Hey all, my original single hub build was one of my favorite things I’ve built so far thanks to the ESK8 community. However, the communal experience of riding with others is way more fun so I decided to do another build.
My basic goals were to create a similar, stealthy board, with a slim enclosure, dual hub motors and VESC’s. There’s a constant debate on belt drive vs. hub motors but for me, hubs feel like a solid hybrid between a regular skateboard and an electric. This is mostly due to the stealth and coasting ability. Here’s the breakdown of my parts.
36" Jet Tomahawk Deck
Carvon V2 Dual Hub Motors
Enertion 10S Space Cell
Twin Ollin Board Co. VESCS
TorqueBoards 2.4ghz Mini Remote
RunPlayBack Sulaco V2 Enclosure
I have yet to take it out full throttle but some quick laps around the block were pretty amazing. Other than riding on my friend’s Boosted, this is the first time I’ve felt the power of a dual. I think my 29" single hub build is best suited for my daily commute but for the occasional times that I want to let loose, this dual build is more than enough to get my fix. If you’d like to see a very comprehensive look at this build please check out my article here. Thanks again to the ESK8 community for all the encouragement and support!
