Its time for a better way to order your custom electric skateboard. I built this contraption so that people could choose the most commonly configured components and then just let me worry about the building. Not only does this thing let the customer become more involved in the building and decision making processes, it also provides total transparency of the process cost while managing expectations in both cost and performance.  

I'm hoping to get this finished up sometime very soon and get it integrated into my ordering and building process. In the mean time, enjoy playing with it.

choose your deck

Select one of our three house deck shapes made with our distinct soft-dome w-concave profile. Each deck is pressed and cut to order in our shop.

bearings and wheels

Choose the right wheels and bearings for you. Top speed freaks may want ceramic bearings and taller wheels, while commuters and casual riders may want shorter wheels and bones reds.

wheel pulleys

Taller pulleys put more torque down on the road, while smaller ones have a less torquey start but have a higher top end speed. Try to achieve the balance that meets your needs.

select power level

More watt hours means more range at higher speeds, but you may not need all that power for commuting or weekend rides and maybe you like to save a buck or two. Options are good.

brains for the brawn

Choose the ESC that's right for you. If you're more of a casual rider, the AXLE can save you a buck and still deliver the polished feel you're looking for. If you know you're going to be pushing the limits of your board on a regular basis, get the VESC-X.

build summary

* Top speed shown here is an estimate based on a 150 to 160 pound rider. Calculations were made using nominal battery voltages, motor kv, pulley ratios, wheel height, and an 80% efficiancy. This may or may not reflect real world performance for riders outside of that weight range.

** Range is an estimate based on total watt hours of the pack and assumes a rider weight of 150 to 160 pounds and a travel speed of 18-20mph on mostly flat terrin with some hills. Range is directly affected by rider weight, speed, and terrain.
