Our Electric Longboard Trucks!

Need help building an electric skateboard? Feel free to send us an email and we are more then happy to help you build your electric skateboard or electric longboard from start to finish. We offer pre-welded motor mount solutions for an Electric Longboard which you can put on any longboard or skateboard deck. Our pre-welded motor mounts allow you to fit a common Remote Control (RC) Car Motor onto your skateboard/longboard trucks which will be powered by a belt drive from the motor shaft to the drive wheel with an attached pulley belt. That’s mainly the hardest part of building your own electric skateboard.

We have struggled and learned from all our mistakes which make us qualified to help beginner’s create their first Electric Longboard Build. If you are an experienced builder, you can simply use our pre-welded electric longboard trucks and customize your build with your imagination. We do our best to provide instructional electric skateboard videos, electric skateboard wiring diagrams and photos of other builds that help inspire you to create your own customized electric longboards.

Our durable and reliable Electric Skateboard Kits allow you to customize and build your own personal electric longboard with ease.

  • Easy and simple installation. Bolt on your longboard trucks with the pre-welded motor mounts for single or dual motors and done! No need to bolt on any motor mounts to your trucks.
  • Most durable and reliable pre-welded motor mounts available! No need to check your electric skateboard every block to tighten motor mount bolts and/or use loctite on bolts.
  • Choose a single or dual pre-welded motor mount setup. Single motors can reach 23+mph and high voltage dual motor setups can reach 35-45+mph.
  • Cruise and Enjoy an Electric Longboard. With a range of 6 to 20 miles per charge (depends on your battery setup, which we can help you with).

A complete electric skateboard is capable of 20mph to 45+ mph, a range of 6 miles to 20+ miles per charge with the ability to climb 20-30% hill inclines (depending on build setup). Best of all, these electric longboards have braking abilities through a handheld RC controller which is one of the most amazing aspects of having an electric skateboard.

Currently, we have recently started offering Motor Mounts that you can weld onto 180/195mm Paris Trucks. From our previous customers and interested buyers. We noticed many of our customers are looking for a pre-welded motor mount solution. I’m proud to now announce that we will start having pre-welded single and dual motor mount kits available for purchase.

      We use either 63mm Brushless RC motors or 50mm Brushless RC motors. If you are trying to reach higher speed and don’t care too much about weight the 63mm Brushless RC motors are recommended. If you are looking for an electric skateboard that goes about 20mph and want it as lightweight as possible the 50mm Brushless RC motors are best with a 6S Battery setup.

      How much watts the battery gives depends on the voltage of the battery that you are using. I recommend 6S batteries usually (2) 3S 5000mah batteries as they are much cheaper and provide just enough power to climb hills and reach 20-24mph.

      Hi Seamus,

      I am using HTD 5mm pitch for my pulley system and it is working great. I’m at about 800+ miles on my eboard.

      Each kit comes with the entire mechanical kit which includes 180mm Paris clone trucks w/ welded motor mount, drive train setup (motor pulley, drive wheel pulley, pulley belt) and a pair of 83mm ABEC 11 Flywheel clones in neon green.

      I also sell the following ESC speed controllers. They each have ABS Braking and Regenerative Braking when you use brakes. They are programmable through USB.
      Single 8S 120Amp ESC – $120
      Dual 8S 120Amp ESC – $240
      Dual 12S 150Amp ESC – $300
