The current method for getting back to the top of the hill/mountain is via an uplift vehicle which maybe a van or van with trailer or in holiday resorts... a ski lift.
In the event that the above modes of transportation not being available, it would appear a perfect solution for members of the cycling community who enjoy the more extreme end of the sport.
Anyone......can ride up a hill.....
Also, it seems like a pretty successful way to remove a lot of the "athlete" from the sport. :-/
Its just another fun toy. I put 2.5 Hookworms on it, and its the most fun thing to rip around town on, and I don't have the fear of getting pulled over and being ticketed for being a hooligan like I do on the supermoto. I pull my daughter and we pass roadies (with the motor off, pedaling like hell) and have a laugh.
Too much compromise in these E-bikes right now.
P.S. Bjørn should shoot a Brett Tippie video on that thing.
YOU HAVE TO EARN YOUR TURNS! not rely on a little engine to push your lazy butt up a hill!
And NOT mountain biking by the way.
