The RoveMax Model M1 is a medium rover wheel used for construction of land-based vehicles.


The Model M1 was once the fastest wheel available, but the TR-2L Ruggedized Vehicular Wheel is lighter, more energy-efficient, faster and more impact-resistant, making it the superior choice for most situations.

However, in Career Mode the TR-2L does require unlocking Advanced Motors to access, which is a Level 8 Science and a dead-end, with no Science options requiring it as a prerequisite in the Stock game. This may mean that Career Mode players who prioritise other science areas will use the M1 for some considerable time.

While active, the RoveMax Model M1 wheel drains 1.0 Electric Charge per second (3600 E/hr).

Product description

After years of outcry against the lack of proper powered wheels, a small startup company named Kerbal Motion was founded and delivered just what the public wanted - the RoveMax Model 1 powered rover wheel.
