Electric Skateboards Buyer’s Guide

Design and Dimensions

The best electric skateboards have variable designs. Some entry level boards have short and wide decks, while others have long, slender ones. When buying an electric skateboard, it’s important to remember your goals. If you’re an experienced rider, a slender board may be easier to maneuver. For novices, wide skateboards provide more balance and support.

Keep in mind that an electric board may also be designed with accessories like foot straps for greater grip. This kind of feature can be found on the OUTSTORM off-road electric skateboard. Since it’s designed for off-road experiences, riders need more grip than what’s found in regular skateboards.

The deck shape is also an important part of the design. Some are rectangular, while others look like two oval circles joined together. This configuration mostly has more to do with aesthetics than performance. But if you’re used to one deck design, it’s best to stick to it.

Speed

The best electric skateboards including the WowGo 2S we reviewed are built for various purposes. Some are designed to push the limits and reach the highest possible speeds, while others have a balanced performance. Some boards can reach speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, but these are likely to break the bank. A moderate skateboard may cost anywhere between $350 and $700. These can go as fast as 25 miles per hour.

Boards with a balanced performance prioritize wheel grip, power, and overall rider experience. It is also present in some of the high-performing hoverboards for kids. These may go at max speeds and have other features like regenerative braking, speed modes, and even multi-ply decks.

Make sure to get an electric skateboard that suits your riding style. If you’re riding for the first time, get one with a balanced performance. A professional skater may want to get something with acceleration and agility.

Motor

The motor is the powerhouse of the board. Skateboard motors may be single or double, and that heavily impacts their speed. Dual motors present in Kaly NYC XL 2.0 electric skateboard can deliver more power and reach higher speeds than single motors. The motor rating is also crucial because higher-rated motors will be faster than lower-rated ones.

This logic doesn’t always hold, and some manufacturers are able to get high speeds with an average motor. For example, if an off road electric skateboard has twin 300W motors, but it can reach 31mph. Compare this to the MEEPO V3 board. It has twin 540W motors but can only reach 19mph.

The best motors also have accompanying brakes. Most manufacturers offer riding modes. This way, you can pre-configure how fast you want to ride and how quickly the board will brake.

Belts and Wheels

Belt driven boards, on the other hand, connect the motors to the board via rubber belts. Belt driven skateboards have higher torque and efficient heat dissipation. Their disadvantage is that they are loud and you cannot ride them without power.

If speed is your preference, skateboards with hub motors may be better for you. But if you enjoy the kick of an electric board under your feet, get one with a belt drive.

Battery

One way to get the best performance from your board is to maintain and take care of the battery. Many electric boards can be ridden as manual once they run out of power. You simply kick against the ground to get moving. If you have a long commute, a

One factor that determines riding pleasure is the overall charge. Boards with large batteries can travel farther and provide a more comfortable riding experience than those that run out of juice after a few miles. The best way to extend battery life is to get a board with a lot of power in the first place. You may end up paying more, but it’ll be worth it.

When thinking about batteries, it’s also critical to remember charging time. Some boards can be filled in two hours, while others may need a good six hours to charge. Your needs will determine the charging time you can tolerate.

Maneuverability

The quality of your wheels also affects the board’s grip and eventually, maneuverability. Wheels that slide during sharp turns will be harder to maneuver. The best skateboard wheels are made of polyurethane [1]. It has a remarkable grip on asphalt and concrete roads.

If you’re riding on sand or grass, you may also experience some problematic steering. For off-road rides, you’ll need pneumatic tires with grooves and fissures designed for advanced grip.

Weight and Portability

A board’s portability is a combination of its weight and deck design. Some boards, like the WeSkate 35″ have hand-sized grooves on their deck. These enable the rider to pick up the board and carry it around. Great boards even below 500 are also lightweight, between 7 lbs and 15 lbs. Heavier boards tend to sacrifice speed for portability.

A board’s deck design also determines if it’ll fit in a backpack or other bags. Sometimes, it’s easier to slip the skateboard in your bag, but if it’s too cumbersome, it won’t fit. You can solve the problem by getting a board with a short, slender design or buying a large backpack.

It’s also important to remember that a skateboard’s weight correlates to its max load. To support heavier riders, skateboards have multi-ply decks that combine strong materials like maple wood and fiberglass. While there are light materials, the weight adds up as the layers increase. If you’re a heavy rider, expect your board to weigh more than usual.

Road Condition

Road conditions are critical to a board’s durability and performance. As we mentioned earlier, boards will move better on asphalt than they do on grass and sand. More importantly, they perform great when their wheels match the terrain. The polyurethane wheels on the Vivi H2S-2 will perform poorly on the sand.

The road condition will also affect your motor in the long run. Without the right tires, your board will do more work to travel the same distance. Over time, this may wear out the motor and wheels. If your skateboard has a belt-drive, you may need to change the belt after a few months.

Safety Features

Safety features are critical for any great skateboard. Common ones include super grip decks, reactive brakes, and a sturdy base, and are found on most skateboards. These give you confidence every time you ride. They also provide you with something to rely on when things don’t go your way.

You may also find advanced safety features like excellent LED skateboard lights and foot grips on some boards. LED lights are particularly useful in dimly lit environments where you might run into something. They also alert cars and other vehicles when you’re riding along the road.

Foot straps keep your feet anchored to the deck at all times. Since electric skateboards aren’t for tricks, you don’t have to worry about them affecting your ride experience. Some straps are even adjustable, so you can change font orientation at will.

Price and Warranty

The price or the cost you pay for electric skateboard depends on many factors. But it often comes down to the brand name, performance, and material build of the skateboard. Popular brands will be more expensive than lesser-known ones.

Boards made of materials like carbon fiber also tend to cost more because of the high quality. However, they are more durable than other materials. The same goes for lithium-ion batteries and polyurethane wheels. The better the board’s build, the more you’ll pay.

The performance and how electric skateboards operate also determines the price. Perks including high speeds, sharp brakes, and remote controllers tend to raise the price.
