Hub Motors Are Changing The Electric Skateboard Industry

The biggest thing in electric skateboards for 2016 is in-hub motors. Will Hub Motors Redefine The Electric Skateboard Industry Or Is It Just Another Fad?

First we need to break down the two different kinds of motors used for electric skateboards.

Belt Driven electric skateboard motorsbanner979x979belt-motor2

 

Pretty much every board currently on the market with the exception of a few cheap Chinese boards that are filtering in through Alibaba and eBay are all Belt-driven motors. Right now the defacto standard that all other boards are judged against is the Boosted 2000 Dual+ monster. This board has cracked the code and made something that is really fun to ride and still pretty safe. The board is relatively heavy and expensive but from everything I’ve read online, Boosted really stands behind their product. That might change in the future, but for now, they are the yardstick by which other electric skateboard companies are judged.

Advantages of Belt Driven Motors

  • You can get the gearing ratio perfect for your application : Every electric motor has a power range that the motor works best at, the trick is matching that optimum speed with the right sized skateboard wheel for that application (generally under 100mm for street use). Using a belt allows you to do just that.
  • The motor is slightly more sheltered from road debris as it can be moved up and away from the ground.

Disadvantages of Belt Driving Motors

  • You gotta replace the belts : Not that often but if you’re commuting with your eSkateboard every day for extended distances the belts will wear out. If your belt breaks on the road and it’s not a dual drive system then you’re going to be kicking it home.
  • You can’t push it : If the battery dies your board is not going to roll without a whole lot of friction. More than likely you’re going to bend over pick up your board and carry it the rest of the way.
  • On high power boards the motor is still open to the elements : On some of the lower power 24v boards the motor is completely sealed. Every ‘high power’ motors I’ve seen for electric skateboards are almost always open to the elements on one side. This creates the potential for water, debris and metal objects to find their way inside the motor which is going to suck.

 

Direct Drive electric skateboard motors

hub-longboard-motor-pet

The more common electric motors that can be found on most of the more inexpensive electric skateboards in China are Direct Drive (DD) hubs. These motors are out runners (the wheel is what turns) and they have a 1:1 motor ratio. Every time the motor does one revolution, so does the wheel. The new Blink Board by Acton it’s the best example of transition from belt drive to DD Hub

Advantages of DD Hubs

  • Simplicity: The DD design is the simplest you’re going to find. Other than melting the windings or the insulation on the phase wires or overheating there is little you can do to destroy them. Since it is a outrunner there are no brushes to wear down meaning it should run well pretty much forever.
  • Nothing to wear out: No clutches, no gears, no pulleys. The only thing that can fail really is the bearings on the motor. The Manta drive shown above has some pretty beefy bearings on both sides of the wheel so that is pretty unlikely.
  • You can kick it : That’s right the DD design is the ONLY design that allows you to use your skateboard like a normal skateboard when your battery dies. A well designed DD motor will have very minimal cogging effect so it will have little resistance to being pushed.

Disadvantages of DD Hubs

  • Less power than a comparable Geared hub or a Belt drive: Since the geared hubs and the belt driven motors both get to spin a lot faster than the DD motor then you will need MORE watts to make the DD motor feel as powerful as a Geared or belt drive system.
  • Heat dissipation: Since the windings are inside the motor, it is hard for heat to work its way to the outside of the hub unless it has ventilation holes. Such a small motor doing so much work is going to get very hot. There is a chance that this will be an excellent application for ferrofluid cooling, but as far as I know, no one is doing that on a large-scale yet. If you have ventilation holes then you have to worry about water and debris getting inside your motor. Only the least powerful skateboards (less than 400W from China like this one) are sealed, everything else has massive air holes in it for cooling.
  • The Urethane wheel keeps the heat inside the motor.

It seems to me that the biggest problems that skateboard motors face is cooling. While having DD Hub motors might move the industry forward, they still haven’t solved this fundamental problem. What will the future hold for electric skateboards? All I know is that it is an exciting time and that even if the current batch of hub motors fail to live up to users expectations, they are still moving the industry forward in a good way.

The Electric Bike made in Britain

ETT Industries, specialists in electric vehicles, is excited to announce the global launch of RAKER and TRAYSER, industry-leading electric bikes set to revolutionise transport in the urbanenvironment. Designed to provide freedom and excitement to the urban commuter, the eye-catching bikes are now available to pre-order at www.ettindustries.com and will be shipping to customers within 90 days.

