CARVON V1, V2/2.5 and V3 Dual Direct Drive Motors
CARVON V1, V2/2.5 and V3 Dual Direct Drive Motors

CARVON has been at the forefront of the Electric Skateboard and Longboard revolution. Our Hub Motors kit have long been popular with the Electric Skateboard DIY crowd, like the A2ESK8 Squad pictured above. We have a lot of positive feedbacks from the internet forums. One of our best riders, Rik of runplayback.com, has a video of him reaching 31 mph on his Single V2 Hub Motor. Our latest Direct Drive V3 and CARVON X motors will power our new complete boards, the EVO and REVO 4WD.

  

  

  

V3 -- Not Hub Motors

V3 Early Prototype
V3 Early Prototype

Our new CARVON V3 Dual Direct Drive Motors are not hub motors. They are not positioned inside the wheels. They are positioned next to the wheels, so that the whole structure of the wheel is maintained. Experience has taught us that having full and thick urethane wheels is better in terms of the ride quality and long-term durability of the motors. Just say "NO" to thin urethane!

X Motor -- 2 on 1

X Motor Demo
X Motor Demo

The CARVON X Motor is a Single motor that drives two wheels. It's a geared-down setup that uses belts to multiply the torque output of the motor. But unlike other belt drives, the CARVON X incorporates one-way bearings so that the wheels can spin faster than the motor's output. This allows for the outside wheel to turn faster than the inside wheel, which what happens when you turn or carve. The CARVON X is combined with Dual V3 Motors for the REVO 4WD setup.

 

  

   

Drop-Down Deck with Carbon Fiber Layer

CARVON Deck

The CARVON deck will be a drop-down for that low-to-the-ground riding feel. It will have carbon fiber layers on the routed bottom to maintain stiffness along the electronics part of the deck. This will ensure that the electrical connections remain solid and does not break off from bending and flexing of the deck. Despite of the stiffness around the electronics area, the whole deck will still be comfortable to ride. This simple approach will help us finish the deck faster so that we can deliver them to you ASAP!

EVO with V3 Dual Direct Drive Motors
EVO with V3 Dual Direct Drive Motors

Introducing CARVON EVO with Dual V3 motors, a drop-down deck and full-urethane wheels for an unparalleled riding experience. The V3 motors can rocket the board and its rider past 30 mph. By having no belts, the V3 has almost no drag and can coast really, really far--just like hub motors. The full-urethane wheels means you can rotate all four wheels, just like car tires, for an even wear. It also means that the EVO looks super-stealthy and can easily be mistaken as a regular longboard. 

This is the Electric Longboard that feels and rides closest to a regular, non-powered Longboard. It is the "natural" EVOlution of the Electric Skateboard/Longboard. If you like E-boards, but feel they are too mechanized and does not ride smoothly, this is the one for you. If you like bombing hills but live on flat terrain, this is the one for you. If you like coasting but do not like thin-urethane wheels, this is the one for you.

EVO Tech Specs:

  • Dual Direct Drive (Non Hub) Dual V3 Motors with 2000W combined power
  • 90mm Full-urethane and High-rebound wheels
  • 30+ mph Top Speed and up to 15% Hill Climb ability
  • Up to 14 miles range

 REVO 4WD -- All-in-one board, really!

CARVON REVO 4WD

REVO 4WD with Dual V3 and X Motors
REVO 4WD with Dual V3 and X Motors

If the EVO is evolutionary, the REVO 4WD is the true REVOlution. It combines the CARVON V3 Motors up front, with the CARVON X Motor in the rear. This setup provides both added torque and higher top speed. It gives the boost on startup and the needed push on uphill climbs because of the geared-down X Motor, but it does not lock the wheels in that gear ratio. Because of the one-way bearings, the rear wheels are able to rotate faster than the X Motor as they eventually get power from the V3 Motors only on higher speeds. The concept is similar to Part-Time 4WD cars that run 2WD on the highways. This is a gearbox on wheels.

The deck is the same with the EVO, and all four wheels can also be rotated. This setup comes with both 97mm urethane and 7" pneumatic wheels. With REVO 4WD, we have meshed the best features of both Geared and Direct Drives for a truly innovative and game-changing Electric Longboard. This is the board every E-board enthusiast should have.

REVO 4WD Tech Specs:

  • Dual Direct Drive (Non Hub) Dual V3 and CARVON X Motors with 3000W combined power
  • 97mm Full and High-rebound Urethane and 7" Pneumatic Wheels
  • Up to 35 mph Top Speed and 25% Hill Climb ability 
  • Up to 20 miles range

CARVON Remote Control

Remote with Slide Puck
Remote with Slide Puck

Introducing an Electric Longboard remote control that can be used with slide pucks. The CARVON remote control is placed on the back of the palm and secured with straps to allow non-grip operation and the ability to use slide pucks. This opens up a new dimension in riding E-boards! We will also provide a traditional small thumb-throttle remote control for those that would like a more familiar feel and are not really into sliding. Check out the following video on how easy and natural to use them.

Risks and challenges

Ever since our start almost 5 years ago, we at CARVON have prioritized great designs and engineering over PR. That's why we have been mostly under-the-radar, quietly building, testing and riding our latest iteration. From our first project, an Electric Rollerblades called Pediglide, then SkatE-Pods, a hands-free Electric Skateboard, and now to CARVON, we have always been fascinated with Light Electric Vehicles. We have the experience and knowledge to fulfill our promise.

We have gotten the designs completed, tested the prototypes and lined up our suppliers. All we need is your support for us to move forward and usher in the Next Generation Electric Longboards. With your help, we can share the exciting future of high-performance and high-adrenaline Eboard riding. Please support us with your pledges and tell your family and friends about CARVON. Thank you.
