The White ICE Cycle is based on ICE's Sprint design but adds specialized equipment
Leijerstam believes the trike will give her a crucial advantage over fat bikes
Maria Leijerstam is in the midst of attempting a trip to the South Pole on a custom-built ICE trike
ICE estimates that the specialized polar trike would cost 10 times the price of a standard Sprint
Last winter, polar explorer Eric Larsen attempted to become the first person to cycle to the South Pole. Continually stymied by deep, unrideable snow, Larsen fell behind schedule and was forced to abandon the attempt. This year, several others are taking up the challenge. Thirty-five year-old British adventurer Maria Leijerstam is hoping the ticket to success is a fat-tired recumbent trike built to task.
