Electric Motors on TRAMPA Mountainboards are a complete game changer! They make ripping up the hill or across the flat just as much fun as free wheeling down! Its unbelievable just how addictive these high performance motorised boards are! Lab-Rats (i mean team riders) at the TRAMPA HQ have pretty given up using their cars to commute to work in favor of their E-Board as they easily beat traffic at rush hour & there is nothing better than boarding into work watching the sun come up or even more so when riding home from work, (preferably past the pub!) & with a potential range of well over 50 kilometers (depends on the batteries & battery box used) can easily see in a few pubs on the extended route home, which usually happens on a nice warm day :-)
Using 16 inch wide ATB Trucks & 8 inch tyres as standard, Mountainboards are larger in all round size compared to the other Boards on the TRAMPA site & as their name suggests they were designed for off road use. Arguably an Electric Mountainboard perform best in this off road environment but they can also be used in other environments & can easily be modified to take fit Slick Cut road tyres or the new mini 6.5 Inch URBAN tyres & even the new 5 inch Gummies Tyres can be fitted to make a nice selection of combinations from one deck.
TRAMPA BOARDS Ltd is first & foremost a mountain board company, for over 15 years our shining reputation of making the very best quality Mountainboards & highest performing components proceeds us. When we first stepped into the electric board market we were determined that what ever we were going to make it had to be the very best to match our existing products reputation & the secret weapon that gives TRAMPA's electric products the edge on performance over its competition is the fact we have made everything we use specifically for the purpose at hand not begged borrowed or stolen components from other industries more than anything by the fact we are able to use 12s Power though connection to the amazing VESC 6 speed controller.
Back in 2016 TRAMPA BOARDS Ltd teamed up with the Yoda of Electronic Speed Controllers - Benjamin Vedder. Benjamin is the inventer & creator of the VESC Dynasty of products, The V in VESC is for the V in Vedder as the name VESC is an acronym of the name Vedder Electronic Speed Controller. The intention of the partnership was to put the very best performing speed controller on the very best performing board to bring the customer the very best experience there could possibly be! And the results have been sensational!
12s Batteries are like the equivalent of a V12 motor in a car, its loads of power! The Genuine VESC 6 is the only product on the market that can truly handle the power of high performance 12s batteries. Using the VESC TOOL, (TheVESC-TOOL is an app which you get access to once you have made your VESC 6 purchase with your board & is now available as an app for your Android device connecting through the NRF Dongle that plugs into the VESC), allows you to connect remotely to make adjustments to the power & performance of your board... you can give yourself max performance like the or setup for beginners is what its all about for TRAMPA :-)
There has been some controversy over the VESC, its Trade Mark, the exclusivity with TRAMPA & in particular its RRP... But the truth is its taken a huge amount of investment from such a small company to get this special product off the ground, including lots of legal costs regarding the Trade Mark of the VESC on behalf of Bejamin. The Trade Mark was required because when you are demanding the very best guaranteed performance that only the very finest genuine components are used in its production to insure the reputed quality for the goodness of the customer in an attempt to prevent cheap unsafe inferior copies from entering the market like what seems to be happening. There are currently no speed controllers on the market other than the Genuine VESC6 that can truely handle 12s power, cheap imitations already exist and make their claims that they can handle the power as we do, so be careful not to purchase cheap imitations or copies if you wish to get the genuine power. Currently the VESC 6 Speed Controller is being exclusively produced & sold through TRAMPA.
Do i want a Single motor or Twin Motor Deck?
As i have already explained TRAMPA's Electric Mountainboard decks have highly impressive performance & of course everybody dreams of all the power thinking of purchasing the TWIN Motor board, but the problem is the TWIN Motor decks are not cheap to buy, a single motor board has nearly the same experience at not quite all the cost of a Twin. When you take a Twin, you need two of everything... two motor mounts, two motors, two speed controllers & of course after the initial purchase of the deck you then need all the extra batteries & chargers & the truth is it can get quite an expensive job if running on a budget, however the point im trying to make is that as our performance is so good, our cheaper Single Motor TRAMPA Mountain Board, will give you approx the same kind of performance if not a bit more performance than what you would expect to get from any other brand of electric board using Twin motors...!! TRAMPA Boads are that good!
