TIMBERSLED E-6 ELECTRIC MOUNTAIN VEHICLE

 

The Timbersled E-6 is a cross between a snow bike (a dirt bike with a track conversion kit) and a snowmobile. After dissecting the current market and designs, I found an opportunity to create something completely new that combined the most cherished and useful features into one vehicle. Of the many features that this project includes, the most progressive and most noticeable feature is the adjustable track length. This feature allows the vehicle to adapt to the environment around it. The short track length can be utilized during storage, transportation and on the trails, while the long track allows for it to maneuver over steep grades and through deep snow.
