Designed for comfort and response, the Century 40 has a slight camber and 2-inch drop wedge/dewedge system. Now it's been carefully matched with electric skateboard components that live up to the Century 40's reputation for performance and visual appeal. The board's drop platform helps brace your feet for take-offs and hard stops, and provides a nice ride height using 6-inch pneumatic tires.
The enclosure is custom designed for the Century 40's style, size and shape, and houses the battery pack built from a hive of Samsung 30Q 18650 cells that delivers the juice for sustained power. The drive train is designed to provide snappy acceleration and great hill climbing. Custom configurations are available for top speed to challenge anyone. FSES6.6 controllers channel power from the battery pack to motors with 15 tooth pulleys that drive 15 mm wide belts to rotate 60 tooth wheel pulleys, because it's about getting the power to the wheels reliably. Surf-rodz RKP trucks provide a hanger shape with flat sides so the press-on motor mounts stay solid without clamps or extra holes for grub screws. 10mm axles give extra strength for the 6x2 inch tires mounted on Janux Quattro 4S hubs machined from solid aluminum.
Since 1999, Subsonic has built a reputation--deck by deck--for performance, reliability, and style. The electric Century 40 is carefully designed to match our ongoing dedication to excellence in all styles of riding.
