I recently got a new electric skateboard from Yecoo - the Yecoo GT3 all-terrain electric skateboard. Yecoo GT3 is another new customized all-terrain long skateboard from Yecoo. I have a little bit of a crush on Yecoo because I bought my first electric board from the company, and if you can believe it, Yecoo is on the rise.
A good example is the GT3. Skateboarders who are familiar with the brand Yecoo will know that the GTS or GT are traditional electric skateboards, while the GT3 is a new custom skateboard.
It gives me a very good feeling, the first is its design, simple lines look very comfortable, just like a cup of special tune in the hot summer, there is no complex pattern to disturb your thoughts: Just rush! So this product makes you feel effortless. It doesn't need to be flashy either, but it still offers an amazing riding experience.
As for the performance, yes, the most important thing is the performance of the skateboard, to see if it can make me really exciting. I want to dive into performance testing first, and then we'll come back and take a closer look at the Yecoo GT3's specs and features.
My first ride was 28 kilometers or 17.5 miles.
I weighed 80kg and spent most of my time floating at 35km/h or 21mph, just bumping it into Turbo mode for a hill climb test and top speed testing
The road was flat and mostly flat, but I did slow down and accelerate a lot as I crossed a small street area.
The designated range was between 24 and 29 km and I was impressed by my riding style and weight up to 28 km.
Lighter riders and those who ride more conservatively can easily reach the specified range.
Top speed test
The Yecoo GT3's spec sheet says a top speed of 40kph (25mph), but the motor has a theoretical speed of 42kph (26mph) when you set the throttle on the remote to the maximum with the board upside down.
During the ride, I managed to get to 41 km/h and now looking back the chart may have dropped slightly. But I hit 37 km/h repeatedly without trying, and I don't think I ever really maximized the throttle.
One thing needs to keep in mind about the Yecoo GT3 is that it is a belt-motor board, which means it can provide more power than a hub motor. The acceleration was smooth, and I never felt like I was going to fall off when I supported myself properly.
If you're a beginner or even an experienced e-skater, make sure you have some good protective gear because falls are inevitable and you want to make sure you don't hurt yourself too much so you can get back up and continue skating.
The same is true of braking. They'll bring you to a complete stop at a safe distance, but they're not strong enough to kick you forward, especially when you're ready. As I've always said, only braking can stop you from going as fast as you want.
If you're in a built-up area with a lot of people around you, slow down, cruise and always be ready for someone to walk out in front of you. It happens all the time. Then, when you step out on the open road, let it rip......Within the limits of your local Eskate laws.
The Yecoo GT3 impressed me during the hill-climbing test. I put it in Turbo mode and climbed one of my favorite hills in the area.
Its average slope is 11%, with the steepest part around 20%.
The average speed up the hill is 24 km/h. As it reaches the steepest part of the hillside, it slows to about 20 km/h (12.4 MPH), then accelerates at 27.7 km/h (17.2 MPH) towards the top, where it flattens out only slightly.
I'm very pleased with the GT3's ability to climb hills.
As for the specs, it's a 39-inch bamboo+fiberglass composite deck.
It feels good to stand on this board. It's rigid, but it bends a little bit when you bounce on it.
The Flex absorbs unexpected bumps on the road, but it doesn't affect it the way a trampoline does, and it stays strong. It gives me a lot of confidence to be able to ride at high speeds without wobbling at any speed. Every movement you make with your feet is predictably reflected on the deck. So you always know what's going on underneath your feet.
The wheels are 90 mm 80A, which is a standard but a good set of wheels.
They have solid traction when turning at high speeds, and they stick to the ground when sculpting. They are a big confidence boost.
I really hope CloudWheels releases a donut set for the Yecoo GT3 soon!
For the electronics, it’s running a 10S4P 36V, 8.8Ah, 316Wh lithium-ion battery (another adaptable is 10S4P 36V, 14Ah, 378Wh) with 18650 cells and a 35A max output, powering dual 1000W belt motors. (I tested the 8.8Ah battery this time.)
To keep everything under control, it has an upgraded ESC, which ensures a smooth ride.
There were no bumps or motor shakes, which made me feel very confident about the board. I always feel in control, and that's really important.
The remote is easy to use, plus reverse. The LED screen displays important information and feels good. There's a lot of information on the screen, so you’d better learn to read the instructions.
Overall, I like the Yecoo GT3. This is a very cost-effective electric skateboard, can provide excellent performance.
The Yecoo GT3 is an ideal choice for both first-time buyers and skateboarders, as you can get a high-quality and safe electric board without having to stretch out your arms or legs.
If you need an affordable electronic skateboard for your commute or just something simple for a quick and easy cruise, then it's a great addition to your current lineup. If you like mountain adventures and challenging the grit, the GT3 won't disappoint.
