By altering the number of layers of material that we add into the mould, we are are able to tune the final performance of the TRAMPA decks relevant to the riders weight height & ability. Please use the FLEXOMETER above as a guide to help you choose the right ply board for you. TRAMPA's FLEXOMETER information is to be interpreted as a 'GUIDE ONLY' as there is no fixed rule as to which is the exact right deck for you. The weight, height & ability of the rider will all help determine which is the right sort of deck for you, but of course the most important factor is personal preference as to how the rider wants their deck to feel.... Some riders like it flexi, some like it firm, some like it very very stiff.... It depends on what you are doing on your board, i.e. freestyle, freeride, boarder-cross, altho there is guidance there is no right & no wrong just personal preference but when purchasing a deck from TRAMPA we want to make sure you get it exactly the way you want it! so if your stuck as to which one is the best for you them please drop as a line...
TRAMPA’s famous range of indestructible Decks are unlike anything else on the market. Tailored to a riders' weight, height & ability – TRAMPA DECKS give unrivaled responsiveness & confidence in the board when riding.
Created to replace dull unresponsive wooden decks & reinvent the off-road riding experience, TRAMPA decks bring a whole new riding-experience. With insane ‘pop’ & shock-absorbing flex, TRAMPA decks are the #1 choice for freestyle riding & comfortable cruising.
Made using a secret re-enforced glass and plastic composite (originally developed for light-weight military applications), TRAMPA decks are indestructible. In 17 years of excessive & harsh testing - pushing the decks to their limits (inside & out of intended applications) - there has never been a single break!
TRAMPA decks are measured in “Ply”, referring to how many layers of ‘secret-composite’ are used when making the deck. A lower ply deck will be flexi-er & lighter than a higher-ply one. Generally we recommend higher ply decks for heavier riders, and lower for lighter riders – but flex, pop, and stiffness are all a matter of taste. Our Ply-ratings range from 11 - 18 in various lengths & shapes – meaning there’s a perfect TRAMPA deck for everyone!
TRAMPA decks have 35°, 15° or 0° Truck Mounting Angles, in order to work with the various steering systems used across different applications.
35° Decks – Work in perfect harmony with TRAMPA’s amazing Spring Trucks – a highly tuneable steering system designed give optimal responsiveness at 35°.
15° Decks – Fit to ATB Skate Trucks – a lightweight & cheaper steering system, perfect for lighter riders & kiteboarders.
0° Deck – Our ORRSOM Longboard Deck uses a special split-tip that allows 12FIFTIES Longboard trucks to be mounted at 3 different heights.
How are they made?
The TRAMPA™ deck is made from a re-enforced glass and plastic thermo composite. Chosen because it gives a superior strength-to-weight ratio, whilst (unlike carbon fibre) remaining flexible. It is able to withstand huge impacts, forces and flex's that would shatter other materials.
Specially formulated, and presented in a thread like format, just like cotton. From there, it’s woven to our desired width, and placed it onto a roll. Pre-shaped, polished-aluminium moulds are used to give the material the dimensions and surface quality we require – this is where we vary the layer quantity of the composite in the mould, & control the amount of flex and pop in the resulting deck, giving us our Ply Ratings.
A special seal is used to create a high-pressured vacuum, then mould is then placed in a special oven to cook for about 2 hours. As the air is sucked out, the heated material becomes fluid – then at the crucial moment heating is turned off and the moulds are cooled, resulting in one solid piece! The decks are then cut out using a high-pressure water-cutter, resulting in a razor sharp finish to the edge of the deck.
The decks are then finished by hand. The binding and grab handle fixing holes are measured and drilled by hand, Metal files are used to take away the sharp edge of the deck and they are then rubbed smooth with a block and various grades of sandpaper.
TRAMPA are happy to announce that we can now offer CUSTOM PAINT JOBS on our decks. We’ve been releasing our parts in an amazing selection of colours - and now it’s time we offer the deck to match!
We’re luckily sited next to an awesome car spray shop, which are happy to take on some of our decks and make them shine! They know their paint, and know techniques for making any colour pop, without adding too much weight to the finished deck - guaranteeing a perfect & even finish that’ll last for years.
We’ve got a wide range of colours for you to pick and choose from, or you can send over a pantone of your own and we’ll match it the best we can!
Custom Sprayed Decks costs £100 extra, and should be ready to ship two weeks from your order.
Made from the same secret, indestructible composite that give TRAMPA decks their unrivalled pop & performance, Electric decks have specially designed features that work in harmony with some amazing electrical components. 9-69 Original or 10-73 BigBoi deck size/shape.
Our original deck size - 9 inches wide with a 69cm footstance. This size has proven to be a perfect fit for most adult riders. Available as 16 or 17 ply.
A wider, longer & stiffer deck - 10 inches wide with a 73cm footstance. Made for taller & heavier riders. Available as 16, 17 or 18 ply.
Featuring a specially routed channel, for running power cables from the MONSTER BOX to the motors, within the centre of the deck. Neatly covered & protected by a flexible PCB containing the motor sensor cables (held in position using pan-head screws & grip tape). This keeps all important cables out of the way, safe & dry – while improving the finished look of the board 10x.
