CARVON EVO 4WD

CARVON completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the development of the EVO 4WD board. The EVO 4WD is a beast of a board, with 3000 watts of combined power and a top speed of over 30 mph.

The EVO 4WD differs from the 2WD variant in that it incorporates a unique “X-Motor” system in the rear wheels. The “X-Motor” is actually a single physical motor connected to both the rear wheels. The wheels are attached with one-way bearings, meaning that they can spin faster than the motor output. This is important because when a skateboard turns, the outside wheels turn faster than the inside wheels. Additionally, this allows for the EVO 4WD to use the “X-Motor” for added torque, and switch over to the dual direct-drive wheels at top speed without the “X-Motor” holding the system back.
