Hi, everybody!. English is not my native language, sorry. I'm from Siberia, Russia. There is place more off-road then roads..))) So extra-wide EUC is very useful here and I designed and made my own project Bublik-18 === Tyre 18x9.5 2 kW Motor wheel - china's motor, (used in CityCoco scooter) Electronics - Russian production Battery - 64x18650, 60V (need 2x more) Pedals - KS16 Frame - steel/aluminum self-made Videos of tests: on clay: on forest soil: on forest paths:
Hi all, After a recent brush with some woodland fixtures (crashed into a tree), my sore knee and shoulders are reminding me to pack up a bit better. Even though I go at "low" speeds you would expect to go on forest / MTB trails, the sudden impact of a tree or branch can be surprisingly unpleasant. As far as the upper body goes I'm trying to decide between going full motocross (Leatt 5.5 type) and the full body D3O stuff. (Looking at https://www.xionpg.com) I imagine the hard shell is the absolute best, only the looks and inability to wear something over it hold me back. (Not really looking to put on a cooling inner shell, then the body armor then a top cover) Anyone have experience greeting a branch at high speeds with D3O? 😬
Hi, I unexpectedly found myself on a gravel track the other day for the first time. I missed a turn and Google Maps sent me down a forest track. I decided to give it a shot because it didn't seem too rough, but about halfway in, it got pretty gnarly (glad I'd been practising low-speed turns; being able to make sharp turns at less than 5 km/h to avoid big rocks definitely saved the day!). Luckily, I'd decided to strap my (cheap) Gopro (knock off) to my helmet that day, for the first time, so I actually have footage of the ride. My question is...how strong is the V8's axle (I weight 77 kg / 170 lb fully dressed and wearing winter coat + all protective gear) and how bad is this kind of track for the V8? Do I risk damaging the wheel on the kind of terrain shown below (and going the speed I was going)? Thanks! P.S. Sorry for the shaky footage...no image stabilisation...
