Our boards at Eovan are based off and inspired by performance muscle cars. Peter Chen, the founder of Eovan, is a big fan of fast cars. As a supercar owner, he loves impressive performance and driving fast, and he wanted to translate that into an electric skateboar.
After riding an electric skateboard for the first time, Peter was hooked and wanted to make it even better. In the beginning, his project to make the best board was purely for himself to enjoy. However, he soon realized that the parts and components out on the market were not enough to make the board of his dreams. He started to pay engineers to help design and customize key parts for his board. He soon came to the conclusion that he was onto something. Peter quit his job and spent time and money creating quality parts to use and sell.
One year later, Peter finished his electric skateboard with a custom VESC and custom motors which were made by him and his engineer partners. They kept at it, doing tests and improvements, and later built the company, Eovan Tech. Peter and his engineers wanted to share the new board to riders around the world.
Eovan team launched the board as a project on Indiegogo, but his result was disappointing. Due to poor promotion and problems behind the scenes, the project never reached its goal and failed.
The story does not stop there. Eovan team didn’t give up. Peter even sold his car to continue his dream of building the best board.
After another three years of research and development, hard work, and innovation, Eovan team redesigned and produced advanced controllers based on VESC6.0 and created hub, direct, and belt drive systems that pushed out next level performance.
Our designs for the Eovan board are based on four main principles; speed, power, comfort, and quality. In order to create the ultimate riding experience, we designed and produced 6 generations of airless rubber wheels in the past 3 years. The first version flopped and the second to fifth versions were not up to our standards. Our sixth generation wheel was finally what we were looking for. Any rider can feel a significant difference in ride quality when they put our wheels on their board.
With five years already behind us, we at Eovan are still innovating. We are constantly improving our boards to reach the pinnacle of performance. Our goal is to deliver the best boards for all to experience the joy of riding electric skateboards.
