Evolve’s new GTR Series electric skateboards use bendy batteries for tighter turning

Evolve has plenty of fans thanks to its line of excellent electrified longboards, and the latest addition announced today appears to be another solid step forward for a company not afraid to break the mold. The newly unveiled GTR Series features all the hallmarks that made its predecessors so popular, but with some notable upgrades spearheaded by a new battery design with plenty of give.

As was the case with Evolve’s previous GT Series, the new GTR line centers on what is essentially the same powertrain technology, using twin 1,500-W motors hooked up to the rear wheels. This is applied to two different types of boards, each with two options for wheel setups.

The Bamboo GTR carries the nostalgic aesthetic of old-school longboard design with an exposed timber finish and three-ply bamboo and two-ply fiberglass sandwiched in between. The Carbon GTR, meanwhile, is made from 100 percent carbon fiber with a black matte finish.

The battery is packed away neatly inside a compartment beneath the deck and, as with previous designs, doesn’t protrude too much from the underside. As we’ve experienced in our earlier tests of Evolve’s skateboards, this makes a huge difference when trying to carry the thing under your arm when on foot.

What’s different this time around, however, is that rather than being flat-packed and arranged longways like a series of hardcover books, the battery pack actually flexes, to degrees far greater than you’d ever need from a longboard. This new four-piece battery design should allow for tighter control when turning, and involves no wires connecting the individual packs, making for a neater and safer design on the inside as well

The range offered by Evolve’s electric skateboards has always been a huge strength and nothing changes with the new GTR Series. Like the previous GT Series, the distance the boards will travel on each charge will depend on the wheels that are attached, and these can be swapped out easily enough with the included Y-shaped skate tool.

The 97-mm (3.8-in) urethane street wheels will allow both the Carbon and Bamboo GTR boards to cover 50 km (31 mi) on each charge, while the 178-mm (7-in) pneumatic tires built for rougher terrain will allow for 30 km (18 mi) of travel. Top speed, meanwhile, is listed as 42 km/h (26 mph) for the street setup and 36 km/h (22 mph) for the all-terrain setup.

Both boards are driven by Evolve’s joystick-based Bluetooth controller, which displays battery levels and allows riders to choose from ECO mode, which preserves power and has a friendlier acceleration curve, and PRO mode, which prioritizes power and, well, has a less friendly acceleration curve.

Evolve is offering the Bamboo GTR for a price of AU$1,899 (US$1,320) and the Carbon GTR for $1,999 (US$1,390), with shipping to kick off in the first week of June. You can see the new boards in action in the video below.

Enertion announced production delay for FOCBOX Unity

Australian electric skateboard brand Enertion, known for the Raptor series has announced that there will be a delay for their Unity’s.


Enertion’s statement:
We know delays are the LAST thing you want to hear about when you’re hanging out to receive the latest tech from us – but when we find ways to improve our products, we want you to benefit immediately.

Our engineers have been busy investigating several reported faults experienced by our DIY-users who used the Unity with higher-powered motors and batteries.

We have already released a firmware update to address these issues and after additional testing and feedback from our users, have determined that the firmware patch successfully solved the issue. During this process, we also identified several ways in which our test jigs could be improved to more stringently test every unit we ship out. This testing requires a complete redesign of our custom jig equipment at a component-based level, which is complex, and needs time to be developed and implemented.

Although our production batch was so close to completion, we needed to send each Unity back through our product test line a second time in order to ensure that these updates could be applied. While this does cut in to our delivery timeline, we are determined to continue to deliver the most reliable and easy-to-use motor controller available today.

If you haven’t received your tracking information for your Unity yet, you can be assured that you will be receiving the latest revision already.


BMW to launch E-Scooter in Autumn 2019

If you’re a die-hard BMW fan, you’re likely looking for news on some new fire spitting BMW, like the upcoming M8 or maybe even the X5 M. If that’s the case, this article might not be for you. That’s because it’s about… a scooter. The BMW E-Scooter to be exact and it’s the brand’s latest attempt at personal urban electric mobility. Not exactly a fire spitting Bimmer, is it?

Admittedly, it’s actually a pretty cool scooter. The BMW E-Scooter isn’t the brand’s first electric scooter but it is its first to be co-developed with Micro (creator of the Micro Scooter). It features a 150-watt motor and lithium-ion battery, which are tucked into the footplate and rear wheel. Combined, they provide 12 km (7.5 miles) range and a top speed of 20 km/h (12 mph).


The German E-mobility Laws need to be changed before it's too late!


This is not just another open letter. We have discussed a lot lately about the legality of Personal Light Electric Vehicles in Germany and we will not stop ring the bell about this issue until things change. It now seems like they are finally releasing the law and in all it's details but it seems like it will be a BIG BUMMER to use e-skaters, only PLEVs with a handle will get legalized from what certain sources are saying. This just breaks our e-hearts. So what should we do? Put handlebars on our boards? Move to Sweden? No, we's rather keep up the fight support motivated people like Christian Keller, who wrote an open letter asking the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure to reconsider rethinking the planned regulation as it currently stands. If we want change, then we need to spread the word and create awareness. So let's spread the word and make the lawmakers change the details to include e-skates before it's too late for us in Germany!'s-too-late/
