Depending on how long you’ve been reading the blogs we’ve been sharing, by now you probably know that dry ice is astoundingly versatile in how it can be used. Today, we’re sharing yet another example of how it’s being used for something out of the ordinary.
In this case, dry ice is being used in motorcycles, an electric motorcycle to be specific. Dubbed the Voxan Wattman, the bike has been made with the goal of becoming the world’s fastest electric motorcycle. The battery pack is on par with those of names like Harley Davidson and at just over 300 pounds, it comprises close to half of the Voxan Wattman’s weight.
With the goal of reaching super-fast speeds, the sheer amount of power needed would require something robust and sure enough, the Voxan Wattman features a reservoir filled with frozen CO2 that assists with drawing heat away from the battery and the motor.