The TRAMPA INFINITY truck is the strongest SPRING TRUCK in the product range! To ensure the maximum strenght possible the hanger is made from FORGED ALUMINUM & it's one solid piece! The INFINITY Hanger is fitted with 12mm SOLID STEEL Axles. The 12mm Solid Axles are HEAT TREATED. Heat treating steel makes it substantially stronger, more resistant to impact & less prone to rust. 12mm Solid Axles are without doubt the strongest Axles in the TRAMPA range. The Axles are first Glued & then Screwed with a Marine Grade Stainless Steel Grub Screw locking them in the perfect position to mount your wheel too. The Hanger is connected to an EXTRUDED & T6 HEAT TREATED Aluminum BASEPLATE & as it's name suggests the INFINITY HS-11 TRUCK is designed to last forever!!
TRAMPA’s huge range of bindings are the most customisable on the market - meaning you’ll be able to get the perfect fit for your riding style - in any colour scheme you can think up.
All TRAMPA bindings use Stainless steel Dome Headed Bolts, connected through the Footstrap into L-Brackets, ensuring no discomfort to the foot. The L-Brackets are 'multi positional' allowing the rider the exact foot-stance they require. All TRAMPA Bindings are supplied with a Marine grade A4 Stainless Steel deck fixing kit included.
TRAMPA's RATCHET BINDINGS are the number 1 choice of Bindings for Mountain Boarding. The Ratchet Buckle mechanism allows the rider to lever the bindings very tight, treating the rider to a locked in & fully connected boarding experience. TRAMPA Bindings wrap snugly over the top of your foot so firm footwear is advisable. The EVA Foam Padding is ribbed on the underside of the Footstrap, keeping the foot locked into the Bindings whilst riding over rough terrain.
A hook on the Base of the Ratchet Buckle fits into a special slot on the top of the Footstrap. This clever 3 point connection prevents any movement in the connection of the Straps, allowing the rider the confidence in their equipment to concentrate purely on their riding. Although the Ladder strap will ultimately wear over time, it has been re-enforced on both sides at its base, guaranteeing performance when riding.
TRAMPA CAMLOCK BINDINGS are the #1 choice of binding for all top level Kite Boarders. The Camlock system allows the user to 'Lock the Bindings' in the desired position allowing easy step in / step out action. Should the board be dropped on the Bindings when attempting aerial maneuvers (or similar) the Cam-lock system stops the Bindings from "closing-up", which in turn allows the user to be able to easily put their foot back into the Bindings & continue riding without any hassle.
TRAMPA CAMLOCK BINDINGS use the same 3 point connection as the ratchet bindings, preventing any movement in the connection of the Straps. The Ladder strap will ultimately wear over time so give care to this part when adjusting it.
TRAMPA's Nylon Hook BINDINGS are great for Mountain Board beginners, and perfect for Kite Boarders of all levels. Once Velcroed together they remain locked in their position making it really easy to get your foot in & out - especially good for Kite-Boarders trying to deal with a powerful kite in strong winds whilst trying to step onto a Board at the same time!
To set the bindings, open the Nylon Hook STRAPS and place your foot in-between, then without too much force sandwich the Nylon Hook straps into a comfortable position over the top of your foot. Remember to set the position of your velcro straps using the footwear you will be using when riding & practice stepping in & out of your bindings to get used to its feel.
TRAMPA's LUXURY VELCRO BINDINGS give you best of both worlds. Between the easily-customisable velcro straps from the Nylon Hook Bindings and the lush EVA foam padding from the Camlock and Ratchet style bindings, TRAMPA’s Luxury Velcro Bindings are easy to step in and out of, and keep your feet locked in comfortably when you need them to be most.
TRAMPA HEEL STRAPS lock your feet into the bindings and make you feel at one with the deck. When using Heel Straps you’re committed to the ride and have more control over the board. Most Pro-Riders use Heel Straps when MOUNTAIN BOARDING, as feeling locked to the board increases confidence, without the worry of your feet potentially working themselves out of the bindings whilst ripping over the rough terrain.
With 3 pairs of different length LADDER STRAPS to choose from, the TRAMPA HEEL STRAPS easily adjust to fit to any sized shoe that comfortably fits onto a Mountain Board. A CAMLOCK BUCKLE is used to Lock the Ladder Strap on one side of your foot and a RATCHET BUCKLE is used on the other side. The Ratchet Buckle easily tightens the Ladder into the Heel Straps so that your foot is locked into a comfortable position!.
TRAMPA Heel Straps are universally fitting and are supplied with a Marine Grade Stainless Steel FITTING KIT as standard, so only take a few minutes to assemble.
