Ego-kits is a company which make throttle controlled electric engine kits to attach to your downhill bike to get you up to the top of hills which you would normally not be able to reach on a DH bike unless you walked. It was started by 3 guys who used to work with me at Kiska and are all avid bikers. They were the winners of the ISPO Brandnew Award 2011 with their kits and had a booth at the show in Munich so I stopped by to say hi and snap a few photos. Check out their website here for more info.

    Funny that a few days ago I stumbled upon their site. I have to admit that is a great product but your pictures are better then what is on their site.
    If the price of oil goes up, it is a smart choice.

    thanks man, yea it’s very cool for sure. Wouldn’t mind one myself.
    I wish they would hurry up with the EXC version of the KTM zero emissions bike though. I already rode the SX version a couple of years ago now and it was seriously impressive.
    By the way, they moved the burnt out car finally! Only took 6 weeks.
