Can electric skateboards go downhill?

Yes, electric skateboards can go downhill. Evolve electric skateboards are equipped with regenerative braking systems with adjustable brake and acceleration curves that can help control speed while descending. We have the toughest electric skateboard remote in the market: the Phaze Remote.


Can electric skateboards go uphill?

Yes, absolutely! Electric skateboards are designed to handle inclines to varying degrees depending on their motor power and specifications. More powerful motors and larger battery capacities generally allow for better uphill performance.

The Hadean Series, Evolve most powerful electric skateboard, conquered the steepest street in the world. Baldwin Street is located in New Zealand and boasts a steep incline with a gradient of 35%. The Hadean Carbon All-Terrain did that hill easily as you can see in the video below: 


Can you ride an electric skateboard like a regular skateboard?

Yes. Many electric skateboards have the option to use them as regular skateboards without engaging the motor. But, they are heavier so you won't get the same riding experience without the motors. 


Can an electric skateboard go on grass?

Yes!!! Evolve has all-terrain electric skateboards that come with pneumatic tyres that give the traction you need to go on grass, gravel or dirt.


Is it hard to balance on an electric skateboard?

No, because you don't need to kick push like you would on a regular skateboard, e-skates are easier to ride.


How do you stop speed wobble on an electric skateboard?

If you're getting speed wobbles, slow down, practice your stance, practice in flat terrains and gradually increase your speed as you gain confidence. 


Why does my board wobble when I go fast?

Speed wobbles can occur due to various factors, including uneven weight distribution. Make sure you tighten your trucks and get a new set of bushings with a harder durometer. Ensuring proper setup, adjusting the tightness, and practising a stable riding stance can help reduce speed wobbles.


How do I get better at riding my electric skateboard?

Practice regularly in a controlled environment, like an empty car park, for example, and gradually increase speed as you become more comfortable. Focus on maintaining a stable stance, turning smoothly, and practising braking techniques. It's essential to wear protective gear.


How much weight can an electric skateboard hold?

The weight capacity of electric skateboards varies depending on the model. Typically, most electric skateboards can support riders weighing up to 120kg - you can check our electric skateboard comparison tool to check the max load of each board. 


How do you brake on an electric longboard?

Electric skateboards often have a handheld remote control with a brake function. To brake, gently pull the brake lever on the remote. It's crucial to practice braking at various speeds to get a feel for the responsiveness and to avoid abrupt stops.
