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).
