    MOD UPDATE WITH VIDEO:



    Screen shot from the new weekly evolve video. In the video Jeff says it a new product releasing April 14 2017. Anybody have the insider info? I'm assuming it's just a new deck option.

    That's what I was thinking.

    Small, lighter more portable board perhaps?!

    That would awesome

    smaller, and in a different shot in the youtube, video i can only see 1 motor...
    I'm thinking they are trying to hit a $999 price point.

    Nice, yep, definitely a small more budget friendly board then.

    Maybe street wheel only?

    I'm suprised there isn't more talk about this.
    Who would add a small cheap travel board to their collection?
    Would be good for touring around cities I guess and final leg commuting.
    Would even get a whole new market into the sport and they'll probably have to upgrade once they get addicted. Gateway drug.

    Me. I'm currently mucking round with a benchwheel pennyboard I got cheap to try to make my ideal board...single motor / small battery / 32" max length

    :cool:
    Oh good. Finally someone else has one Are you having any problems charging the remote?? I've had mine for 10 days now and when I plug in the remote I just get a blue lite. So haven't charged it for a week now and it is stilll going strong. Great board for the money, but did change the bearings. What kind of light indications do you get when charging the remote?? Can't find much info or help trouble-shooting problems. Actually got another remote after complaining to Amazon but was waiting to try it when original finally dies. Was wondering if have to fully discharge it before it will charge??? Everything else works perfect and I have a lot of fun with it on smooth surfaces. Still use my Bamboo AT on the rough, pothole filled roads here in Texas.
    Thanks for any info you can give me in advance

    Hi. Had mine about a week. The remote has a solid blue light when fully charged. TBH, I'm not sure what it does while charging......I think it's a blinking blue light.....because I've only charged it once. I plugged it in and left, but came back a minute later and it was already showing the solid blue light.
    I think the evolve remote goes through battery far quicker because it has the display, and we're just not used to having the battery last so long. I think the boosted remote is similar.
    Also, even though the remote feels cheap to hold, I far prefer its shape and thumb control.

    No problems yet but it's early days.

    OK. Thanks. It's been a week and about 18 miles and it's still going strong. Will try and plug it in tonight. I'm getting closer to 10 miles per charge on the board and it charges MUCH faster than Evolve's. Probably doesn't have a cell balancing feature. Cheers and thanks again for info. A lot lighter and easier to carry around board.

    No problem. I'm looking at transplanting the hardware onto a 32" deck. The 28" penny board deck is just a little too short for me.

    I haven't measured distance yet but it seems pretty decent

    Cool. Maybe you could start a new thread about the build. I really like the size and weight. Your 32" re-do shouldn't add too much and maybe you could get better trucks (at least the front one)
     
  17. I'm really hoping it's a flexible wide bamboo with CGT specs!

    I predict:
    • 32-36" deck, bamboo obviously
    • Smaller battery (air travel friendly)
    • Single GT motor to get more efficiency out of the smaller battery
    • Easily swappable battery??
    • It has GT trucks, so I think AT can be an option, but it may not be sold as a 2-in-1. It's something individual riders can opt to do as a custom, but I think the only purchase option will be street to keep the price point low
    • 30km top speed
    • 20km range
    • $999 price point

    If I'm close, this board corners a few markets, such as, beginner/budget/entry level, commuter, travel friendly, back-up board. Hell, I'd think about getting one as a back-up to the GT and travel buddy and sell my current back-up Gen2!

    I agree, those spec's would be nice....32" would be my perfect commuter length board
