WowGo has change into a favourite budget-level electrical skateboard producer, because of the corporate’s high-performance but low-cost boards. The WowGo Knight is the model’s newest entry into the market and helps enhance upon an already well-received design.

Round this time final 12 months, I used to be reviewing the $599 WowGo 3 and gushing about how impressive its ride was compared to its low price.

Now I’m again to take a brand new spin on the $459 WowGo Knight (or $429 with coupon code KNIGHT), which is surprisingly an much more succesful board.

WowGo Knight: Plenty of configurations!

The WowGo Knight is extremely configurable. It comes with both a smaller 180 Wh battery or a bigger 288 Wh battery. Each use Samsung cells, however the bigger battery makes use of bigger format cells and stuffs in additional capability (additionally permitting extra energy).

For drivetrains, you may select between belt drive or hub drive.

Personally, I’m a hub motor man. I like the low noise, low upkeep, and easy drivetrain. I don’t have to fret about pebbles in my belt, alignment points, or pulley put on.

However many individuals favor belts for the torque profile in addition to with the ability to use full-size wheels as a substitute of thinner wheel sleeves that switch extra vibration into the deck.

With the WowGo Knight, you get to decide on between the 2 choices, and may even get each to swap backwards and forwards at your whim.

The hub motors are every rated at 560 W for a 1.12 kW whole, whereas the belt motors output 600 W every for a barely increased 1.2 kW whole.