RAKER and TRAYSER are unequalled in design, constructed with a patented monocoque frame – the same concept used for F1 cars, but applied in a way previously unseen in bike design.
The result is an exceptional future-proof look; sharp, dynamic and proportioned. Nothing else on the road looks like these bikes. Both have won prestigious IF Design Awards.
CEO and Founder of ETT Industries, New Zealander, Jay Wen, gained his Masters in Automotive Design in Milan and honed his skills in automotive and transportation design with brands including Peugeot and Citroen.

ETT now has offices across three continents, blending highly adept transport design and technology to meet the growing demand for eBikes across the globe, with its own rebellious twist.

RAKER

Breaking convention, RAKER changes the journey from a daily chore to the highlight of the day. A distraction from life’s worries, the bike’s design and drive offer an emotional escape, empowering the rider with a sense of freedom, spirit and rebellion.

Created for those wanting to stand out, RAKER appeals to leaders and trendsetters; those looking to travel with attitude; the adventurers and stylish amongst us.

Perfect for the urban rider, the simplicity of RAKER’s design delivers unparalleled reliability. Electrically powered, using a standard plug socket at the home or office a single five hour charge powers the bike to a range of at least 70 miles, making the journey cleaner, quieter and cheaper, while providing a true sense of escape to an otherwise claustrophobic urban environment.

With speeds up to 28mph, RAKER offers an ideal mental and physical escape in the concrete jungle, energising the driver through its smooth engine, near-silent powertrain. Meeting friends across town,commuting to work, or simply going for a ride to forget life’s worries, RAKER becomes a real pleasure of the day.

Bold in form and design, RAKER is available in four standard colours at launch: Gloss Yellow [Gloss Paint Finish], White [Gloss Paint Finish] , Black [Brushed Aluminium] & Brushed Aluminium.

TRAYSER

trayserhr_4_web

With the commuter in mind, TRAYSER, an electrically assisted pedal cycle [EPAC], shares more than justits frame concept with its bigger brother; it too strives to offer urban freedom and excitement, but at a less extreme pace. Its angular, nimble form begs to be peddled; sharing the load with its rider and bringing ease, comfort and enjoyment to daily travels.

Instantly recognisable, TRAYSER’s profile stands out from the crowd. Sharp, dynamic and wonderfully proportioned, an eBike has never been so desirable, or as fun.

With only a three hour charge, TRAYSER has an amazing 90 mile range, a true enabler of freedom injecting energy into every journey, both in and out of the urban environment. In the spirit of being a true human-electric hybrid vehicle, the more energy put into the pedals, the further the range on a single charge.

With minimal effort, the bike’s electric motor can power the rider up to 15 mph; perfect for rebelling against the turmoil of city traffic, bringing happiness and freedom in equal measures.

With eBike sales increasing significantly year on year and the ‘Tour de France effect’ in full flow, TRAYSER is the antithesis of the dull beige sweeping the industry. With an entirely unique design and unparalleled customisation capabilities, TRAYSER creates smiles with every ride.

TRAYSER is available in four standard colours at launch: Blue [Gloss Paint Finish], White [Gloss Paint Finish], Grey [Gloss Paint Finish] & Dark Grey [Gloss Paint Finish]

Electric Vehicle Classifications & Limitations

RAKER is legally classified as a light electric motorcycle under EU Type Approval L1E. This class limits it,by law, to a maximum speed of 28mph and a motor of 4000W or less. This class requires RAKER, by law,to be registered with the DVLA, to display a licence plate, for the rider to be insured and to wear a DOT approved helmet at all times. A minimum licence consisting of a CBT is required to ride RAKER.

TRAYSER is legally classified as an Electric Pedal Assisted Cycle (EPAC) under EU Directive 2002/24/EC,and conform to EN 15194 specifications. This class limits it, by law, to a maximum speed of 15.5mph and a motor of 250W or less. This class requires TRAYSER, by law, to only be powered while the rider is actively peddling, though requires no registration, insurance, licence or helmet. ETT recommend a bicycle helmet always be worn however.

EU Safety Standard for “The Segway Likes”

At the initiative of France, a voluntary standard will provide safety requirements for personal light electric vehicles (PLEV) in 2016. A framework dealing with their use will also be developed for these new modes of urban mobility; the Segway likes.

