As all we know, in-wheel hub motors is new technology, it was used on electric skateboards on 2014 (Koowheel D3M launched at 2015) since then the electric skateboard community has had continuous argument about which kind electric skateboard motor system is better.

For me, I preper In-wheel Hub motors more. I’ll give you the reasons why!

1, In-wheel hub motors have less maintenance, and high efficient;

2, Lightweight. it allows you kick pushing easily like regular skating when your battery dies

3, Quiter. Hub motor is very quiet when belt engine making lot of noise.

4, Short Braking distance. Hub motor could brake the wheel at once while belt-driven motor have to transmitted to the drive belt first and then the wheel.

Koowheel Onxy VS Evolve Bamboo GT

1, Koowheel Onxy price $649, Evolve bamboo GT price $1399, double as Koowheel

2, From the specifications, Kooboard max speed faster or same with Evolve Bamboo GT, while 45kph vs 42kph

3, Koowheel Onyx kooboard have swappable battery which could extend your range to 40-50km with an extra 5500mAh battery.
