"The GI's low deck design, Bionic trucks and pneumatic tires make this the best carving electric skateboard ever built. You won't believe the ride - its like the GT Powerboard can read your mind."
E-Glide has been working for a long time on a new design that would incorporate pneumatic tires with low deck height for the ultimate street riding experience.
The design limitations of big wheel powerboards with high decks, excessively wide trucks and tires are acceptable offroad, but diminish the traditional skateboard "feel" on asphalt.
A low riding Powerboard that carves like a dream.
The lower the deck, the lower the rider's center of gravity.
When the center of gravity is lowered, handling and carving ability are enhanced. Compare it to a low profile sports car going around a race track, compared to a jacked up SUV. It's similar with a powerboard. A high deck feels like your standing on a ladder compared to a low deck, which allows you to carve hard and feel confident because of increased maneuverability.
The guys at GroundIndustries, who make the most innovative dirtboards and kiteboards in the world, manufacture a truck called the Bionic Torsion Trucks, arguably the most versatile truck on the market. The Bionic Torsion Truck, with patented T3 technology; allows you to customize your ride for any situation.
These trucks are not cheap but the center pivot torsion truck design, which allows for different stiffness densities (six stages from soft to hard), provides a ride that has to be experienced to be believed. You can even dial in settings for your weight and terrain requirements.
