First 2x2 bikes to race the Roof

The Witness - Wheels - - BIKING - — WR.

CHRIS­TINI SA, sole dis­trib­u­tor of Chris­tini AWD mo­tor­cy­cles in SA, has put to­gether a team of ta­lented en­duro rid­ers to take on the 2015 Roof of Africa Xtreme en­duro from De­cem­ber 2 to De­cem­ber 5.

Sim­i­lar to 4x4 cars, the front wheel can be en­gaged on de­mand to drive both wheels on the bike, but for the most part, the driv­ers can ride be­ing pushed by the rear wheel only.

Chris­tini SA said the Roof pro­vides the best stage pos­si­ble to show­case abil­i­ties of their bikes’ 2x2 power.

“The Roof of Africa has earned its ti­tle as the Mother of Hard En­duros as it is the tough­est dirt-bik­ing en­duro in Africa, with some 400 com­peti­tors com­pet­ing this year, not to men­tion the tens of thou­sands of spec­ta­tors.

“The race crosses some of the most bru­tal ter­rain known to en­duro rac­ing. It’s ex­actly here where the Chris­tini SA team hopes to make use of the all­wheel drive sys­tem and have the mo­tor­cy­cles lit­er­ally pull them­selves out of sticky sit­u­a­tion and over seem­ingly im­pos­si­ble in­clines,” said a me­dia state­ment.
