Here’s a look at a really wild off-road vehicle that looks like something out of the Jetsons. The DVT Shredder, or Dual-Tracked Vehicle, is a unique off-road vehicle that is a blend of a number of vehicles. It’s part Segway, part skateboard, part Jet Ski, and it’s something the company says could have great value as a cutting-edge military unit (see the video below).
With a peak top speed of 30 mph, the vehicle features a traditional skateboard deck-like platform with traditional skateboard trucks, but it is powered by an engine that runs two tank-threads that allow the vehicle to cover terrains ranging from snow, sand and dirt trails.
BPG Werks, the company that designed the DTV Shredder, is actually accepting down payments for the machines. The company is based out of Canada, and we noticed it does has a Bombardier family member noted as a “team rider.” It will be interesting to see if this vehicle will be used by our military or cleared for sale for recreational use, or if it will get support from a larger company such as Bombardier or Bombardier Recreation Products (BRP). The down payment ($250) for the DVT Shredder is said to be fully refundable, but we’re not exactly clear on an actual sale date for the vehicle. Either way, it’s pretty cool. Check out the video below.
