Performance

  • Max Speed – 22mph : For a skateboard with all-terrain capabilities,this is a generous amount of speed. Keep in mind that you will be reaching 22mph on flat smooth surfaces. When riding through a rougher surface the max speed will fluctuate. This board will get you from 0-15mph in just 3.5 seconds. 
  • Range– 10 miles : A riding range of 10 miles is also very impressive, considering how much this board weighs. A typically rider would only need to charge this board once a week.The max range is also dependent on the weight of the rider. 
  • Power– A powerful 1600 watt dual motor. This powerful motor is what really separates the  MotoTec All-Road Electric Skateboard from other boards on the market. Each of the motors is pumping out 800watts of power. The dual motor setup prevents the board from twisting during acceleration. Single motor electric skateboard often suffer from “single-wheel spin”.  
  • Battery– The  MotoTec  Electric Skateboard has 36 volt that charges from empty to full in about 4 hours. It would be great if this board would charge in under 3 hours but it’s not a deal breaker.

  • Wheels – 10 inch air filled tires. The 10 inch ties are specifically designed to handle rough surfaces 10 inches will have you pretty high off of the ground but this is necessary for absorbing all of the bumps that you will be encounterig.
