Rc Bikes

RC Bikes are the hottest thing to happen to radio controlled toys since the invention of the category of radio controlled toys and models, period! The kind of innovations that have been introduced into this category have made it one of the most popular genres in the radio controlled toy and hobby market. The introduction of better engines, better chassis and a whole new range of accessories is something that has taken RC Bikes to the next level.

There are few things that can match the excitement and thrills of riding RC Bikes around a track or even on your neighbourhood street. Cars are cool but RC Bikes are definitely cooler by a long margin. The biggest problem with the industry had been the lack of designs and, more importantly, the lack of reliable products that would actually make the RC Bikes' genre popular amongst enthusiasts. However, new designs, replica models as well as the introduction of high quality engines and gyroscope technology has led to the introduction of competitive sports in every single category within RC Bikes.

So what has made the Difference in RC Bikes?
A few years ago, if you decided to buy an RC Bike, all you had to choose from were a few toys that were made in cheap plastic, looked cheap, were fragile and had hardly any performance to speak of. Today, however, that has completely changed and it all begins with what these RC Bikes are built around - the chassis! Once made entirely in hard plastic, today the chassis range allows you to choose from anything between aluminium and carbon fibre. Not only has the chassis strength increased, it also allows you to mount a lot more capable-equipment onto your RC Bikes.

Not least in that category is the quality of shock-absorbers you have available today. Since the shape and design of shockers, for RC Bikes, is different from RC Cars, there was always a question that manufacturers would ask themselves - is it really worth spending the kind of money it takes to start a whole new production line? Thankfully, they answered in the affirmative and today, the entire line of RC Bikes comes with a wonderful range of shockers that are based on hydraulic technology, offering you perfect support for rough rides and even high flying stunts that these RC Bikes are capable of.

The other major development in this category has been the introduction of high powered engines that have replaced the puny electric motors of old. Manufacturers have redesigned nitro-powered and gasoline-powered engines to give you the kind of punching power you need to make your RC Bikes zip around the track. Whether you are buying a high-flying dirt-bike model or just a replica of a superbike model, you are guaranteed to get a model that will leave your RC Cars behind by a long way!

Then there are the other changes that have come in with regard to the kind of wheels these RC Bikes have as well as the tyre technology. There are changes in the motor mounts, the quality of the servos available as well as overall design - all of which have been refined to make RC Bikes an extremely tempting category of radio controlled models for hobbyists around the world.

The competitive World of RC Bikes
Once again, the problem for radio controlled toy and model manufacturers was the wide range of abilities that RC Cars and Trucks had in comparison to these RC Bikes. Cars and trucks could be modified, upgraded and converted into world-class racing machines that people could take into competitions, which also came about as a result of these upgrades and modifications that hobbyists made to their machines. Hobbyists needed a reason to upgrade and modify and competition became their testing ground!

The advantage for RC Cars and Trucks was that most of the parts were interchangeable, from one model to another. Now, RC Bikes have the same advantage as manufacturers are bringing out several models, creating parts for upgrade and not just working on the look-and-feel of the model but focussing on performance. So much so that there are track-based competitions for almost all categories of RC Bikes including track-racing for those that are from the Superbike genre to those that are from the Motocross genre - with jumps and dirt thrown in.

If you choose to make the shift to RC Bikes today, you are guaranteed to get that same level of involvement and enjoyment that any RC Car or truck promises. You have a large number of upgrades to pick and choose from, as well as a whole set of competitions in which you can run your RC Bikes to show off your modification skills. If you haven't tried out RC Bikes till now, then this is the perfect time to make the switch because the genre is just starting to grow and RC Bikes are the radio controlled toys of tomorrow!
