AX Electric – Experience and Future

The Arenacross crew have spent the last 9 days at Motorcycle Live, giving over 1000 bike crazy kids the chance to take to an AX track. For over 500 of these lucky participants, this was the first time they’ve ever slung their leg over a dirtbike – making the AX Electric Bike Experience the most successful kids bike launch of all time.

Kids from the age of three to twelve got to try out the ultra-cool, exclusive range of Kuberg electric bikes on one of the two purpose built tracks for all abilities. From the minute they signed on, the youngsters were given the full AX Experience, including being kitted up from head to toe to look just like AX Ambassador, fan favourite and super-slick Freestyler Dan Whitby. The tracks were built right next to the FMX Live Arena, where the AX guys were putting on 3 shows a day, featuring some of the hottest Freestyle talent from around the world. Whilst FMX Live was just a taster of the Arenacross Tour, the atmosphere, lights, lasers and pumping soundtrack coming from the Arena were enough to instill excitement and determination within all of the kids trying out the electric bikes.

The experience included 1 on 1 coaching by some incredibly skilled (and patient!) MCF Instructors. These guys made sure everyone who rode, went away knowing the fundamental skills and techniques of how to ride a bike. Something which is majorly impressive considering that for many of those taking to the tracks this was the first time they’d ever ridden a bike! A testament to the attention and dedication of the MCF staff, were the cracking smiles from both parents and children as they realise that their two-wheeled journey with Arenacross has only just begun!

AX provides three different electric bike packages; AX Start, AX Cross and AX Pro which vary depending on size and ability. Packages start from £1,299 and each package comes with over £600’s worth of extras, including new AX race kit and helmet, training day as members of the AX Academy, AX Academy Race Licence, personal accident insurance, a family ticket to Arenacross 2018 and entry into our new AX Park Series. The added value is second to none and we hope it will contribute to the growth of the sport to those who matter – the MX youths!

As well as encouraging a whole new generation of aspiring AX riders, our crazy Freestylers left 40,000 Motorcycle Live show-goers grabbing the edge of their seats as they offered a taste of what’s to come on the fast approaching 2018 tour. These global freestyle Motorcross stars met the fans after every show for a quick selfie and autograph session.
