My research conclusion:
Boosted board is almost interchangeble to the term electric skateboard at this point.
Good range, fast speed, good build, good customer service and a huge fan base. Boosted board is THE gold standard of electric skateboard.
And on the old Boosted board VS Evolve board question?
If you want to go off road, Evolve is your only choice.
If not? Boosted board have more bells and whistle with it’s flexible deck, swap-able battery and accessory port.

Boosted Board is among the first
Boosted board was here since 2012!
For all these year, Boosted has been maintaining a reputation of producing high quality electric skateboard and also following up with awesome customer service.

Boosted Board is the most recognized brand
Popular youtuber Casey Neistat was very outspoken on his love towards the Boosted Board and with many others openly vouched for their love for the board and the after sales service, you couldn’t feel safer going with the popular choice.

Best riding experience
Bamboo & Fiberglass deck means you will have the smoothest ride you can on a skateboard of any kind, electric or not!

See how springy the deck is?

At the end of the day, you always consider Boosted Board first when thinking about buying an electric skateboard.
You only consider other boards when there are some specific needs you need to meet (Budget? Off-road? Portability?)
Boosted Board is the board that every other board compares to, and is a all around awesome board.

In short, I’m confident to recommend Boosted Board to anyone.

“Family is the number 1, Boosted board is a close number 2”
