thought swapping out your wheels for skis would help you escape the e-bike revolution, think again.

While the Scott SK-eRIDE concept might seem ridiculous at first, it’s actually a pretty neat solution for the regular backcountry skier who doesn’t want to rely on a car or public transport to get around with all their equipment.

The SK-eRIDE is Scott’s vision of a winter approach bike, there to help you ski-tour and explore your snowy surroundings while helping you to conserve your energy for when you really need it.

The bike’s kitted out to carry all of your equipment — skis, boots and moka pots galore — while keeping it secure and stabilised with the pedal-assisted Axis EVO making light work of the load bearing. It even features a CrossCall Trekker-X4 phone and SONdelux 12-disc dynamo hub.

If ski-touring is your bag, then maybe the Scott SK-eRIDE is just the thing you need to reach the areas that a car can’t reach.