MONSTER Box MkIV fits 84x 18650 cells or 2x22000 mAh Lipos & has Panels to fit 2x VESC 6 Internally. Made specifically to work in conjunction with TRAMPA's 2WD Electric Decks but also works on any thing it can be adapted too
TRAMPA's MONSTER BATTERY BOX is amazing! It could quite literally change your life! Surface mounted between the riders feet the MONSTER Box is often thought of as being a little bit ugly, but real beauty is not skin deep & its whats inside that matters...
the MONSTER Box is surface mounted to give maximum ground clearance when riding off road (of which the majority of the TRAMPA Products are designed to be ridden off road & when you ar riding off road you do need extra clearance or you will get snagged up rocks & constantly bashing on anything that protrudes from the ground), plus mounting the box on the surface in the way that we do with Rubber bushings, retains 95% of the full flex of the deck that the TRAMPA decks are so much famed for, the TRAMPA name was derived from the name Trampoline as the they both have amazing flexible properties, securing a large frame underneath your ride removes all the flex, fun & performance you get from a TRAMPA Deck.
The Monster Box is large enough to internally fit 2x VESC's & 2x 22,000 mAh Lipo cells or up to 12s9p 18650 cells which is an amazing power pack to have that's designed to give you nothing but MAX POWER!!
Designed to work in conjunction with the TRAMPA Electric Mountainboard Deck, the Motor cables from the VESC are forced through rubber cable entry points out the bottom of the Monster box & directly into the CNC precision cut channel that's wide enough to run 6 high quality motor cables through the center of the deck, all the way to the motors, a PCB board running the balance cables is screwed over the motor cables securing them, then covered with Grip tape (nobody would know they were there) giving a real tidy job leaving others wondering how the power gets from the box to the motors :-)
Made from 2mm & 4mm thick 3k Twill Carbon Fiber panels the Monster box has been CNC machined with a 2.1mm groove to allow the precision cut side panels to slot in & interconnect perfectly, giving a very tight & Strong connection to the box. The box is held together with Aluminum Hex Spacers that are Glued & Screwed through the base of the box with countersunk Bolts. More longer countersunk bolts are then used to screw the lid down onto the box sidewalls giving an incredibly neat tight strong finish to the assembly.
Fitted to the top of the Monster Box is the LCD Battery display housing that is made from Glass Fiber. The LCD Display pushes straight into the housing, inside this
Using M6 Countersunk Bolts for neatness & rubber bushings to give a fraction of stability the MONSTER BOX secures directly to the Centre of the deck. Premium Quality Rubber membranes are fitted into oval shaped cut-outs which are located all around the box, the Rubber membranes allow you to be able to pull your balancing cables through etc making the MONSTER BOX pretty much as close to Water proof, whilst as easy & convenient to wire up as you can possibly get...! The Monster Box also GENIUS!
TRAMPA's amazingly sturdy whilst incredibly lightweight 12s MONSTER Box will easily fit 4x 6s Zippy compact batteries which when harnessed together correctly makes TWIN 12s MONSTER!! The MONSTER box comes with a top mounted LCD Battery Indicator, so guessing range is no longer an issue!! (for a guide to set this up for your batteries click here)
2x (2x 6s batteries looped together) makes TWIN 12s (you need 4x 6s Batteries total for twin 12s motor). The power is passed through XT90s Anti Spark Connectors & 50Amp Fuses (in case anything goes wrong) directly into the VESC. You will need 2 VESC for Twin Motor, 1 VESC for each motor. TWIN 12s Power is usually more power than most riders can handle but if 12s power is not enough for you the MONSTER BOX is also plenty big enough to house custom made batteries for the few out there that are crazy enough to try, you can fit up to 80x 18650 cells which is MASSIVE POWER, insane range & amazing performance!! Using cell spacers you can harness together custom made batteries packs... you can create & fit options such as 12s9P, 11s10P or 10s11P - OMG so many options AMAZING!!!
We have crested some special BATTERY Pages on the RIDE GUIDE where we are encouraging battery makers from all the corners of the globe who wish to be part of the TRAMPA community to offer their wares & services 100% completely free of charge (If you area battery maker & would like to appear on the TRAMPA Ride Guide for batteries then there is a link on the Ride Guide page explaining how to send in all the info that we need in order for you to show) so that we can connect them with you or you with them, so that you go to somebody reputable, somebody who knows wat they are doing so you get the best product & service for your money
TWIN motor decks do not give you higher top end speed, the top speed is usually limited to the battery used & the gearing applied, but most importantly TWIN Motor decks will give you a lot more grip, especially when riding off road in loose dirt or up steep hills! TWIN Motor Decks give you more than double the grip & you will accelerate considerably faster than single motor board.
You will also need a few bits & bobs when it comes to assembling the MONSTER BOX. The Monster Box slots & screws together like Mechano dream, but mostly its a very exciting time anticipating the sensation of all the power you are about to unleash, its not called the MONSTER BOX for no reason ya know!! lol! Stainless steel Countersunk bolts connect into both the Base & the Lid of the box, screwing neatly & tightly into threaded HEX spacers... As the lid is tightened down, you get a satisfying click as the panels lock together, giving you the confidence that everything has dropped into place perfectly as the panels slips into the groove & the gaps are no longer viable! Awesome bit of kit!
When installing your chosen batteries into your MONSTER BOX, it’s a good idea to secure them to the inside with velcro, and then pad the area around the batteries with foam. This reduces any ride-ruining-rattling sounds & keeps the batteries safe from bouncing around when riding over rough terrain.
