If you are on the hunt for a dual motor electric skateboard which can ride both on urban roads and complex terrains, then Yecoo GT and Yecoo GTS electric skateboard from Yecoo could be your top picks. They are both called “urban cross-country vehicle”.
- Yecoo GT (2IN1) Electric Skateboard
- Yecoo GTS (2IN1) Electric Skateboard
First of all, GT electric skateboard is a new design Yecoo designed to improve performance while paying more attention to details. And GTS is an updated version based on GT electric skateboard. Both of them can give you a totally different experience of switching between urban road and off-road mode.
Deck --- The GT series are constructed by 8 layers of Canadian Maple plus baking paint, which adopts the leading industry technology and exquisite production technology. It has great toughness and strong compressive strength. Its max load weight is 330lbs(150kg), which is unbelievable because on the market, there are few electric skateboards can achieve this load weight.
Motor --- The motor is out of shaft, so it’s mute when riding. With 2000-watt power, the motor will give enough power and high torque for riding on the hard terrains, such as the lawn, hilly road and unsurfaced road, etc. The motor is placed externally. It won’t directly contact the ground, avoiding wearing.
Battery --- The battery uses Samsung 8800mAh, which is safer and has longer lifetime. For longer distance and expanding the max range, one piece battery box uses 6600mAh capacity to provide strong enough power. Given the highest-end model hyper mode, Yecoo GTS allows you to reach a top speed of 25mph, and Yecoo GT allows you to reach a top speed of 22mph. They give you access to lightning-fast acceleration.
Wheel --- The wheel is the most brilliant feature GT series have. There are two kinds of optional wheels. The 83mm PU wheel is used on flat road, while the 6-inch off-road wheel is used on dirt road, grass road, hill road and mountain road. High elastic PU wheel with a diameter of 83mm can provide better shock absorbing effect at high speed. 6-inch off-road wheel is made of non-inflatable silicone tires. Soft silica gel material feels so comfortable for cycling that you do not have to worry about the puncture and repair. The wheel replacement can be done quickly in two minutes.
Weight --- The weight of the board is 19.62lbs (8.9kg). As a vehicle, it is light to carry.
Remote --- The remote’s control distance is 14m. The remote control system is accurately designed to make driving safer and more controlled.
Appearance --- For GTS skateboard, there are two colorful lights equipped on the battery box. The lights will change their direction and speed as the skateboard rides.
Range --- Go up to 15-20 miles with the extended range battery (actual range will be affected by road conditions, the rider weight, temperature .etc )
To some off-road enthusiasts, GT series is a perfect choice for them to travel by switching freely between urban mode and cross-country mode. It delivers up to 2,000-watt power, giving you a whole new and unforgettable riding experience. The use of the more powerful motors system in these GT series electric skateboards means that it is capable of accelerating or climbing hills while also giving a smooth braking system, letting you stop completely on your way down in the process of sliding naturally.
Both the battery box and the controller box are made of ABS+PC material with good toughness and high strength. The controller box is specially equipped with a heat dissipation hole and 5mm thick aluminum heat sink. The heat dissipation effect is better. In addition, the controller box and the battery box are placed separately, which improves the elasticity of the deck, avoids heat conduction and gives higher security. Thanks to the separate equipment, the after-sales service is simple and convenient. It’s easy to detect problems and change accessories.
Setting apart from GT and other electric skateboards, GTS is preferable due to the colorful lights at the bottom case. 2 colorful flashy lights will change their speed and direction as the electric skateboard slides, which is the most attracting in appearance and unique design for skateboard enthusiasts.
As all-terrain skateboard, the wheel must be the pivotal part. For dual purpose, the wheels are designed specially through multiple evaluations. The 83mm PU wheel is used on flat road, while the 6-inch off-road wheel is used on unsurfaced road, the lawn, hilly road and mountain road. Two sets of wheels can be switched quickly within two minutes. This is the reason why GT series become SUVS of electric skateboards.
Through the professional evaluation, one of the significant differences between Yecoo GT series and Yecoo 2S, Yecoo XJ(another two types of Yecoo) is that you can do hill climbing from 20% to 30% grade without breaking a sweat, while Yecoo 2S’s hill climbing is only 20%~25% grade and Yecoo XJ’s 25%~30% grade. Obviously, the range of hill climbing of GT series is larger and they can completely take the place of 2S and XJ when you are doing up hill.