A single motor TRAMPA Mountainboard Deck will happily travel on any hard packed or slightly loose surface, a single motor deck has bags of power through the gearing options and you or able to go up and down steep hills with 25º gradients no problem at all! However, the amazing TWIN motor Decks, although they cost considerably more than the single motor decks have almost more than double the performance & if money is no object or you just cant live without all the power under your feet then a TWIN Mountainboard will give you the kind of performance you have always dreamed off!
Using twin motors Means you have double the grip & regardless of the terrain you riding on you will accelerate so fast it's difficult to stay on the board :-) Depending on your skills it's possible to wheelie & get the backend to step out on loose surfaces like the rally car! & they can easy handle 30° slopes no problem!! And as there are two motors they are under substantially less strain which means they run even more efficiently, staying cooler, demanding less power drain from the batteries, giving you better range from your batteries... OH Amazing!!
But if cruising along at 30kmph is not fast enough for you, not only are TWIN Motor decks much faster at accelerating than single motor decks, but there are many benefits to using a TWIN motor setup, such as increased battery range, using twin motors makes climbing long steep hills much easier as the motors are under at lot less strain but when you are in off road situations the grip is much more than a single motor setup, TWIN Motor Mountainboard setup's are seriously expensive but so much XXXXXXX fun, they are well worth the investment!
So its your preference as to whether you take the Single motor setup or if you dare take the insane TWIN motor setup! To be honest, 30kmph (Which is not the speed limit for a single motor deck) is really fast on an off road board. Crashing at this sort of speed is likely to cause injury, (so its important to always ride in as much protection as possible & always be aware of your surroundings & route) but due to the tunability of our products, the Mountainboard decks can be set up to be very very stable to handle the higher speeds & unlike other brands boards do not wobble easily at high speed & with a small amount of practice mature riders will soon be achieving good speed, enjoying the thrill whilst still having ample amounts of power in the tank for more speed should they want it and that kind of performance can be achieved by using just a single motor setup, is enhanced using Twin Motor setup....!
Never tried an Battery Powered Board before? Well now is the time as the high performance equipment TRAMPA offers today is light whilst strong & more powerful than ever imagined!
To describe what it feels like to ride the twin-engine Electric mountain board over rough terrain is kind of beyond words, i say this because in order for snowboarding or surfing to be at its best we really rely on the weather & were all chasing that perfect moment, & when it does come it doesn't last long & often some punk may have beaten you to it to make the first line down which inevitably spoils your ride. Where as riding the E-Board is like being on endless wave or the perfect slope of fresh snow that just goes on forever or at least until your feet are burning so bad & you need a break from all the carves! The feeling of being able to continuously link small & massive carve turns for as far & as wide as the route will take you is just sensational. As a life long extreme athlete exposed to most of the board & wheeled sports that have been out there from Quad skates, bmx & Skateboard as a kid to snowboard Longboard & MotorX as an adult, i can honestly tell you that it feels like the power from MotorX bike placed on a Snowboard but riding permanently in the most amazing Super tube in the sunniest best condition! just amazing! :-)
As you will expect, TRAMPA has raised the bar in terms of quality & performance across the entire industry, as every electric product in the TRAMPA range uses only the very lightest & best performing materials available. The individual parts combine perfectly thought out the entire product range & TRAMPA's Electric Powered Boards have stunningly good performance :-)
TRAMPA is famed for using only the very lightest, strongest, best performing genuine materials in all of the products it produces. We do this because we as riders demand the maximum performance experience possible & with the intention that nothing will ever fail, especially when you maybe pushing the limits of whats capable. So it will come as no surprise for you to hear that everything in a TRAMPA Electric Drive trains has been made to the same high performance standards & having had all of its parts custom designed using the finest of ingredients, combine to make what we refer to as 'wonder products' :-) All these tiny details in the parts we use helps everything connect together perfectly, our motor mounts construct like a 'mechanic dream'. All of our different Drive Train assemblies are individual items of beauty with performance that more than matches the good looks! Although its been quite some time coming our intention from the very start was never to rush the project & to have time to test & re-consider all the little details we may have missed in the drawings with the intention of raising the bar on the entire scene & for sure we feel we have certainly gone a long way beyond achieving this target with all the new E-Products we have produced, by going bigger & better in every instance where we are compared.... This demand for high quality combined with well thought out & easy construction designs means we have gained stunningly good results for you to enjoy! :-)

TRAMPA's Electric Mountainboard is honestly just AMAZING! Whether you take Single motor or Twin motor, (TWIN motors gives you twice as much grip (brilliant for off road) but not twice as much speed) & once your hooked up into the correct sized power source (12s Battery is perfect - you will need 2 x 12s batteries for twin motors) & tuned the VESC to your personal requirement, the performance is quite literally breath taking!