After e-bikes, now light electric vehicles (like electric step-scooters) and self-balancing vehicles (including single wheel transporters) are attracting the interest of consumers wanting to try such alternative modes of urban transport. These personal light electric vehicles are however put on the market without prior harmonized test methods based on shared methods. European Directives do indeed exist, but they don’t provide any specific requirements for these machines, nor do they prevent the sale of badly performing or even hazardous products.

Safety and performance guarantees

“Decathlon contacted us as early as 2013 to share this situation with us: the absence of any specific technical standard means that each manufacturer tests its products based on its own criteria,” explains Emmanuel Husson, head of this AFNOR standard development project and secretary of the European working group. “The safety and performance guarantees displayed are therefore of limited value. Decathlon has adopted a proactive approach by opting for standardization. It has agreed to share its test protocol as a basis for the work on the future European standard.”

Anticipating regulation

The safety standards development enables market players, in all their diversity, to adopt a self-regulation approach. With this voluntary standard, manufacturers are at the forefront of regulatory initiatives. Honda (via its Belgian subsidiary), Toyota (through its French presence), Egret (Germany), L-Trott (France) and Trikke (Netherlands) have properly understood this and are actively involved in the work. Representatives of public authorities (including the DGCCRF for France – Directorate General for Competition Policy, Consumer Affairs and Fraud Control) and consumers (ANEC) are also present. “These entities have very high safety requirements,” adds Emmanuel Husson.

Product safety and usage conditions

The future European standard will cover light electric vehicles without seats and self-balancing vehicles, with or without seats, intended primarily for the transportation of one person in the urban environment. This standard excludes applications coming under the health field (covered by EN ISO 13482).

A technical part will propose methods for testing the vehicle’s mechanical and electrical components. Tests on brakes, tires, battery, handlebar, the robustness of the footrest, etc. All aspects of the vehicle will be covered to ensure a minimum safety level and limit main hazards.

In and excluded

Regarding the use, the voluntary standard will exclude vehicles having a maximum speed of 25 km/h. Included are machines designed to be used in public as well as private spaces, for instance in airports, libraries or large organizations, etc. In public spaces, they are already permitted on cycle tracks and sidewalks at a maximum speed of 6 km/h. “Due to the permitted tolerance, members of the working group have anticipated a possible future regulation with the addition of a specific button to switch to pedestrian mode,” mentions Emmanuel Husson. He continues: “The vast majority of manufacturers already offer a speed regulation system that could be useful if future legislation imposes a speed limit to be respected.”

The future voluntary standard will be proposed in a public inquiry in the first quarter of 2016, prior to publication in the course of the year.

How hard is it to ride an Electric Unicycle?

Most people find it quite difficult to get their head around the mechanics of an electric unicycle. The forward-backward movement is not much of a problem, because the unicycle’s gyroscopes and sensors look after that extremely well and after using the stabilizers/learning wheels for a very short time, most people have absolutely no problem with it.

The big problem, though, is to learn to master the sideways balancing, because that is completely left to you and the unicycle will not help you with it. There has been another time in most people’s life when you had to learn the sideways balancing, but that was a loooong time ago when your body was learning faster and you were less afraid of falling: Learning to ride an electric unicycle is like learning to ride a bicycle again! But the good news is that you managed once before, so you will manage it again! Give yourself some time and check out the learning resources are providing in another section of this website and trust your abilities! It is definitely worth it!

Everybody who has normal balance and normal use of legs and arms can learn it and a generalized rule could be: If you can cycle a bicycle, you can also ride a unicycle.

The good thing about human beings is that everybody is a little different and everybody has some strengths and some weaknesses. That also means that there are fast learners and others need a bit more time. We also run classes for people that want to learn it and we have seen huge differences. Some people learn the basics within 5-10 minutes, other need days or even weeks. Be consistent and keep working on it, but also leave breaks! Our brain sometimes needs a little extra time to build new connections in the brain.

Like you mastered cycling, you will also eventually master riding an electric unicycle and once you can do it, you will never forget it again.

Do you want to try? Join us in our open training and testing days.

Which Adult Electric Scooter you Should Buy?

If you currently look the most popular electric adult scooters, there are two models that dominate the European market: The E-Twow S2 Booster and Egret One-GT .

Both offer an impressive range of functions and both bring you in style from A to B. But what e-Scooter offers you more for your money?

