The second version of Ruiter’s “The Sno-Ped,” the V2 is a geometrically defined vehicle that is both “blunt and brutal” and combines the elements of mechanical exposure, darkness and winter beauty. Much like the Ruiter’s first Snoped, Version 2 is designed as an upright single-track snow-bike inspired by stripped-down café racer motorcycles. Unlike other snow vehicles, which are designed to complement their surroundings, the Snoped V2 is intended to stand in stark contrast with the environment it inhabits. It combines unnatural forms with elements of fashion to blur the line between battling nature and adapting to it.
