By altering the number of layers of material that we add into the mould, we are are able to tune the final performance of the TRAMPA decks relevant to the riders weight height & ability. Please use the FLEXOMETER above as a guide to help you choose the right ply board for you. TRAMPA's FLEXOMETER information is to be interpreted as a 'GUIDE ONLY' as there is no fixed rule as to which is the exact right deck for you. The weight, height & ability of the rider will all help determine which is the right sort of deck for you, but of course the most important factor is personal preference as to how the rider wants their deck to feel.... Some riders like it flexi, some like it firm, some like it very very stiff.... It depends on what you are doing on your board, i.e. freestyle, freeride, boarder-cross, altho there is guidance there is no right & no wrong just personal preference but when purchasing a deck from TRAMPA we want to make sure you get it exactly the way you want it! so if your stuck as to which one is the best for you them please drop as a line...
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 MOUNTAINBOARD DRIVE TRAIN (MBDT) is the first commercially available fully sealed off drive train system that has been specifically created to give the maximum ride experience in all aspects of E-Mountain boarding. With loads of useful features packed into our premium design TRAMPA has created something very special for the Mountainboarders - Carbon Fiber Motor Mounts & Motor Protection frame - 6061 T6 Aircraft grade alloy parts - Marine Grade Stainless Steel nuts, bolts washers & spacers - Heavy Industry & German made High Power 15mm wide Premium Strongbelts. - Flat Headed Ball ended M8 Grub Screws allows for Perfect drive alignment in assembly - Single screw Belt Tensioning Systems with built in Idle Pulley forcing belt & teeth to interlock perfectly with small motor pulley to gain maximum grip on teeth bringing immediate power to the wheels - VESC 6 included - Gearing transmission range from 1:4,4 to 1:5,1 (Check out the Gearing data in the TAB above) - Motor shaft Axle support bearing in T6 6061 Alloy housing - Frame to fit a 'Motor Dust Cover' (eg. filter cloth or thin foam) - Simple wheel disassembly, (both pulleys stay in position after wheel disassembly) - Fits 7 & 8 inch SUPERSTAR & HYPA Wheels - customizable design for advanced DIY projects. - Inter-connectable with non TRAMPA motors (44mm mounting hole diameter). The MDT is best combined with our brand new 6364 TRAMPA premium motors, available with 118kv & 136kv @ 1Nm.se The unique shapes of the TRAMPA 35° HOLYPRO deck & the 35° HS11 deck, allows any previous TRAMPA customer who owns one of these models, to be able to purchase the MDT kit & connect it directly to their existing TRAMPA Trucks without having to make any modifications what so ever! They can purchase & fit the MDT kit they need to convert their existing board as an after market purchase :-)
TRAMPA BOARDS Ltd produce the finest Mountainboard & Kiteboard Decks & Components on the market today. Uniquely, TRAMPA™ tailors the flex of their Decks specific to the riders weight, height & riding ability and then custom constructs the components by hand to order to give you the customer a totally bespoke board, made specially just for you!
TRAMPA Boards only produce premium quality performance enhancing sporting equipment, created to increase your off road riding experience. TRAMPA™ decks can be custom made as Stiff or as Flexi as the rider demands. TRAMPA BOARDS can be retro fitted to your existing wooden setup if required.
The stiffness of a TRAMPA™ deck is measured in "Ply". Ply refers to how many layers of the secret formula material are used to make the TRAMPA™ deck. The more ply added the stiffer & heavier the deck will be. Our ply or stiffness ratings range from 11 - 15 in the Short decks & 15 - 17 in the Long. There is a perfect TRAMPA™ deck for everyone!
TRAMPA™ decks are universally fitting & a Blank TRAMPA™ deck can be drilled to fit all Truck or Binding systems known. This makes the TRAMPA™ decks the perfect option when choosing an upgrade for your existing non responsive wooden deck or broken laminate setups. Even when used outside of their intended use TRAMPA™ decks have proven to be totally indestructible beyond expectation! One chap wrote in to tell us that whilst loading his car his board rolled down the hill, under both wheels of a bus,... Yeah of course the skate trucks were bent badly & 1 wheel was damaged beyond repair but the deck was completely fine with just a couple of scratcheds on it! In 14 Years of excessive testing, regardless of all excuses including excessive the riders weight, low deck ply or level of severity regarding an impact, nobody has ever broken a TRAMPA deck!
