Skateboards are far from new, but electric skateboards have become more popular over the past few years as an alternative means of transportation. Evolve Skateboards has just unveiled the Hadean electric skateboard that offers four times the performance and 37% more battery capacity than its previous GTR series.

Available in street, all-terrain, or 2-in-1 configurations, the Hadean Series comes with your choice of a carbon fibre or bamboo deck. In the case of the Hadean Carbon, Evolve claims it is the world’s first chassis style frame crafted from forged carbon fibre and includes air vents to help keep the working electronics cool.
“Since the successful launch of our Carbon GTR series in 2019, we have looked to advance our product into a board that produces greater performance while maintaining the sleek, integrated electrical design the GTR is famous for. Improved performance required increased size of the battery and motors and this innovation overcame a size constraint that could improve the users’ control and riding experience.”Jeff Anning, Founder of Evolve Skateboards
With 21700mAh lithium-ion battery cells in its 16AH battery and dual 3000-watt electric motors, the Hadean Carbon can get up to 31 mph and has a range of up to 43 miles on a single charge for the street version and up to 26mph and 24.8 miles for the all-terrain model with its beefier tires. The skateboard also comes with a dual-trigger remote for intuitive braking and acceleration. Real-time data is also displayed on the remote’s full-colour LCD display. The companion app lets you tweak the Hadean board, including adjusting power, acceleration, braking curves, the onboard lights, and more.
