The convenience of building your own electric board on a pre-built electric board will enable you to fully customize the look and feel, high and low performance, and even the range that your board can reach.
Flexibility of design - you can create a fully customized look for the board and how to do all the setup.
Performance Flexibility - You can build boards at 20 MPH, 30 MPH, or 40 MPH.However, we do not condone or recommend cycling at 40 miles per hour.
Range flexibility - build a board that can reach ranges of 5-10 miles, 10-15 miles or even 25-30 miles. If you really want to, you can even extend your range further by adding more battery power. However, the more batteries you add, the heavier your DIY scooter becomes.
What type of electric board should I use?
There are many different types of longboard decks to choose from for building your own DIY electric skateboard.You have typical 28 "to 32" skateboard decks.A typical longboard deck is 28" to 60" in length.
We don't usually use skateboard decks because they are smaller and have smaller wheels. Smaller wheels are even less suitable for city riding, and on an electric board, you'll usually ride over speed bumps and holes, or around them. On a typical skateboard, you can maneuver around it more easily.
The best choice for making an electric board is to use a longboard deck, as it has enough room for all your electronic components. So we decided to use the longboard deck to build our electric skateboard.But which one?There are many to choose from.
Downslope longboard deck (ideal for high speed and stability.)
Through the longboard deck (easier to kick, low to the ground).
Cruise board deck (most decks can be used for low speed cruising.)
Flexy boards have greater flexibility, which makes it more difficult to build an electric board.
Pintail Longboard Decks (mainly used for carving, cruising.)
Mini cruiser longboard (28 inch to 30 inch deck possible......As high as 33 inches)
Electric Slide Construction Settings
In terms of how to build your electric board, there are several different options. This section explains the different types of electric skateboard build Settings that you can build and how to build it.
The parts (depending on the parts) of the DIY scooter are interchangeable.You can configure your Settings and upgrade your settings in the future, which is not available on other prefabricated electric skateboards.
Single motor electric skateboard - The speed of single motor electric skateboard is up to 25-30 MPH. It's more affordable than the dual-motor setup, but I personally prefer the dual-motor setup because it adds traction.
Dual motor scooter - Dual motor scooter can reach speeds in excess of 35 miles per hour. It is powered by two electric motors, usually a larger battery pack.
All terrain electric skateboard - All terrain electric skateboard can reach speeds of over 35mph. Typically, the all-terrain board will be equipped with all-terrain wheels to give it greater traction in inclement weather. You can use 6" x 2" inflatable tires, which will give you a more comfortable ride.
Hub motor electric skateboard - Hub motor electric skateboard can reach speeds of over 30 miles per hour, sometimes even higher. The problem with the hub motor is that there is an outside wheel mounted on the hub motor itself. This can sometimes be a convenient thing to do, but for high-performance hub motors it blocks airflow, and the motor usually gets hot and slowly deteriorates.
Direct drive electric skateboard - The direct drive electric skateboard is similar to the hub motor setup, except that the wheels themselves are attached to the motor, rather than the wheels themselves being completely wound around the hub motor.
