I demo’d the Boosted dual plus board for a week and loved it. In the end, however, I wanted a board that was more customizable (acceleration, top speed) and with a kick tail. The new carbon fiber deck from Enertion as a complete board looks perfect and same price $1500 usd.
A few questions, if anyone can answer.
-Boosted boards automatically slows down when the motors start overheating… i ran into this problem once when I was riding through hills. Will the VESC that comes with the Enertion do this?
-Boosted also says they have “traction control”, where if one of the dual motors detects slippage or loss of traction, it slows down so as not to jolt the rider when it regains traction. I noticed on sharp turns at full speed I was getting a bit of wheel slippage that freaked me out. Does the Enertion have this feature or can I program it somehow? Can I program each VESC separately so if one motor is slipping the other one can still run?
-Boosted’s Dual Plus in pro mode had great acceleration, will I be able to program Enertion’s to replicate that acceleration? What’s the top speed of Enertion? I know boosted dual plus in pro top speed is 20mph? My goal is to go 30mph/ 48km/h. Are the Dual 190KV R-SPEC motors the come with Enertion equivalent/ superior to Boosted’s?
What is the weight of Enertion’s complete build? With added range I assume comes added battery weight with Enertion.
Finally, what components are likely to break if I ride this every day to work? Should I go ahead and order extra xyz? ie belts? Do you think it comes with extra belts or different pulley’s so I can customize torque vs top speed… or can you choose the one? For 30mph/ 48kmh top speed I assume I can just use the 13t one so i can maximize torque…
Thanks for the help. I was literally going to start asking for recommendations on individual component parts… but then i saw Enertion’s ready-to-ride option. (Oh, I had one post on this forum before and after demoing Boosted I realized how bad of an idea trying to put Carver C-7 or Carver Cx trucks on an electric board is… at 20mph you don’t want maneuverable trucks).