A TRAMPA™ deck weighs relative to the length, width & ply of the deck. (ply = number of layers of magic material used to make the deck which results in a stiffness rating) Smaller/lighter riders benefit from shorter and lighter low ply decks such as the 12ply 15° short which works perfectly with the lightweight Skate Trucks, where as heavier riders need longer, stiffer & generally more robust equipment such as the 17ply 35°long with spring trucks. Therefore Trampa Boards Ltd produce the lightest decks on the market and also some of the heaviest, it depends on the weight and rider style of the rider... one thing is for sure you'll always get the same perfect performance & you’ll never break your TRAMPA deck regardless of how much you weigh or which one you buy....
Generally speaking, average adult sized kiteboard riders (65-85kg), tend to prefer shorter, flexi decks, (12/13/14/15 ply 15° shaped decks), where as Mountainboard riders tend to go for Longer stiffer decks, 15/16/17ply 35° long. The 35° short deck is perfect deck for mid sized mountain boarders looking to freestyle or kite boarders looking for a more stable version of the 15° Skate Truck Deck. Please see individual flexometer for kiteboard & mountainboard deck suggestions and ensure the information for you is interpreted correctly. All the flexometer ratings are to be used as a guide and not specific as the information is to be interpreted according the rider criteria as everybody has a different demands and opinion as to which deck will be the exact model for them.
If you wish to upgrade your existing deck setup, you can purchase just a BLANK DECK & have it prepared at the factory to fit your existing equipment. The Blank Deck can be pre-drilled for your truck system & your bindings exactly to your requirements! To help make sure you purchase the correct PLY deck, please fill in the "Which deck for me questionnaire" when ordering & we will ensure you are ordering the correct flex deck for you. If we feel it is the wrong deck we will contact you before sending out to you.
TRAMPA's 35° HOLYPRO ELECTRIC MOUNTAINBOARD DECK has been specifically created to perfectly fit TRAMPA's new & stunning range of Electrical products & Motor Mounts.
Having been Asymmetric re-shaped the special factory made OVAL HOLYPRO HOLES that the board is so famous for have been re-positioned, gaining space in the center of the deck so that the amazingly flexible, whilst still un-breakable deck, can accommodate 2 NEW & VERY SPECIAL features, COMPLETELY UNIQUE to TRAMPA.
These changes allow the perfect fitting of the top quality super flexible Silicone cables that carry the battery power from the TRAMPA recommended 'Center of the Deck, Surface Mounted MONSTER Box', out though sealed off exit holes in the underside of the Monster Box into a special 'Sealed Off CNC precision cut Channel' that cuts through the center of the deck, running under the riders trailing foot, into & through a special 'Flow hole' in the tail of the deck to allow the cables to flow through the crease of the deck & be fed around the Trucks in a tidy non interfering route with either the Trucks or when riding in anyway but so that the bullet connecters align perfectly with & connect neatly into the motor.
The CNC Channel in the center of the deck has a 2mm shelf running around the perimeter of the channel to fit the lid which can at the point of assembly be glued & screwed to keep your cables completely protected, away from interference & the elements & to impress on-lookers who need to know how the power is delivered from the box to the motors!
Supplied with An Aluminium Bash Guard to help protect and waterproof your connections, a CNC Channel cover and 6x screws for securing.
Compatible with ANY of the spring trucks in the TRAMPA range, and can be drilled for regular, goofy, or (both) binding orientations, the TRAMPA 35° HOLYPRO ELECTRIC MOUNTAINBOARD DECK is extremely modifiable - if you wish to take a drill or buzzsaw to your deck, we're confident it'll hold up to what you throw at it (within reason!).
TRAMPA decks are considered the strongest, poppiest, most Customisable Decks on the market. Their performance is un-matched by any other brand! You will 'Pop' higher & have a more 'Cushioned landing' all thanks to the incredible performance of the TRAMPA deck! Once cooked our impenetrable composite weave is so strong whilst still so flexible, that the magic material will not split, delaminate or break in anyway shape or form, regardless of which deck / ply you choose, or the environment that you use it in, because all TRAMPA decks are sold as UN-BREAKABLE & to prove this we offer you a lifetime guarantee!
