Take-off Practice Youtube Clip

Link above to a short clip showing us practicing launching on the BajaBoard. No bindings were installed at the time of filming, so had to be a little careful.

BajaBoard 12kW electric board

Absolutely! And especially as the board has pretty low rolling resistance with the thin tyres, whenever you are going downhill, you don't actually need any power...unless you want to go crazy fast. Quick update: most of our fabricated parts are finished. Assembly day is coming pretty soon. We are ps...

BajaBoard 12kW electric board

What I have done is govern my 6000w Etrike recumbent to 200w through a ebike cycle computer. That way you can have a off road mode 6000w and street mode. Its perfectly legal in QLD. There is a difference between a motor consuming 200w and actually putting that to the ground so a e bike dyno is a ha...

its really a pity that ridding this an any public land (non privately owned and with permission) will/could land you in jail in QLD Oops! Perhaps should've checked the VIC regs as well before making our video ( link ) It is a shame. On the other hand, if we did get arrested it would be good for pub...

BajaBoard 12kW electric board

Thanks Glenn. Power doesn't necessarily corrolate top speed. We are designing the board more for low end power, because it's going to have to accelerate pretty quickly in some pretty boggy terrain. Plus it has no gearbox. With the particular motors we use, we can actually increase their speed if we ...

BajaBoard 12kW electric board

Cheers Richo. :) We actually have a proof of concept prototype up and running. ( video here ) It can theoretically do ~75-80km/h on 12inch wheels. Having said that, we've only tested it up to ~55km/h before some sensibility came into play to slow down :p It's unlikely (or at least not advisable) tha...
