Meepo Voyager


Elektro Longboard und elektrisches Skateboard Meepo Voyager im Review auf E-Skateboardsgermany.de!

So far, the Meepo Hurricane was the only board in the Meepo fleet that wowed the world of e-boarders with a standard belt drive. But that should change with the new Meepo Voyager! What the electric skateboard offers for you and whether it is a successful addition to your skateboard collection, we clarify here in the test on E-Skateboardsgermany!

The deck


With the new Voyager, the manufacturer Meepo is officially going back to the flexible bamboo fiberglass deck. Meepoboards.com even claims to have put most of their money into developing the deck. In fact, the compound offers a stable base for high speeds without sacrificing the shock-absorbing effect.


With 98 cm * 30 cm * 14.5 cm (length/width/depth) the new Voyager offers a slightly larger base than the previous model, the Meepo Shuffle V4S - you can find the test of the board here. Similar to the V4S, the Voyager features light flares to improve maneuverability. In addition, the flares ensure a better stance, which is particularly important when accelerating quickly and braking abruptly.


For the Voyager, Meepo chose a dark design with light orange accents. An arrow of the same color at the top of the stack indicates the direction of travel. Overall, the design of the newcomer is reminiscent of the Shuffle models.

Tyres


In addition to roadworthy 90*60 mm polyurethane tires, Meepo offers a so-called "Cyclone 110s" tire set for sale. The latter is intended to be a link between road tires and off-road tires - a kind of cloud wheel, if you will - whose degree of hardness is no different from normal road tires.


The polyurethane tires with a contact area of ​​62mm offer a lot of grip on solid ground, such as asphalt. Individual bumps such as bumps or gravel are absorbed directly by the tires - the rest by the flexible deck above. On the road, this makes for a great package for fast, controlled driving. If you still like softer tires, you can use Cloudwheels from iCloudwheels.com. These are offered right away in the Meeposhop, so you can save a few euros on shipping costs. You can find the link to the matching tire sets here.*


Meepo offers many different pulleys on the website, which makes most sets of tires on the market compatible. You can find the link to the pulley sets here.* If you are looking for road tires and want to change them later, you can easily order the Cyclone tire set separately. You can find the link to the set of tires here.*



The motorization


With the Meepo Hurricane and its powerful 7000 watts, the manufacturer Meepo has already set new standards in terms of motorization. And the new Voyager lives up to this character: the newcomer tips the scales at 2800 watts.


With a dual belt drive, the Voyager delivers tremendous acceleration, almost on par with the Meepo Hurricane. The top speed is real ~51 km/h (80kg driver). In a direct comparison, the respective hub-driven predecessors - Meepo V4 and Meepo V4S - are no opponents in terms of performance.


The high degree of motorization also makes it easier to drive on inclines, according to the manufacturer Meepo even up to an incline of 46%. For comparison: An average e-board overcomes a maximum gradient of 25%-30% - and mostly only on paper. In our test, we were able to confirm that the Voyager, like the Hurricane, is a real mountaineer. Gradients of 20% have to be climbed almost at full speed, steeper slopes have to be found first.


At high speeds, the brakes are even more important. Hard-acting brakes are typical of belt-driven e-boards, and the Voyager is no different here either. Thanks to four different braking levels, both the braking power and the acceleration process can be individually adjusted. More about this on the subject of ESC.

Battery


The Meepo Voyager is available in two versions: Voyager X with a 12s3p 518Wh battery and a range of 38-58 km and Voyager S with a 12s2p 346Wh battery and a standard range of 29-40 km. Both versions use Samsung 40T batteries.


The big advantage of the 40T Samsung batteries is the gradual reduction in charge without a premature drop in performance. In other words: With 80% state of charge, the Voyager has just as much acceleration and power as with 20%. This is by no means the rule - most boards lose their ability to accelerate strongly or climb slopes at the latest at 30% charge level.

The ESC


Meepo also remains true to its LY-FOC control with the new Voyager: The latest version of the LYFOC 55B is said to enable dynamic driving and controllable acceleration - without a significant surcharge. In fact, the same type of ESC was used in the Meepo Hurricane, so it doesn't pose new challenges for experienced drivers.


Accelerating, decelerating and braking is both intuitive and responsive. The controls are very responsive and do exactly what the user asks the board to do. This is particularly important given the high speeds that the Voyager puts at the driver's disposal.


Particularly interesting for beginners: The ESC has four different driver profiles for adjusting acceleration and top speed. The driving modes limit the maximum speed as follows:


  • Driving mode 1: maximum speed 10 km/h

  • Driving mode 2: maximum speed 19 km/h

  • Driving mode 3: maximum speed 40 km/h

  • Driving mode 4: maximum speed 52 km/h


In addition, the LY-FOC has great features such as an intelligent automatic on/off switch, which means that the board switches on automatically when you step on it. This saves you the hassle of bending over to the power button.

The conclusion


For the price of a mid-range board, the Meepo Voyager is an absolute no-brainer. It's the alternative for riders looking for a sleek, flexible bamboo board that performs great without sacrificing the power of a belt drive.
