Alright, I saw that little bitty quarter at the end of the driveway. Post a clip of you coming off of that. That would definitely sell me on terrablades!

I'd suggest some protective gear (at least a helmet) in your "advertorial". It looks like an accident waiting to happen for those with less experience than you. Otherwise, looks like lots of fun for those that don't want to skate purely for fitness.

pads are a good thing, this was just to show the power of the motor it could have pulled allot more than that. 13,000 watt motor, with 48 volts the rig will do 48 mph with that motor, the torque is amazing.

As for fitness. You will get a huge burn in the legs going off road, couple hours tooling around a day you will become like Iron not only legs back but upper body holding the rig too. Its a decent core , and strength builder, not so much cardio. The kite also is a great strength builder. The skates weigh about 8 pounds each side not including the ski boots, so its kind of the workout one would get skiing. Pure skating is better for cardio and if you racing better overall.

for any trip beyond the neighborhood its helmet, 3/4 body armor, knee pads, chest protector, mountainboard gloves. for even heavier assualts it hocky pants and hocky chest protector as well in that equation. also have knee braces for even more heavier stuff. since most of this experimental testing many different armor ideas this picture is overkill but it would be maximum padding if you was to say be in a very rocky, steep place.

This picture is over a year old was testing different padding, after getting a collasped a lung, and serveral broken ribs in a crash on Mammoth mountain.

Since then have improved the skates, and we have learned how to use them better. We hardly stumble at all now, very solid and smooth off-road skating. knock on wood!

This is overkill to the extreme, possibly might try to build some custom up the road.

This is the setup I have pretty much found works best.

for the beach nothing really is needed, but knee pads

guy on the wagon and me are both 44 years old, its getting harder to crash so.. maybe back when things broke less easy. Still the idea of pulling him over that ramp was on my mind!
