Building your own electric skateboard is a lot easier than in previous years. While you’ll get the most bang for your buck buying a complete setup, you might want the freedom to customize.

These kits are for those who don’t want to get too DIY technical but still want some freedom.

The Maxfind M5 Electric Skateboard Kit allows you to convert just about any setup into electric.

The Revel Kit is one of the most popular custom kits out there. It’s extremely user-friendly to install and is direct-drive, which allows you to use wheels of your choice. I enjoy Orangatang, so I matched my Revel with their 85mm 80a Caguamas.