The 6 Spoke HYPA Wheel is the lightest & strongest plastic injected 7 & 8 inch Hub / Wheel on the market today! Its produced using original DuPont ingredients & the best Injection Moulding machinery, no quality expense is spared during the production of this amazingly strong little hub!
During testing the HYPA Wheels performance surpassed all expectations. :-) This little 8 inch wheel proved to be so strong, when the "Crash Test Dummies" (i mean the Mountainboard Team Riders) inflated their tyres well beyond factory recommendations! (Tut-Tut Naughty-Naughty!) The extra inflation resulted in substantially faster roll speeds, giving them the extra time in the air to complete their huge freestyle moves & still have time land in 1 piece! I'm pleased to tell you there were no explosions from the over inflation to report whilst breaking a HYPA HUB is just about unheard of, something extraordinary has to go wrong before these hubs do! If you have seen some of the crazy stuff the MTB & KTB teams have put the equipment through over the years, with genuinely almost no problems to report, you will have no doubt of the HYPA WHEELS performance capabilities.
HYPA Hubs are available in loads of coordinating colour combinations its difficult to make the decision as to which option you like the most! You can choose from naked Matt Black or White to Painted Gloss Red or Gloss Blue with Painted Black or White TRAMPA Logo's or Printed in Winter or Army Camo, the choice is all yours... :-)
TRAMPA's HYPA hubs are held together using Marine Grade (A4) Stainless steel Nuts & Bolts & will never rust on you. Our bolts are perfect for bad conditions. Not only will the nuts & Bolts never rust on you all the Bolts used by TRAMPA have been dipped in a special Blue Locking Paste, whilst all the Nuts that TRAMPA uses are fitted with the world renowned Nyloc nylon nut locking system, all of these no expense spared small details ensure you get the absolute best product possible! To help prevent you from purchasing imitations, TRAMPA's HYPA Hubs are always TRAMPA embossed between the spokes proving our top quality!
Your tyre requirements will be defined by the surface you are riding on, however you will be pleased to read that all of the HYPA Hubs will fit into any of the 7 inch Tyres or 8 Inch Tyres on the TRAMPA website. TRAMPA Hubs are also compatible with all known 8 Inch Tyres that are currently on the market, including any other Mountainboard or Dirt Scooter brand.
TRAMPA’s very own & genuine ABEC 5 rated Bearings, push perfectly into the 'Centre Set' bearing housings either side of the hub. The bearings are supported internally by use of a 'Bearing Support Spacer' sitting on the axle in the middle of the hub, guaranteeing the position of the bearings & the smoothest spin rate possible. TRAMPA's Bearings will fit onto 9.525mm, 10mm & 12mm Axles. The metric measurement of 9.525mm, is equal to the US Imperial measurement 3/8ths of 1 inch. Bearing Reducer Sleeves downsize your 12mm Bearings to fit onto 10mm Metric Scooter Axles or 9.525mm (3/8ths of an inch) Imperial Skate Axles. Bearings can be supplied at 50% of the usual retail price when purchased with a wheel... 2x Bearings cost just £2.50 per pair (usually £2.50 each), resulting in a £10 saving per set of 8x bearings, 8 bearings are enough for a set of 4 wheels!
TRAMPA's 200mm x 50mm - 8 Inch wonder wheels are the primary choice sized wheel for many inventors developing sporting equipment requiring very strong whilst very light weight, small pneumatic wheels for their applications to work correctly. Mountainboards, Kiteboards, 2Wheel, Dirt-Scooters, Bikes Skates, Sledges, Trikes, Skikes, Model Planes, Single Seater Planes, Dog Sledding, Dirt Skiing, Transportation Chariots & now lots of exciting electronic applications all due to come to the market very soon, all require an 8 inch wheel for their best movement... If you have a wheeled project on the go & you would like to fit TRAMPA's 8 inch wheels onto it, then in your design you need to use a 12mm axle & you will need to give an axle mounting space of 34.2mm in order to fit the TRAMPA Hubs correctly.
