When hiking a mountain there’s usually only one goal in mind, the summit. The stunning vista and singularity of a mountain’s peak is what draws people. However in reality, the top is only the halfway point and the long walk back never has same exciting thrill as going up.
However, the German company Bergmonch wants to offer hikers something else to look forwards to on the way down. They’ve designed an integrated collapsible bike system that allows you to hike up a mountainside and bike down. The lightweight system folds down into a rucksack, allowing hikers to climb using both hands. Once at the top, the pack unfolds to create a rugged trail scooter that can be used to zip back down the hill. Riders can stand or knee depending on the conditions.
