Carbon fiber can be found in high-performance products like propeller blades, wind turbines, and race cars because of its strength and lightweight properties. Carbon fiber electric skateboards are the best boards for taller riders who want stability and speed, combined with a sleek and stylish design.
In 2021, the carbon version of the Hadean Series was the Gold winner of the Good Design Award because of its innovative concept. The deck is made of 100% carbon fiber.
The main advantage of a carbon fiber deck is its stiffness, which leads to a better control of the board. This results in a more efficient riding experience, especially when going uphill. The extra length of the deck provides more stability and grip, making it easier to carve and cruise at high speeds.
So if you're looking for a performance-oriented skateboard or longboard that looks great and rides even better, consider going with a carbon fiber deck. You won't be disappointed!
What Is Carbon Fiber?
Carbon fiber is a strong, lightweight material that Evolve Skateboards uses in the construction of skateboards and longboards. It is made from carbon atoms that are bonded together to form long, thin fibers. A carbon fiber deck is typically made from multiple layers of carbon fiber. This results in an extremely strong and rigid yet lightweight deck that is perfect for high-speed riding and carving.
The first carbon fiber was created in 1879. It wasn't until the 1950s that this material began to be used in commercial applications. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, carbon fiber began to be used in the construction of sporting goods such as skis, tennis rackets, and golf clubs. Nowadays you can find carbon fiber being used to create all of the fastest things in the world - high speed aircraft, Formula 1 cars, and Evolve Skateboards.
The use of carbon fiber in skateboard construction is a relatively recent development. Evolve Skateboards was the first company to use this cutting-edge material in the construction of skateboards and longboards. We continue to push the envelope with our innovative carbon fiber designs.
Carbon fiber decks can be more expensive than decks made from other materials such as wood or plastic. This is because they offer a significant number of advantages that make them worth the cost for many riders. For instance, carbon fiber decks are very resistant to impact damage and will not flex like other materials can. This makes them ideal for riders who want a durable deck that can withstand the rigors of aggressive riding.
If you're looking for a high-performance deck that can take your riding to the next level, a carbon fiber deck is an excellent option.
Best Carbon Fiber Skateboards
If you’re interested in a carbon fiber skateboard you can’t go past our GTR and Hadean series.
The GTR is the benchmark that the rest of the electric skateboard market measures itself against. The smooth design blends high performance with massive value, and the combination results in a seamless, buttery-smooth carving experience. The GTR comes in carbon and bamboo models, but the carbon deck is the board of choice for anyone who wants to stay stable when they’re breaking speed records. No matter how much juice you put behind it, the GTR carbon will stay responsive.
The Hadean is like a level up. Take the GTR, then turn every knob up to 11 and you’ve got the Hadean. It’s faster, it’s smarter, it goes further, and it’s way more powerful. The Hadean is the best a ride can get. This board was named after the term for the Earth when it just barely came into being. The Hadean represents the culmination of over a decade of experience making boards. The effort definitely shows.
