Best Electric Skateboard Accessories of 20213 weeks, 5 days ago | 1 Replies
It’s always fun to buy a new electric board. There’s nothing like opening a box and hitting the road for the first time on a new board. But finding the best electric board accessories is also an undeniably important part of the process of buying a new electronic board. Too many riders underestimate how much difference some of the innovative accessories on the market today can make. The uses and applications of skateboard accessories can vary widely. Some accessories can help improve the actual riding experience of the device, while others can make your circuit boards easier to transport. No matter what your needs are, our 2020 Best Electric Skateboard Accessories Guide should help you find the accessories to make your riding even better!
While light skateboards are often ideal for commuters or travelers, sometimes the perfect skateboard can be a little heavy. Fortunately, the electronic skateboard industry is full of companies that specialize in the design and production of skateboard-friendly backpacks. You can read a more detailed guide to electronic whiteboard backpacks here. Keep in mind that a regular backpack may not be sufficient or convenient to carry the electric longboard. A good skateboard backpack will provide you with a place close to your body to hold the device firmly against your back, close to your center of gravity. Placing the scooter in a regular backpack minimizes the impact of the pack on your carrying capacity, since a regular backpack isn’t designed to carry such bulky equipment.
Crashboards are an often underrated accessory that many riders add to boards. You should be aware that not all riders need a crash board. If you are always cautious and rarely encounter the obstacles that your device might encounter, the need for collision protection is likely to be minimal. However, we generally recommend that all riders can benefit from bash protection. As the name suggests, a skateboard is a small piece of equipment attached to the end of a skateboard to prevent damage to the board when it hits obstacles.
Collision hood can be made of a variety of materials. Obviously, a heavy thud protector can be frustrating, as hitting a hard surface with another hard object can be jarring. Look for a collision shield that has very little protection but is flexible enough to absorb the impact of hitting a surface or obstacle.
Although bearings are generally considered replacement parts, they also serve as a necessary accessory to most electric skateboards. A set of high quality overhead bearings can significantly improve wheel performance and control ability, which is very important to increase your ride pleasure. For all details about bearings, see the Eskate Bearing Guide here. This guide Outlines some of the best electronic slide bearings for 2020. We provide you with detailed information about Rocket Slide Bearings, Bone Swiss Bearings and Zealous Ceramic Bearings, three brands we consider industry leaders in bearing quality and performance.
To find the right bearing for your skateboard, read about the latest technologies and the most popular brands in the industry. Skateboard technology is constantly developing, and the old bearings are definitely no exception. Keep abreast of the latest developments in bearing technology to find out the best brand for you.
Like bearings, bushings are an integral part of the board riding experience at the most technical level. The bushing can isolate vibration to keep the circuit board running stably. Poor bushing usually means that the wheels will shake and vibrate as you cross the ground, especially on Zaky and terrain. Obviously, having a good set of bushings to minimize vibration is a key element of a more enjoyable riding experience. Despite their simple appearance, there are many effective bushings. Our Best Buoy Bushing Guide for 2020 should provide you with a more comprehensive overview of the many elements of bushing effectiveness.
However, as a basic rule of thumb, remember to consider which replacement bushings to buy for your scooter. After all, a sturdy set of bushings can mean the difference between a smooth ride and an erratic, uninteresting experience.
An alternative, faster charger is a great way to get around a limited battery power. If you want to ride your device to and from work but only have enough juice to get to the workplace but not back, charging during the day could make even a smaller battery work. But if your skateboard comes standard with a slow charging device, this can become more difficult to do. Finding a solid fast charger should not be super hard, considering that most charger manufacturers clearly state the power and speed of their charger on the official product website. You do need to make sure that the charger you purchase doesn’t transmit more power than your board’s battery can handle. This could cause technical problems within the battery itself.
Most electric scooter batteries make many airliners unworkable. The FDA and the federal government prohibit passengers from carrying batteries larger than 160 Wh. If your battery capacity is greater than 100 Wh, you will need to check with your airline before placing the device on the plane. Read more about the limits of electric skateboarding and air travel in our Air Travel Guide.
Many skateboard companies offer models with flight-safety batteries or batteries less than 160 or 100 Wh. Some companies even sell their own flight batteries, which can be used with multiple types of boards. If you plan to check or carry batteries with you when you travel by air, be sure to consider purchasing flight batteries. When carrying a skateboard on an airplane, the weight of the model doesn’t matter. The size of the battery is a major limiting factor.
Elbow protection seems simple, right? They need straps to secure the device to the elbow. You’ll also need a strong protective cover to prevent contact with the ground or debris in case of a collision, and a softer fabric inside to cushion and protect body parts. But actually, there are a lot of design nuances that contribute to the overall success and value of a sturdy set of elbow pads. If you want to do a lot of research on this very changing topic, our Eskate Elbow Pad Guide should be a useful resource.
Pads range from budget to very expensive. If you are a beginner, we recommend that no effort be spared in the integrity and reliability of the elbow pad, as safety devices can really save your skin in the event of a fall at very high speeds.
Half Shell Helmets
len off an electric skateboard, or even any fast-moving vehicle, should know the importance of knee pads. It’s not just about avoiding the dreaded skin on your knees. Falling on fragile knees can seriously impair your ability to move, especially as you get older. Kneepads protect your knees from injury if you fall. Read more about the best knee pads and elbow pads in the relevant guide here. Killer Kneepads are particularly respected in the e-skating community, and here we take a look at 187 of them to find out their pros and cons. Be sure to use sturdy knee pads for safety before using new boards on the road
Not enough electronic skateboarders realize the safety importance that electronic skateboard lights can provide. If you’re riding on a sunny day and there’s no developed light on the front of the back of the board, obviously you’ll be fine. However, most of the e-skating community enjoys the occasional midnight ride. Riders who live in very hot parts of the world can really benefit from being away from the sun on cool nights. We describe electronic lamps in more detail in the Eskate Lighting Guide. We prefer to use Shredlights SL-200 lights which can be connected to the front and back ends of the skateboard to ensure that other riders, drivers and even pedestrians can see you
The specially designed grip strap is an excellent way to personalize your electric board while increasing the flexibility of the process. Many professional tapes come with exquisite designs that can make your circuit board look great. Tape is also very important. Good quality tape helps you get a better grip on the equipment deck, thus avoiding the risk of slipping off or losing control of the electronic skateboard.
Skate T Tool
Skate T Tool is a special-purpose Tool primarily used for tightening or loosening trucks. In addition, the device is available to help you when trying to replace bearings, adjust or install bushings, adjust belts or replace wheels. If you plan to own and use an electric skateboard on a regular basis, you’ll always need to carry specialized tools, such as Skate T Tool. Some companies sell the tool separately, while other retailers may also offer riders the opportunity to buy a variety of tools in larger packages. If you are planning a long ride, it is recommended that you take Skate T with you in case any problems arise that need to be adjusted at any time.
The truck is another accessory that can double as an important part of board performance. The truck mainly affects the stability and control of the skateboard. Reverse kingpin trucks are the most popular choice on modern electric skateboards. These trucks provide steady stability at high speeds and can be sculpted well. Dual pin trucks (DKPs) have a lower inclination and can achieve higher speeds, but they have higher engraving capability. Vans (shown below) are also common, especially on off-road equipment, as they offer flexibility and stability on uneven roads without losing control.
Frankly, it would take a complete guide to tell you everything you need to know about electric scooters. Luckily, we’ve already written it! Please visit our Eskate Truck Guide for details on how trucks affect your trip, and all the trucks available there for you to choose from.
