Ollin Board Company is working on an electric longboard deck that features integrated compartments for the batteries and electronic components. This is a significant improvement over the bulky battery packs that have previously been mounted externally. The decks are composed of Maple, Baltic Birch and fiberglass composite with a removable aluminum top hatch that allows access to the interior compartments. At 38.75″ long and 10.25″ wide, there is room to store enough batteries for a 40 mile range. Production boards will ship with a 27-29MPH top speed but with some modifications 40MPH is possible!
What About the E-Boards?
The boards will feature an auxiliary USB charging port for charging cellphones or other accessories and a built in digital voltage display. Included are a transmitter/receiver and 1 or 2 VESC motor controllers depending on which package you purchase. You will need to supply trucks, wheels, motors and motor mounts but some of these components are available at Ollin’s site.
Ollin hopes to have the decks out soon. Take a look at the link and we’ll update when they’re available.
