DTV Shredder (or Dual Tracked Vehicle) redefines ‘off-road’ by transforming the outdoors into your personal playground. The all-mechanical design, powerful engine and aggressive tank tracks allows for high-speed travel on any terrain, in any season. While the ground-breaking vehicle demands the attention of adrenaline junkies worldwide, it also doubles as a rugged, multi-application workhorse for law enforcement, military, hunting, farming and other industries.
The Shredder’s power comes from a 196 cc, 4-stroke, 13 hp engine that’s capable of speeds of up to 30 mph (48 kph). This might not sound fast compared to, say, a dirt bike, but it’s definitely speedy enough for you to do some serious damage if you fall off – particularly on the rugged terrain for which the vehicle is intended. And since riders stand rather than sit, just trying to stay on should be part of the thrill.
One of the most important aspects of the DTV Shredder is the hardcore-looking molded rubber tank treads it has instead of wheels. According to BPG Werks, the company has been using the same treads on its prototypes for a year, and they’re still in good condition. To keep them spinning, BPG Werks use a dual-CTV differential – which the company patented – to divide the engine’s power equally between the two treads.

“Why the DTV Shredder?” asks inventor Ryan Fairhead, before answering himself. “Jet skiing is fun but I’m limited to water. Snowmobiling is exciting but I’m limited to snow. Dirt biking is one of my passions but I’m limited to solid ground. The DTV Shredder lets you ride on any terrain, all year round.” And as these photographs show, this is a claim that’s been put to the test.
