Feedback from a test pilot
Meet our test pilot, Christoph. He was one of the first to receive a test bike.
He has been with us testing Podbike since early December 2019.
And guess what, a nice surprise for our German fans: Christoph is from Germany.
So, we thought it would be nice with a video in the German language for you 🙂 The rest of us will need to read the text in English.
Christoph tells he is from Schwäbisch- Hall in southern Germany.
He drives a distance of about 30 km every day. Because of the windy and rainy weather in this region of Norway, he was interested in the Podbike. It was too cumbersome for him to put on rainproof clothing all the time. That is why the Podbike is the optimal solution for him to be able to ride a bike even in bad weather.
Christoph has had many opportunities to test the window screen wiper. He is satisfied with the result.
He remembers a special day in Januar. The weather forecast reported slippery roads and ice. But, he did not trust the prediction, so he chose to bike with the regular (summer) tires. It was a mistake, the road was frozen in a curve. Braking was hardly possible and he slid against a curb. He was happy he used the Podbike, it would have been a bad fall with a normal bike. After this experience, he put on his studded tires. The next day he was able to cope well on slippery and icy conditions.
He states the Podbike has so far completely convinced him.
