A Ski video by redlinefilms - 517 views



In this behind the scenes episode our rider Petja tells about our electric winch. An idea to build electric winch came from Petja and he sent an email to ABB. Things worked and ABB sent us ACS355 frequency converter and an electric motor. Few months later the winch was ready to streets. It's pretty much the same they use for wakeboarding but we use it for skiing. Big thanks to ABB and Lauri Luoma!

Some specs:
~100m of rope
top speed +70 kmh
three-phase current
4kW electric motor
using it with 6kW generator
