(EU) Complete Mountain Board & Battery Backpack Build

Since i just lost my job (Thanks COVID) i now have plenty of time that needs filling. A project like this should be exactly what i need. Im an experienced snowboarder and a mechanically competent dude, and this is something im just dying to jump right into.

I urgently need a board as a car isnt an option for me, so the plan is to buy functioning used board i can use for everyday comuting, as a solid base for this project. Please message me if you have one for sale (€650ish) or have high end parts youd like to donate to this upcoming project. (i have a pretty sick racing simulator if you consider trading)

This listing is exactly the thing im after, yet just out of my current price range:

[EU] SALE Dual-Motor 12s MTB

Anyway here are some key bulletpoints on what i imagine the final build could look like:

oh if you could see the design im visualizing!

  • Top Speed no less than 50 kph
  • High torque chain/belt motors for smooth, sustained uphill
  • Switchable longrange/ultimate performance Battery-Backpack with quick-connect to board
  • Custom Wheels
  • Custom PaintJob
  • Custom Lighting w/app control (el wire/pad)
  • Custom Bindings

Im looking forward to getting started with this hobby and to get to know the community!

You should decide whether you want a hotrod, or transpo. It will be a lot more reliable, if it only goes 25 or so. And 25 is fast. Dont anyone tell you otherwise.

Have you thought about contacting dominik1220?

He wants to sell his deck for 850 Euros… You have 650, and want a Deck… This could work out perfectly

I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. If he bought it 400km and 3 years ago for 1000, that doesn’t seem unreasonable to go a bit lower.

It’s a demanding build price for an esk8 build from new parts, so I’m hoping you find a complete you can call your own.
