Hello, Can someone elaborate on the difference between the RipCurrent and the RipCurrent S besides the one has the fenders, rack and larger amp battery. Is there mechanically different or is it just the battery size ?
All you need is the 52 V battery. If the new RCS has the same new controller as the CCX, then you wouldn't have that, but the big jump IMO is going from 48 to 52 V. Noticeable change in performance. And your 1st gen RCS will handle the 52 V just fine.
From what I've seen, it's not that hard to swap out a controller either, if you wanted the full upgrade.
