Electric skateboards are often overlooked in the broader micromobility ecosystem, but they’re tons of fun as both commuter EVs and recreational rides. The Tynee Mini 2 brings affordable electric shortboards to the masses, and is even more convenient than a bulky electric longboard.Expand Expanding Close
This is the first time I’ve had a chance to test one of Maxfind’s electric skateboards, but the budget e-skateboard maker has seriously impressed me. Having previously tested much more expensive name-brand boards, I can immediately tell you that the Maxfind FF AT rides just as well, if not better, than some of the bigger names out there. It may not have quite as much power (though it’s close), but it makes up for it in the ride quality.Expand Expanding Close
Just because it’s Monday doesn’t mean you can’t start the week with a bang. And I’m at a loss of a better way than by feasting your eyes on the latest lethal animal from Australia: the Ungoverned Vendetta tracked electric skateboard.Expand Expanding Close
The $449 Raldey MT-V3 electric longboard is a worthy option for beginners venturing into electric skateboarding. While the range leaves a bit to be desired, this beginner board offers a quality ride with various speed settings you can work up to, just don’t try to take it too far off the beaten path… even with the CloudWheels I also tested.Expand Expanding Close
The $499 Possway T3 electric skateboard falls into an interesting middle ground between typical road-ready electric longboards and their beefier all-terrain electric board cousins. The chunky wheels and powerful ride combine to offer it a commanding presence that gives you the confidence to tackle more than you might be able to on a conventional electric longboard. Or at least that’s what it did for me when I got the chance to test it out recently.Expand Expanding Close
Future Motion, the company behind the Onewheel electric mobility products, has just launched an update to its entry-level and flagship self-balancing electric skateboards. The new Onewheel GT and Onewheel Pint X both receive performance boosts that make the physics-defying rides sportier than ever.Expand Expanding Close
I’m admittedly only a couple years into the world of electric skateboards, immersing myself in the technology after seeing people zoom by me on the strand in the South Bay of Los Angeles. One name that continually came up has been Backfire Skateboards, which just recently unveiled its Hammer all-terrain electric board, and I got the opportunity to test it out for you.
While I was a bit timid (and truthfully terrified) by the near 30 mph top speed of this skateboard, I quickly fell in love with the Hammer’s performance and smooth ride through everything I threw at it… and I mean everything. You’re going to want to check the Backfire Hammer out ASAP, because this thing cooks.Expand Expanding Close
The WowGo AT2 all-terrain electric longboard has just been unveiled by WowGo, introducing a new budget-minded option for off-road electric skateboarding.
The Spectra X from Walnutt is not your standard electric skateboard. It uses bodyweight shifting instead of a hand remote to control acceleration and braking.
Does it work? Definitely. Is it odd feeling? Also definitely.
In a surprise move, electric skateboard and e-scooter company Boosted confirmed its severe financial troubles and laid off most of its staff.
Exway sent me an early release of their upcoming Exway Flex electric skateboard to test out. And it freakin’ rocks, people. Plus, it’s actually affordable compared to the major premium boards out there, starting at just $649.
If I was Boosted or any other premium e-skateboard brand, I’d be worried.
Electric skateboards are fast, efficient, and thrilling ways to commute around town or just cruise for fun. And the Revel DIY electric skateboard kit helps you build your own e-skateboard with almost zero technical skills.
If you can turn a screwdriver, you can build an electric skateboard with this kit.
Despite not being a very old industry, electric skateboards have seemed to settle into a stable, almost stagnant state of incremental updates instead of major innovations. Or at least that’s what I thought up until today when the new Dot modular electric skateboard came along and changed everything.
Inboard was a promising and well-funded California-based electric skateboard company with a long list of fans. But the company’s pursuit of an electric scooter ultimately led to its downfall.
I’m relatively new to the skateboard world, and I am indeed new to the electric skateboard world. A week or so ago, I got an advanced look at the Onpark Find 3. It includes dual brushless hub motors and can get up to 31 mph with 23 miles range on a single battery. It’s currently on Kickstarter, but I can confirm that it’s a real product, so I am excited to recap my experience.
Boosted, a leader in the electric skateboard industry, is back with a pair of new products: Boosted Beams headlights and larger wheels known as Boosted 105s.
What would happen if you combined the thrill of zooming along the pavement on an electric skateboard with the go-anywhere freedom of all-terrain vehicles? You’d end up with the Backfire Ranger X2 electric skateboard, and you’d be in for a serious treat!
There are a lot of fancy (and expensive) electric skateboards out there. But it’s the budget boards that are most popular among students, new riders, and anyone looking for high value with low cost. The WowGo 3 is one of the favorites of the electric skateboard community when it comes to bang for buck, so we took a deep dive into this review to see how good the budget-priced WowGo 3 electric skateboard could be.
While electric skateboards may be brushed off by detractors as simple toys, you shouldn’t dismiss them so quickly. The truth is that they are actually potent commuter vehicles, as demonstrated by the Exway X1 Pro electric skateboard.
Check out our review below to see why this fast and fun electric skateboard makes such a great commuter vehicle.
Audi has a new electric micro-mobility offering known as the e-tron Scooter. Half skateboard, half scooter, this new last-mile vehicle from Audi is all-electric.
Electric skateboards are one of the most thrilling ways to commute. Sure, I love a good electric bicycle or scooter, but nothing compares to the rush of carving down the street or bike lane on an electric skateboard. And with today’s launch of the Unlimited x Loaded electric skateboard kit, you can turn your favorite longboard into a street-surfing electric cruiser in no time for as low as $769, or pick up a ready-to-ride electric skateboard built on a premium Loaded Boards long or shortboard.
In college in Southern California, I would skateboard between classes. It saved a few minutes of commute and was fun on the manicured streets and smooth sidewalks in and around USC. But even as big a fan of micro mobility, I haven’t since seen skateboarding as a commuter tool, even with the powerful new longboards from Boosted and others. Roads and seasons in New York are just too terrible. But last month, Boosted gave me their $999 Boosted Mini X in an attempt to change my mind…
