First Electric ELOS Skateboard In America

Reddit user b264 and I have been in a lust race for an electric ELOS.

He won.

Click = big

He transplanted everything from an unknown brand of electric skateboard he had sent over from Taiwan …

Click = big

Click = big

Two interesting bits from him:

I built it as a rear-wheel drive with the pointy end in the front

But then I rode it and it rides much better in reverse, with the pointy end in the back

That’s not the first time I’ve head of a hub motor that actually goes better in reverse!


The axles are 213mm [8.38583″] long. The trucks the elos came with are what you call “seven inch trucks” but these are smaller than that. I could not fit the elos in my backpack bacause the wheels were too wide. This electrified one fits in my REGULAR, NORMAL small backpack. No special backpack required…

elos came with 245mm axles [9.64567″]


I will catch up … some day. *shakes fist*