Battery Box Width - 205m
Battery Box Length - 190mm
Box Height - 74mm
Introducing the amazing VESC® 6 MKV Speed Controller, the fourth major product update of the world famous VESC 6 motor controller product line. Packed with a variety of amazing new features, this VESC motor controller is certainly worth of it’s pimpin’ gold logo.
The first VESC controller capable of hibernating, your board can conserve power while not in use - reducing power consumption to just 20μA – less than the self-discharge rate of the batteries. Or with automatic power off, your VESC controller can switch itself off after a set amount of time.
No more loop keys! Compatible with power buttons / switches, the VESC 6 MKV controller can be ready to go with a single press / flick. If desired, multiple devices can share a single button.
Roll-to-start – it’s possible to set your board to power up with a small kick/nudge!
In its development, no Mosfet switches were used - due to their tendency to eventually blow up. This saves on the additional costs of replacing them, & also adds to the longevity of the VESC 6 MKV.
When we developed the VESC 75/300 controller, it was obvious that most of its features would be handy to have in the VESC 6 controller format. As a result, Benjamin Vedder took on the challenge and re-designed the entire PCB of the VESC 6 controller, to make new, powerful features available in a smaller & cheaper 60V rated package.
The VESC 6 MKV controller features THREE PHASE SHUNTS & adjustable CURRENT / VOLTAGE FILTERS - detecting any motor attached more precisely and reliably than ever before. Consequently all kinds of motors now run as smooth as butter & react PERFECTLY LINEAR to throttle input commands.
You’ll also find a new IMU chip fitted - featuring a gyroscope, accelerometers and a compass, the VESC 6 MKV knows its 3D orientation in space, 3 axis acceleration values and directions.
UAVCAN has been added to the firmware allowing to interact with commonly used flight controllers like the PIXHAWK ®* devices. An incredible 12,000 lines of code have been added for the new hardware releases. To make the VESC controller nearly indestructible, the low voltage rails were redesigned A-Z.
VESC-Tool software is now available as an Android™ compatible App, allowing you to configure your VESC or VESC controller array with only a few clicks. User specific PROFILES will let you change in between different setups with a single tap on the fly.
Using an original VESC 6 MKV controller, motor detection is now more precise than ever. Extreme low inductance (0.5 μH) motors are no issue!
Parameters for gearing and wheel diameter have been added, allowing display of speed, Wh usage per distance travelled, precise battery indicator, current consumption, duty cycle and power. Beautiful self-adjusting analogue displays make the readings of all parameters very enjoyable.
What makes the original VESC hardware so special?
The original hardware is perfectly matched to work seamless withe VESC-Tool software code. Both, hardware and software, have been designed by the same engineer, knowing all critical detail.
TRAMPA BOARDS LTD has teamed up with the internationally renowned 'YODA of electronics' (Benjamin Vedder) to bring to the world the most advance electronic speed controllers ever to be produced! Benjamin's family name is Vedder & the V in the brand VESC represents this. VEDDERs Electronic Speed Controller! There have been many ESC's before, but now the VESC line of products officially exists, made to work seamless with the latest software developments. Benjamin is globally renowned for his incredible electronics and software skills. He has worked tirelessly for well over 7 years fine tuning preceding versions of the globally famous & Trade Marked VESC products & after teaming up with TRAMPA BOARDS Ltd the development of the VESC product line has taken him to his highest capability yet.
The TRAMPA VESC controllers comes fitted as standard with TRAMPA's very own & very special Silicone Coated & TRAMPA logo'd cables which are made up of 1036 Strands of Highly Flexible Top quality German copper. These quality details ensure the maximum performance at all times. Attached To the premium copper cables are genuine Amass XT90s connectors one side & 4mm Gold Plated Bullet connectors the other. The VESC 6 MKIII is installed with a custom moulded Internal Silicone Seal & is neatly fitted into the Heat sink which is a Solid Block of CNC'd 6061T6 Aluminum, used for dispensing the heat and offering maximum protection, allowing easy fitting and maximum good looks!..
The VESC line of produces are the most powerful & impressive Electric Speed Controller Benjamin has ever envisioned! They are arguably by far the best and most versatile Electronic Speed Controllers the world has ever seen!! E Boarding, E-Biking, Remote control of all kinds including Drones & Robotics and Camera equipment (as well as thousands of industrial & recreational applications) are all about to be revolutionized by using the VESC series of products that will all come to the market soon...
Using the a VESC controller in your TRAMPA BOARD setup (Regardless of which model) will allow you to add any battery up to 12s with 60V of peak voltage. This is the perfect limit to give you incredible performance from your electric TRAMPA motors or similar. Using the new VESC TOOL software, you will be able to fine tune your performances relevant to your application, where you will be able to calculate your top end speeds & approx distance to travel using different combinations of power & gearing settings. Beautiful!
