DTV Shredder

What is it? Why do you want it? Where can you get it? How much?
powered off-road board extreme sports, fun BGP Werks $3,999 (+ shipping)

The DTV Shredder is a crazy contraption which has been designed and built by the young Canadian company BPG Werks.

The DTV Shredder is basically a tracked skateboard which is powered by a small 15 hp 4-stroke Honda go-cart engine. But with a weight of just 85 lbs (38 kgs) the engine is more than capable of making the DTV Shredder perform stunts, jumps and tricks. It can even tow a car!

Top speed of the DTV Shredder is a scary 30 mph, and if it wasn't for the sturdy carbon-fiber handlebar - fitted to the later prototypes - then staying on would be next to impossible. The handlebar also houses the throttle control and cutoff switch. To make the DTV Shredder easier to transport, the handle folds down to allow it to fit in the back of a car.

The DTV Shredder features 3 inches of suspension travel, a four foot turning circle, and can climb a slope of 40 degrees.

Similar to a skateboard, steering of the DTV Shredder accomplished by leaning on the tilting foot platform, which independently alters the speed of each track. The pivoting handle provides the rider with extra balance and stability.

The one gallon (3.8 l) fuel tank should be good for around 30 miles (48 km) or one hour of riding. The tracks are designed to power over just about any terrain - including deep powder snow. It also has a sealed carburetor that allows it to cross water of depths up to 10 inches (25 cm).
