We are big fans of Evolve Electric skateboards here at The Board Basement so when we hear about the release of the new GTR we were obviously excited! The All new Evolve GTR is now here and with us and ready to take on what you can put in front of it. The new GTR boasts a longer extended battery life, interchangable batteries (sold seperately and now with travel battery options), a bigger range for longer journeys, faster speeds and additional USB ports for other cool stuff all make the new Evolve GTR a winnner.
This is the Bamboo 2 in 1 version of the GTR which comes with street wheels and AT all terrain wheels to give you both options. The wheels and belts are interchangable and this way you can have a street setup for commuting and an AT setup for when you want to go adventuring! The Bamboo deck is strong made up of 3 ply bamboo and 2 layers of fibreglass. This gives the board some flex for a true longboard feel.
All Evolve skateboards are dual motor belt driven design. Evolve use 1500w motors with the capability of going up to 26mph and a range of up to 19 miles and can take on up to a 30% gradient slope. These speeds and ranges depend on your AT or Street wheel setup, the AT wheels create more drag so range is shorter and speeds are slightly lower (22) but the street setup should acheive these speeds and ranges depending on your weight and settings.
New for the GTR series is a brand new app which allows you to choose speed settings, adjust power curves and customise your settings to tailor your GTR experience to your needs.
Beware of cheaper options, the GTR knows whats up!
