Concrete Surfers: Electric Skateboard Speed Wobble Causes And How To Avoid It

Electric Skateboard Speed Wobble:
Causes and how to avoid it
by Chris (Concrete Surfers)

It was dark, I was going 20 mph on my Boosted Mini, when suddenly I headed down a slope I didn’t even see. The board started trembling under my feet. It was the dreaded “death” wobble. A fall and a few scratches (plus a ruined backpack) later, I was determined to learn how to avoid this from happening again. So how do you avoid speed wobble from snowballing into a big ugly fall?

The cheapest and quickest way to mitigate the speed wobble with your electric skateboard is to tighten your rear truck a bit more than the front one. A larger wheelbase also helps as well as a lower degree baseplate (drop through trucks rather than top mount). However your stance and skill level has a lot more to do with avoiding and dealing with speed wobbles.

As you you might have guessed, dealing with “death” wobble is not as simple as it seems. I mean there might be a reason why they call it death wobble right?

SKATEBOLT Tornado Review:
A Fast, Powerful Commuter
by Chris

The SKATEBOLT Tornado is one of our favorite electric longboards for a variety of reasons. For one thing, it comes at a practically unbeatable price point, given the real power and great features of the board.

But beyond the great price, it’s simply packed with every feature you could hope for in an electric skateboard: long battery life, high top speed, ability to propel up considerable hills, and even taillights for safe night riding.

With all of these features (and even more) in mind, we think this is one of the best options for anyone looking for a commuter board that is reliable and can get them to and from their destinations quickly and without any fear of running out of battery life.

Electrek.co Review Of Electric Bike Co Model R

What happens when you mix cruiser bike styling with a mountain bike fork and motorcycle-level hydraulic brakes? Oh, and when you slap on a 1,250 W peak motor for good measure? You get the Model R from the aptly-named Electric Bike Company.

I visited the company’s hometown of Newport Beach, California to see this new e-bike in person and put it through its paces.
