Urban Shredder by Hot Wheels


The Urban Shredder—possibly the unholy offspring of a motorcycle and skateboard—looks like a cycle shop custom creation designed for only the most extreme/insane riders. But it’s actually a ridable Hot Wheels toy, and could be one of the most popular/most expensive/most dangerous toys this Christmas.

Workings of a brushed electric motor with a two-pole rotor and permanent-magnet stator. (“N” and “S” designate polarities on the inside faces of the magnets; the outside faces have opposite polarities.)

Powered by a 250-watt electric motor running on a pair of 12-volt DC batteries, the Urban Shredder can hit a top speed of 10 miles per hour and can run for up to an hour on a single charge. The young rider pilots the vehicle in a low-to-the-ground kneeling position, so adequate protection is a must. But at $500 when it’s available in early December, how many parents are going to spend even more money on helmets and pads? So while the Urban Shredder is charging on Christmas morning, your kid can pass the time in the waiting room of your local emergency clinic.

    You have very nice blog here. Only one thing what I noticed, it was very hard to find it from google (at least with my search term). You should use plugin like that: It will get you better ranking in google. I use it all my wp blogs.If you have any problems to use it, just send me email and I try to help.
