What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

 

For the last 2 years the XStrada Group has been developing a very special mountain bike,  we created this versatile machine with the goal of setting the bar for performance and durability bundled into one very unique riding experience!

Designed to be offered at an outstanding value, the XStrada compliments any persons need for adventure with four distinct yet interchangeable models.

After extensive prototyping we've lined up our suppliers, streamlined fabrication and shipping logistics and have accomplished our goal of creating the ultimate fat bike!

With your help we can continue to mass produce the XStrada, reducing our per unit cost through economy of scale and get this amazing machine in the hands of more customers!

The XStrada Fat Bike is able to be ordered in a variety of configurations and it available with FREE GLOBAL SHIPPING to all EARLY BIRD CONTRIBUTORS!!

XS1 - Single speed cruiser starting at only $995!

XS11 - Versatile 11 speed with Shimano or SRAM components starting at only $1295!

Or amp up the power and further your range with our high torque 52v/35ah 3kw electric mid-drive kit, available for either model and capable of 40+ mph and 35+ miles per charge!  Only +$1249 installed and tested!

 

 

The XStrada was built to transcend the limits of traditional mountain bikes and fat bikes with its bold 7.5" wide tires. The aggressive footprint is wrapped around a lightweight alloy wheel set and allows it to traverse difficult terrain that would otherwise stop conventional bikes. These distinct features offer maximum traction off road yet are comfortable on roads as well. The XStrada's versatility allows you to go farther with more confidence and have a lot more fun while doing it! 

The heart of any great bicycle is its frame and the XStrada is no exception. After extensive testing with various geometry, building materials and components we finally dialed in what we feel is the perfect balance of performance and comfort.  

Each XStrada is hand fabricated and TIG welded to our exacting specifications from 7000 series double butted alloy tubing.  This tube set is common in the aerospace industry and offers an ideal blend of impressive strength to weight ratio and high fatigue and corrosion resistance.

 

 

With high manufacturing standards and quality control, we proudly stand behind every frame with a Life Time Warranty

 

Because of our specific frame design we have created a bike with excellent riding characteristics in a variety of environments.  Either in tight, twisty single track, deep snow or just cruising at the beach you will experience excellent, steering stability and control.  If you decide to increase the pace or steepen the decent we've got you covered, adjust the XStrada/TG inverted suspension on the fly and effortlessly soak up the bumps big and small with 7.5" of adjustable suspension travel!

XStrada TG inverted suspension fork details.

Nitrogen charged with titanium spring/MCU stack, CNC machined crowns, fully adjustable pre-load/dampening and rebound, through axle, 7.5" travel.

Hands Down, we have created an outstanding value and the perfect four season, all-terrain adventure bike!

 

Our XStrada Demo days are hosted at various venues across the USA and Canada with cooperation with local bike shops. It is our ongoing effort for grassroots promotion and all have been an excellent experience!

The positive feedback on our prototype models are very valuable and allowed us to make some great friends and future customers along the way, we expect to do more very soon.

The XStrada is available in three frame sizes specifically designed to fit a wide spectrum of riders, each frame sports our massive 23x7.5" wheels!  Our guide below is very accurate but if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask!

Be sure to take advantage of our early bird discounts! We are offering deals which are hundreds $$$ lower than our projected retail prices and include some excellent bonus items.

  Placing your XStrada Pre-Order is very easy!

1st STEP - Determine if you want a single speed (perfect for casual riding, beaches or light trails) or the 11 speed wide range geared model (complete versatility for all terrain..A trail beast!)​

2nd STEP - If selecting an 11 speed model choose the component group you would like installed!   (Shimano or SRAM groups include rear derailleurs, rear shifter, brand/model free hub body, cassette, cable/housing, chain and specific front chain ring)  

The 52V/35ah (3KW) electric mid drive upgrade is compatible with both the single speed and any of the 11 speed component groups we offer, it can be ordered at the same time as the XStrada and installed/tuned or anytime in the future and will fit our frame sets seamlessly.

 

These items below are included with every Early Bird Order (first 25 units of any model) and colors are able to be selected by the customer - Prior to shipment an email will be sent for you to confirm the color of brakes and pedals you prefer!   And don't forget FREE GLOBAL SHIPPING on every Early Bird Order!   - Total Savings into the Hundreds $$$$

Each Mid-Drive kit is installed and tested prior to shipment and is offered at a promotional crowdfund price of only $1249! (will retail for 1500+$) 

This includes a removable 52v/35ah Samsung lithium cell pack and a brushless motor with custom alloy housing producing a massive 3000 watts (3kw).

 

 

The battery pack and system controller are contained within the weather proof casing and are interfaced via our handlebar mounted throttle/computer module (available in full or half length throttle) which uses embedded GPS technology to accurately gauge speed/trip/odometer readings.  Pedal assistance available with a 12 mag cadence sensor to detect your pedal rotations in real time and provide up to 4 levels of supplemental power to reduce exertion and or increase average speeds.

A 110/220v smart charger is included which can be switched from 3 amp (trickle @ 3hr) to 5 amp (rapid @ 1.5hr)  to ensure a prolonged battery life by integrating with the controllers BMS (battery management system) automating a balanced cell bank charge.

Our jigs and tooling are completed, volume manufacturing relationships in place, samples received to our specifications and component partners ready to ramp up production. With these preliminary steps already completed our lead time to shipment will be drastically reduced.

 

Our team is comprised of a talented and dedicated crew, based in both Canada and the USA, we are all cycling fanatics as well as industrial designers, marketing and logistics specialists so needless to say we all share the same vision, insight and attention to detail which will bring this project to light and on schedule for the world to enjoy. 

 

 

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges

We are raising funds to pay for additional larger volume production of XStrada Fat Bikes to ensure a low per unit pricing. Over the past 48 months we have worked tirelessly to locate and solidify relationships with leading manufacturers, manufacture and distribute. We are confident in the logistics, supply chain and our ability to deliver top quality product on time. Should there be any unexpected setbacks we will be sure to keep our backers updated. We look forward to sharing our journey with all the new members of the XStrada family.
