If ever the Evolve Carbon GT and the Bamboo GT had a love child, this would be it. The Bamboo GTX series (X meaning Extras) combines the high performance attributes of the Carbon GT and morphs these features into a slick new looking Bamboo deck.
We overhauled the Bamboo GT deck with a massive lithium battery whilst fine tuning the deck flex and laser cutting the grip-tape. We then oversized our Evolve GT street wheels to an all new 97mm sizing and blinged out the 3000 watt motors to a gold finish. What’s the result you ask? The ‘Mac Daddy’ of electric bamboo boards capable of reaching speeds of 43km/hr with a huge battery range of up to 50km/charge and a sweet deck flex that allows for a comforting ride!
The Evolve Bamboo GTX electric skateboard offers more riding modes than ever before allowing all levels of rider to enjoy the product safely with the added ability to adjust your speed mode while riding to suit conditions and maximize efficiency. Use “SLOW” mode for easy control and a safe top speed, perfect for beginners and first time users. Once you get the hang of things switch to “ECO” mode for a relaxed ride and unparalleled range. Try “FAST” mode to whizz past traffic and turn your commute into your daily adrenaline rush hour, and if you dare, switch to “GT” mode to unleash the insane power and acceleration with the ability to climb hills of up to 25% gradient! To top it all off, you can see this performance in real-time with an industry first from Evolve Skateboards: The all-new Evolve GT Series Remote. It gives you instantaneous feedback on your speed, battery level, range and mode selected with a built in LCD screen, right from the palm of your hand!

WARNING: The Evolve GTX Series is a high performance electric skateboard. It is strongly advised that children under 14 years, or new to electric skateboarding, operate the boards under supervision with full safety gear including a helmet. FAST and GT mode offers performance capabilities not suitable for beginners AND can allow the rider to get in situations that may increase risk in operation. I.E. GT mode will allow the board to climb extremely steep hills that will be dangerous to ride back down, even when using the brake. While programming is in place to limit climbing of dangerous inclines, the rider must understand the power this board can offer must be respected for safe use.