TRAMPA's RATCHET BINDINGS are the number 1 choice of Bindings for Mountain Boarding. The Ratchet Buckle mechanism allows the rider to lever the bindings very tight, much tighter than what is normally achievable compared to other styles, e.g. Velcro Bindings, treating the rider to a locked in & fully connected to the board sensation. TRAMPA Bindings wrap snugly over the top of your foot but firm footwear is advisable.... The EVA Foam Padding is 'Ribbed' & 'TRAMPA Embossed' on the underside of the Footstrap. These fine details helps maintain the foot locked into the Bindings whilst riding over rough terrain.
A Special Hook on the Base of the Ratchet Buckle locates into a special slot on the top of the Footstrap. This clever 3 point connection prevents any movement in the connection of the Straps allowing the rider the confidence in their equipment to concentrate purely on their riding. Although the Ladder strap will ultimately wear over time, it has been re-enforced on both sides at its base, guaranteeing performance when riding.
Stainless steel Dome Headed Bolts connect through the Footstrap into L-Brackets ensuring no discomfort to the foot. The L-Brackets are 'multi positional' allowing the rider the exact foot-stance they require. TRAMPA Bindings are supplied with a Marine grade A4 Stainless Steel deck fixing kit included. Ratchet style bindings are the serious Mountain Board rider’s primary choice binding! Ratchet Style bindings work at their absolute optimum when combined with TRAMPA Heel Straps.
TRAMPA's MONSTER BATTERY BOX is amazing! It could quite literally change your life! Surface mounted between the riders feet the MONSTER Box is often thought of as being a little bit ugly, but real beauty is not skin deep & its whats inside that matters...
the MONSTER Box is surface mounted to give maximum ground clearance when riding off road (of which the majority of the TRAMPA Products are designed to be ridden off road & when you ar riding off road you do need extra clearance or you will get snagged up rocks & constantly bashing on anything that protrudes from the ground), plus mounting the box on the surface in the way that we do with Rubber bushings, retains 95% of the full flex of the deck that the TRAMPA decks are so much famed for, the TRAMPA name was derived from the name Trampoline as the they both have amazing flexible properties, securing a large frame underneath your ride removes all the flex, fun & performance you get from a TRAMPA Deck.
The Monster Box is large enough to internally fit 2x VESC's & 2x 22,000 mAh Lipo cells or up to 12s9p 18650 cells which is an amazing power pack to have that's designed to give you nothing but MAX POWER!!
Designed to work in conjunction with the TRAMPA Electric Mountainboard Deck, the Motor cables from the VESC are forced through rubber cable entry points out the bottom of the Monster box & directly into the CNC precision cut channel that's wide enough to run 6 high quality motor cables through the center of the deck, all the way to the motors, a PCB board running the balance cables is screwed over the motor cables securing them, then covered with Grip tape (nobody would know they were there) giving a real tidy job leaving others wondering how the power gets from the box to the motors :-)
Made from 2mm & 4mm thick 3k Twill Carbon Fiber panels the Monster box has been CNC machined with a 2.1mm groove to allow the precision cut side panels to slot in & interconnect perfectly, giving a very tight & Strong connection to the box. The box is held together with Aluminum Hex Spacers that are Glued & Screwed through the base of the box with countersunk Bolts. More longer countersunk bolts are then used to screw the lid down onto the box sidewalls giving an incredibly neat tight strong finish to the assembly.
Fitted to the top of the Monster Box is the LCD Battery display housing that is made from Glass Fiber. The LCD Display pushes straight into the housing, inside this
Using M6 Countersunk Bolts for neatness & rubber bushings to give a fraction of stability the MONSTER BOX secures directly to the Centre of the deck. Premium Quality Rubber membranes are fitted into oval shaped cut-outs which are located all around the box, the Rubber membranes allow you to be able to pull your balancing cables through etc making the MONSTER BOX pretty much as close to Water proof, whilst as easy & convenient to wire up as you can possibly get...! The Monster Box also GENIUS!
TRAMPA's amazingly sturdy whilst incredibly lightweight 12s MONSTER Box will easily fit 4x 6s Zippy compact batteries which when harnessed together correctly makes TWIN 12s MONSTER!! The MONSTER box comes with a top mounted LCD Battery Indicator, so guessing range is no longer an issue!! (for a guide to set this up for your batteries click here)
2x (2x 6s 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 12s9P, 11s10P or 10s11P - OMG so many options AMAZING!!!
