Off Road Hovercraft

HovPod Off Road Hovercraft gives you the incredible ability to go off paved or public roads and get into some rugged terrain.  The typical profile of a off road single-track is often mined with rocks, roots and washboard ruts. The surface is a ragged edge of sharp angles and miniature cliffs. When your tires hit these, they bounce. The magnitude of the bouncing is partially controlled by the tires: The greater their width and the lower the pressure per square inch, the more shock they'll absorb. Hov Pod Off Road Hovercraft glides over this terrain without feeling every change or shock.

If you have a task or adventure where you have a need to explore, travel, survey, rescue or transport people or products across different kinds of off road terrain, contact Hov Pod, lets discuss your project?

Other Vehicle’s Off Road Difficulties

For those of us who want to hop in the 4 x 4 and head for some some off road driving in the dirt some mud sand will be required. Hard-packed sand is a snap, but what if your tires have to take on loose, fluffy sand on a beach or in the desert? Here are some general tips to help with your sand driving.

Air out your tires

Popular Mechanics suggests keeping tire psi at 12 to 15 for loose sand driving.

Don’t be too sharp

Sharp turns on sand will cause your tires to dig in deeper, which you don’t want to do. Driving in sand should be kept as straight as possible.

Do not attempt with front-wheel drive

If you are planning to drive in sand, don’t do it with a front-wheel drive car. You’ll become stuck almost immediately.
