it weighs more now because he has this crazy foam topper on it but yeah. 24 and some decimals before it shipped.
hubs just move some of the metal from outside to the inside. I’d like to see a weight comparison of hubs vs motors with mounts bolted onto them.
The fucking raptor 2, a 10S4P with a slim sexy box, weighs just as much as my 12S5P base model scarlets which are rear wheel belt drive at over 3000 watts per motor and are right in the 21-22 pound zone.
They just keep adding steel into those wheels. Looks lighter, but isn’t. They’re getting some real power in there finally, but trading lightweight aluminum outside the wheel for heavy ass steel inside the wheel isn’t going to reduce weight. I doubt that’s really the objective at this point though. Right now they’re still just trying to surpass belts in power-to-the-street and flexibility.
also i’d like to point out that batteries, in the grand scope of the entire board’s weight, aren’t the biggest contributor. Cells don’t weigh much.