We have crested some special BATTERY Pages on the RIDE GUIDE where we are encouraging battery makers from all the corners of the globe who wish to be part of the TRAMPA community to offer their wares & services 100% completely free of charge (If you area battery maker & would like to appear on the TRAMPA Ride Guide for batteries then there is a link on the Ride Guide page explaining how to send in all the info that we need in order for you to show) so that we can connect them with you or you with them, so that you go to somebody reputable, somebody who knows wat they are doing so you get the best product & service for your money
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.
You will also need a few bits & bobs when it comes to assembling the MONSTER BOX. The Monster Box slots & screws together like Mechano dream, but mostly its a very exciting time anticipating the sensation of all the power you are about to unleash, its not called the MONSTER BOX for no reason ya know!! lol! Stainless steel Countersunk bolts connect into both the Base & the Lid of the box, screwing neatly & tightly into threaded HEX spacers... As the lid is tightened down, you get a satisfying click as the panels lock together, giving you the confidence that everything has dropped into place perfectly as the panels slips into the groove & the gaps are no longer viable! Awesome bit of kit!
When installing your chosen batteries into your MONSTER BOX, it’s a good idea to secure them to the inside with velcro, and then pad the area around the batteries with foam. This reduces any ride-ruining-rattling sounds & keeps the batteries safe from bouncing around when riding over rough terrain.
Battery Box Width - 205m
Battery Box Length - 190mm
Box Height - 74mm
Introducing the amazing VESC® SIX PLUS Speed Controller :-)
The VESC® 6 PLUS is the successor of the world famous VESC 6. When we developed the VESC 75/300, we knew that most of its features would be handy to have in a VESC 6 format. In consequence Benjamin Vedder took the challenge and re-designed the entire PCB of the VESC 6 to make the new powerful features available in a smaller and cheaper 60V rated package. The SIX PLUS features THREE PHASE SHUNTS & adjustable CURRENT + VOLTAGE FILTERS allowing any motor attached to be detected more precisely and reliably than ever before. In consequence all kinds of motors now run smooth as silk on a shoeshine and react PERFECTLY LINEAR to throttle input commands. In addition to these massive improvements you will find a IMU chip fitted , featuring a gyroscope, accelerometers and a compass, allowing the VESC to know its 3D orientation in space, 3 axis acceleration values and directions. UAVCAN has been added to the VESC 6 PLUS firmware allowing to interact with commonly used flight controllers like the PIXHAWK ®* devices. Incredible 12,000 lines of code have been added for the new hardware releases.
To make the VESC nearly indestructible, the low voltage rails were redesigned A-Z. Last but not least, the VESC 6 Plus & VESC 75/300 made Mr. Vedder putting tons of effort into a new VESC-Tool software and firmware.
VESC-Tool is now available as a mobile Android™* compatible App, allowing to configure your VESC or VESC array with a few clicks only. User specific PROFILES will let you change in between different setups with a single click and on the fly, while the motor is spinning. Using a original VESC 6 PLUS, motor detection is now more precise than ever before and pretty much a guarantee, even for very beastly motors that were troublesome to detect in the past. Extreme low inductance (0.5 μH) motors are no issue! Parameters for gearing and wheel diameter have been added, allowing display of speed, Wh usage per distance traveled, precise computation of estimated range, precise battery indicator, current consumption, duty cycle and power. Beautiful self adjusting analog displays make the readings of all parameters very enjoyable.
What makes the original VESC hardware so special?
The original hardware is perfectly matched to work seamless withe VESC-Tool software code. Both, hardware and software, have been designed by the same engineer, knowing all critical detail.
TRAMPA BOARDS LTD has teamed up with the internationally renowned 'YODA of electronics' (Benjamin Vedder) to bring to the world the most advance electronic speed controllers ever to be produced! Benjamin's family name is Vedder & the V in the name VESC represents this. VESC = VEDDERs Electronic Speed Controller! There have been many ESC's before, but now the VESC line of products officially exists, made to work seamless with the latest software developments. Benjamin is globally renowned for his incredible electronics and software skills. He has worked tirelessly for well over 7 years fine tuning preceding versions of the globally famous & Trade Marked VESC products & after teaming up with TRAMPA BOARDS Ltd the development of the VESC product line has taken him to his highest capability yet.