VESC controllers comes to you ready to plug in & go! They are delivered to you in a very stylish precision cut 6061 T6 aluminum heat-sink housing which has the TRAMPA & VESC logo beautifully laser etched to its surface & for further splash proofing we have invested into another mould for additional exterior Silicone Sealing which is available as an accessory to purchase.
The performance of the TRAMPA VESC controllers, compared to preceding third party models, is light years ahead! This is demonstrated in the cost as cheap non effective clones are sold according to their price not their quality. If you want the best performance then stick to the original hardware source - it will save you a lot of money on the long run and is a guarantee for ultimate performance and max compatibility with future software releases.
Our VESC controllers are being configured with the brand new Open Source, GPL V3 licensed VESC®-Tool Software: www.vesc-project.com and on the Google Play Store™*.
The Open source, GPL V3 licensed VESC Firmware will come pre-installed on the device, allowing us to do extra testing of the device, prior to shipping.

TRAMPA's Generation III PRO BELT DRIVE Motor Mount is a work of art! Made predominantly from T6 Aluminium, every piece has been precision made to give simple assembly & maximum performance.
The Pro Belt Drive Motor Mount will give you the same kind of performance as experienced when riding an Enduro Motor bike, it uses a lower gearing ratio of 4.71:1 giving a higher top speed when compared to the Spur Gear Drive setup - which has a higher gear ration of 5.9:1 (for better acceleration).
The Gen III Pro Belt Drive Motor Mount will only fit to Precision CNC Hangers, using TRAMPA's special Conical Clamping system to securely attach onto the Hanger. The Assembly of any of the Pro Motor Mounts is incredibly sturdy & robust; perfect for the rough terrain they’ll be ripping across.
Accommodating a 66 Tooth Slave pulley, it is possible to adjust your gearing by swapping between 13, 14 or 15 tooth Motor pulleys. 13 tooth motor pulleys are perfect for hill climbing, whereas 15 tooth pulleys will achieve a higher top speed, & 14s are a nice balance between the two.
You can further adjust the performance by changing the Rear Drive wheel size. Changing from 8” to 9” or 10“ Tyres has a massive effect on the performance of the board. Check out the Pro Belt gearing chart to see estimated top speeds of different tyre & pulley combinations.
It is only possible to fit the TRAMPA 5 Spoke Hubs to Pro Drive Slave Pulleys. This means the 5-Spoke Superstar & Megastar wheels fit no problem. However it is only possible to run 8 – 10 inch tyres on the Pro Drives, due to low clearance around the housing tubs.
Enclosed within the Motor Mount tub is the Belt Tension Roller - a Bearing Mounted in Aluminium housing, that guides the belt into the optimum position/tension, to maintain the max amount of grip between the belt & the pulley.
Its possible a belt can snap for a variety of reasons. If you’re the kind of rider that likes to go off into the wilderness, then you should always ride with a couple of spare belts (when one snaps, chances are the other isn’t far off). TRAMPA's Pro Belt Drive utilises two special cut-outs that ‘ejects’ broken belts from the housing – slimming the chances of snapped belts jamming up the Motor Pulley.
The best way to prevent a belt snap is to check over & replace the Pulleys & belts on a semi-regular basis - BEFORE they have chance to fail on you. Riding, accelerating & braking hard will wear out your belts & pulleys faster. We recommend you service your board every three rides, or after any particularly tough ride. Check the hardware is tight, the belts aren’t worn, & for any damage, particularly to the motor mounts/trucks. Ensure the tub is free from any dust/dirt. Servicing your board is important for keeping it running smoothly, as well as for your safety when riding.
To describe what it feels like to ride the twin-engine Electric mountain board is beyond words! In other extreme sports such as snowboarding or surfing, you’re relying on the weather or tide, when it does come it doesn't last long, & often enough some punk will beat you to it. Whereas riding the E-Board is like being on an endless wave or the perfect slope of fresh snow that just goes on forever - or at least until your feet are aching so bad you need a break from all the carves! If you just can’t live without all the power under your feet then a TWIN Motor Mountain Board will give you the kind of performance you have always dreamed off!
Compatible with a range of different powered motors, and 13-15 tooth motor pulleys, you can tailor the motors to your exact needs - which is what we’re all about at TRAMPA!
With loads of useful features packed into our premium design, TRAMPA has created something very special for the Mountainboarders - Carbon Fiber Motor Mounts & Motor Protection frame - 6061 T6 Aircraft grade alloy parts - Marine Grade Stainless Steel nuts, bolts washers & spacers - German made High Power 15mm wide Premium Strong Belts. Flat Headed Ball ended M8 Grub Screws allows for Perfect drive alignment in assembly. Single screw Belt Tensioning Systems with a built in Idle Pulley force the belt & teeth to interlock perfectly, with a small motor pulley to gain maximum grip on teeth - bringing immediate power to the wheels. Simple wheel disassembly (both pulleys stay in position after wheel disassembly), customizable design for advanced DIY projects. The unique shapes of the TRAMPA 35° HOLYPRO deck & the 35° HS11 deck, allows any customer who owns one of these models, to be able to purchase the MDT kit & connect it directly to their existing TRAMPA Trucks. They can purchase & fit the MDT kit they need to convert their existing board as an after market purchase.
