If you have ever considered building your very own DIY electric skateboard you may be interested in a new Kickstarter campaign for the Hummie hub motors. Watch the video below to learn more about the high quality skateboard hub motors which are now available to back via Kickstarter with earlybird pledges available from $80 and worldwide delivery expected to take place during October 2019.
“These motors have been race tested in the California Outlaw Series Races and through the Evolve K1 Races. Time and time again they prove to be the most powerful, agile, and grippy urethane hub motors ever made. With 10,000 watts of power in 4wd, more than double any other board ever on kickstarter and 0-30mph in 1.9 seconds, you will be a threat in every race.”
“Most associate hub motors with a poor quality riding experience. We experience no bearing rattles, no vibrations from mild road imperfections, and no noise. Hear it in the video. You will only hear the wind. You will feel like you’re riding on a cloud. This is thanks to our partnership with ABEC11 for the non motor wheels and Aend industries for custom made heat resistant motor tires, which are of the best polyurethane in the world and also produced right here in the USA. These are not low quality wheels that are hard as a rock with no rebound. These are plush, soft to the touch, high rebound, industry leading 78a duro tires. Not only do we use the best polyurethanes, we also have a 12-15mm thick hub tires, more than any other urethane hub motor on the market. They are only 83mm, but they feel like 97mm regular wheels in ride quality with the wide 80mm contact patch.”
