Thought I would start a new thread on all the good stuff abouf the riding experience on the Raptor. Someone can do the reviews.
Have had the busiest week so far and its not over. Still have a deadline to get out tomorrow. Was at work from 7am to 8pm. Got home, changed, put on some safety gear, gave the remote a charge. Then grabbed the Raptor and went off for a ride.
Now it was already past dusk. No lights on skateboard and had to rely on the street lights.
After a rapid 30min sprint on the bike path, I was sweating like anything. Stress gone for the moment.
The board has so much power. I have a dual motor unit and its friken scary in a good way. I only weigh 60kg and keen to beat Onloops top speed. Still trying to find the sweet spot of this thing both in terms of riding position and acceleration. The throttle is really sensitive and just wants to go. Starting the trigger while the board is moving is best from start off. Its still really jerky as I try to feather the throttle at while at speed.
I think I’m just not going fast enough yet. Tonight was probably not a good idea as I was litterally riding blind and just waiting to hit a stick or crack that I couldnt see. Made it home un skathed.
Cant wait to get out again. But in daylight.
