As an avid hoverboarder, you’re always on the lookout for the newest, hottest board on the market. So, when you hear about two new boards that have just been released, the Wowgo AT2 and Ownboard AT,you can’t help but be curious about how they compare. In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at these two boards and see how they stack up against each other.
The WowGo AT2 and the Ownboard AT share a very similar deck design. They are both drop-through decks with a shallow concave and a slight drop-down. They are both 98 cm long and 23 cm wide. The difference is that the WowGo deck is slightly flexy, while the Ownboard deck is not.
The foam grip tape on the WowGo deck is in hexagonal pieces, while the Ownboard deck uses rectangular pieces. Both decks are very comfortable to ride on, but I would give the edge to the WowGo deck because it is slightly flexy.
Battery and Motors
WowGo has significantly upgraded the battery and motors in the AT2 over the original WowGo board. The battery is now a 504 Wh Sanyo GA (NCR18650GA) cells in a 10S4P arrangement, which is the same as Ownboard’s AT board. The belt drive motors are 6368, 1500W each, which are also the same as Ownboard’s AT board.
These motors are significantly bigger than the motors on boards like Evolve GTR, Backfire Zealot, Onsra Black and Carve Belt. In general, bigger motors are up to build more torque and are less likely to overheat. This is due to the fact that they have a larger surface area, which helps to dissipate heat more effectively.
Additionally, bigger motors tend to use belt drives, which are much quieter than chain drives.
WowGo’s AT2 and Ownboard’s AT are both all-terrain electric skateboards that can be purchased with either pneumatic or airless wheels. Pneumatic wheels, such as those used on the AT2, are inflated with air and provide a more comfortable ride with better grip than airless tires. Airless tires, such as those used on the AT, do not require inflation and may be more durable than pneumatic tires.
If you’re trying to decide between Cloudwheels and pneumatics for your longboard, it really depends on what your priorities are. Cloudwheels are better if you’re looking for a longer range or a board that’s more responsive to the road. Pneumatics are more comfortable and offer better off-roading capabilities.
Personally, I don’t need the 175mm pneumatic wheels in my city, so I’ll probably switch to the Cloudwheels and use this as my long-range board on group rides. Whichever set you choose, you’re sure to enjoy an awesome ride.
Speed and range
The wowgo AT2 and own board AT differ in both speed and range. The wowgo AT2 has a top speed of 25 mph (40 km/h) and a range of 22 miles (35 km). The own board AT, on the other hand, has a top speed of 52 km/h / 32 mph and a range of up to 48 km / 30 miles.
The own board AT’s range is slightly lower at 38 km / 24 miles. (With 75Kg rider test on speed mode 3 ). Therefore, if you’re looking for a fast and long-range electric skateboard, the own board AT is the better option. However, if you don’t need as much speed or range, the wowgo AT2 may be more suitable for you.
The difference in weight capacity between the two boards is significant. At 30 lbs, the Wowgo AT2 can accommodate riders up to 265 lbs. The Ownboard AT, on the other hand, has a maximum weight capacity of just or 220 lbs. This difference is due to the fact that the Wowgo AT2 is constructed with a heavier duty deck and trucks. As a result, it can better support riders of all sizes.
Recharge time and warranty
The Wowgo AT2 takes 6 hours to recharge and comes with 9 month warranty, while the Own board AT takes 4-5 hours with a 5A charger and only has a 6 month warranty. Other than that, both boards have a 30 percent hill-climbing rate and can go up hills that are 30 percent steep. (Except for the AT1W, which has a 20% grade).
The Wowgo AT2 is water resistant, but it does not have an IP rating. This means that it can be used in light rain or snow, but it should not be ridden in heavy weather conditions. The Ownboard AT, on the other hand, is fully waterproof with an IP56 rating. This means that it can withstand any weather conditions, making it a great option for riders who want to be able to skate even in the worst weather.
ESC and Remote
While both the Wowgo AT2 and the Ownboard AT use the same type of ESC, they differ in terms of the remote. The Wowgo AT2 comes with a 2.4 GHz wireless remote, while the Ownboard AT uses a Bluetooth 4.0 remote. The main difference between these two types of remotes is the range.
The 2.4 GHz wireless remote on the Wowgo AT2 has a range of up to 100 meters, while the Bluetooth 4.0 remote on the Ownboard AT has a range of up to 10 meters.
Wowgo AT2 Pros & Cons:
