Last week we featured a report about an upcoming moon race. While our lawyers advised us to refrain from mentioning the organisers to prevent legal complications recent events make it hard not to at least pick up the topic again.
So, what happened that brought on the need to return to the subject of the moon race? Aopoa released its newest product, a pure blood racing bike from Xi’an space adjusted for human need. Moreover, that is exciting news.
The Nox, which is the name of the bike, is direct competition to the Drake Dragonfly. While the Dragonfly is currently dominating the bike market, it is safe to say it is about to get obliterated. Long time readers might know our opinion about Drake. Nonetheless, true to the Monocle Times tradition we will try to be as impartial as possible.
Why are we so excited about this release? It is simple, even after a quick look it is clear that with the Nox on the market not even idiots would still buy a Dragonfly. As in impartial poll, provided by ‘The Ladies of Star Citizen’ shows only 11% of the universe has a worse taste than the average idiot, which is a surprisingly small number.
Now that we have covered the Drake side with that we take a look at the upsides of the Nox. When building the Nox, Aopoa made it not only look a lot nicer than the Dragonfly but also into a real racer. While still counting as an open canopy craft it features a front screen which will protect you from debris on planetary surfaces or micro asteroids when cruising in space.
To come full circle, how is this related to the event covered last week. Quite simple the race gives us the chance to see just how much better the Nox is then Dragonfly. While we are still trying to confirm whether or not the Nox’s is a valid contender, we will keep you up to date on the developments.
