The 500W motor is a gearless Best electric skateboard under 500 direct drive rear hub motor, and the rear mechanical disk brake comes in at 140mm, which provides reliable safety when braking. The battery pack is 48V and 10Ah, this sort of power definitely can get you up a reasonable hill without losing too much off the top speed.
