What makes a killer commuter board??? Is it size? power? weight? maneuverability? comfort? looking awesome? Let us know why your setup works well and what is important to you.
To start the thread I’ll share my experiences. As daily esk8 commuter, I have tried to solve this dilemma a couple of different ways but haven’t got it quite right yet.
My current board is a customised 33" torqueboard carbon fibre deck, dual 6355 (rspec) motors, 10s2p battery, Nano X, Caliber II rear and Gullwing Sidewinder front truck (I need that super tight radius when skating in the city).
One of the most important things to me in a commuter is a kicktail. Being able to tic tac and kick the board up to get over kerbs is super helpful. The torqueboard carbon fibre doesn’t have a proper kicktail. So after some irritation I designed and 3D printed one to fit the deck, which made the board wayyy more usable as a commuter board.
The board for me is still just too heavy, the dual motor setup and 10s2p battery adds some decent weight to the board. So I’m planning on trying a single motor (6374 190kv) instead of the dual, to see how that helps with the weight.
Any further suggestions or anyone else have their own commuter boards and ideas???
