The new Bamboo GTR is the latest bamboo board from Evolve and it is essentially a replacement for the older Bamboo GTX. It has been completely redesigned from the ground up and although it looks similar it's actually a brand new beast.
The Bamboo GTR deck has a brand new construction featuring 3 layers of vertically laminated bamboo ply with 2 layers of fibreglass. It's a new shape and has more flex than the old GTX model.
It features the same style Super Carve trucks but they are now forged so much stronger.
Evolve 7" pneumatic all terrain wheels which are awesome on rough terrain including grass, dirt tracks and can go up drop-kerbs without too much bother
The bearings are super fast and super smooth precision ceramic bearings.
The board features silicon seals and protective internal cases to help towards water resistance. There are new durable water-resistant power cables and the controller, battery PCB, BMS and motors have all been treated with a water-resistant surface spray so the board is now a bit more all-weather than it's predecessor.
There are Dual USB Ports which you can use to to power external accessories (Like the brand new LED Prism Strips).
One of the biggest upgrades is the new Powerflex Battery which has been 2 years in development. It's a 10s4p / 18650 samsung battery seated in a flexible case. You can also get a travel friendly Sony 4.2AH 152 watt hour battery which is Airline Friendly! (with airline permission you can take 2 on per person in your carry on luggage).
There is a brand new motor controller that now uses Bluetooth communication (rather than wifi).
The R2 remote has been upgraded with larger battery and a powersave feature.
The GTR Motors have now been upgraded with stronger motor shafts, internal heat sensors & air-vents.
Speed / Distance
The GTR All-Terrain Street has a top speed of 36kmh / 22mph and a range of 30km / 19miles. The travel battery which is sold seperately has exactly the same top speed (36kmh / 22mph) but a range of 10km.
These have been tested on hills with inclines in excess of 37% (but the official line is 30%)
The Carbon GTR All Terrain weighs in at 11.3kg/24.9lbs with standard battery
A brand new App is coming out called 'Explore by Evolve' and features loads of cool options like the ability to track your rides, a worldwide leader board and the ability to dial in your own power curve to the way you like to ride. The App is scheduled to launch in June.
WARNING: The Evolve GTR Series is a high performance electric skateboard. It is strongly advised that children under 14 years, or new to electric skateboarding, operate the boards under supervision with full safety gear including a helmet. FAST and GTR modes offers performance capabilities not suitable for beginners AND can allow the rider to get in situations that may increase risk in operation. ie: GTR mode will allow the board to climb extremely steep hills that will be dangerous to ride back down, even when using the brake. While programming is in place to limit climbing of dangerous inclines, the rider must understand the power this board can offer must be respected for safe use.

********Amendment due to current COVID-19 situtation********
Following government advice our store is now back OPEN! We are currently delivering goods within the UK only (shutting down our European and Worldwide shipping for the time being).
We offer FREE Standard delivery on all orders (£50 and over), and then the option to upgrade to Express Delivery (1-2 Days) if required.
For shipping we are currently using Parcelforce & Royal Mail and they have both changed their delivery procedure in relation to signing for and receiving items in the UK (please see below)
"In order to protect both our people and customers as much as possible, we will not be handing over our hand-held devices to customers to capture electronic signatures. Our drivers will instead log the first and last name of the person accepting the item, then put 'XP1' in the signature field, and we will record the geolocation of the delivery. This will apply to all deliveries that normally require a signature.
If recipients are unable to come to the door or are self-isolating, we will post a customer contact card in the normal way, advising of other ways the recipient can arrange to get their item. For example, by getting a friend or family member (who is not resident with someone who is self-isolating) to collect the parcel from their local Parcelforce depot or Post Office branch, as specified on the card. They will need to bring along the card we left and a form of ID in the name of the person the item is addressed to. Examples of suitable ID are specified on the card."
