Oh gosh. I built this several months ago so this list is mostly from memory, but I’ll do my best. Also bear in mind that my experience with DIYeBoard has been a good one. I haven't had any issues with my ESC or battery. Zero issues with voltage sag or the controller cutting out. I have seen a few reports that these are common issues, but I haven't experienced them. I'm also listing the prices I paid for these items. I don't know if these prices have changed recently so take that into consideration.

Deck – Rimmable 42in top mount complete board (for replacement wheels and bearings) - $35

Battery and ESC – 10s5p kit from DIYeBoard - $220

Motors – 170kv N5055’s from DIYeBoard – 2x $40

Gearing – Gears and Pulley kit from DIYeBoard - $25

Trucks – Caliber 2 (black) - $30 free ship

Wheels – Cal 7 97mm 78A (flywheel hub) - $26 free ship (yes this pricing is correct and yes these wheels are amazing)

Mounts – Boardnamics – approx. $50 shipping included

Grip –Camo Black Diamond griptape – $9.95


Speed – 32mph on flat ground with 210lb rider. Could go faster but I wasn't willing to push it without a helmet or other protection.

Range – Unknown I normally get tired before it dies. My estimate is around 15-20miles on speed mode 2 full throttle

Approximate total = $500 USD (NOT including shipping costs for DIYeBoard items all Amazon items were shipped for free)

Okay so I have a lot of questions... I'm sorry in advance, I'm really new to this.

I live in a fairly hilly town so power is a must. I'm looking for a dual motor setup with at least a 10-12 mile range. Some parts I picked already are listed below. All Except the trucks are subject to change. I'm going for a white primary with gold accents theme.

If I were to set up a dual motor board
• Which motor mount should I buy?
• Is this MOTOR the best one on the market for its price right now? I'm looking for crazy power! :)
• Which motor pulley do I need for a dual motor setup?
• What electronics do I need to run this setup?
• Where can I find a frame to hold the 18650's and electronics?
• How do you wire these things? I'm honestly just shooting in the dark here...

I already have the board , bearings , remote , and trucks picked out.

If you have any suggestions, please please feel free to add them.
I feel like I'm missing something here...

I own a 3D printer so if there are any extra casings that I need I can just print it.

I appreciate all your help!

Willing to provide compensation or barter for someone to source all these parts and manuals for me

This one is white color only, but is built like a tank and has 4 different power levels for solid beam and blinking. It used to be double the price but recently dropped to $10, which is a great deal. Pretty commonly used by the NYC crew here and holds up very well on bumps and such, highly recommended.

I use two on my pack (front and back, with red tape over the rear).

u/Yomiel94 · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

I'm no expert, but I'd buy an inexpensive hub wheel board for that. I use one for my commute and it's great not needing to tension the belt or worry about smacking the motor mount on something.

You should probably check out the replacement motor costs first though, so you know what you're looking at when something does fail.

Blitzart used to sell a dual motor board for $400 that was really solid, and easy to upgrade/repair, but it looks like they only sell a single motor variant now. Here's a link:

I'd still consider it, however, because the enclosure is very simple and easy to remove, and you can swap the ESC and switch to a belt-driven setup in the future (a friend has done this and it works great).

I’ve literally had a rep at shredlights tell me that the red casing for shredlights were particularly bad at holding the rear lights in place. I’ve had multiple people loose their rear lights in group rides.

Trust me we were using them correctly, for the most part it doesn’t matter since they’ll replace them for free but the trouble of waiting for new lights and it being too weak to show much more then two or three feet in front of you just makes it not worth re buying in my personal experience.

Considering there are over 40,000 results for bike lights on amazon I find it unlikely that you’ve tried them all lmao

And yes shredlights do allow for people to see you from a distance, but that’s the bare minimum that they should be doing. I feel bad hearing about people buying shred lights to increase their visibility in night rides when it barely does that.

Here is an example of a light that is far stronger than shredlights that I managed to fit on my boosted board and evolve cerbon gt without issues:

u/Kaneis1 · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

I use this but to be honest, it's kind of long and sticks out a bit. This one would probably work as well.

