I wonder if you could use it to get you up the hill and then disengage the motor to go down the hill, but still be able to still use it as a brake.
Does that make sense?

yes, it definitely makes sense.... but you could also ride on any ground, even dead flat...it could even be the occasion to easily make races with friends... the future formula 1 of kids

Have you seen the "Inlinge" skateboards. They have in-wheel motors. IMO a significant improvement over externally mounted motors. Once again price is too high, $1400.

In-wheel motors would be a nice improvement for electric mountaboards. But it is likely they would be way to expensive.

IMO biggest problem for lack of standard mountaboard (MB) popularity is price. A nice longoard (LB) skateboard is $150+/- vs $500+/- for a nice MB. Mountainboards are pretty much limited to fairly steep grades and slopes relative to LB skate boards. Offroad riding areas are limited relative to the broad availability of paved areas for skateboard use.

there is a lot of "dust" on the electric devices market...plenty designs, products and prices.... but it's going down very quickly.

During the last years, the RC components were the only easily available (motor+belt transmission)... the DIY era!

Recently, in wheel motors arrived but only for skate wheels format (too small for mtb).

However, since the last hoverboard frenzy, you can get 2 x 8" in-wheel motor +controller + (small) battery for $200... that's what's needed to make an emtb !

Pretty soon, an electric kit (8"in wheel motor+controller +battery) will be probably around $100 ...

Last word between (old) carvers, with a motor, you can easily adjust your speed to the curve you want to carve ... you don't have to deal with road grade, width and/or curve radius and rythm.

You can simply ride O or 8 shaped curve, increase the speed progressively and try to improve your riding style to maximize carving