Brand

Walberg Urban Electrics’ EGRET provides high-quality, contemporary and effective answers to the individual needs of urban mobility. Walberg Urban Electrics is based in Hamburg, Germany.

The E-TWOW – “Electric Two Wheels” brand is part of a large international concept, with headquarters both in China and Europe, focused on offering a new era of urban mobility, through their ingenious electric vehicles. A new era in Urban mobility.

Portability

For big urban areas, it is important to have a scooter that can be easily folded up and carried when you get on the bus, the tube or train.

In small, medium size cities could become a real alternative to public transport.

Although the E-Twow Booster and the Egret One GT can indeed be both folded very easily (and similar size),  the E-Twow has a clear advantage when it comes to the weight: At 10.8 kg, the Booster Plus the lightest self-propelled electric scooters on the market.

The One GT on the other hand weighs 13.5 kg. And while you do not notice the weight when driving, one perceives it quite clear when it is time to lift the scooter.

The Booster also have a usefull belt to carry your Scooter on the shoulder, or when belt is removed also a very usefull handhold to carry your scooter in one hand! Carry Belt E-Twow

Both brands have wheeled carrier bags in accesories for long distance transport.

Range

For the usual daily use both take you to destination (and back) without in between recharge.

However, the booster provides a significant advantage in terms of coverage compared to the One GT:

The booster will take you far up to 30 km before you have to recharge it. Compare this with the One GT, which has the range of 25 km, do not forget that this is the range under testing (no headwind, no gradients, minimum stopping and a driver weight of 70 kg).

In the real world, we have 20-25 km from the booster (still more than enough)  and acceptable 20 km from the One GT.

Battery & Power

The One GT is powered by a 36V 8Ah Li-Ion battery and a 250 watt motor.

The booster derives its strength from its 33V 6.5Ah Li-Po battery, coupled with a powerful 500 watt motor.

New Batteries for 2018:

  • 33V 6.5Ah Booster Plus: It is the standalone battery inherited from the powerful Booster S2, perfect for riders from 60kg up to 80kg. Handle hills great and offers a long and trusted cycle life. Max speed 30kpm, total range *25km
  • 36V 7.5Ah Booster S: The extra capacity gives you 5km more range, *30km in total. Max speed 33kph and the more voltage mean more torque. Perfect for riders over 80kg or hilly commuting journeys.
  • 36V 10.5Ah Booster V: 5th-anniversary celebration, *38km range up to 38kph. maximum torque option for demanding routes.

*Real range in our test, 70kg rider.

While both scooters offer similar performance, the booster has a great advantage when it comes to the charging time. The Boosters 3.5 Amp “fast charger” allows you to fully charge the battery in just 2 hours (the fastest time among all electric adult scooters).

The One GT, on the other hand, takes 2 hours to reach 70% but it needs 6 hours until the battery is fully charged.

Brakes

The booster is equipped with two brakes, one recuperation front (KERS, the battery recharges every time you brake) and a manual friction brake rear (like a regular kick scooter, for additional braking force).

The One GT has double drum brake front and back reduces the stopping distance dramatically.

Wheels and suspension

Both scooters have puncture-resistant, solid rubber wheels. However, we are dealing with a case where size really plays a role: With larger 200 mm wheels the Booster offers a much smoother ride than the One GT.

The significantly smaller 160 mm wheels of One GT provide a much bumpy driving experience than the Booster (especially on asphalt and roads with cracks and holes).

Both, however, are equipped with dual suspension, with shock absorbers on the front and rear wheels, which contribute to a softer ride.

Design

We are big fans of the design of the One GT with a sleek, modern look and it’s wider handlebar, the One GT looks awesome it also feels more robust when riding it.

The design of the Booster PLUS is also top-notch. It’s thin footboard and the rear friction brake makes it appear as a conventional scooter for those looking for discretion.

Both are solidly constructed from high quality aluminum. Where we have noticed that the handles on Booster become slightly wobbly while driving than in One GT, the Egret feels solid.

The booster is available in four colors (white, black, green or gray), the One GT in black only.

Extras

A feature that we love the Booster, is the integrated front and rear light

The spotlight is a bright LED lamp that illuminates your path you. And the rear lights are wired so that they light up every time you brake. He also has a Horn-button, which is integrated into the display (Note: the sound of the horn is a bit annoying and we do not use it too often).