As you will expect, TRAMPA has raised the bar in terms of quality & performance across the entire industry, as every electric product in the TRAMPA range uses only the very lightest & best performing materials available. The individual parts combine perfectly thought out the entire product range & TRAMPA's Electric Powered Boards have stunningly good performance :-)
Introducing the Amazing WAND CONTROLLER
Frank Drenckhahn - King of design & production at TRAMPA & Benjamin Vedder - Creator of the VESC aka the 'Yoda of Electronics', spent the winter period of 2018/19 designing a revolutionary remote controller, with some new & very exciting 'E-Skate-specific-features' to work in direct relation with the VESC / TRAMPA series of products.
There are many basic remote control options already on the market, but none of them hit the high bar when it comes to features & reliability. Here at TRAMPA, we’ve experienced riding with in-sufficient, untrustworthy remotes. Consequently, we’ve always dreamed of holding a reliable, versatile, ever-lasting, informative & safe remote controller, that matches the outstanding performance of the VESC software & the TRAMPA equipment that they’d be so frequently paired up to. You should expect nothing less than magic whilst waving the WAND over TRAMPA assembled VESC Products!!
High-end TRAMPA Electric boards deserve to be controlled with a high-end remote, you need to be 100% in control over the Monster under your feet! Personally, I always dreamed of something that feels nice in your hands, made of high grade material, with a little bit of weight to represent the same high quality level of our TRAMPA boards, and the cutting edge technology the VESC offers. This remote is made from 6061 T6 (Aero-grade) Aluminum with a sleek carbon fiber battery lid. You can see & feel the quality straight away.
REAL TIME DATA DISPLAY
The WAND is fitted with a circular high resolution OLED display that reveals all the crucial information you want to have at hand while riding your board. The screen might be small, but the list of data it shows is HUGE! You’ll be able to scroll through and see your current speed, average speed, amp draw, duty cycle, average watt hour draw, battery indicator (for both board & remote), recuperation and more to be added through firmware updates!
Whatever data the VESC captures can ultimately be displayed on the OLED screen. Benjamin even added in a few tools to display animated graphics, for ultimate pimpness!
Ever over shot the junction & wished you could reverse a little to pull you back from the traffic? Well now with the WAND in your hand, pulling back on the Thumb Controller bringing you to a stop & keeping your thumb in the braking position will automatically instigate the Smart reverse feature which will ramp up enough Amps to switch the rotation direction of the motor but just at slow speed so that the board reverses you out of trouble..... A very very clever feature designed to keep our clients safe...
SAFETY & GESTURE Control: AN OUTLOOK TOWARDS FUTURE FW UPDATES
What is really exciting is the IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) inside The WAND... The IMU knows the exact orientation of The WAND in space and gathers acceleration values of all the space axis at the same time, acceleration, speed & elevation. Using the IMU, Benjamin will in future be able to code some really useful safety features, as well as some playful things. For instance; one day the remote will be able to tell if you take a tumble & will be able to stop your board safely. It will know when it is resting upside down on a surface, and refuses to send accidental signals to the board. Powering up when you pick it up & going to sleep after 5 minutes of inactivity The WAND is smart enough to save its own battery! It can even be used as a water spirit level, helping you to align things perfectly! Expect some nice FW updates in the FUTURE. IMU features will become available over a period of time!
TRANSFORM YOUR REMOTE
On top of the features mentioned above, amazing piece of tech features the options to either be converted to a pistol grip style trigger remote, or to have an additional small trigger on the lower side to allow additional index finger control. I like to use my index finger to send acceleration commands, while using my thumb to send brake signal commands. Others want to use their thumb or index finger only. Much alike TRAMPA’s boards, these remotes are made to be customised around you!
We’ve all wasted too much time on the pre-riding ritual known as “Where the **** did I leave the remote?!” Well no more. We decided to equip The WAND with a Magnetic bottom panel. A small metal sheet or magnet attached to your board (stick a big washer to your Battery Box or similar), will keep your remote safe where it belongs all the time, or you simply keep your remote on the fridge, next to the car keys!
Battery life has always been an issue in the past. Sometimes you want to go out for a ride, but you forgotton to charge up your remote. Then after a quick charge, you end up worried that it‘ll die before the end of your ride.
When Frank & Benjamin designed this remote, ultra low energy consumption was a prime goal to achieve.
We chose to use standard AAA batteries, so that you can easily carry spares & swap them out - like changing the batteries on your TV remote, giving you ultimate confidence that you will never ever run out of battery. Two tiny AAA cells are good for 30 hours of constant operation. AAA cells are available at gas stations, supermarkets, drug stores, or even in a remote house in the middle of nowhere in a kitchen draw, should you get real desperate while out on your endless trails!
