DC motors are finding their way into more devices everyday. Technology advancements are leading to safer and better constructed electronic sporting equipment. With the improvements in battery technology over the last decade, the sporting goods and recreational sporting equipment industry has embraced small and powerful electric motors for a variety of tasks. From electronic bikes and e-skateboards to hunting equipment, advancements in motor technology have allowed for some serious power to enter the recreational space.
Electronic sporting equipment that requires high speed operations could use a mini dc motor or bldc motor, available in a wide range of sizes. If high torque is needed, you could possible use a high torque motor but a dc gear motor is the best solution.
