The BKB Duo is an easy to assemble, high-performance DIY electric skateboard kit that includes all of the parts, tools, and tutorials required for assembly. Learn how every part of an electric skateboard works by assembling it yourself! There is no better feeling than riding something YOU built.
We completely redesigned the kit from the ground up to be a better looking, more reliable, and highly versatile platform to build your dream board.
How easy is it to assemble (V1)?
Whats Included (Outdated V1):
The first electric skateboard remote designed to be comfortable
12 hour battery life
0.95in Screen for live data
Channel hopping technology for extreme signal strength
TPU coated throttle for comfort and grip
Our drivetrain is designed in house and is completely modular. You can use hundreds of different wheel types. The board will come stock with Flywheel pulleys, so any wheel with a genuine/clone flywheel core will work (ABEC11, Cloudwheels, etc). With a swap of wheel pulleys you can use any wheel with a Kegel core (Otang, Hyperdrive, Boa’s, TB110, etc). We have also designed a 6" Pneumatic wheel that is easily swapped and allows you to go over much more rugged terrain. All of this can be swapped in and out in less than 4 minutes.
We took special consideration when designing the deck. A lot of our customers modify the boards to go 40+ mph, so it needs to be stable at speed. Our Tru-Flex deck will be stable at these speeds and will return to center quickly after going over an obstacle. This means that the board will flex downwards, upwards, and then return to center (not modulate up and down).
5mm Foam Griptape helps absorb road vibrations
Optional drop through mounting. The standard motor mounts will not work by drop through, but the option is there
BKB Xenith V2 ESC
This allows you to customize exactly how the board rides. Switching remotes, motors, batteries, etc has never been easier! It also allows you to tune the acceleration/brake curve exactly how you want. We send it stock with an aggressive curve, meaning you can quickly get up to speed and smoothly stop just as fast. However, if you're a more casual rider, you can change a few settings to have a boosted like throttle response. This is only a brief mention of what the VESC is capable of, there is so much more!
Dual 3000W Motors
Our dual 3000W motors provide a combined maximum of 6000W at peak power. Needless to say, you’ll have plenty of torque to beat any Chinese board off the line, and climb any hill you can find.
Rapid Charger - Decrease the charging time by ~40%
Please choose the appropriate plug for your country (only options shown are available). The charger works on 110/220V input
Xenith Bluetooth Module for Live Metrics
This bluetooth module will allow you to view real-time data, track rides, check battery voltage, etc. You can also use this to wirelessly program the VESC (capabilities mentioned above). There are iOS, Apple Watch and Android apps available (not designed by us). XMatic for iPhone and VESC Tool for Android.
By purchasing this accessory, we will pre-install the Bluetooth module into the Xenith V2 ESC (under the silicone cover).
Belt Guards - Extend belt life and prevent pebbles from getting caught in the belt!
Get 50% off replacement belts for the lifetime of the board by purchasing the belt guards!
20T Speed Upgrade - Include 2x larger 20T motor pulleys and 2x 275M belts
This increases the board's top speed at the slight expense of torque. Please see this chart to see the final top speed for you wheel size and pulley combo
Kegel Wheel Pulleys - Includes 2x 40T Kegel Wheel Pulleys and 2x F608ZZ Bearing
Allows you to use any wheel with a Kegel Core (Otang, TB110, etc)
Spare Belt - If purchased, includes 1x spare 265M Belt
If you need a different size, please order from this link
What's the difference between the BKB Duo and BKB Duo Type R?
The only difference between the Duo and the Type R is the battery. They share the exact same drivetrain, deck, and enclosure. The battery in the Type R is a higher voltage and larger capacity. This means it will have slightly higher performance and you will be able to ride for approximately three times as long. More specifically the Type R will accelerate harder and and go slightly faster.
