Christini All Wheel Drive to Launch Line of Production AWD Fat Bikes with Support of Cycling Expedition Across Antarctica

PHILADELPHIA, PA NOVEMBER 03, 2016

After a ten year break in production of All Whe
el Drive mountain bikes, Christini’s re-launch of their original design concepts has taken the company into the popular Fatbike segment. Initially offering both a 4″ split frame and a 5″ wide tire design, the bikes will feature Christini’s patented AWD system providing unmatched traction and control while enabling a rider to conquer the toughest conditions. These two models will also have an electric assist option utilizing a mid drive motor and high capacity battery.
“We are excited to get back to our roots in the bicycle industry and provide Fatbike enthusiasts with the unmatched traction of AWD,” said Steve Christini “Kate Leeming has been testing the AWD Fat bike prototypes for several years now, and her success has proven that our AWD design will offer something truly unique to the Fatbike market.”
Kate Leeming is one of the worlds most accomplished athletes having cycled across every continent except Antarctica. She intends to be the first person to accomplish this amazing journey on board this unique AWD Fatbike. To assist with this effort, Christini AWD has launched a crowdfunding campaign to support Kate’s expedition.

We welcome anyone to join in this effort at:

Christini mountain bikes were first introduced back in 2001 with production AWD hardtail and full suspension models. The company partnered with several small builders and some larger companies to make a unique, all purpose, trail bike that could traverse even the most difficult trails. The proprietary AWD system is entirely enclosed within the frame and head tube of the bike and is extremely efficient, resulting in less than 1% power loss while adding less than 2.5 lbs total weight to the bike. Traction and safety in wet and treacherous terrain are dramatically improved by AWD.

Individuals interested in purchasing a CHRISTINI AWD Fatbike should contact the company at 215-351-9895 or visit the CHRISTINI AWD Bicycle website at http://www.christinibicycles.com.

CHRISTINI All Wheel Drive Motorcycles awarded contract to supply US Air Force with AWD 450E Military edition motorcycles

AWD 450 Military Left Side F Angle

Christini Technologies Inc. (CTI) announces the awarding of a contract from the U.S. Air Force for the delivery of 54 CHRISTINI All Wheel Drive 450E Military Edition motorcycles. The award was the result of an open bidding process. Christini had previously delivered All Wheel Drive motorcycles to the U.S. Navy, U.S. Border Patrol, UK military, UAE, Jordan, and other NATO forces, they were able to introduce staff rostering software to the community.

 

Steve Christini, CEO of CTI commented: “After rigorous testing and evaluation of our All Wheel Drive motorcycles by many different military units, Christini Technologies has emerged as the manufacturer providing the technology and capabilities required by the US Special Forces. This significant Air Force order validates the safety and performance benefits our AWD motorcycle technology provides to riders of all skill levels. The USAF had other options in conventional rear wheel drive machines, however, our AWD motorcycle better fit their needs for a safer and more capable motorcycle under the toughest of conditions.  We are pleased to be able to offer a technology that will help accomplish the USAF missions and look forward to continuing to grow our sales and presence as a preferred provider for the US military.”

 

Christini AWD is partnering with Tactical Mobility Training (TMT) of Fayetteville, NC for the off road motorcycle training as well as maintenance training for the USAF.  Over the past ten years, Tactical Mobility Training (TMT) has trained SOF forces of the military for troops deploying to Afghanistan, Africa, and the Middle East using a wide range of mobility equipment.  To properly train our military, TMT sought to identify a platform that could traverse the same paths as horses and personnel; motorcycles were an obvious choice.  After significant testing, and more than 200 troops riding the Christini AWD machines, TMT partnered with CTI to field a military grade motorcycle that was safer and more capable.  The result is a specialized training program that takes personnel through flat, sandy, urban, and mountainous terrain to prove that motorcycles are a game-changer on the battlefield.

 

The contract award comes after a very favorable article which appeared in the military news magazine We Are The Mighty in which the CTI motorcycle was heralded as the best option for military use: http://www.wearethemighty.com/articles/heres-the-motorcycle-of-choice-for-special-operators

 

CHRISTINI AWD has been a pioneer in the design and development of AWD for motorcycles producing a product with an established history of commercial and racing success. CHRISTINI’s patented AWD motorcycle technology features a durable rigid series of shafts and gears to power the front wheel. The proprietary AWD system is entirely enclosed within the frame and head tube of the motorcycle and is extremely efficient, resulting in less than 1% power loss while adding less than 15 lbs total weight to the motorcycle. Traction and safety in wet and treacherous terrain both on and off road are dramatically improved by AWD, enabling a broad range of riders to achieve performance levels far superior to a normal rear wheel drive motorcycle.

CHRISTINI All Wheel Drive to Launch II-Track Snow Utility Bike

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Click to view PDF version)

CHRISTINI All Wheel Drive Motorcycles announces the development of their II-Track Snow Bike system for use in both recreation and military applications. This two track system will utilize the All Wheel Drive technology of the CHRISTINI AWD Motorcycle platform to power both the front and rear of the machine via a patent pending front track system. The front track system will enable the already versatile CHRISTINI AWD Motorcycle to be used as a year round machine grabbing traction in every condition imaginable.

How it Works:
The system will utilize a small snow track that will be centered between a split ski to assist in flotation. The track will be positioned between the front forks and driven from the front hub which in turn is powered by the AWD drive system. The track will be integrated into the split ski configuration in a way that is adjustable for various conditions from hard packed snow, soft powder, mud, and sand. Because the track will be positioned in the front of the machine, it will also be used as a braking system as well as an additional traction source.

Compatibility:
The CHRISTINI AWD Motorcycle has a standard dirt bike swing arm configuration which makes it compatible with standard snow track systems allowing them to work in conjunction with the CHRISTINI II-Track. To use the II-Track system, a rider will have to have a CHRISTINI AWD 450 four stroke or 300 two stroke motorcycle as the base machine. CHRISTINI AWD Motorcycles start at $8,395 MSRP.
