Powered Snowboard Great Fun To Ride
You don't have to be a snowboarder to enjoy the fun of cruising across snow-covered terrain with this new "powered snowboard". It steers like a snowboard but is powered by a motorized track.
  "It's a lot of fun to ride and a real attention getter. It's good exercise, too," says Mattracks, Inc. The company is well known for its rubber track conversions of pickups and other vehicles
  The Mattracks Powerboard is 65 in. long, weighs 150 lbs., and rides on a flexible rubber track that has 1 3/4-in. deep snow lugs. The track is designed to curve when the rider shifts his body, which causes the Powerboard to turn.
  The machine is powered by a mid-mounted, 200 cc, 4-cycle gas engine mounted on an aluminum inner frame covered by a molded-in high-density plastic chassis. The stand-on design doesn't require any type of special boots or bindings - the rider simply places his feet on a pair of serrated aluminum anti-slip platforms. He holds onto a two-way, adjustable T-bar handle with throttle control. The handle is adjustable to match the rider's height.
  The machine comes with a tethered safety shutoff switch. It's available in yellow or black.
  Sells for $1,995 MSRP.
