WHAT IS MOUNTAINBOARDING ?
Mountainboarding is a crossover sport descended from snowboarding and skateboarding. It’s snowboarding without the snow, or from another perspective, it’s skateboarding beyond the smooth pavements and slick skateparks of the city.
Mountainboarding allows you to ride anywhere - grass fields, dirt tracks, neighbourhood parks, city streets - everywhere is your skatepark.
Mountainboarding is generally a downhill sport and while some boards come fitted with a brake, all riders should learn how to slide to a stop. Mountainboards are also used in combination with kites or surf wings, using the power of the wind to propel the board across flat surfaces such as hard-packed sand or grassy parks.
WHAT IS ELECTRIC SKATEBOARDING ?
Electric skateboarding is endless carving, riding without having to push. Driven by integrated motors and controlled by wireless remotes, electric skateboards let you enjoy the ride
without breaking a sweat.
Electric skateboards are normally belt-driven or hub-driven. Belt-driven boards create greater torque and are more suitable for climbing hills and riding off-road, whereas hub-driven motors are quieter, easier to maintain and produce less resistance on the drive wheel(s), allowing the board to perform like a normal skateboard when the battery loses its charge.
