The electric skateboard inherits from the skateboard. There are as many kinds of decks as there are kinds of skateboards today. Because of the need to adapt to high-speed driving demand, the mainstream electric skateboards apply the same use of longboard or downhill board, and some other larger boards are more suitable for adding various components. As a skateboard for easy commuting, the cruising board has gradually been popular. Skateboard materials range from traditional laminated maple, bamboo to carbon fiber, aluminum, and other emerging materials.
To meet various needs, people are constantly exploring different materials. Early electric skateboard, to achieve convenience or shock-absorption and other purposes, is more inclined to attach one or two boxes to fill the rest of the components. With the maturity of technology and production, all-in-one board (built-in features) has been gradually accepted.
As part of the connection between the deck and the wheel, the truck plays a vital role in steering control, shock absorption, and stability. Because the primary use of electric skateboard is used for relatively high-speed driving, so the stable and flexible longboard truck and down-hilling truck become the favored choice.
The electric skateboards’ wheels are also inherited from the standard skateboards, which are mainly all kinds of large-sized wheels (PU wheels), down-hilling wheels, etc. With the development of electric skateboard as a new sports branch, wheels adapted to various terrain were gradually developed, such as rubber wheels, inflatable AT wheels, etc.
4.Controller and remote control
The controller is the electric board’s brain, which is a circuit board that provides almost all functions. Manufacturers and players will modify controllers to their own needs, creating their particular features and possibly programming with the remote. The remote control is the controller’s signal input part, using to send out instructions.
The battery is the electric skateboard’s power source, which is generally composed of the battery core or chip and the protection plate. A good battery can ensure the skateboard has enough endurance mileage and excellent power performance. Still, relatively, the battery’s volume and weight have become a significant bottleneck for the development of the electric skateboard. The balance of the battery has become a headache when DIYing and purchasing a finished electric skateboard. Simultaneously, the price of a good battery is not cheap, which accounts a lot for the manufacturer.
6.The power group (mainly the motor)
The application of the motor determines the power status and driving mode of the electric skateboard. The following part will focus on the motor.
According to different needs, there are many extensions of the electric skateboard. There are many various accessories, such as the bound feet and night lighting lights, headlights and taillights; The pursuit of shock absorber suspension devices and bridge pad sandpaper, and so on.
