Raider Rig FAQs 

Q: Can the rig climb mountains? 

Weight is a big factor when talking about hill climbing. Realistically, don't think of The Rig as a Mountain Climber, think of it more as a back road adventurer. Climbing a 15% incline with 225lbs can start to overheat the motor in about 10 minutes. BUT on gentle slopes or flat ground the rig can roll around all day long

Q: How hard is it to drive the rig? 

The Rig does have manual steering and manual brakes. It does require upper body strength and hand strength to maneuver. Just about as much strength as it takes to operate a normal pedal bike. Also, coordinating the throttle, brakes, and steering does require full cognitive and decision making ability. Watch this short video for more detail: 

Q: Can I ride in the rain, or in puddles? 

No. There is no water protection inside the electronics. The motor, and motor controller (Little silver box) need to stay 100% dry. 

Q: How much does the rig weigh? 

A Rig with 2 batteries and full suspension weighs 130lbs. (59kg) 

A Rig with 1 battery and full suspension weighs 120lbs. (54kg)

Q: Can I drive The Rig with one arm? 

The safe answer is No. Our rig has manual steering that requires the use of both arms. And more importantly, The Rig has manual brakes. Without the access to both front and rear brakes, the bike would be unsafe to drive. It is not recommended to operate with just one arm or one hand. 

Q: How do you travel with The Rig? 

The easiest and best way to travel with the Rig is if you have a truck, and can load it into the truck bed. Another good option is a trailer, or a basket carrier hitch attachment. 
The Rig does not break down any smaller so it will not fit into smaller vehicles. The handlebars and back of the seat can fold down to be able to load into the back of SUVs and larger vehicles.
