After learning the electric skateboard in the market for now, I found more and more brushless hub motors system electric skateboard brand emerged, for hub motors have Some benefits over belt systems, e.g. Less Drag/You can kick push hub motors/Brakes Better/Hub Motors weight less/Simpler design=Less Maintenance/Quiter hub motors. That’s all enough for me choosing a hub motor electric skateboard for commuting.
