This year I have been working on designing and buiding an all terrain electric skateboard with independent suspension for hobby. As an mechanical engineer I liked to make my own design and realize it. When I was happy with the design I started to build the project. I wanted to build an electric skateboard that is able to ride in all terrain, so I choosed to use big wheels on it. I added my own design of independent suspension to create an unique driving experience while riding offroad instead of using normal skateboard trucks. the board is connected with steering rods to steer with all the 4 wheels. Extra springs are used to reposition the board to the middle after steering.
Now the board is ready I like to show it to you. The Lipo battery and motor controller are placed invisable in the frame. the 800W brushed motor gives the board more than enough power and torque and reaches a topspeed about 30km/h. I choosed consciously to use an brushed motor because the size of the motor was not a problem on this build. I hope you like it!
