Some data about the conditions, to the best of my knowledge:

  • Temperature: 9-10 degrees C (~50F), i.e. a pretty cold day as far as over-heating tests goes
  • Lap length (from lowest point to the peak): ~500 meters (~ 0.3 miles)
  • Average incline: 11 degrees
  • Elevation difference: 62 meters (204 feet)
  • Weigh-in fully geared and with backpack: ~94 kg (207 pounds)

Now, this is not really an MTV generation video (more like slow TV meets EUC), so while I don't want to necessarily give out any spoilers I'd say for the benefit of the impatient that the results are about what you expect, with the Nikola coming out on top.

(Shout-out to fellow V10F sufferer @maltocs!)

 

Great test. Doing the math, with my weight you did the equivalent of 2000 ft elevation gain over 3 miles without a heat overload! And there is actually heat build-up braking as well (I've overloaded the V10F going down very steep hills before). So far it sounds like what I was expecting from the V10F. This just might be my next great wheel! Thanks for sticking it out for all those laps in the name of science.
