rly lookin forward to the grp ride today
I’m a really big fan of these motor mounts and the method they use for covering electronics… Genius. I have a puck remote in the way, I have high hopes for it as well.
This is really the only prebuilt thane board I would consider.
i wish there were better pictures. i feel like a lot of road dust is going to get in there. from the looks of it, they’ve done a bang up job on the design. excited to try this thing out soon
I’ll post more pictures later today after our 2nd day with the Hoyt St. peeps and the BAEsk8 Group ride to Twin Peaks, San Fran’s highest accesible elevation (925’ feet). This will be a nice test for their boards and really see how they perform.
At 1pm? Where is meet up?
waiting on @sofu’s review; optimistic that this Hoyt (or something built with Hoyt St. batteries at a minimum) will solve my international travel challenges.
We didn’t esk8 in Barcelona or Dubai this year because it’s too hard to fly even with “approved” batteries (means nothing, it’s always up to the captain).
Exploratorium (Pier 15) 1:00 pm… but we just took off!
…they will stop at this place “Flywheel” which I think is a Cafe over the Presidio, recharge and then to Twin Peaks. You can catch them there on the way up.
This afternoon we gather at the Exploratorium in San Francisco for the weekly Bay Area Esk8 Group ride and got the chance to take a few more images of the Hoyt St boards.
…hope you like them…
spring-loaded auto-belt tensioners
Sounds awesome. @marcmt88 ideas
What a great looking board. Execution is top notch.
Wonder if us DIY peeps can buy the batteries and build around them…
I made it! I had an amazing time. It was good to meet everyone and put faces to esk8 aliases. It was a big group ride today. So many cool boards Kalys, La Croix, Raptor, Hoyt, DIY boards. Also, One wheels, unicycles, boosted, halo etc. my 12s4p TB battery pack got tested and was able to stick around the whole time without bringing a charger.
The Hoyt board is just as nice in real person. I am really impressed with the battery modules and with @Jonner downhill form and Coleman slide in the middle of the street. Savage.
Half the group here esk8 mob
Damn I wish I was there! I was rushing to the bart station, took a nasty spill and I now have road rash along my arm and my stomach… fucking potholes lol
Damn man, that sucks. SF city roads are shit. Hope you get better.
That’s me rolling with the hummies. Got a chance to try the Hoyt St today. It’s vesc4.x based with dual high quality motors made in the states. Kelvar reinforced stator with Japanese bearing. I heard the motors cost more than $300 each and min order quantity of 1000.
From the 5 mins I rided it. Here’s what I feel: Pros:
Overall it is a great deck. The quality of construction is really well built. A lot of very cool and innovative designs. Double deck, pulley cover, string loaded tensioner, etc.
It was a good day! Great ride with great people Bay Sk8 all day
How o the batteries work?
Do 3 of them connect in parallel? and make one big battery?
or you use them one at a time?
A video would be nice.
