The Evolve Bamboo GTX is one of the newest models from Evolve. Like the Bamboo GT, the Bamboo GTX has also a deck of bamboo wood. This model also has 2 engines which deliver together 3000 watts of power. The biggest difference between the Bamboo GT and Bamboo GTX is the battery.

Evolve Carbon GT
The Evolve Carbon GT is a unique model in the e-skate industry. This was one of the first electric skateboards with a carbon deck. This not only looks great but is also functional. All components are incorporated in the deck itself and are therefore not in a cover under the electric skateboard as with the Bamboo models. This model, like the other Evolve models, also has 2 engines which deliver together 3000 watts and give a top speed of 42km/h. The battery capacity of this model is equal to that of the Bamboo GTX.
