In 2016, Enertion was first to market with a kicktail deck, made using carbon fibre molded over a foam core, featuring an integrated components cavity specifically made for builders of electric skateboards. This deck was used in the original Raptor which to this day is still one of the lightest & highest-performance boards ever made. The Raptor was the worlds first ever semi-mass-produced pre-built board using VESC based motor controllers & large 63mm Diameter Motors.
In 2017, The Raptor 2 was born, Successfully funded on Kickstarter, the worlds most powerful direct-drive electric skateboard.
