Meet the 2022 Vortex Grom Carbon Electric Skateboard! - They say "Big things come in small packages" and with that in mind this Mini Street Shredding machine certainly has delivered on that! Weighing in at only 8.5kg the Grom is an industry first board for size, performance and range!
Carve up to 45km of coastlines in Style with more Performance and Range than most full size boards thanks to the Vortex' 44V Samsung Lithium 21700 Premium Battery and 7" Carve Trucks.
The Grom Carbon Mini board is the ultimate package for riders who demand nothing but the best and want optimal portability but don't want to sacrifice top end performance, efficiency and range.
With the option of Dual Direct Drive or Belt Drive Motors this board will deliver serious torque and 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 - Which Motor Should I Choose?
Belt Drive Motors.. provide phenomenal amounts of torque and acceleration thanks to their gearing. They are substantially louder than Direct Drive Motors, require a little more tuning and maintenance in belt tensions but provide excellent heat dissipation.
Direct Drive Motors.. provide higher top end performance, are super smooth and lightweight for ultimate street carving. Direct Drive Motors are very low maintenance, plus are extremely efficient and super silent given they produce no loud belt noises and are fast becoming the motor of choice.
WHEEL SIZES & OPTIONS - What Speed & Range Can I Expect?
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
97mm Street Wheels come with all boards standard. If you order a 2 in 1 Kit you will receive both 97mm street wheels as well as the optional wheels of your choice at a great package price!
Note: We recommend not using wheels any larger than 105mm Cloud wheels on Grom models to avoid any wheel bite.

This board has now become my daily best friend. I've always wanted something this portable but theres just nothing out there that remotely compares in terms of range/power of which this board has huge range with my avg kms around 40km and it absolutely rips, dominates hills and the acceleration/speed is nuts. Finish all round is just phenomenal. Its up there in price but it's certainly clear as to why given the specs and you just don't get a carbon board of this spec anywhere for such money, plus the team at ampd are super helpful. Just awesome, highly recommend.
