I have always thought the idea of being able to ride anywhere on your electric skateboard was a good one, who doesn’t want to choose their own path?
My first attempt at building all terrain eboards was based on standard skate trucks and motors mounted with belts & pulleys…
here are some of my early prototypes.
This was a product that i started selling in 2014 and it was a huge hit!
I custom CNC’d my own aluminium 5inch rims & pneumatic wheels & made special aluminium wheel pulleys.
This made for some awesome fun… But the problem with belts & motors that are mounted onto the hanger is they get hammered hard! Rocks, dirt, sticks, mud… all stuff that is not great for your drive train. Also the 5 inch wheels were ok for some of the harder stuff but got bogged down fairly easily…
So i went back to the drawing board and started working on something a bit more! AWESOME!
Here are my last two VLOGS that feature the All-terrain HUB MOTOR build.
I will be working on this more over the coming weeks and offering a Complete All-terrain Hub Motor Kit soon.
