Of course some people want the fastest, some people want the one that looks the coolest, some people want something different. 

There are weight sensing boards, off road boards, Electric Skateboards with Lead acid battery's, heavy electric Skateboards and light ones! You need to decide what meets your criteria, what do you want from an Electric Skateboard?

Here are some things to think about.

Will you commute with it?

If you do it needs to light and portable. 

Whats your budget? Is money no object?

Do you care about value for money?

Do you plan to ride off road?

You'll need big wheels! 

Do you plan to use your electric skateboard often?

You'll need good range and a fast charge. 

Do you care about speed or handling or both? 

Look into the deck shape that suits you best, longboard style decks are best for speed and handling.

Do you plan to use an electric skateboard on commutes?

You'll need a ride that is comfortable with high rebound wheels. 

Do you know the difference between lead acid and lithium powered Electric skateboards?

The battery is of massive importance and a lead acid battery, simply weighs more, takes longer to charge and doesn't last as long as a lithium in terms of life span. 

 

Check out our spec and we feel it doesn't lack in any area but we've armed you with some info, as we believe every rider should have the right electric skateboard for them. 

If you like the post please share :)
