@Randyc1: just an illusion. We will assure that the Carver will have tons of wheel options.
We will offer three different 7" pneumatic tires, a 6" pneumatic tire, the 125mm Urethane tire in different hardnesses and the regular 83 and 90mm street wheels. This way the carver will become the most versatile board you can imagine.
The battery compartment is made from the same material as the deck, super strong and really really protective - Not just an ABS plastic cover to keep the dirt and moisture away.
