Say you have a 12 turn single and 12 double. The single will produce more torque and draw more amperage than that of the double. the multple winds will give you less torque and be smoother under acceleration.

I thought a single wind would give you more rpm's but less torque than a double due to less rotating mass. Isn't the double supposed to have more torque and less rpm'e while the single has more rpm's, but less torque due to the difference in rotating mass?

I am pretty sure Blue is right, cause when the traction is a little slick you want more winds because the tires are less likely to break loose. The more winds the more top end, the less winds the more low end. There is a section on teamassociated.com where you can read about what the winds and pinion gearing do, under a downloadable manual, I think. Pretty helpful.

The more winds the slower the motor, less winds more motor. if its a double it has a smoother band, if its a single it has more torque.

A 12 single will accelerate faster/harder than a 12 double.
A 10 turn will have more top end than a 19 turn.

A good 19 turn will feel better than a cheap say 14 or 16 whatever.
That's my opinion anyhow

Just to reconfirm, a single wind creates more torque because the arm has a larger gauge of wire used to make it. The larger the gauge the more current it draws, in turn the more current, which results more magnetic field being generated in the armature. The higher winds ( double, triple, quint and even hex) use more wires of much smaller guage and in turn create less magnetic field. That's why they are smother. Just ask someone who races onroad what they run. In onroad it is all traction so they can use all the torque and more of a single.
