Blending the attributes of an ATV, a jet ski, a tank and a skateboard is no easy task, but that is just the diverse kind of capability that the BPG Werks DTV Shredder is offering to the powersports market.

The Shredder is powered by a 196cc, two-stroke gasoline engine, which is connected to a dual-CVT drive. A total of 13 horsepower offer riders a top speed of 30 miles per hour, which probably seems plenty fast on an upright rig like this one. Riders stand on a pivoting, spiked deck that turns by way of leaning, just like a skateboard, while the upright handle offers throttle and brake, and a place to hang on. And, of course, ownership of the vehicle grants one admin status on all Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan boards.

We could go on, but the Translogic crew does a first-rate job of explaining what the Shredder is, as well as getting the low down about the project from BPG Werks CEO Ben Gulak. Watch it all, below.

      30 mph huh.....funny, but I could have blown by this thing easily on my ten year old mountain bike based on the video footage. Fail.

      This is an awesome beast, the vision of an amazing young man. And if you like this, then his "Uno-Cycle" will truly blow your mind. The fact that the US Military is the very 1st purchaser of these shredders speaks to their use and durability. Not toys, these things and Ben's future inventions are bound to revolutionize personal transport. BTW, he's a student (While being a CEO) at both Harvard & MIT. The guy's a certifiable genius visionary.

        Seeing that you're a colleague of his... your opinion translates as SPAM, and not exactly trustworthy. Speaking as someone who has no connection to this, I don't see this product being a hit with consumers.

        Dude, the US military is his first customer. And the rest of the world is way interested. He's got distributors in maybe 20 countries at this point.

      For anyone saying it doesn't look that fast, I guarantee you it is PLENTY fast when you are riding it. 30 MPH doesn't seem very fast in a car, but if you've ever done 30 MPH on a bike, much less a skateboard, you know it seems a hell of a lot faster.

      Cool, but they've got to do something about the $4K price tag...
