Evolve Hadean vs GTR: which one is the best skateboard for you?
Since Hadean's launch in early July, we have been seen many discussions about the key differences between the Evolve Hadean vs GTR. The launch of the new board is changing the e-mobility landscape worldwide and setting the bar for the industry. It is a whole new product line, with different features.
First important thing: highlighting that Evolve Hadean is not a GTR replacement. They have different features and specs, but both give you the best endless carving feeling. The question is, do you need or want all this extra performance, or will the GTR fit your needs perfectly?
In the infographic below, we draw a comparison between the specs and features of Evolve Hadean and GTR.
Evolve Hadean vs GTR: Similarities
Both boards are around the same size and have the Evolve super carve trucks, enabling you to do tight turns and deep carves. They can be set up as a street or all-terrain board with the ability to add over 100 different wheel and gear combinations.
Also, both boards come in bamboo and carbon fibre deck versions. Each has four-speed modes, optional speed limiters, custom power functionality, 1-year warranty, and of course, the service and support of Evolve as a company.
Evolve Hadean vs GTR: Diferences
Hadean is a more capable board with higher specs and a handful of features the GTR lacks. The Hadean hosts a 43.2V, 16AH, 691.2Wh battery and dual 3000w of power at the motors, while the GTR has a lower voltage 14AH, 504WH, set up and 3000W of power. The GTR has enough punch to get you up the hills, fast bursts of acceleration, and around on the grass and off-road trails. The Hadean can do all those things, but a lot faster and without putting much strain on the electronics system. It is perfect for heavier riders, people riding a lot of inclines, or those who want mind-blowing acceleration.
When it comes to range, the Hadean has a 37% larger capacity battery, so you can expect that much more range. Let's be honest: 65km is a long way to go on urethane wheels. If you are looking for a board to go for casual rides or the work commute, the 50km that the GTR offers will be more than sufficient.
The top speed on the Hadean has been increased by about 30%. Again, think about where you will be riding. Will you have the right pathways to reach 50km/h, and if so, do you really want to be going that fast?
Both models come with the Phaze Remote. This new remote features an improved LED display with a new user interface. The Hadean has inbuilt LED lights to help you be seen and give your board a cool look, and they also serve as an active brake light and are used to indicate the board's status - such as when pairing or at low battery.
Both models have real-time diagnostics on the remote and Explore By Evolve app You will be able to check in on cell and overall voltages as well as temperature readings from the battery, motor controller and motors. It also allows you to customise the light colours on the board to anything you want, and you can choose different light modes such as solid, pulse, fade or rainbow. Another cool firmware feature unique to the Hadean is the auto on/off - the board will not time out. After 5 minutes without use, it goes into sleep mode, which is deactivated by tapping the brake trigger.
Evolve Hadean vs GTR: Which board is best for beginners?
For people new to e-skating, the first thing you need to do before deciding which e-skate to get is to try any board. Jump on a board and make sure you feel comfortable on it.
Hadean is an excellent introduction to s because it's super smooth and stable. It has many features on it over the previous ones, and if you set it proper - soft acceleration and breaking. However, the board is hugely powerful and range, which you can wind back and use as a beginner board if you want to. The Evolve Hadean's performance will keep you on this product for a long time and grow into it as you improve your riding skills.
Evolve Hadean vs GTR: Why is Hadean more expensive than GTR?
Larger motors, more battery cells and new features: Evolve Hadean has much more to it when compared to the GTR. Aside from the physical product itself, the number of hours in the development was massive. Getting a big package of components into a board that was still the same size as the GTR physically was not a small task. That is why Evolve Hadean costs more than the GTR board.
