Is it a tank? A skateboard? A motocross bike? Well, the DTV Shredder ($4,500) -or Dual Tracked Vehicle- is actually all of these things combined into one badass all terrain vehicle, that could change the way we enjoy off-road rides.
Combining the best characteristics of traditional board sports with the power of Motocross and ATVing, this crossover vehicle was designed to be compact enough to fit in the trunk of your car, yet powerful and rideable year round in any weather. With a patented DUAL-CTV Transmission system that converts the riders body movements into smooth carving turns, the DTV Shredder is capable of traveling through sand, snow, trials and even mountainsides at a top speed of 25 mph (40kmh). Specs include: a powerful 4-stroke 196cc gasoline engine (pumping out 14 hp), 2 reinforced rubber tank-treads, skateboard deck, 6-point articulating suspension, cast aluminum swing arms, and a total weight of 280lbs. Even though the DTV Shredder primarily targets adrenaline junkies (it was developed in conjunction with top X-Game athletes), it could very well double as a rugged, multi-application workhorse for law enforcement, military, hunting, farming and other industries. Needless to say we can’t wait to try this bad boy! via
