I just wanted to start by thanking everyone for their support! Tayto kits will not stay in stock, and we are doing our best to catch up with demand. With that said, we have been working on something exciting, that will be in stock ready to ship by 8/1/2020 (no pre-orders)!

Introduing the BKB Duo

The kit includes all of the necessary parts, tools, and information required to assemble your own high performance DIY electric skateboard!

VESC Based Motor Controller: this allows you to customize exactly how the board rides. Switching remotes, motors, batteries, etc has never been easier! It also allows you to tune the acceleration/brake curve exactly how you want. We send it stock with an aggressive curve, meaning you can quickly get up to speed and smoothly stop just as fast. However, if your a more casual rider, you can change a few settings to have a boosted like throttle response. This is only a brief mention of what the VESC is capable of, there is so much more!

Dual 3000W Motors: Our dual 3000W motors provide a maximum of 6000W at peak power. Needless to say, you’ll have plenty of power to beat any Chinese board off the line, and climb any hill you can find.

Modular Drivetrain: Our drivetrain is designed in house, and is completely modular. You can use hundreds of different wheel types. The board will come stock with Flywheel pulleys, so any wheel with a genuine/clone flywheel core will work (ABEC11, Cloudwheels, etc). With a swap of wheel pulleys you can use any wheel with a Kegel core (Otang, Hyperdrive, Boa’s, TB110, etc). We have also designed a 6" Pneumatic wheel that is easily swapped and allows you to go over much more rugged terrain. All of this can be swapped in and out in less than 4 minutes.

Tru-Flex Deck: We took special consideration when designing the deck. A lot of our customer modify the boards to go 40+ mph, so it needs to be stable at speed. Our Tru-Flex deck will be stable at these speeds and will return to center quickly after going over an obstacle. This means that the board will flex downwards, upwards, and then return to center (not modulate up and down). We will also have two flex levels for riders over 240lbs.

Bluetooth Programming & Live Metrics: We will provide a bluetooth module with all kits that allow you to view real-time data, track rides, check battery voltage, etc. You can also use this to wirelessly program the VESC (capabilities mentioned above). There are iOS, Apple Watch and Android apps available (not designed by us). Xmatic for iPhone and VESC Tool for Android.

Accessories: Since most of the board is completely modular we will have many different accessories available. These include: 105mm Cloudwheels, 120mm Cloudwheels, 6in Pneumatic Tires, Kegel Wheel Pulleys, ShredLights, 40mph+ Speed Kit, Belt Guards, Riptide Bushings, and a few more are in the works! We are also doing things a little different, and will not be doing pre-orders for this kit. So, it will only be available when it is in stock and ready to ship!

Tayto is not going anywhere! It will be a big brother, little brother situation.

There is not, it complicates stock too much, and you would need a specific battery layout anyway.

I only have prototypes here that have extra holes in the deck, and the trucks stick out the end of the board. Production deck will be much nicer.

Jared.
Looks cool.
Good luck once again.
What is the battery you will be using on these?

I’m guessing 10s3p 30Q, we know its 10s because FS and the watt hour listing adds up to that