SOFTWARE & SUPPORT
We don't want you to have to buy a new remote because the software becomes outdated, so we made sure this remote would have a USB & SWD port, allowing you to easily flash the latest firmware, and unlock the latest features when they get released. This remote is future proof & will surprise you many times over its life. The Wand Firmware will be Open Source. Please browse Benjamin Vedders Github for source files and copyright information : https://github.com/vedderb
This remote is fully compatible with the TRAMPA NRF Dongle. An NRF connection is required to pair the Controller to the VESC device. Depending on if or when you bought the dongle, you might need to update its firmware in order to make the connection to the controller though the VESC, which is a simple task. This remote is compatible with any ESC that is based on VESC technology, and running the VESC firmware. Simply plug the TRAMPA NRF Dongle into the UART port of your ESC.
CALIBRATION AND MULTIPLE BOARDS
This remote doesn't require calibration. A simple one click pairing procedure does the trick. This remote will become a solid partner to all your boards. No more need for multiple remotes for lots of boards, unless you want to ride out with your friends. In which case you can leave your old PPM remote receiver plugged in & switch over to that using the VESC-Tool App.
In order to connect The WAND to your VESC or VESC based ESC, you will need to do a Firmware update on that ESC. Simply plug the TRAMPA NRF Dongle into your VESC & pairing is pretty much automatic, just follow the on-screen instructions. The TRAMPA NRF Dongle can be updated to the latest, compatible FW, using the latest desktop VESC-Tool.

Using the ULTRA POWER Charger It is possible to charge & balance 2x Batteries packs up to 12s in size at the same time...
SO for example if you have 2x Electric Boards in your collection, (lucky boy) if they are both running a single 12s pack (i.e. 2x 6s 22000 mAh HRB Cells in the MONSTER Box or 6x 2s HRB 10, 12 or 16000mAh in the Underboard Battery Tray or the BEAST box's) then you can fast charge & balance 2 x Boards at the same time or if you only have 1x Board but you are running 2x 12s packs (i.e. 4x Zippie compact cells fit directly into the Monster Box using a Graupner charger you can only charge 1x 12s pack at a time so you will need double the time to charge 2x 12s packs if you have 4x Zippies cells unless you purchase another Graupner charger so you can then charge both cell packs at the same time - if this is the option you have selected, then it is also possible to boost the speed of the charge of your 2x Graupner chargers by placing a Booster charger before them) then this is the deluxe charge for you.
This charger is terribly expensive but it is everything the 2x Graupner chargers with a Booster box option tries to be. It can charge incredibly fast up to 15A, it has an internal booster with amp adjustment for charging & Balancing all kinds of cells. The best part about this charger is that you simply plug it in & it knows the cells you have, Its possible to mix up the balance cable connections when plugging in for the first time but it alerts you to this &you simply swap over the cables & it knows... (best practice is to mark the balance cables so you know in the future which one goes into which port without having to exchange them each time for guessing wrongly lol) simply select the amount of Amp charge you wish to put into it by pressing the select button (a low 2A charge will balance your batteries beautifully but will take a long time to do, where as turning the charger up to 15A will give you a fast boosted charge, which is great if the weather is amazing & you cant get enough riding on that day but its not good practice to fast charge your cells all of the time, so only fast charge when you don't have time to wait for a nice balance charger, but selecting a low to mid power option on a regular basis will keep your cells in the best operating conditions),
The ULTRA POWER Charger is not supplied as standard with Balance extension cables or XT90 Cables to plug into your batteries. We have acquired some Balance extension cables and have also made some nice 30cm TRAMPA Silicon charge cables with XT90 connectors on to make charging with the ULTRA POWER Charger to be really easy & fiddle free. The Cable kit is available at a discounted price when purchased with the ultra power charger, however the extension cables can be purchased anywhere on the internet and its not rocket science to make your own extension cables if you have the time to do this & will of course save you a few quid in the mean time.
This Special ULTRA POWER Charger for the Complete TRAMPA Electric Boards comes Supplied with a complete ULTRA Power Charger Cable Extension Kit which makes plugging into your board really easy & so much less fiddly than the shorter cables it comes with PLUS it comes with either UK or EURO wall Plug (sadly no US Charger plug option but a simple world wide adaptor plug will do the trick to convert it). Please select your wall plug option below.

TRAMPA's PRO BELT DRIVE Electric Mountainboardis designed for ALL adult sized riders & will easily achieve speeds upto 60kmph whilst tackling the toughest terrains known to Electric Boarding!
The PRO BELT DRIVE (PBD) Mountain Board is likened in performance to a 'Motor-Enduro Bike'. The PBD has almost the same intense acceleration as the PRO Spur Gear Drive but through a higher gear ration of 4.7 / 1, the PBD is capable of HIGHER CRUISING SPEEDS than the Spur Gear Drive, therefore the Pro Belt Drive is the perfect Board option to take if your dreaming on making long rides or river tours as you get a bit more out the batteries as your able to cruise at a fair speed but consuming the power at a more efficient rate, giving you slightly futher range from the same cells if compared to the SPG if driven at the same Cruising speeed.
The PRO SPUR GEAR DRIVE Mountainboard uses a higher gear ratio of 5.9/1 giving insane acceleration performance like that of a Motorcross Bike. The Spur Gear Drive is the perfect Deck option for mega fast pull off's Steep hill riding & track racing making the most of the insane torque for some crazy acceleration (while sacrificing some of it’s top speed).