Tornado is a solid brand. They're strong enough to hold them up, and you can kind of spread them out a bit too if they don't quite fit on your trucks.

u/Sylar_Durden · 2 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

Don't worry about heat. Conformal coating isn't going to insulate anything so much it over-heats. Unless you put on like 20 coats of the stuff maybe.

By the way, you should probably use silicone conformal coating instead of acrylic. It's a little more durable, and not quite as nasty to work on. Personally I prefer the liquid over aerosol. It's much easier to make sure you get everything coated well, and the fumes aren't quite as bad.

u/skeeterou · 2 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

I have this one. It's great, just wish it had a little more room. It's really comfortable.

u/ProBaddiE · 2 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

You can use a guitar stand to prop it up in a corner. I got one from Amazon for around 8 bucks, although it seems to have gotten a bit more expensive. Fit my Ownboard W1 without doing anything to the stand itself. I also think it's a pretty awesome way to display your board at the same time :D.

u/chhappy7 · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

Wow the price soared on the one I used. I'm using this one for my Inboard that is 15~16 lbs with battery in. NO sign of tipping over. I think Koowheel is also ~16 lbs so should work fine. I got mine for ~10 bucks, but it's soared since then. But really, any other ones should work fine too and if it doesn't just return say it can't support your instrument. XD

  • 2x 6374 180kv motors

  • MBS all-terrain wheels

  • 2x pulley kit (36:13)

  • 2x motor mounts

  • Caliber II Trucks (I have wider Torqueboard 218 trucks coming so I can mount both motors inside)

  • Antispark switch

  • FSESC 200A

  • 2x 6s 6000mAh Lipos

  • Deck from a longboard I bought like 4 years ago

  • Both enclosures were 3d printed with ProtoPasta carbon fiber and TPU washers that vary in thickness to compensate for the contours of the board (my own design).

  • bearings

  • Dual charger

  • other various screws, nuts, wires, connectors, solder, etc

    Total Cost: Approx. $1200

    Additional notes:

  • This was my first time using this brand of carbon fiber filament and I have to say its insanely strong, knocking on the back of the case, which is only 5mm thick, feels like knocking on a brick wall, its nothing like any filament i've ever used before and prints surprisingly well but will destroy brass nozzles (which cost pennies anyways).

  • I've gotten it up to 26mph so far, with plenty of throttle left to go (I'd honestly say I didn't hit over 50% throttle). It's been about 2 years since I've rode my longboard, and I've only tried a friends boosted board once about a year ago, so I still need to build up to going fast. A more experienced rider got it up to 29mph and said he still had throttle to spare. So so far no one has been willing to top it off, I'll report back once I get some numbers. I will say that it accelerates faster than most if not all brand name boards.

  • Yes I am aware that I fucked up my rear motor, I have since fixed the issue... Whoops.
u/Neuroplastic_Grunt · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

Also found some awesome lights for safety- I have seen Serfas, and decided against; these have them beat on price and lumens by far. Agree a headlamp or flashlight makes the most sense for visibility though.

u/JetskiMark · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

Interesting design. That is a concept that I never even thought of.

It has positive reviews on Amazon.

u/Aarkh · 2 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

Pads I've really liked these for the value.


I feel like hips are under talked about. After my first fall I got these. My hips were the most bruised up part. Even months later I can feel it.

u/armin22222 · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

I've got this set. Nothing fancy, just very comfortable and gives me all the protection I need :)

u/Silentowns · 3 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

You are going to want to do this with the rubber grommets im telling you now. Seems multiple people have had that problem, and it would b e best for you to do it right from the beginning. these are the approximate size you want, and super glue them to the bottom of the esc bolts. Unless you bought the 10s2p kit i dont think this applies. but for the 10s5p it does for sure.

u/Darkzed1 · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

They fit pretty tight I have not had them fall off or wear out yet and I have had them for about a week and I got them from amazon

u/Laxtorre · 2 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

Sits fine just have to invert the board to fit, or else the kick tail hits the floor.

