How Fast Does a 21HP Jet Powered Snowboard Go?
With winter well underway, he’s successfully implemented the EDFs onto a snowboard, for high speed fun in the powder. Capable of speeds of over 40km/h, it can even go up slight inclines, though gathering momentum first certainly helps.
After producing the first build video, a local Ski Resort (Glenn Eden) actually invited the team to their slope and closed off a run to test out the snowboard. It worked exactly as expected. Ridiculously difficult to control, balance, and steer – but the test pilots managed to get some good footage of the jet powered snowboard in action.
