Electric board with Multiple Deck Choice
- 29th March 2017
Multiple Deck Choice for our electric board
The Max-Eboard has ‘bolt-on’ design which means all of the components attach to the deck and can be removed with just a few bolts. So if you fancy changing your deck for a carbon upgrade, new shape and so on, it’s very simple. Most electric board companies are moving towards integrated deck batteries. Although these look sleek and cool they have a couple of downsides. You can’t change the deck, you have a rigid ride and its often a heavier design. With the Max-Eboard you can have the choice of all of the following style deck shapes. We do plan to introduce more as well as supply templates to allow DIY’ers to modify their own decks.
- Symmetrical shape and stance for a balanced center of gravity to increase the ability to weight the deck through turns for better control.
- Aggressive concave design for easy carving and great control.
- Square nose and tail design.
- Symmetrical shape.
- Minimal Concave. Perfect for cruising and shredding the beach front.
- Symmetrical shape.
- The side cuts allow for decreased torsional stiffness between the feet to exploit the board’s torsional energy to allow for greater nuances in the turning radius.
Carbon Deck – something a bit special
Carbon has great tensile strength so makes great bikes, wings and boards. However is it is smashed in to a wall, curb or tree it shatters very easily. This is why a full carbon electric board is useless and expensive to repair/ bodge back to life.
For this reason only our lower layer is carbon with the remainder as flexible and strong canadian maple fused under 8 tons of pressure to a carbon fibre stack. Mono-directional carbon fibre filaments combine with 12k Carbon fibre tweel. (12k is basically the size of the ‘mesh’ used to weave the carbon fibre tweal.) Many use a much thinner and weaker +cheaper tweel.
The carbon fibre filament strengthens the electric skateboard deck in key areas around the toe and truck mount. We blacked out the edges of the maple for a nightrider look but didn’t want to curl the carbon fibre around the edges. Once bent the carbon is no longer flexible and can dent and permanently fold like some of you reading will have heard about other electric skateboard companies.
The carbon fibre layer knocks 300g of weight off the deck and provides superior longitudinal and torsional stiffness for a responsive but still flexible deck. Making an all round awesome electric skateboard.
The new deck looks absolutely stunning with a mirror finish. The resin is set to dry in position and needs no after polishing, just a few coats of lacquer to give a stunning mirror finish. There’s no-one else out there making this kind of carbon electric board.
