What’s the difference between a bike helmet and skate helmet?

A common question which people ask is, “What’s the difference between a bike helmet and skate helmet?” Aside from the obvious difference in looks, bike and skate helmets are actually functionally different in several ways, and you would like to make sure if you buy the right type of helmet for riding your electric skateboard.

Physical Coverage

One major difference between bike helmets and skate helmets is actually related to their distinct designs. Skate helmets, which are traditionally round and smooth, cover the back of your head. This is because they are designed to protect against falls that skateboarders commonly take, where they might land on the back of their head. In contrast, bikers rarely fall of the back of their bikes.

For an electric skateboarder, I would recommend getting a helmet that covers the back of your head like a traditional skate helmet does. Because your board has the ability to accelerate quickly, you could be thrown off and backwards if you misjudge how much throttle you’re applying.

Impact Resistance

The other major difference between a regular skate helmet and a bike helmet is the ability to protect against different types of impact. Traditional, non-certified, skate helmets are designed with a softer foam shell that protects against multiple small impacts. In contrast, a bike helmet is made out of a hard EPS foam that is designed to take one large impact and break, after which you need to replace the helmet.

Though traditional skate helmets, designed for normal skateboards and Electric longboards, are often not certified, you should get a skate helmet that uses the same hard EPS foam a bike helmet has, that still protects the back of your head. You can easily tell which skate helmets are designed this way by making sure they are CPSC certified.

Always wear the helmet when you ride skateboard

What helmet should I buy?

All of the helmets I’ve listed in my helmet guide are CPSC certified and designed to protect the back of your head. As long as you ensure you have a certified helmet that also protects the back of your head, you will be much safer on your electric skateboard.

The Best Electric Skateboard Backpacks For Your Board

Usually you don’t want to carry your electric skateboard long distances by hand, and a board backpack can make it much easier to do so. With a board backpack, you can also feel free to carry your board to work during a rainy morning and still ride it back home when it’s sunnier in the evening. There are several options for electric skateboard backpacks that can carry a 15 lb+ longboard:

Burton Day Hiker Pro 28L

One secret to keep in mind when you look for a board backpack is that snowboard backpacks usually work pretty well. Burton, a well-known snowboard equipment brand, has a wide variety of snowboard backpacks that work well. The Day Hiker Pro 28L is one such example, with a wide variety of colors, ample room for other gear like wrist guards and knee pads, and a vertical board carry system.

Koowheel Longboard Bag The best electric longboard bag

Koowheel Electric Longboard Bag is a fairly distinct and popular option to carry both regular and electric longboards. I personally highly recommend this one as well as it is very welcomed by most consumers. Besides, due to Christmas coming, Koowheel Christmas 8600mAh ( Double power) Replaceable Battery Limited Edition E-board is on sale.  Just only 20 days. Needless to say it is a special gift for new and old customers. 圣诞-1

You can buy the Koowheel Longboard and bag direct from the official website.

Unity Skateboard Backpack QQ图片20171206155424

The Unity Skateboard backpack is a slightly smaller alternative to the larger Burton and Dakine bags. It supports skateboards up to 15 lbs, so it’s not designed for the heavier boards like the Evolve Bamboo GT. However, with boards like the Boosted Board Dual+ (2nd Gen) that come in just under the 15 lb limit, the Unity Skateboard Backpack will work just fine.

Evolve Backpack QQ图片20171206155434

For Bamboo GT or Carbon GT owners (or, proud Bamboo GTX early adopters), Evolve offers a branded skateboard backpack designed to hold their boards. It has standard features like a water bottle pouch (though, theirs is insulated), and reflective logos so cars can see you at night. You can order the Evolve Backpack directly from their web store.

Koowheel 2nd generation e-skateboard endurance test

IMG_20170809_085727_HDR

Recently, many customers ask us endurance about Koowheel 2nd generation E-skateboard, is it really can bring us surprise?

Now let us look at one of Koowheel buyer’s review about Second Generation Electric Skateboard endurance. Details as bellow:

Due to Koowheel 2nd generation electric skateboard Kooboard is the first electric skateboard in my life, and I rarely spend money to buy such an expensive toy (n addition to because of “justification” and bought the forest road car and heavy machine outside …) so I cannot wait to go to the embankment yesterday. And I am very painful to finished the endurance test, later I explain Why is it painful?

Before you read the story, first tell you the skateboard’s load data for facilitate the evaluation.

The total load of electric skateboard is 61.9KG with body weight 58.5KG + body protection device 1.6KG + ultra-lightweight running shoes 0.2KG +960ml treasure mine 1KG + mobile phone keys and debris 0.6KG.

The first trip in the afternoon

Yesterday afternoon the weather was quite hot, had wanted to take a skateboard to the Big River Riverside Park to try to slip, but because the family dinner time too close, had to go near the embankment to try the nearest slip. At dusk, the Happy water Park has too much people, so the acceleration and deceleration of the action is very frequent, at about 5:30 pm, I was recalled by my family, this time slipped 55 minutes.

