So after riding both Evolve and raptor 2 i decided i want the fastest and best board i could find and the best world from both hub and belt drives and IMO the closest is geared drive. And i would like really long range! So i have tried and ordered a lot of different parts to find out what works. I felt I don´t want to just assemble the board so i decided to create the deck by my self. Will post more pictures of how I did make the decks later, maybe i offer them for sale to just the decks.
The parts is:
- Self made deck that is almost a copy of the Evo Deck
- 4 x 6374 sealed motors from Maytech but i special ordered them with a few change and winding for 215 kv
- 4 x Flipsky 6.6 Vesc
- 2 x Fatboy 230 Hanger @Kug3lis
- 4 x Fatboy Gear drive @Kug3lis
- 1x 12S6P Battery with charge only made by @Acido (have been really helpful can recommend him a lot!)
- Metro Pro bluetooth module @rpasichnyk
- Vibration damping mat
- 2 x Caliber 2 baseplate
- Riptide bushings and pivot
- 2 x Riptide tunnel riser
- Eboosted Enclosure for evo board DS @Eboosted
- Abec 11 107 mm wheels
Well that is basically the main parts, a few more items will be added later. I don’t have so many pictures atm but will post more videos and pictures later. Here is after the board have been painted:
Tested how it look with the eboosted enclosure done by @Eboosted
The board upper side will be black stained to the you can se the wood but still black and have a gripe tape sprayed on.
Here is some pictures of the assemble of the gear drive and motor: Testing how the drive is mounted before i start the work: Changing the angle to work with my board: Cutting the motor axle to work with the gear drive: The pulley test mounted: Putting grease on:
After that and putting the case on i found out the motor pulley was to long out, the problem was a retaining ring close to the motor on the motor axle that was needed to be removed so i needed to redo all the work with again (was not that happy at that moment hehe ) Here are the finished with only the case left to mount:
Mounting the Vibration damping mat and put some silicone for extra waterprotection:
The battery on the board:

Making of the battery by @Acido:
More pictures and video will come later! All i can say this is insane and the sound is amazing !!
Want one to? Soon(winter 2018/19) you can order the same on www.bioboards.eu if you live in EU or the nordic site www.bioboards.se (sites not online atm but will soon be) . Their will also be a smaller 30" board that is lighter with same parts but 12s3p battery. The final version for sale will use Focbox Unity instead. They will be sold with almost no or very little profit just because i think its so fun to build! I might also add a cheaper version with same parts but hub motors and 90mm abec 11 front wheels for those who like the design of the decks and still want the best parts available under the enclosure.
