After years of being meticulously engineered at the Skunk Werks, and
raved about as the C.I.D.L.I., Patmont Motor Werks, the innovators of
present day motorized scooters and creators of the Go-Ped® Brand,
has just announced the release of their new pure off-road scooter, the
Go-Ped® Trail Ripper 46.
No longer are paved surfaces important for Go-Ped® use.
This amazing stand-on scooter weighing only 46 pounds puts its 4 HP
to the ground through a simple, unique and tunable patent pending suspension
Dubbed C.I.D.L.I. for Cantilevered Independent Dynamic Linkless Indispension,
this unique front and rear swing arm system is indispensable to this practical
and fun light weight off-road machine.
Previously other off-brand scooters have been introduced with traditional
shocks. However, weight, complexity, reliability, short 1-3” travel
and rider standing room problems have prevented these types of vehicles
from reaching true off-road success.
The Go-Ped® Trail Ripper 46 now breaks this paradigm and follows
traditional dirt bike suspension travel specifications of “half
the wheel diameter”. The front and rear tires are 4 X 11 inch
knobbies , and the C.I.D.L.I. suspension travel approaches an unprecedented
6 inches on each end.
Other very interesting and important benefits have been realized by
this simple and efficient design:
- Both swing arms are “cantilevered” 4130 Chromoly steel
tubing and the wheel rims are made of ultra light Magnesium . This produces
very low unsuspended weight, and allows the wheels to stay in better
contact with uneven ground. The result is excellent trail riding and
handling characteristics. This design also greatly simplifies any maintenance
- To accommodate various rider skills, weights, and preferences, the
suspension can be tuned from “plush” to “firm”
through its elastomer compression adjusters . These adjusters raise
and lower its natural damping characteristics as well.
- The C.I.D.L.I. suspension system geometry produces very effective
“anti-dive” characteristics under braking from its powerful
and race proven “Mad Dog” twin stainless steel wave rotor
For power, PMW is introducing a new 4 port, 4 HP, high
compression, high RPM 41.5cc 2 stroke engine . This purpose designed engine
becomes PMW's top of the line performer of its production gas powered
scooter line-up. Power delivery is through a single reduction pocket bike
style chain system with 78mm automatic centrifugal clutch . Though the
aftermarket selection is already great, the stock sprocket ratio was chosen
to deliver the best bottom end for this combination. This produces absolutely
the highest fun factor in trail riding for this scooter.
Chain adjustment uses PMW's patent pending adjustable motor mount system
found on many of its other very successful and race proven products.
Its Chromoly single tube frame, reinforced aircraft grade 6061-T6 folding
handlebar system with Tim Patmont bend bars (like on the TSi) contribute
to making the Go-Ped® Trail Ripper 46 a very light weight device.
Combined with its truly revolutionary C.I.D.L.I. suspension, it is not
only very practical but creates a new way to have a high level of safe
off road low cost FUN.
