Meet the 2022 Vortex Bamboo Direct Drive Electric Skateboard - Take to the asphalt and carve up some serious smiles, cause this skateboard is designed for riders who demand nothing but the best!
Carve coastlines with Comfort, Performance and Range thanks to the Vortex' Samsung Lithium Battery and Double King Pin Carve Trucks.
The Bamboo Direct Drive boards are the ultimate in top end performance, efficiency, minimal motor noise and max carving smoothness offering a superior ride feel unlike any other board.
Loaded with performance, the Dual 1,600W Direct Drive Motors (3,200W Total) can and will deliver serious speeds on BEAST Mode or reduce it back for a more relaxed cruising mode on the Lowest Speed Setting which is also excellent for beginners and riders of all skill levels.
BELT DRIVE VS DIRECT DRIVE
Want to know more about direct drive and belt drive motors, Read this Article here.
As a general rule of thumb...
Larger Wheels Eg. 120mm = Faster Max Speed & Less Range / Distance on Charge
Smaller Wheels Eg. 97mm = Slower Max Speed & More Range / Distance on Charge
Wheel Options: 97mm Glow Wheels, 105 or 120mm Cloud Wheels & 155mm All Terrains. Plus Save $40 on wheels when purchased with new boards in 1 package transaction.
Note: 97mm Street Wheels come standard with all boards, so if you order your board with 120mm Cloud Wheels or All Terrain's you will also receive 97mm Street Wheels as part of the standard package.

Great guys, Awesome service, easy process, great products, just go do it!Cairns, AU
All is well was wondering if it's normal to have a knocking sound sounds like it's in the battery area I think I don't think it used to
Appart from that the bored is outstanding
Wow super carvey board. Epic wheels! I was really unsure about direct drive motors but now I can see why this new motor is the go to. Really responsive, smooth and extremely quiet... I don't think ill ever go back to belt drive..
Excellent piece of kit, plenty of power, tough fast motors and awesome deck. Ride mine every day and have done some kms on it and nothing to fault!
Very impressive board, love the ride feel. Grippy and very responsive. Haven't quiet worked myself up to the top speed yet haha still seems to have plenty more power left in her even when I'm going as fast as I can handle anyway. Would recommend.
This board would have to be up there with by far the best I've ever seen. The construction and over all finish is second to none, especially the carbon casing - that was a big must for me as it helps me sleep better knowing that the battery etc is well protected if I hit anything low lying accidentally, of which on other boards I've owned just end up getting destroyed over time. Loads of power and the motors are virtually dead silent. Super smooth ride feel and the 115mm wheels feel very grippy when carving. It's a big tick from me. Cheers
