Ridiculous Winches

A winch is crucial for the type of urban riding I have grown into, simply because you need more speed than a drop-in ramp allows for. A winch can get you up to speeds of 30 or even 40 mph with enough run-in space. This winter, Ridiculous Winches is coming out with a brand new auxiliary-controlled wireless winch system. It weighs 48 pounds, has an electro-magnetic clutch and you can control your speed from the handle.
