What deck is best for building your own electric skateboard?


#126

Never Summer is certainly the best…


#127

What do you guys think of a pintail being used as a eboard deck.


#128

It’s a matter of preference. Just keep in mind that a pintail deck won’t have the same wheel clearance as a freeride deck… so you have to use risers!


#129

I use atleast a 1/8 riser on all my decks to dampen the road vibration


#130

it might need a special box. Maybe one shaped like guts.


#131

In my experience, you’re going to need a 1/4 riser + stiff bushings if using 83-90mm wheels.


#132

im using otang kegels that are 80mm


#134

Hot damn! :heart_eyes:

I think your post is very knowledgeable and is a good place to start for new skaters! Especially your insight when it comes to flex impacting performance at higher speeds. As a manufacturer for downhill skateboards, managing or eliminating flex while ensuring a smooth, responsive and stable ride has been a focus of my work as a board maker thus far.

Since you mentioned the future of e-sk8 decks, especially customs, I’d also like to take this chance to link my website. I’ve been recently looking to make my first e-sk8 deck and I think that my technology would make a very good fit without many tweaks! We have our own unique deck construction, and some new vibration normalizing truck mounts and I’ll even have the ability to design and pour my own wheel and cores in house! We can do custom or commissioned graphics, and we have material options with an affordable and durable standard construction at around $100, and a more lightweight and premium construction as well!

Concave is definitely an important consideration when attaching your enclosure, so I think I’d like to make a dedicated mould with a generally more mellow concave than what I currently have available. I think that will work to a riders advantage in terms of comfort, although I think our current pressed in wheel wells would be perfect here as well.

Nice! If I could suggest to include side-view photos of decks. I won’t buy any deck without a side photo, like edge-on. I want to see the tail and if the nose is not raised and any concave and all the stuffs

your website doesn’t load dude… gateway 504 error
your service through shovl is too slow to load

I’m trying to build an electric skateboard and am choosing a board to use and wheels
I have a few already I can use but not sure if I should buy a different one

  1. a 34" Santa cruz board with a kick tail, worried that it would be hard to ride at fast speeds(20+ mph)
  2. 40" flexible fiberglass long board, probably to bendy
  3. 38" concave wooden long board, not that flexible
    like the idea on an all terrain drop deck with mbs all terrain long board wheels

If you are still looking for a deck , i’ve bought this one and love it.It’s on sale for the moment. It has a nice mini drop that locks your feet pretty well:

I didn’t like the graphics so i wrapped the deck with some cheap carbon film:


#140

Thx but I’ve decided on trying to make my own


#141

Make sure you use the proper wood and glue it will prevent delaming. Do you have a press for it as you will need one?


#142

I must have been having some intermittent website outage, but if you have the time to check us out again, we’d appreciate the look!

Hi,

I can’t seem to be able to create a new post, but this place seems to be as good a place as it could be. I have ordered the earthwing superglider v-lam to go with the pro 2 kit from diyelectricskateboard (@torqueboards) https://diyelectricskateboard.com/collections/electric-skateboard-conversion-kit/products/pro2-electric-skateboard-conversion-kit

I’m a little worried about the flex (I’m 85kg) and was wondering if anyone had experience with that deck. It is worth noting that I live in the UK.