Top Stage Pro Universal Guitar Stand

u/karlsmission · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

The specific one I bought is not currently available. This one looks to be the closest: but with a more powerful motor and bigger battery.

u/Secret_Squirrels · 2 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

That's fair man. THat's how I feel too. Not many people skate in teh rain, but I live in the bay and that's just not an option. Oh... if you're going off-brand I'd recommend that you coat all of your componenets with conformal coating. It's an electronics waterproofing product. Here is a linkl:

u/r6guy · 2 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

You'd look awfully out of place with those work gloves on... I tried riding with my motorcycle gloves once, but they were too bulky to work the trigger comfortably (and they aren't even bulky gloves.) I'm sure you'd have the same issue with the leather ones. Leather gloves, in my experience, are very constricting. Maybe get a pair of wrist guards with the plastic protective part for the palm.

I got this cheap set of pads when I was starting out, and the wrist guards kept me for ripping my hands up when I discovered what wheel bite was.

Edit: I forgot to mention.. they may look silly (or you might think they do), but they work well. They allow you to work a remote reasonably well, and keep you from having to deal with the pain of scraped hands and broken wrists.

u/sixonedelta · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

Lol on amazon the same lights are so much cheaper Serfas CP-R4 90/35 Lumen Thunderbolt Headlight/Taillight Combo One Size

u/ratnihsa · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

Top Stage Pro Universal Guitar Stand 10 bucks you just bend the arms to fit the board.

u/Dalek5961 · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

I use these Sefras Lights on my trucks. Theyre quite popular [And bright as hell]with e-boards. And I'm going to get reflective tape for helmet (small strips) because the belt can be quite annoying with my normal clothing.

u/Infinator10 · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

The Overade Plixi folds to about half the size of a normal helmet, but is only available in small to medium sizes, also using velcro pads for a custom fit.

u/pr0tosynnerg · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

I also have a metroboard slim 41"/15mile on order. Hoping to get some input from others on cases for flight travel. I am looking at this boostedboard case here.

Any other suggestions?

u/aketabi · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

I decided to hang my boards on hooks mounted to the wall. If anyone is interested, I suggest these hooks. You just need 1 per board and they cost $7: Tornado Extended U-hook

u/EdgarAllanPoo69 · 2 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

Longboard Nose Guard by Griffin Boards

I'm fairly certain it's this one.

Any updates from Inboard on your board?

u/blaybreemritz · 2 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

This noise has been driving me nuts ever since I got this kit (90mm hubs). I finally found a solution. These 1/4" hole grommets inserted over the bolt ends of the ESC PCB stack (held in place with a drop of glue) act as very effective vibration dampeners and also help isolate the ESC from coming into contact with the edges of the enclosure compartment. The grommets also lift the ESC above the vent holes so that air contacts the entire bottom surface of the ESC. My board rides silently now (allowing me to focus on the annoyance of creaky rear truck).

u/korict · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

US amazon zealous bearings

edit : They also carry the bushings. There are hard, medium and soft.

u/blax3k · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

I mean, if you're really concerned about it, you can buy one of these

u/bleric · 2 pointsr/ElectricSkateboarding

I just got it from amazon, it took about a month for it to arrive from china.

u/Doctorjames25 · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

MBS 13401 - Black All-Terrain Longboard Wheels - 100mm X 65mm - Black

They use the Abec pulley kit.

u/Atlfalcons284 · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

Yeah, I'm just going to buy new ones. Never heard of Zealous before. So I just toss these ( in the wheels and screw the wheel on and that's it? No need for the inner or out washers or anything??

u/TakeabigL · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

You should try silicon conformal coating. It really works I killed an esc going through puddles and than heard about the stuff from the fpv community and I am able to almost submerge my esc and bms.

u/skiskate · 1 pointr/ElectricSkateboarding

First board I rode was this crappy $250 BLITZART Huracane. Back then I thought it was incredible, and I knew I wanted to buy one for myself.

I decided to go all in and bought a $1600 Boosted Stealth. My expectations were shattered. I've put over 1250 miles on mine in the past 7 months.

But the Stealth just isn't powerful enough for me, so I just bought a $2650 XL 2.0 which should be here in a few weeks.

My absolute biggest advice is WEAR YOUR HELMET.


I had been longboarding for 8 years before I bought my first electric skateboard, and learning how to fall properly can literally save your life.

I've only taken one fall at 25mph (due to an incompetent driver) and I came out with only a few scratches. If you don't have the ability to properly fall at your boards top speed, a helmet can be the difference between life and death.
