As I'm sure you can imagine, the man who created and engineered our patented Virtual Link System we use on our Sonix and Xeon full suspension bikes is a pretty smart cookie. Well, smart is sort of an understatement since Neal Saiki is actually a rocket scientist. He is a former poject manager for NASA. He's also responsible for creating the first human powered helicopter. A little closer to home, he's designed bicycles for some of the biggest names in the industry like Haro, Santa Cruz, and Mountain Cycle. Yeah, he's a smart guy alright.
Neal has a new project he's been working on for the past few years: electric motorcycles. Think these are cheesy little electric bikes you'd likely see putting along in the slow lane? Think again. Neal's Zero X electric dirt bike accelerates from 0 to 30mph in less than 2 seconds. In fact, they rival the performance of many 250cc gas-powered bikes in terms of power and speed.
With so much attention being given to alternative-fuel vehicles, Neal's Zero X is really starting to get some attention in the media.
