The RDSV concept vehicle looks like an absolute beast. Even with its lean frame, it manages to look like it could outwit any mountain terrain. An aesthetic that is halfway between a rescue, and a sports vehicle, the RDSV (Rapid Deployment Snow Vehicle) definitely embodies the word Rapid!
Two hubless wheels on the front propel the vehicle forward while a snowboard back allows the vehicle to glide on ice/snow effortlessly. When matters get tough, the tires of the RDSV open out (codenamed the adaptive traction system), allowing them to grip onto snow or mud with ease. Each wheel contains 12 paddles of two kinds. Longer paddles that extend further outwards for deeper snow, and shorter paddles that work better on harder surfaces.
