Whenever there is new gear released by Evolve, there happens to be a certain hype around it. Check our Evolve R2 remote review – a new remote for the GT and GTX Boards. There was quite the hype and some problems, followed by an R2 update which solved many problems. We tested the new Remote for a few weeks now and will show the pros and cons about it.
The Kickstarter project Mellow Boards from Germany under the leadership of CEO Johannes Schewe is now shipping in large volumes to Europe, the US and later other regions.
Time for an interview with Johannes to learn more about this success story.
Must an E-Board be a longboard or skateboard with electric motor? How about an electric surfboard or E-Surfer?
Well, you have to have a decent budget to afford an E-Surfer, but it is definitely a lot of fun.
Looking for something easy to carry? Check out our Maxfind Max C review.
The one thing all the great and fast Boards have in common is how big and heavy they are. Meant just for riding, not for carrying it on the train or taking them with you while traveling, that’s totally okay, but that’s where all the new small electric cruiser boards step in.
Landwheel from China just announced the 2018 Landwheel LX-3 electric skateboard motor drive with improved electronics and materials.
You can buy a complete board or just the drive with remote control. Let’s see what the conversion kit has to offer.
When you read about an Onewheel Crash you will hear a lot about the Onewheel Nosedive. The motor would shut down for a moment which in almost 100% of the times results into a crash.
Some people sold their Onewheel or Onewheel+ because they are not willing to take this risk anymore. Others believe that it mainly depends on the skills of the rider and that each new sport / technology has its risks in early days.
If you have the budget and like it rough you should look into the Bajaboard G4 or G4X, a premium off-road electric board from Australia.
The extremely powerful electric skateboard does not only make up to 60 km/h or 37 mph, but also serves you on the beach and in the snow.
After the X1 and X2 there is with the Onan X3 a new electric longboard kit available since 2017.
It is slightly cheaper than the Onan X2 which is still on sale and will coexist.
