Why choose Evolve Skateboards NZ?

Next Prev Why choose Evolve Skateboards NZ?

Evolve Skateboards was born in Australia in 2008 through sheer passion and obsession for finding the link between snowboarding, surfing and all things carving on land and is one of the longest standing electric skateboarding companies. 

 

We have been innovating electric skateboard technology for 12 years and was the first company to bring premium boards to the market. We have to lead the way in creating a new generation of high-performance electric skateboards designed for carving and cruising, not just to be used as a last-mile of transport but a sleek machine that will make you want to take a long way home. Years have been spent meticulously considering, designing, testing and optimising every part of our boards, with all our parts custom made, something we still do to this day. You will not find our parts or components on any other electric skateboard.

 

Why choose Evolve Skateboards NZ #1: PERFORMANCE

Our boards will out-carve any other electric skateboard on the market by miles. If you want to surf or snowboard on land, then look no further. Our custom made super carve truck can be dialled into any form of riding style, from deep carves to sidewalk surfing to insane speed riding. Further tweaking is possible with a variety of bushes that are compatible with our boards.

We use large, powerful lithium-ion batteries which assist in ride times of up to 50km/30miles so you’ll never suffer from range anxiety. Our GTR street boards have even powered up the steepest street in the world!

 

Why choose Evolve Skateboards NZ #2: DESIGN

With bamboo and carbon deck options to suit any taste, the main feature that sets Evolve apart is our 2in1 truck system design. This makes every Evolve board extremely versatile with wheel and gear customisation that suits any riding condition and preference. We were the first and are still the only electric skateboard that can be easily changed from a street board to an all-terrain board in minutes. We were also the first to create a carbon fibre deck that encloses the battery and electrics, which won us two international design awards. With a design philosophy to create boards that embody a minimalist design packed with performance, we are always innovating and bringing new product features and designs to the market.

Why choose Evolve Skateboards NZ #4: COMMUNITY

From the annual Evolve Riders World Cup to group rides around the world, our community has grown immensely in the past few years.

Our YouTube series ‘Evolve Weekly’ regularly features videos submitted from riders around the world. ‘Evolve Insider’ was launched in mid-2017, and through both global and regional editions, shares rider profiles, news, product updates, tips, and featured riders.

With many Evolve riders groups being created by customers online and in locations around the world you can connect with like-minded people to share your favourite places to ride, tips, questions and love of electric skateboarding.
