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. It’s pretty straightforward to install; the most challenging part is drilling holes to mount the battery to your deck. It’s a solid option for those who don’t want to get too techy / involved with a DIY setup but still want some customization freedom.
Team Gee Kit
The Teamgee Electric Skateboard DIY Kit H3 is designed for easy assembly, allowing users to build their own electric skateboard. It’s ideal for those without technical know-how, as it simplifies converting any skate setup into an electric one.
Build Kit Boards
Build Kit Boards specializes in high-performance DIY electric skateboard kits. Their flagship product, the RailCore, is a modular battery and enclosure system that simplifies the board-building process. They offer various customizable kits that ship with all the necessary parts needed.
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.
