Handmade from 100% Carbon fibre, the GTR deck beautifully conceals the electric system which is powered by our new patent pending Power Flex battery technology and the best 18650 lithium ion battery cells available. Providing you with real-world range of up to 50km per charge, this board will turn any road or path into the endless wave of your dreams. This coupled with Bluetooth communication is a game changer for Evolve skateboards as it provides instant power and ultra smooth acceleration and braking performance, placing the ultimate in intuitive riding control in your hands. With 3000 watts of twin brushless sensored motor power driving our new made in USA Evolve GT 97mm inline race formula wheels, this triple matte black beast is like a panther unleashed.
With an undeniably sexy low profile and a concave deck built for those who like to be in control, corners will turn into apexes, open stretches into runways, and wide open paths will make your list of favourite powder runs. A badass weapon with a high-tech vibe, the Carbon GTR Street is a stealth predator that likes to eat hills for breakfast. With a gripy super smooth ride you’ll have the ultimate in control and stability.
The Evolve Carbon GTR Street offers even more flexibility for the riding enthusiast than ever before with a new airline friendly swappable battery option for those who want to take their Evolve boards with them when travelling. Now you can also track and share your rides and compete against the world wide community on the new Explore by Evolveapp, along with over the air updates for IOS and Android phones. Unlike other boards on the market the Carbon GTR Street is compatible with our All Terrain Kit which completely changes the feeling by opening up a world of new paths for you to explore.
The Remote and App
The Evolve Carbon GTR Street offers more riding modes than ever before allowing riders of any level to safely enjoy the product and have the ability to adjust your riding mode while riding to suit conditions and maximize efficiency. Use ‘ECO’ mode for easy control and a safe top speed, perfect for beginners and those riders wanting a relaxed ride with longest ride times. Use ‘PRO’ mode to whizz past traffic and turn your commute into your daily adrenaline rush hour, and if you dare, switch to GTR mode to unleash insane power and acceleration with the ability to climb hills of up to 25% gradient. For those that want a power curve that is different to ECO/PRO/GTR modes, select CUST (custom) mode on the remote, then open up the Explore by Evolve app and dial in the power curve to suit your riding style. In this mode you can adjust the power to be weaker or even stronger than the stock speed mode settings that come with the R2 remote.
Heat protection will be activated when the motors or battery are extremely hot. Different riding styles can effect heat in different ways. For example, if riding on grass with consistent speed changes, for the board to have enough power to move the rider it must use maximum current which in turn heats up the motors very quickly which may cause the board to go into heat protection mode. If the rider mostly rides fast speeds on hard surfaces with small amounts of grass and hills for longer periods of time then the entire electric system heats up more evenly and will most likely not reach the heat protection modes. The motors do cool down very quickly by riding efficiently (holding a speed on hard surfaces) or letting it rest for a few minutes. The heat protection is necessary to protect the board from being over worked.
The GTR board will be its fastest when the battery has full charge. As you use the skateboard the battery is losing power which results in a reduction in top speed during the ride. Top speed will slowly reduce as the battery loses power.
The standard 14AH GTR battery cannot be taken onto any plane due to being too large. However, the 4.2AH travel battery (151.2 watt hours) can be taken onto a plane with airline approval prior to boarding. The travel battery can only be stored in carry-on luggage, carry a maximum of 2 pieces per person and you must notify the airline during check-in (or in advance) that you have spare batteries in your possession. Our travel battery is 151.2 watt hours in size and this fits within the 100 – 160 watt hours range.
Unfortunately, the Bamboo and Carbon motor controllers and batteries are not compatible to switch between one another as they have different connectors.
Samsung 35e cells have an expected life span of 500 and then a capacity drop of 40% after this time.
No, the GTR board is not water proof. Having said that, we have made every effort to seal up the electrical enclosures to prevent the event of being caught out in the rain when riding. Riding in wet conditions is very dangerous due to slippery surfaces and can put stress on the wheel bearings and motors, not to mention you get wet and dirty when riding.
No. The GTR charging port is shaped like the letter D making it impossible to use any previous Evolve charger. The GTR charger cannot fit any older Evolve board due to being a D shaped connector. The reason we changed the connector shape is to prevent people using non evolve chargers and potentially damaging the power flex battery.
No. The GTR electrical components are a different shape and size and cannot fit our earlier board designs.
The Bluetooth R2 remote can only communicate with the GTR Bluetooth motor controllers. The GT boards use WIFI communication when operating, the GTR uses Bluetooth communication when operating. If these remotes are swapped then the remote cannot pair to the motor controller.
The GTR motors have custom water proof connectors and can only connect to the GTR Bluetooth motor controllers, they will not assemble to the GT motor controllers.
The GTR series boards is like the GT but on steroids! The GT skateboards were designed back in 2014, the GTR is the 2019 model. Every part of the GTR board has been improved from build quality/strength, raw materials, electrical components, software and ride quality. The GTR uses Bluetooth technology along with new patent pending battery technology which delivers an extremely smooth power delivery performance and is exhilarating to ride!