The TRAMPA VESCs comes fitted as standard with TRAMPA's very own & very special Silicone Coated & TRAMPA logo'd cables which are made up of 1036 Strands of Highly Flexible Top quality German copper. These quality details ensure the maximum performance at all times. Attached To the premium copper cables are genuine Amass XT90s connectors one side & 4mm Gold Plated Bullet connectors the other. The V6 Plus is installed with a custom moulded Internal Silicone Seal & is neatly fitted into the Heat sink which is a Solid Block of CNC'd 6061T6 Aluminum, used for dispensing the heat and offering maximum protection, allowing easy fitting and maximum good looks!..
The VESC line of produces are the most powerful & impressive Electric Speed Controller Benjamin has ever envisioned! They are arguably by far the best and most versatile Electronic Speed Controllers the world has ever seen!! E Boarding, E-Biking, Remote control of all kinds including Drones & Robotics and Camera equipment (as well as thousands of industrial & recreational applications) are all about to be revolutionized by using the VESC series of products that will all come to the market soon...
Using the a VESC in your TRAMPA BOARD setup (Regardless of which model) will allow you to add any battery up to 12s with 60V of peak voltage. This is the perfect limit to give you incredible performance from your electric TRAMPA motors or similar. Using the new VESC TOOL, you will be able to fine tune your performances relevant to your application, where you will be able to calculate your top end speeds & approx distance to travel using different combinations of power & gearing settings. Beautiful!
VESCs comes to you ready to plug in & go! They are delivered to you in a very stylish precision cut 6061 T6 aluminum heat-sink housing which has the TRAMPA & VESC logo beautifully laser etched to its surface & for further splash proofing we have invested into another mould for additional exterior Silicone Sealing which is available as an accessory to purchase.
The performance of the TRAMPA VESCs, compared to preceding third party models, is light years ahead! This is demonstrated in the cost as cheap non effective clones are sold according to their price not their quality. If you want the best performance then stick to the original hardware source - it will save you a lot of money on the long run and is a guarantee for ultimate performance and max compatibility with future software releases.
Our VESCs are being configured with the brand new Open Source, GPL V3 licensed VESC®-Tool Software: www.vesc-project.com and on the Google Play Store™*.
The Open source, GPL V3 licensed VESC Firmware will come pre-installed on the device, allowing us to do extra testing of the device, prior to shipping.

This Single Motor MONSTER BOX complete Cable kit is used to take the power from the MONSTER Box into the motor of a single Motor Electric Mountainboard. It is used to link 4x 6s 6200 Zippy compact cells packed to make 12s2p Power giving you loads of range :-) Thats enough power for a ride well over 20 miles in range!
The Batteries a fitted with female XT90 connectors, whislt the cables pass trough a 50Amp safety fuse to prevent all possible accidents into a single TRAMPA VESC to power a single motor TRAMPA Mountainboard giving you the amazing 12s power with massive rage that everybody is talking about... :-)
The finely stranded (1036 strands per 4mm core) & highest standard available copper cables (made in Germany) flex perfectly in their top quality & super flexible silicone coating to enable you to connect everything together neatly within the contents of the carbon fibre Beast Box, remember the VESC is mounted internally in the Beast Box and I can tell you it can be a bit of a squeeze fitting everything into the Beast, but having superflexible high quality cables to work with means everything can be easily moved around inside the box slipping them into the perfect position without the fear of damaging the cables or the hand soldered in the UK connections to the XT90 plugs...
The XT90 plugs have a little ridge on their exterior whilst the material they are made from is very strong and very cleverly we have made the Beast box lid with 2 precision made holes perfect for accepting for the XT90's to push through the lid from the inside of the box & rest against the rim of the hole in the lid, allowing everything else in the box to seal away enabling you to be able to, with the use of some squeeze silicone in a tube to become pretty much weather proof...
