Hi, guys, let’s move on to skateboarding, this time we’ll take a look at YECOO GTS. It comes with a price tag of $699, of course, this is just the pricing. They are doing activities recently, and they have a 10% discount coupon to get. Which is pretty mid- and high-end in terms of performance. It’s worth noting, GTS is also a belt-driven electric skateboard, shaft and mute motor. The size is about 38 in (L), 12.2 in (W), 7.08 in (H), and the weight is about 19 pounds. Now, let’s analyze its performance and design.
1. Deck Design
Get a skateboard first to see the board, is said to be the well-selected Canadian Maple, 8 layers of Canadian Maple with great toughness can bear a weight of 330lbs. Layout with griptape is very rough, no handle design, so be careful not to hurt your hand, but this pattern is really nice, I appreciate the skateboard griptape pattern. A scorpion that was yellow with white is in the center, the lines of the whole board is a abstract scorpion, it is not hard to see.
There are two led tubes on both sides of the back of deck, which can glitter during driving.
It has the same concave design as the GT, progressive, which is stable to ride and easy to turn.
The real thing about this skateboard is its wheels, that is, two sets of wheels – the main recommendation of YECOO, With dual purpose. YECOO give a set of replacement wheels, it is 6 in tire for all-terrain. The seller sent me a set of replacement wheels，6-inch off-road wheel is made of non-inflatable silicone tires, so you do not need to worry about puncture and repair, and soft silica gel material feels comfortable for cycling. I tried it out and it was- riding comfortable. With dual purpose, Yecoo GT2 is called urban off-road. The 83mm PU wheel is used on street, while the 6-inch off-road wheel is used on unsurfaced road, the lawn, hilly road and mountain road. We can switch the wheels quiklly within two minutes.
GTS uses a seal bottom case design，the controller box and the battery box are packed together, what’s more, two cool light tubes equipped on the battery box will change their direction and speed as the skateboard rides. Dual 1000 watts motor provides strong power and high speed. And motor external, do not directly contact the ground, no wear of course. Comes with high torque, 1:3 deceleration ratio, supporting strong power.
YECOO has upgraded their third-generation truck, made of al-alloy material, therefore the truck is convenient to disassemble and reassemble. Belt tightness is easy to adjust, and the belt noise effect is good, but it is easy to wear out over time.
This remote control can be used to drive in both directions, and it is very sensitive to start. You should be careful when braking, because it brakes suddenly. By the way, the skateboard starts automatically after a few seconds when you roll it’s power wheels without turning the board on. If you forget to turn it off, don’t worry, it will turn off automatically.
So, let’s look at some of the other specs.
- Top speed: Low mode: Up to 12 mph(20km/h); Middle mode: Up to 18 mph(30km/h); High mode: Up to 25 mph(40km/h)