02

After dinner, do not give up hope to go.

And after had dinner with my family and return to the water Yang Riverside Park at 9 o’clock, this time the pedal only sporadic cycling knights and runners, so play the throttle for a while, More leisurely way to glide, this time and slipped two hours and a half.

03

In the evening, slipped 10.68KM.

04

Nine o’clock in the evening, slip 28.76KM again.

05

Slope changes little when the average altitude is 26 meters.

The above data is recorded by the mobile phone “APP” Geo Tracker “,  the satellite positioning to the precise mode. Happy Aquatic Park bike lane around about 2.3 km around the vast majority of asphalt pavement, only 50 meters is quite aversion to the tiles (two total of 50 meters). I would have spent about 3 hours and 14 minutes (almost all standing on the skateboarding ~ _ ~ “), it really is quite painful experience.

This time I always slide 39.44 km when the battery is full of electricity ~ You are not wrong, on a battery of electricity, several time I want to give up slide to go home and then test again another day, this is really quite abnormal life … … … … (and when I slide with no electricity, the hand touched the battery turned out to be ice, the motor only a micro-temperature, really Good ~), I think if I did not stop and go, then the endurance should be higher, if anyone own this board, then you can try.  It Should be longer than I stand on the skateboard ”

During the whole processing, I have a great change in speed and has been press the brake (my acceleration and deceleration and speed range please refer to the above picture), so I assume that as I should be a slippery 20KM endurance on the limit (according to experience, the manufacturers usually With turtle speed plus speed to measure out a beautiful data, so cannot believe). But also because of this idea so I slip some scruples (I am think that will suddenly power off, have to hold a 7.8 kg electric skateboard back to home).

And because of this wrong idea, so I slipped until 12 o’clock, the electricity was really consumed out.(who knows the vendor’s endurance will be written so conservative …….. I really lost), It is 20km faster than I estimated speed 20km. (this story tells us, to remember the meaning of the power display lights before playing the electric skateboard “).

Four laps of them is slipped out on the skateboard (Playing as kart when slip tired, it’s really great)

06

At nine o’clock, the speed limit of about 26.8KM

This phone APP “Geo Tracker” in the phone when you can see a relatively short period of time the speed of information (such as my hand itch to push the throttle produced by the 26.8KM speed)

In short, after this measure, the following can be confirmed:

  1. The Endurance of electric skateboard is very good, manufacturers provide the data is too conservative.
  2. Motor and battery quality is good, smooth slip almost no temperature.
  3. The wheel will shock foot on the brick road.
  4. If there is 12mm gravel under the wheel, the wheels will jump but not spray board.
  5. If there is 5mm gravel, does not affect the forward and control.
  6. Brakes are sharp and sensitive, please do not push too hard, and do the focus shifted beforehand.
  7. Acceleration performance is also good, should be more exciting after unlocking.
  8. It has a good adaptability on the rough road, the flexibility of the board just to make the wheels affixed.

The above endurance and the highest speed test is not yet unlocked state.

Which travel tool is suitable for you?

At present, in the short distance transportation, the youngers pays more attention to the balance scooter, electric scooter, electric scooter and the electric skateboard these four types. Their common features, in addition to electric, the most important is portability and more new features, as well as young people like fashion, personalized.

There are two types of self balancing scooter: one wheel and two wheels, which two wheel balancing scooter can be divided into consumer and enterprise level.

http://www.koowheel.com/koowheel-patent-innovative-fashionable-design-electric-scooter-l8.html

Compared to the balance car, electric scooter, folding electric scooter “no threshold” to get started, welcomed by consumers. But the biggest problem is squeezing the portability on the bus and pushing subway scene. Although they can be designed to be very compact, they still sacrifice comfort, endurance, speed, and pass. Of course, some people think, electric scooter, folding electric scooter is essentially the evolution of motorcycles, science and technology and a sexual appeal is not strong enough. In addition to their continuous innovations in industrial design, it is difficult to see new highlights in technology.

When it comes to the highlights, we have to mention another little domestic concern – skateboarding. In recent years, some new developments have been made in electric skateboard. There is no strong skateboarding culture in China, but skateboarding plays an important role in street culture in Europe and America. Electric Skateboard evolved from surfing in the late 60s and early 50s, with the attributes of extreme sports and part of street culture in Europe and the United states.

The fashionable and best electric skateboard at Koowheel

However, it’s not easy to play tricks by skateboard. But in foreign countries, the skateboard as a means of transport, there is a certain history. In the walking scene, someone began to pack batteries and remote controls for skateboarding. A named called KOOWHEEL Electric skateboard, gain highly praised by domestic and foreign customers.

As a matter of fact, each of these short trips does not suitable for everyone, nor does it respond to all the scenes. Because the market demand is different, like the balance of the car, electric scooter, electric scooter and folding electric these products can be placed around the tail box in the car, and even go to where the ride to where to enjoy the fun of riding group pure very attractive.
