    Hey man, that looks to be one awesome looking beast of a board. Ernesto is certainly getting his name mentioned all over the forums & the credit he deserves for these fantastic builds. You will have to share with us your experience with the way it performs, would love to hear your thoughts!

    Comparably priced to what a new 2 in 1 Carbon GT is going for.

    That's fantastic value for money considering the level of specs/build quality/performance. Enjoy your new ride & let us know your thoughts on things like ride comfort/performance/range etc. in due course?

    So far I'm very pleased with the way the board performs. It's insanely fast, has predictable braking. and carves as easy as butter. Naturally it took a little tweaking to dial in the springs to my liking, but even that was easy and very straight forward. Although I've yet to top this board out in terms of speed, I have gotten it up and over 25 mph and it's rock solid. I also attempted to drain the battery, but found myself more drained than the battery itself. I put roughly 18 miles on it one afternoon, and the LED meter was still at 50%.

    The 14 ply deck is also super plush. It's classified as being "firm" (softest out of the 3 deck options Trampa offers) but I assume due to it's curved design, it has more flex than your typical firm flat deck. It definitely serves its purpose on and around the streets of NYC.

    I also love the fact that I can switch from dual to single motor use with the click of a button, for when I don't need the extra power and torque.

    All in all, I'm very pleased with the board! Ernesto has done it again!

    Hey thanks for sharing with us. Ernesto is most definitely "The Man" as many who have commissioned his builds have previously stated in these forums & elsewhere!
