Hello everyone! I want to share my newest project, my version 5.0 carbon-fiber electric longboard! This was an experiment in making a carbon-fiber deck, but it turned out very well in my opinion! Best of all, I saved a lot of money by reusing materials around the garage, and it ended up much cheaper than the “world’s first” Entortion deck (not including labor).
It cost me about $75 in materials, but it might cost first-timers up to $150 to make (you need to buy some materials, like the foam, in bulk). It has a compartment for the electronics, plywood supports for the trucks, and a foam core, which greatly decreases the weight, while adding tons of strength. This deck has no flex under 220lbs.
PS. I am working on solving the clearance issues with this board.
And here’s another awesome pic:
