Dot Boards - Electric Freedom

An Aussie outfit with a revolutionary hub motor design. Haven’t we heard this song before? :thinking:

While their design shows innovation, especially with battery packs, I remain skeptical, however I hope they succeed nonetheless.

What are your thoughts?

Looks pretty interesting, I would like to see more detailed testing data though.

Seems expensive $1950 AUD for the short board with 2 batteries and two motors. A boosted mini x is $1200 AUD.

No reviews from anyone on you tube that I could see. I would be waiting to see what Scott Davies says about it before considering

Those rear hubs look funky. I see seams and seperation in the future.

Yeah the price is up there…

“affordable” $1400? hmm seems like a smarter idea to me to save money and get an evolve or boosted, the hubs are odd sized and look kind of like stuff we have seen before

Looked closer. The clear thane threw me off. No obvious issue with hubs.

Nicely integrated and all, but where they get off charging that much for a hub drive IDK.

Transporter version looks a bit awkward.

Overrated for now… awkward board shapes, it’s a wait and see. Makes one wonder who were boosted and evolve’s backers in the beginning (need to brush up on irrelevant history)

No need. I can answer that.

Like us? :nerd_face:

Well… I owned an evolve for a short time.

So did I LOL! A BGT for about 5 months, until I got tired of the voltage sag and the remote buffering problems.

You can get it looking a little less awkward you know.

That’s 2x Evolve money though. Can get a GTR and a Stoke for the same, or better build a kick-ass DIY or two.

I’m gonna need those hub motors closer together, though.

Now that you mention it, notice the track width front to back isn’t the same. Even with the big wheeler.
