A team of skateboarders based in Los Angeles California have created a new electric longboard and skateboard in the form of the CARVON range
Consisting of both the CARVON EVO and REVO 4WD, skateboard and longboard, the new electric boards have been designed to be the fastest and best performing E-boards currently available.
Our new CARVON V3 Dual Direct Drive Motors are not hub motors. They are not positioned inside the wheels. They are positioned next to the wheels, so that the whole structure of the wheel is maintained. Experience has taught us that having full and thick urethane wheels is better in terms of the ride quality and long-term durability of the motors. Just say “NO” to thin urethane!
The CARVON X Motor is a Single motor that drives two wheels. It’s a geared-down setup that uses belts to multiply the torque output of the motor. But unlike other belt drives, the CARVON X incorporates one-way bearings so that the wheels can spin faster than the motor’s output. This allows for the outside wheel to turn faster than the inside wheel, which what happens when you turn or carve. The CARVON X is combined with Dual V3 Motors for the REVO 4WD setup.
The CARVON deck will be a drop-down for that low-to-the-ground riding feel. It will have carbon fiber layers on the routed bottom to maintain stiffness along the electronics part of the deck. This will ensure that the electrical connections remain solid and does not break off from bending and flexing of the deck. Despite of the stiffness around the electronics area, the whole deck will still be comfortable to ride. This simple approach will help us finish the deck faster so that we can deliver them to you ASAP!