By the use of some suitably small 2mm holes next to the precision holes for the XT90 connectors it's possible in combination to neatly zip tie between the XT90's to lock them firmly in position giving them a strong enough connection so that so that you can easily push & pull the loopkey / cuicuit breaker at any time from the exterior with out the fear of damaging anything inside or out...!
Constructed using 4mm thick of the highest standard Copper available (that's lots of Super fine copper Strands - 1036 strands per 4mm core) and coated in Super Flexible Premium Silicone which has been TRAMPA Stamped to prove it's geniality & expected quality (Cus these top quality cables are not cheap) are used to maximise & maintain full performance in your Electric TRAMPA Board at all times!
This simple motor mounting kit is as versatile as they come - able to work with most Longboard Trucks and wheels - as well as a variety of motor & pulley sizes.
The Motor Mount Connectors snuggly slide over the truck hanger and are secured tightly with MARINE GRADE M6x10 grub screws. The Premium Quality Carbon Mounting Panel is secured to the Motor Mount Connectors - & is fitted with a support for long motor axles. The Motor Axle Support houses a precision 608 bearing, supporting axle rotation & ensuring the motor is as secure & efficient as possible. TRAMPA’s motors have a longer axle, that fit perfectly into this support.
The Pulley Kit includes a 15mm STRONGBELT and a choice of Slave Wheels, that can drastically change the performance of your finished board. We use a 15mm wide reinforced drive belt that reduces stretch, eliminates slip & as a consequence provides a constantly smooth whilst incredibly intuitive power delivery direct to the rear Drive Wheels of your board. This kit comes with a 66 tooth slave wheel, which fits to any of our 7-9 inch wheels!
The Maytech Remote controller is comfortable to hold & works well as a thumb operated remote control when riding a TRAMPA Electric board. Opposed to the more-common trigger controllers, where you use your forefinger to operate a trigger on the underside of the controller, the Maytech controller uses your thumb on the top - meaning you push forwards to fly forwards! It may take some getting used to, but we’ve found the small, tactful & simple design of these remotes are perfect for controlling your speed & keeping you cruising along comfortably.
The Maytech remote control comes with its own rechargeable lithium batteries (already installed and sealed in the device) & a Micro USB cable for charging. Full charging takes approximately 2 hours but one charge is enough for at least 8 hours (Maytech claims 10 hours but we’ve never tested their claim). You should never run out of power in one run, however just to be safe you should always charge the controller when you charge your board - you never want a dead controller halfway through a ride, that's a school boy error!
The Controller is already paired to the receiver, which means all you have to do is push it into the VESC & within a moment (so long as everything has power in it) you should have a automatic connection - Easy!
The HobbyKing® ™ GT2B is a tad more substantial in size, but comes with a few more features, as well as some customisable options. Featuring a 3 channel operation, interchangeable hand grips, adjustable steering dual-rate, servo reversing and a rechargeable li-ion battery. The li-ion battery makes this transmitter much lighter, which gives the user a great feel during use - no more lugging around a heavy transmitter holding (expensive!) AA batteries!
The Quanum pistol grip transmitter & receiver system is an entry level system offering the reliability of 2.4Ghz signal technology and will control the speed of your Electric TRAMPA Board. The transmitter is powered by 4 x AAA type batteries & is extremely compact & lightweight. The transmitter has some unique features, such as the magazine style battery tray, which pops out at the push of a button allowing you to change your batteries quick & easy. The Trigger Throttle control is comfortable in your hand and easy to control whilst riding your board. The Quanum Tx & Rx package is simple to use and is suitable for all TRAMPA setups.
This GRAUPNER ULTRAMAT Charger is capable of Charging & Balancing all cells up to 12s in power. The Ultramat 18 charger is used by the TRAMPA team for charging all of our decks that use Zippy Cells for power. The charger comes with a UK or EURO Plug for wall plug in connection, XT90 Jack leads & 2x 7 pin adaptor plates which allow balancer cable connections from 2x batteries from 1s to 6s using JST Connectors.... As the Graupner is our suggested charger for the Zippy cells this charger is somehow incorporated into the design of our Battery Boxes so using this charger is nice easy to connect, it is reasonably fast to charge whilst it balances (looking after) your cells at the same time and you dont need to remove anything in order to charge as the cells are all snugly secured away in one of the amazing Carbon fiber boxes, which as it so happens have been designed special for this style of charger & easy charging... :-)
12s power is the perfect amount of power to be pushed through any of the TRAMPA Electronic products (12s should only be applied when using the very special TRAMPA VESC6 speed controller). When 12s power is pumped into the VESC6 you will be able to experience the kind of riding performance everybody is talking about. Do not push more power than 12s into the VESC6. Using a XT90 Battery harness cable kit to connect 2x 6s batteries together will double the battery power resulting with a 12s Battery WITHOUT Any soldering or Welding!!
