Yes, the Evolve Carbon GT Series is an expensive skateboard but there is no arguing that the Evolve Carbon GT Series is simply the best electric skateboard that money can buy.
|Three Choices of Wheels|
The Evolve Bamboo GTX Series is very much the same electric skateboard as the Carbon GT Series only it is manufactured from slightly cheaper components. This is of course reflected in the price of the Evolve Bamboo GTX Series.
The most notable difference between the two electric skateboards is the deck. Rather than being made from carbon the deck on the Evolve Bamboo GTX Series is manufactured from 7 ply Canadian maple hardwood combined with 2 ply bamboo. This still gives the Evolve Bamboo GTX Series a medium flex but it is slightly heavier than the carbon fiber alternative.
The Evolve Bamboo GTX Series still boasts the same Black GT Super Carve 306mm trucks as its bigger brother although the Bamboo GTX Series comes with only one choice of wheels. The wheels that are provided are 12 inches wide and they give the Evolve Bamboo GTX Series a smooth and stable ride and are ideal for carving and cruising.
The high performance custom made sensored dual brush out-runner 3000 watt electric motor has enough torque to propel the Evolve Bamboo GTX Series up an incline of 25% and gives it a top speed of 26mph. The high capacity lithium battery provides enough power to take this electric skateboard up to 31 miles between charges.
Controlling the Evolve Bamboo GTX Series is done through the use of a special wireless controller that also features a hand LCD display. The LCD display provides the rider with live information such as distance travelled, speed, battery power and more.
The Evolve Bamboo GTX Series is certainly a strong contender as the best electric skateboard especially if the Carbon GT Series is a little out of your price range.
