Best Electric Skateboards 2022 (from Budget to Premium)

Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve finally updated our best electric skateboards list after having it sitting idle for months. In this update, we will be recommending boards according to their price point – since you know, most of us shop with a budget in mind.

We like to think that we’ve considered all viable products (or at least most of them), and all the best options have made it onto this recommendation list. 

In the end, what’s right for you often comes down to personal preference, so we’ve included a few options for each price segment – each of them better than the others in a certain aspect. Because of that, the numbering on this list is not necessarily a ranking of the boards themselves, or implying that one board is better than the others (unless we explicitly said so, heh). 

Of course, if you are interested in buying any electric skateboard, be sure to check out our Discount Page for additional discounts.

For those who are new to ESHQ, we’ve been reviewing electric skateboards for three years now. Just look around, I’m sure there is enough proof that we are pretty well informed.

But that’s enough introduction, let’s get started.

Best Electric Skateboard under $500

We’ve reviewed countless boards under $500, and there’s a lot of devil in the details.
For simplicity’s sake, we are going to boil all options down to just the top 3; if you are interested in a deeper dive, please visit this page – Best Budget Electric Skateboard under $500.

Best Budget Electric Longboard (under $500)

1. Wowgo 3 – $399

The former best mid-tier electric longboards have seen a price cut. (It’s a steal!)

  • Price: $399
  • Battery: 180wh, 10s2p- above average amongst affordable boards
  • Range: 11miles/17km – average
  • Top speed: 24mph/ 39kmh – average
  • Motors: 2 x 500W (hub)above average
  • ESC: 10s Hobbywing ESC
  • Deck profile: Flexible

Read our full review on Wowgo 3 

The only reason Wowgo 3 is not mentioned a lot in the discussions of best budget electric skateboard, is that nobody realized it is $399 right now. Wowgo 3 is being discontinued replaced by the newer Wowgo 2s Max, and Wowgo is clearing the remaining stock with a huge price cut.

For those who don’t know, Wowgo 3 was one of the best electric skateboard at mid-tier price ($519) when it was released in 2019.

The board was and still is amazing. Great flexible deck, genuine Paris truck and Hobbywing ESC means that both the board control and speed control are silky smooth. The 180Wh battery and 500W hubs might be considered weak compared to other mid-tier boards but for $399, it’s crazy value. For heaven sake, the Paris Truck and the nice flexible deck would have been worth the asking price already.

If you want an entry-level electric skateboard, get this one while stock lasts.

2. Wowgo 2s Max – $479

Wowgo 2s Max is the most well-rounded and the safest bet under $500.

  • Price: $479
  • Battery: 216wh, 12s2p – above average amongst affordable boards
  • Range: 14.3miles/ 23km – above average
  • Top speed: 28mph/ 45kmh –Above average
  • Motors: 2 x 550W (hub) top tier
  • ESC: 12s Hobbywing ESC with smart-turn on
  • Deck profile: Stiff, Subtle concave

Read our full review on Wowgo 2s Max 

If you are looking for a board that’s comfortable and intuitive to ride, Wowgo 2s Max is the one for you. When it comes to specs, Wowgo 2s Max is either top tier (power, top speed) or on par with its competitors (battery/range). 

The trucks are good quality geared towards stability, and the speed control is amazingly smooth and intuitive thanks to the 12s Hobbywing ESC (Electronic Speed Controller).

However, what place Wowgo 2s Max at the top is the details. Wowgo 2s Max is amongst if not THE most polished board under $500. From the foam grip-tape to graphic underneath the board; to better-looking remotes, nothing from the looks will give away the affordable price tag.

Oh, and Wowgo has an above-average track record in after-sale service too.

Go to Wowgo 2s Max product page here.


3. Meepo V4 Shuffle – $399

The most thrilling amongst budget electric skateboards.