So as you now know, to achieve 12s power requires a minimum of 2x 6s Batteries (it could be more cells if you were custom making your battery or if you were achieving 12s from 6x 2s, 4x 3s or 3x 4s cells as they can all be harnessed together to make 12s power... but then you will most likely need an additional balancer cable harness or more chargers to charge/balance each cell individually if you want speedy charging), so for efficiency & simplicity we base our 12s power on the use of 2x 6s cells as generally speaking there are many good priced nice performing chargers put there which also have the ability to balance your cells to prevent failiure of the cell, already on the market are capable of charging up to 2x 6 cells at any 1 time,
which maximizes efficiency which in turn means less chargers & (of course if you are making a custom battery you will need a BMS complicated system & Soldering skills) so you either need 2x 6s Battery chargers or 1x charger that is powerful or large enough to charge 2x 6s batteries at the same time to reduce charging times & this GRAUPNER ULTRAMMAT 18 charger is the charger TRAMPA is currently recommending of using capable of charging 2x 6s cells at any 1 time, so if you are running 12s made up from 2x 6s batteries, using this graupner charger you can charge both 6s cells at the same time.... :-)
As well as suggesting our customers find the best performance through using custom cells to make custom battery packs & BMS (Battery management systems), this all gets a little complicated for the majority of our customers, so for ease of supply & speed of installation as plugging in the 6s Cells means no welding or anything messy like that, as well as achieving excellent performance & fabulous range, TRAMPA is strongly encouraging the use of the ZIPPY Compact 6200mAh 6s 40c Lipo Pack with XT90 connectors in on any of the Boards in TRAMPAs range that use either the 12s BEAST BOX or 12s2p MONSTER BOX, as these high power 6s Cells not ony fit perfectly into these custom made Carbon Fiber boxes, but the lids & sides of the Boxes have been CNC'd allowing the wiring loom to flow beautifully inside, further enabling the battery balancer cables to poke out of the rear or sides of the box, whislt most importantly allowing the Charging XT90 connectors to push tightly into & fit perfectly into the precision cut holes in the lid, which are secured int position by the use of s simple ZIPTIE, allowing for simple but very strong KEY connection for turning your board on or off & allowing a really easy plug n play to charge both 6s cells at 1 time when using this Grauper charger
sit perfectly, further allowing Lug holes for the XT90 Connectors to fit into & be secured by a simple ziptie
you should set your charger to LiPo Manual, 6A and max possible mAh setting. Actually the limit of the charger is 20,000mAh I think. That only means the charger will stop charging when it pumped in 20,000 mAh. Worst case, you need to give the charger a second go to finish the job. It simply counts how many mAh it pumped in and stops at your pre-defined value.
When you press the two middle buttons simultaneously, while you charge,you can enter a mode that allows you to see each individual cell.
+- buttons let's you flick through the cells.
Each cell is full when it's at 4.21V.
A test with wheels in the air gives zero information about the performance, since the Vesc is current controlled. This control mode only works when there is a load.
Your Remote has two modes, fast and slow.
When you switch it on, ist in slow mode.
Press the on button again and it will blink fast.
Now you are in fast mode.
Any questions: I'm here for you darling :-)
For an estimate of how long your batteries will take to charge use this Battery Charging Calulator
For example: Compact Zippy 6s 6200mah charged with a graupner (no booster - 2a charge rate) would be 3 hours 45 minutes
After a good days riding your kit is quite likely to be quite dirty & so its important to try to keep your possessions clean when packing down, you can do this by slipping your dirty Board into the oversized & purpose made MUCK OFF BAG.