It makes use of the solid and safe Canadian maple wood for its deck, which is tenacious enough to bear the weight of 330lbs(150kg).
The range of GT series can be 15-20 miles. The range depends on the riders’ weight, the road condition and air speed,etc. The max range of GT is up to 18 miles, while GTS’s max range is up to 20 Miles with small wheels and up to 15 miles with big wheels.
With 83mm PU wheel, the deceleration ratio is 1:3; while in 6-inch off road wheel, deceleration ratio is 1:5. With high torque and strong power, you will have a comfortable and smooth riding experience in this dual-purpose SUV.
What’s more, comparing with those expensive electric skateboards, Yecoo GT series give you high performance with low price and there is also great warranty. Nowadays, Yecoo GT and Yecoo GTS are becoming more and more popular on the all-terrain skateboard market. More and more skateboarders whosoever beginners or experts choose Yecoo.
As following, there is a skateboard evaluation on Yecoo GTS of a guy, Joseph from California. “Influenced by the native culture of skateboard and living in the strong atmosphere of extreme sports, I have keen interests in skateboard. I love the intense sense of speed and enjoy the freedom and carefreeness when I gallop on the road by an electric skateboard.” said Joseph.
Out of curiosity and interest, I decided to evaluate an all-terrain electric skateboard, so I bought a Yecoo GTS on Yecoo official website. It’s said GTS is one of the most popular all-terrain skateboards on currant market.
First of all, open my delivery package with excitement and great expectation. Inside it, I can see my completely assembled Yecoo board with 6-inch wheels. A set of 83mm PU high elastic wheels is also included. In the box, there is a remote wireless control, T wrench tool for daily maintenance and an adapter and charger matched US plug according my address.
Although I can’t wait to get up the board to feel its speed and power, I think it is necessary to figure out how the remote control works. Under evaluation, the 2.4G high-frequency remote control has about 14 M control distance. Furthermore, its construction is very simple and convenient to control. Actually, there are only two function switches. Moving the gear control is easy to go forward and brake when you stand on the board. There are three speed modes: high, middle and low for option. According to the specification, the remote should be charged within 5 V, 1 A charger, or you can use the computer USB interface to charge it. Charging voltage over 5 V will do harm to the remote battery.
Then take out the board, it weighs about 8-9 kilometers. Finally, I touch this beautiful skateboard on my own. I know Yecoo is very proud of their unique design in appearance on Yecoo GTS. Setting apart from GT and other electric skateboards, GTS is preferable due to the colorful lights at the bottom case. 2 colorful flashy lights will change their speed and direction as the electric skateboard slides, which is the most attracting in appearance and unique design for skateboard enthusiasts.
As for the deck, I can clearly see what it is made of. The deck is constructed by 8 layers of Canadian Maple plus baking paint, which adopts the leading industry technology and exquisite production technology. It has great toughness and strong compressive strength. Its max load weight is 330lbs(150kg), which is unbelievable because on the market, there are few electric skateboards can achieve this load weight.
I know GTS is famous for its wheels, because as an all-terrain skateboard, the wheel must be the pivotal part. For dual purpose, it gives me two sets of wheels. The 83mm PU wheel is used on flat road, while the 6-inch off-road wheel is used on all terrains, such as unsurfaced road, the lawn, hilly road and mountain road. At the beginning, I think it will be troublesome to change the wheels. However, after getting know its construction, I can switch two sets of wheels quickly within two minutes.
Riding on the flat road, the first thing I want to evaluate is its brake because I have tried other electric skateboard whose brake is so tight that I almost fall down because of the sudden braking. The brake of GTS really satisfies me. As I move down the gear switch, the skateboard is getting slower and slower, then it stops. It feels so smooth and comfortable and no more scary for me when I brake. Following, I tried it on the lawn. The roughness of the grass didn’t influence the smooth riding of the board at all. And I can even ride it at a speed of about 24mph! No wonder everyone says GTS is the SUV of electric skateboards!