Using the equipment we offer on this website & then hooking up into a strong battery (such as the 12s mentioned earlier) will allow you to gain speeds over 50kmph... Although this high speed is audibly very appealing it is also a very dangerous speed when things go wrong & its inevitable some guys will have accidents of which we do not wish to be held responsible for powering you along at such speeds, so for the now you will need to source & fit your own Batteries in order to eliminate TRAMPA from some of the Liabilities it would face in the result of a terrible accident... We know from our own experiences in Mountainboarding without motors, just how some customers are likely to behave, especially when riding such a powerful beast & its a good thing for TRAMPA that the customer must hook up their own battery as this shows it was their own choice to add so much power to do so an not our's...
So to make the your Electric Mountainboard move, you will still need to purchase some additional items that can be found on other websites... The Minimum of components needed to complete a Single or TWIN drive board are showing below
Minimum of 1x 10s or preferably 12s Battery Pack per motor (either LiPo pouches or Li-Ion round cell packs) with High Continuous Discharge current, 12s will give you the highest performance, for example, the battry can be made from 2x 6s LiPo packs, (minimum 5800mAh each or preferably more) with 25C+ rated (The higher the C rating the better) or you can custom make your own battery along the lines of 10-12s, 2-4P (p= parralell) battery pack, spot welded from 18650 round cells, 20A+ continuous discharge per cell (eg. LG INR18650-HG2 3000mAh-20A).
TRAMPA's amazingly sturdy whilst incredibly lightweight Carbon Fiber 12s MONSTER Box will easily fit 4x 6s 6200MaH 40c Zippy compact batteries which when harnessed together correctly makes TWIN 12s MONSTER!! 2x (2x6s) batteries looped together) makes TWIN 12s (you need 4x 6s Batteries total for twin 12s motor). The power is passed through XT90s Anti Spark Connectors & 50Amp Fuses (in case anything goes wrong) directly into the VESC. You will need 2 VESC for Twin Motor, 1 VESC for each motor.
TWIN 12s Power is usually more power than most riders can handle but if 12s power is not enough for you the MONSTER BOX is also plenty big enough to house custom made batteries for the few out there that are crazy enough to try, you can fit up to 80x 18650 cells which is MASSIVE POWER, insane range & amazing performance!! Using cell spacers you can harness together custom made batteries packs... you can create & fit options such as 12s6P, 11s7P or 10s8P - OMG AMAZING!!! Watch this space for development in this area from TRAMPA.
TWIN motor decks do not give you higher top end speed, the top speed is usually limited to the battery used & the gearing applied, but most importantly TWIN Motor decks will give you a lot more grip, especially when riding off road in loose dirt or up steep hills! TWIN Motor Decks give you more than double the grip & you will accelerate considerably faster than single motor board.
