Electric skateboard Questions and answers

What is the difference between belt drive, hub drive and direct drive in electric skateboards?

Hub Drives motors are embedded in the wheel itself. While this is common, it has its’ downfalls if you want change at your wheel type. The motor applies the torque directly within the wheel. It’s a simple option with the motor and wheel spinning as 1 unit, with a 1 to 1 ratio. 1 spin of the motor = 1 spin of the wheel.

The trade off with hub motor skateboard is that the braking is not as good but energy efficiency is great, and they are much quieter than a belt motor.

Belt Drive Motors are the original Electric Skateboard system and uses belts and gears to drive you forward. Advantages include greater torque, better breaking, but louder noise and no free roll. So when you come off the power you will slow much quicker. Belt drive requires some more maintenance however these parts are normally inexpensive and easy to replace yourself.

The least common, but becoming more popular, is the direct drive motor. Unlike the hub drive the direct drive motor is located just inside the wheel attached to your skateboard trucks. The biggest advantage here is that you can easily switch out your wheels to suit your riding style. The motors are very efficient, creating good levels of torque.
