New Metroboard Slim Electric Longboard has arrived!

New for Fall 2014, we are proud to release our brand new Metroboard Slim Electric Longboard.  The Metroboard Slim has been completely redesigned from the grounds up for a truly unique carving and transportation solution that takes the Metroboard Electric Skateboard to a whole new level of fun, styling, and portability. Here’s are some of the amazing new features: HoneySkateboards 40” Velocity V2 Deck:  This beautiful deck with wood pin striping looks gorgeous and carves like a dream thanks to its broad 10″ width across the entire riding platform.

Brushless Outrunner Motor - Metroboard Electric Skateboard

Brushless Outrunner Motor Mounted on Metroboard Electric Skateboard

This week I figured out how to mount a 6374 Brushless Outrunner Motor on the Metroboard Electric Skateboard, using the existing motor bracket without drilling any new holes!  This is just for prototyping and testing purposes, as we will probably make a smaller and thinner motor bracket to match the smaller size and lighter weight of the Brushless Outrunner Motor once we implement this in production.

Brushless Outrunner Motor Testing

We’ve begun testing some Brushless Outrunner Motors for the Metroboard Electric Skateboard.  Unlike an Inrunner Brushless Motor, an Outrunner houses its magnets on the body of the motor, and the body spins with the motor shaft.  These have become popular for use on Electric Skateboards (e.g., Boosted Boards), because of their small size, light weight, and high power density.  However, they are typically designed for use on RC Airplanes to drive the propeller so adapting them for Electric Skateboards requires some customization for them to work successfully. For example on an RC airplane, the load on the motor is fairly constant, so you can get away without using Hall (Magnetic) Sensors to drive the brushless motor, but with an Electric Skateboard the load is quite variable including starting from rest with a heavy load which can result in jerky motion without the use of Hall Sensors. So far the smoothest possible ride, we plan on using these motors with Hall Sensors.…
