Electric Skateboard Single Hub Motor Kit
This is an affordable single hub motor setup to use with an electric skateboard or electric longboard. These hub motor setups are a bit cheaper than the belt driven kits. They are not recommended for climbing hills and mainly for flat ground riding. Hill climbing is possible but you should be going up a hill at speed and not trying to go up without speed.
They are an easy to install fit. Direct slip onto a Paris style truck. Main benefit is unlike most hub motors this utilizes the axle nut to lock the hub motor into the axle providing you with more safety and less worry that your hub motor might come off of the axle.
