Does anyone have experience with the 90mm Maytech hub motors as well as the DIYeboard 90mm hub motors?
Is one appreciably better in terms of performance or durability than the other?



i’m missing a “6.1 mounting your enclosure”!


I think the diyeboard 90mm hubs perform a bit better, while the maytech hubs are more durable (thicker urethane).


Just saw a video of your board. Looks very nice and stealth but those hub wheel caps are really ugly.


It’s a wiki you can add info :slight_smile:

Hi!! I’m new to this website. Is there anyone out here from Singapore who have built their own electronic skateboard. Would appreciate if he/she could show me the way on building one here in Singapore. Thanks!


Your post has encouraged me to make an electric skateboard for me. It is the best diy I had ever read. Thanks for this information hope I will make it as fast as I can.


Great post, thank you @e.board_solutions for putting this together. Several things that I hadn’t considered.

Heavily depends on your intended riding style.
