Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Carbon fiber deck
In order to reduce weight and offer a super strong chassis, the Enertion is made with 100 percent pressure molded carbon fiber.
Pro Good performance
With dual 63 mm R-SPEC motors, the board can reach speeds of up to 45 kph (28 mph) in optimal conditions. It can even accelerate up hills.
Pro Easily replaced parts
Pretty much everything is easily replaced, upgraded, or repaired if there are any issues (the deck is a notable exception). This is because the board uses many standard parts that can be purchased separately. You would need both the tools and skills to do so, but this product is definitely something a savvy rider could build on their own.
Pro Top shelf DIY board you don't have to assemble
This board has one of the best motors on the DIY market in a package that arrives ready to ride. It uses the latest and best open source VESC controllers – favorites among DIYers – which enable you to tinker to your heart’s content. Options like field-oriented control (which results in super silent motors, improved torque, and possibly increased range) are easily available through a USB plugged into the controller. You can research this on VESC to see if it’s for you. Or leave it as-is and just ride.
Con Only available as pre-order
You can only pre-order the device, it is not currently (Oct. 2016) available.
Con Electronics covered by a limited 60-day warranty from the purchase date
The banner on the website claims a 600-day warranty, but this is only for non-electric components. All electrical components are covered by a very short, limited 60-day warranty.
Con Assembled from off the shelf parts
There is a steep learning curve to DIY – and you likely will spend more money than the cost of this assembled board – but if you like to tinker it’s worthwhile to consider building this board yourself. All these parts are easily purchased separately. Purchasing from Enertion is not gaining you much other than assembly.
Con Uses 9mm wide belts as opposed to 15mm belts often found in other dual motor setups
Thinner belts offer less torque and are more likely to slip. They are also more prone to wearing out and breaking sooner than their wider counterparts.
