As a skateboarder, whether you are a beginner or an expert, the thing which you have to face is the choice of the skateboard drive when you choose your skateboard. Generally speaking, the belt connects a wheel to an outrunner motor with a system of belts and gear pulleys. The belt drive system limits free rolling as there is a significant amount of resistance added due to the pulleys, which makes it harder to kick-push. Maintenance surrounding the belt drive such as belt changes due to wear or tear, belt-tensioning, and belt alignment might also scare away people who aren’t necessarily mechanically inclined. The belt drives deliver better torque than equally priced hub systems. This also allows for a wider selection of wheels to swap to and from. Plus, some people like to get creative with their setups and belt drives allow for more creativity in that department.hem in your backpack at a moments notice.
After learning the pros and cons of the belt-driven skateboard, you can start to choose your own belt skateboard. At present, except for Boosted，the high-end belt skateboard brand, the top ten belt skateboards on the market are as follows:
Yecoo GT electric skateboard is a brand new design in recent years, which is focus on details of improving performance of skateboard. It is increasingly loved by most skateboarding enthusiasts in US. As a belt skateboard, except for more flexible torque of motor, and more powerful power, the Yecoo GT is characterized by its 2-in-1 mode, which can switch between urban road and off road. Yecoo GT Skateboard offers two different types of wheels that are one of the key factors that can support both street riding and all-terrain riding. 6-inch off road wheel is made of non-inflatable silicone tires. Soft silicone material feels so comfortable for cycling that you do not have to worry about the puncture and repair. The 83mm PU wheel is used on flat road, which can provide better shock absorbing effect at high speed.
In addition, the deck of the board uses 8 layers of Canadian Maple plus baking paint. Almost everyone knows that Canadian maple wood is compact, uniform in texture, good in polishing, and occasionally has a light green-gray mineral texture that is easy to apply. Using it as a panel for skateboards, not only makes the skateboard more beautiful, but also makes the skateboard have higher strength and durability. In the same way, the other performance of the skateboard is also very amazing, the samsung 11Ah battery makes the cruise range reach 21miles, the samsung 15Ah battery makes the cruise range reach 25miles.

WowGo 3X is WowGo's latest skateboard in 2019 and can be seen as a full upgrade to WowGo 3. But the difference between 3 and 3X is the motor. WowGo 3X is belt motor that is 2*600W rated power high-quality and high-precision. And the belt motor has less noise than ordinary belt electric skateboard.
Similarly, WowGo 3X still made of bamboo and fiber glass deck and Paris truck, the wheels are also unique 90*62mm eccentric design and a wider Soft PU wheel. However, for the battery, it is totally new 12S2P Samsung battery, which has higher voltage(50.4V) and more powerful output. And it could reduce 30% heat. Thus，the max speed is 24 mph which can be fast accelerate to on the Turbo mode because of the Hobbywing V2.0 ESC. Further, the new design case has smaller size, simple and decent effective structure design for ESC cooling.
In short, WowGo 3X is a very good quality electric skateboard. the Samsung battery, Hobbywing V2.0 ESC and Pairs trucks. Beside, the remote is also the LCD display to easily obtainning the information of speed, battery and mode. But,the weak of 3X is the power is not strong enough. For a belt motor electric skateboard, the power of the motor can continue to increase.

The Ownboard W2 is characterized by its low price and still impressive properties. It comes with a Hobbywing ESC, which many other eBoards as Wowgo and Backfire also use. This ESC is special because it allows the eBoard to accelerate and brake more smoothly and ensures better control which has been mentioned above. The quite powerful engines of Ownboards W2 are the most significant change compared to the previous model (W1S). With the double belt drive the W2 eBoard can reach a maximum speed of up to 42km/h (26mph). The acceleration is slightly slower than in the comparable Boosted Board but the maximum speed of Onboard's W2 is higher and brings with it the Boosted Board quickly back on. Given the price difference from Ownboard W2 Boosted Stealth this is more than a fair compromise. In addition, the Ownboard has W2 sufficient torque to even gradients of up to 30% to cope with. At a belt driven electric skateboard, the motors are mounted outside and transfer the power through belts and gears to the wheels. Thereby, the electric board has more torque with better transmission ratio with the same power. In addition, solid rubber wheels will be used, which allows for better absorption of shocks. Another advantage resides in the interchangeability of the rollers, whereby different role types and sizes may be used. A maximum range of up to 25 km is ensured by the large lithium-ion battery with Samsung cells. It was not saved at the wrong point, because the use of high-quality battery cells with counts among the most important criteria to determine the quality of an electric skateboard.
The Ownboard W2 deck consists of 2-layer bamboo and 6-layer of maple and measures 38 * 9.05 inches. The integrated handle, it is also perfect for carrying and for daily use. Especially a lot of flexibility receives this electric skateboard by its flex design and solid rubber wheels, which is why the driving experience is really great. How much flex for personal driving style, however, is optimal, also depends very much on the individual characteristics and preferences of the driver. When the axis is indeed to standards, and this is perfectly adequate. Also included is a LED backlight, which is a particularly useful feature especially for "Night Rides”.
