Snow Go is a lightweight electric alternative to the snowmobile. It was aimed at developing communities where short journeys don't require a full sized snowmobile.
Design for adjustable Manufacture
The manufacture of Snow Go was performed by ourselves, everything on the rear frame was made to be adjustable. This allowed us to tailor the belt tension, chain tension and belt to ground contact length.
A high powered electric motor was used for Snow Go, it gave enough torque to start Snow Go from a standing start and could move at 25km/h on the flat.
Final testing was performed on the snow at Hemel Hempstead snow dome, and initial testing was performed on sand in Hyde Park. The sandy surface allowed us to quickly test prototypes whilst refining the final design.