TRAMPA's PRO BELT DRIVE is housed within a super strong Tub thats been CNC’d from a solid block of heat-treated T6 Aluminium. Ensuring all the moving parts are safe from the elements, as well as knocks & bumps that come along naturally when riding off road...
In the case of a belt snap, the tab has specially designed cut-outs that eject the snapped belt - instead of potentially jamming up the pulleys, potentailly causing a wheel lock.
The PRO BELT DRIVE uses a low gear ratio of 1:4.7 – with a choice of 13, 14 or 15 tooth motor pulleys that change the ratio to 1:4.713, 1:4.714 or 1:4.715 - all giving vastly different performances & top speeds – check the Gearing tab for specs.
As standard, PRO Mountainboards are built around the latest CNC'd TRAMPA Electric Deck (available in a variety of plys). This deck features a specially designed channel for running the power cables from the MONSTER BOX to the motors within the centre of the deck. Neatly covered & protected by a flexible PCB containing the motor sensor cables (held in position using pan-head screws & grip tape).
This all keeps important cables out of the way, safe & dry – while improving the finished look of the board 10x.
All PRO MOUNTAINBOARDS are fitted with a MONSTER BATTERY BOX as standard. Working in conjunction to the channel in the CNC’d Electric Deck; the Monster Box sits in between the rider’s feet, evenly distributing the weight of the batteries, without sacrificing any ‘pop’ or flex from the deck.
MONSTER BOXES can house two VESC controllers and still have 205 x 190 x 74mm of usable battery space! Allowing you to fit up to 2x 22,000mAh Lipo cells, or up to 12s9p 18650 cells.
Made from 2mm & 4mm thick 3k Twill Carbon Fibre panels, the Monster box has been CNC machined with a 2.1mm groove - allowing the panels to slot in & interconnect perfectly, giving a watertight & strong construction to the box.
Using TWIN 6376 160KV DC MOTORS (the most powerful motors we currently offer), this board is insanely quick! Pairing these motors with 15 tooth Motor Pulleys & 9 inch tyres, this board will be hitting nearly 70km/h! These motors weren’t designed for being left behind.
Sitting snuggly in the new PRO Motor Housing, which has been custom fitted with a stainless Steel mesh acting as a filter, the massive 6376 motors are safe from any knocks, as well as any dust particles / debris that could get inside & impeed them.
TRAMPA's PRO Mountainboards use PRECISION VERTIGO SPRING TRUCKS. These trucks have been precision CNC’d to work in perfect harmony with the CONICAL CLAMP TRUCK ADAPTOR - ensuring accurate & sturdy PRO MOTOR MOUNT attachment.
VERTIGO spring trucks are fully adjustable steering system, which allows you to accurately fine-tune the steering resistance through SPRING ADJUSTORS & swapping out different coloured DAMPAS. With hollow steel 9.525mm axles & a lot of their bulk CNC’d out, VERTIGO trucks only weigh 1676g per set!
It’s possible to attach T6 Aluminum BULL BARS to your front truck, which not only knocks the road-kill out of the way & potentially mows the lawn as you go, but also allows you to connect all kinds of things from lights, cameras, Sat-Navs, or anything else you may need on the front end of your board.
PRO Mountainboard Drives fit 8, 9 & 10 inch wheels with SUPERSTAR or MEGASTAR hubs. With so many Spoke, Rim & Tyre options – you can build wheels that look pimp, and fly through any terrain you throw at them. Using the new OFFSET or DEEP DISH MEGASTAR RIMS its possible to widen your wheelbase, adding more stability - perfect for taller/larger riders!
We’ve become quite fond of setting up boards with 8 inch wheels on the front, & 9 inch wheels connected to the motors - a game changer when it comes to grip, acceleration & top speeds! So-much-so that we’re offering 2x 9 inch MEGASTAR Wheels with a £50 discount, for people who want to experience it for themselves!
PRO Mountain boards come with Bindings as standard, and are able to fit any style we offer.
TRAMPA's PRO PRO BELT DRIVE Electric Mountain Board is delivered to you FULLY ASSEMBLED in a Luxury Travel Bag, with a Graupner Ultramat 18 Charger. All you need to do is purchase & fit the batteries and you’re ready to roll!
You will need to supply your own Batteries to make the board move. There are many options when it comes to cells; desired range & budget usually determine the sort of cells you should purchase.
People ask us all the time what cells to use - & there are hidden issues with some cells, such as availability, price, shipping restrictions, wrong connectors, or complexity of build (especially when it comes to making custom build batteries). Taking all these factors into consideration, we found a regular supply of good performance cells from a variety of suppliers & consequently built our Battery Boxes around them. Check out our RECOMMENDED BATTERIES page for help. Easy :-)
We recommend you service your board every three rides, or after any particularly tough ride. Check the hardware is tight, the belts aren’t worn, and for any damage, particularly to the motor mounts/trucks. Reapply grease to the gears and insure the tub is free from any dust/dirt. Servicing your board is important for keeping it running smoothly, as well as for your safety when riding.
