What incline will lead to a burnout?


Recommended Posts

THe Veterans Highway to Whiteface mountain just opened in the Adirondacks. About a 7 mile drive to the top 15 miles from Downtown Lake Placid.

"The road rises 2300 feet in 5 miles"

About a 9% incline, Will an EUC over heat ?

The wheel won't "burnout", it would tilt back when overheat, and you have to wait it to be cooled to ride again. Not sure about KS wheels, but I'm pretty sure MSP can handle it.

I just climbed about 1000 ft in 2 miles on my 84v Nik on a hot day. I am not light. The wheel overheated going both up and down a few times, which its never done before. It's possible my fan isn't working properly, so I'm planning to add a few fans and a switch and try again.
