Meet the 2022 Vortex Bamboo Direct Drive Electric Skateboard - is the bad boy you’ve been looking for. Experience the wind in your hair as you carve up the path, tear up the road or just cruise along the bay. You’re going to fall in love with this ride and experience moments of exhilaration and experience emotions that you thought no longer existed.

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.


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

What about performance? Designed for the ultimate rider experience, the Vortex DIRECT Drive comes with two massive 1600W motors, delivering awesome speed in BEAST Mode (42km/h) and max. acceleration. Keep it in low mode for a relaxed cruise or just to help ease you in during your early days.


 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 also 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 virtually maintenance free, plus are extremely efficient and super silent given they produce no loud belt noises and are fast becoming the most popular choice of motor.
