The T2 deck is stiffer than WowGo 3. Canadian maple deck is stronger and more durable, the bamboo deck is more flexible and less durable. Besides the material of the deck, Possway T2 uses a 3mm Shock Absorbing grip tape which can help to reduce the vibration while riding. Which deck to choose depends on your personal preference.
WowGo 3 uses Paris V2 front truck, and it indeed helps to transcend the riding experience to another level. Possway uses its in-house-made trucks, it performs pretty well if you ride. There is not much difference between them.
Possway T2: The ESC and Battery are housed in an aluminum alloy enclosure which is great for heat dissipation, keeping your electronics at an optimal temperature to ensure you get the best performance possible.

The wheels on WowGo 3 are 90mm and rated at 78A, while Possway T2 wheels are 90mm and rated at 82A. 70A-85A can be good for offering a smoother ride or cruising. 80A-90A can be good for slides 90A-101A+ are good for tricks and skateparks. The softer the wheel the smoother the ride will be over rough terrain. The harder the wheel the faster it will go and often the easier it will slide.

Overall, both boards are good enough, and which one is best for you depends on what you want, range, top speed, deck, wheels, or fast shipping time. But in terms of overall performance, T2 has more advantages than W3, especially for beginners. That’s why T2 is becoming more and more popular as an entry level budget electric skateboard.
