1. Our board has a powerful electric motor.
How does it work? The motor assembly is actually part of the wheel, with no external moving parts besides the wheel itself. It's quite similar to those toy car engines you’d remove from the RC car your parents bought you. We took one of those little motors, enlarged it, wrapped Urethane rubber around it and attached it to an axle. In a nutshell, that’s how our electric motor works.
What are some advantages of our in-wheel electric motor?
Quiet operation: The in-wheel motor is ultra quiet. Not only is it wrapped in Urethane rubber, but there is no gear drive, belts or chains to make additional noise. Because of this, you can cruise around town or on campus silently, and no one can tell you're riding an electric skateboard.
Zero required maintenance: No gear drive, belts or chains also means nothing to lubricate or replace, thus reducing maintenance and cost. It also makes the motor better suited to handle dirt, dust and water.
Ability to coast: Our in-wheel electric motor provides the least amount of friction of any motor type when not in use. So when the battery runs out, our board is just as easy to push as a regular board. Other electric boards from competing brands are almost impossible to push on once the battery dies.