The One GT comes with rear and really bright front light plus it has a handy little kickstand.

Both have lots of extra accessories to choose from.

Electric Unicycle Terminology

 
 

EUC” (for Electric UniCycle)

 

The usual term used for the electric unicycles has usually been an “EUC” (for Electric UniCycle) More informally refer to them as “wheels”.

EUC Riding

Idling

Idling is the term for staying pretty much in place by moving the EUC back and forth. This is taxing for the motor (constantly changing direction) and eats up your battery fast, but can be useful for example to wait for a traffic light to change or such.

Leaning

 Leaning refers to using your body to move your center of gravity and control the EUC. You lean forwards and backwards to accelerate/decelerate or change direction. To turn the EUC, you usually lean to the direction you want to turn to (left or right), although you can also use your hips to “swivel” around for tight in-place turns.

Out-lean

Out-lean is a term used to refer to a situation where the rider leans (usually) forwards so much that the wheel cannot keep him/her balanced anymore, and usually ends up with the rider dismounting (or falling). Out-leaning usually occurs in uphills, where the wheel motor cannot keep producing enough torque to keep the wheel upright as the rider keeps leaning forward. Usually it occurs only after the full tilt-back, so most people shouldn’t be able to do it accidentally, unless it’s due to low battery (if the tilt-back is based on speed).

Overpower

Overpowering a wheel refers to similar situation as with out-lean, but seems to be more commonly used to describe a situation where the wheel cannot keep you balanced on level ground, for example when hitting a pothole that causes the wheel to tilt too much to forward or simply out-leaning.

Overspeed

 “Overspeed” is the speed where the mainboard cuts the power to the motor. I’m not certain why the cut-off occurs, but suspect that it would either require too much current to accelerate the motor faster (risking of burning components or voltage dropping too much) or the motor is very near it’s maximum rpm (where the torque drops so much that it cannot keep balancing the rider anymore). Some people suggest that the motor should never cut-off and instead let the pedals tilt forward once the motor cannot run any faster, leaving the rider at least a chance to try to recover, as shutting down the motor surely leads to a fall.

Power braking

This is a type of braking where you push the wheel in front of you with your legs while simultaneously leaning back and pushing the pedals down to brake as fast as possible. Requires some practice, but not that difficult, and a useful skill when you need to stop “on a dime”.

Tilt-back

Tilt-back is a safety measure, where the wheel starts to tilt the pedals backwards at higher speeds to warn and prevent the rider from leaning more forwards. While it is possible to lean more and try to get more speed, it might not be wise, as you can trigger a mainboard induced cut-off due to overspeed. Most wheels have this (some let the user adjust the tilt-back speeds with app), but some don’t have it at all.

Inmotion V3, The twin wheeled electric unicycle

InMotion V3 stands out from any other electric wheel simply because the learning process is much shorter and for most of the beginners will take just a couple of tries. Thick leather side panels make InMotion V3 one of the most comfortable wheels for both learners and advanced riders. It should also be noted that most people complain about quite painful learning on some of the other models currently available on the market, whereas InMotion V3 very well differentiates itself from this crowd.

The quality is unbelievable , sleek, with great features including a suit case style handle to wheel it along and not carry, and also on board speaker (V3) that are quite good sounding. It also speaks to you, says hello when turning on, warns you of over speeding, among other things. The voice is very clear.

Inmotion-v3c-handle-PET

Has a front and back light, which alternate in colour, so the front is white, but for backwards it turns red. The ride is somewhat different to a single wheel, sloping surfaces does require a differ approach to ride on, but you soon get to grips with it. Loads of power, and a silky smooth ride with little sound.

InMotion V3 promises to cover a distance of up to 14 kilometres on a single charge with the top speed reaching 18 kph. At a moderate pace a rider of 85 kg can manage to use it for up to 3 hours.

On an even surface InMotion V3 performs quite well, it is smooth, powerful and safe. Maneuverability is reduced because of the twin wheel design, however it is not that much of an issue as riders can compensate by having more stability when it comes to turning at slow speed.

inmotion-v3c-electric-unicycle (1)

All in all the is a classy wheel and very simple to ride. Anyone who’s trying to learn to ride electric unicycles should look at buying one of these. Pro users can even perform tricks and jumps which is quite unusual for a dual wheel model. It is quite impressive, we must say we applaud SCV for InMotion V3 and cannot wait for company’s next products to come out.
