What determine the limit of speed?
The max speed of the fastest electric skateboard is determined by a number of factors. For example, the weight of the rider, the power of the motor, the power output of the battery, ESC, transmission, and wheel size. And of course, most importantly, the weight of the rider and the power of the engine. A high-speed electronic skateboard requires special attention to detail and quality in production. At high speeds, many components of the electronic skateboard may get high temperatures and violent vibrations in use. Having a higher-speed electric skateboard requires having a better truck to avoid the speed swing. Obviously, they also need reliable brakes! As we would expect, all of these factors will lead to a corresponding increase in prices, so if you want to buy a faster electric skateboard, you may have to budget well.
The following is the analysis of the factors affecting the skateboard speed.
- Rider’s weight: There is no doubt that the bigger and the heavier a rider is, the slower an e-board will be. This means that large and heavy rider weights will not get your top speed presented in the tables.
- Motor power: In order for our electric skateboard to have a higher speed, it must have a powerful motor. The power of the motor determines the acceleration of the electric skateboard, thus increasing the speed of the skateboard. If you want a fastest electric skateboard, then you need to take a powerful motor.
- Battery power output: If the battery does not have the same enough power output, even a powerful motor is useless. The motor can only provide and transmit the same amount of power as the battery. So you need an electric skateboard with good enough batteries.
- ESC (Electric speed controller): ESC is an electronic component and mechanism that regulates the drive and speed of motors. Better ESC provides higher power, so a fast electronic board often needs a good ESC that has the ability to optimize the top speed of your electric skateboard.
Wheel size: Smaller wheels have lower top speeds, but faster acceleration and more torque. Conversely, bigger wheels mean your board has a higher top speed but leads to slower acceleration and less torque. Off-road or all-terrain wheels will add a lot of riding comfort and ease the discomfort brought by vibration, but there is also a drop-in top speed and a significantly lower range because of friction and drag.
If you are riding your fastest electric skateboard, be safe!
High speed can be tempting, but it can also be dangerous. Be sure to wear a helmet when riding a motorized skateboard. Don’t excessive acceleration, ride within your skill level.