  • Price: $399
  • Battery: 144wh, 10s2p – average amongst affordable boards
  • Range: 11 miles/ 18km – average
  • Top speed: 29mph /46kmh – top tier
  • Motors: 2 x 640W (hub) best in class
  • ESC: LingYi (LY-FOC 1.0) with push to start
  • Deck profile: Stiff, rocker deck, aggressive W-concave

Read our full review on Meepo V4 

Screw “best overall”, you want something that packs punches.

Or perhaps you are higher in weight class and are concerned that an affordable electric skateboard is not going to push you.

In that case, Meepo V4 Shuffle is the board you should get instead.

Meepo has traditionally been the one that packs the most punches, perhaps thanks to its founder Kieran’s obsession with torque. Meepo V4 has a pair of 640W that tops everyone else in under $500 range (and maybe even most hub-boards <$1000).

And obviously, torque is not the only thing that Meepo V4 does well. The rest of the specs kept up well with its peers too. Riding experience wise, Meepo V4 goes with the newest iteration of LingYi ESC (Meepo, being the biggest budget brand, always gets the newest version), which is completely smooth and intuitive to control, with tad bit more punch than the best Hobbywing ESC (and can completely stop on an incline, which Hobbywing ESC so far can not.)

Ride profile-wise, the Meepo V4 chose to be unique instead of going with the safe-comfortable-boring route. It’s aggressive concave, and a shorter deck gives the board a more responsive control (hence the name Shuffle), but some might find it less comfortable and do less to reduce vibration.

When it comes to building polish and parts quality, Meepo V4 is above average at that too. (The look of the board though, is pretty subjective, personally, I am not a fan).


On after-sale service, I would say it is satisfactory to above average.

Other good budget electric longboards (under $500):

There are other really good budget electric skateboards that are great for specific use cases, for example, having a giant battery for range. Those boards didn’t make the cut for our top 3, but we do talk about them here on this page -> Best Budget Electric Skateboard under $500.


Best Budget Electric Shortboards (under $500)

1. Meepo Mini 2 – $449

All you need at an affordable price.

  • Price: $449
  • Battery: 144wh, 10s2p – average amongst affordable boards
  • Range: 11 miles/ 18km – average
  • Top speed: 29mph /46kmh – top tier
  • Motors: 2 x 540W (hub) top tier
  • ESC: LingYi (LY-FOC 1.0) with push to start
  • Deck profile: Dish-like concave

Read our full review on Meepo Mini 2 

Meepo Mini 2 is old news, it has been the best budget shortboard of our pick for the last few years, ever since it was released. While there are new and better boards released since then, they are also pricier. At the same time, Meepo Mini 2 has also been getting updates after updates (Updated ESC, refined build, better-looking remote) to keep it on top of the competition.

Riding experience-wise, Meepo Mini 2 has perfect speed control as it was updated to the latest iteration of LingYi ESC (the same one found on Meepo V4). Board controls are great too, thanks to above-average skate parts. However, it is important to point out that Meepo Mini 2 is geared towards stability more so than agility, and is not as light as it looks (16 lbs / 7.27 kg).

Spec-wise, Meepo Mini 2’s 144wh battery is pretty standard for a budget electric skateboard; what’s top tier is the 540 watts motors which allow higher than peer’s top speed. While top speed is not usually a factor when shopping for a shortboard, torque definitely is. For those who might be concerned that an affordable shortboard might be too weak to push them around (eg, heavier rider), the Meepo Mini 2 will definitely be good enough.

For most people, the $449 board is everything they would need from a shortboard.

2. Verreal Mini – $339

Unbeatable price for a good shortboard. 

  • Price: $339
  • Battery: 144wh, 10s2p – average amongst affordable boards
  • Range: 11 miles/ 18km – average
  • Top speed: 23mph/ 38kmh – average
  • Motors: 2 x 350W (hub)below average
  • ESC: 10s Hobbywing ESC

Verreal Mini is not a very interesting board, from the looks to the specs, there’s nothing worth writing home about. However, with a price tag of only $339, the board is surprisingly decent.

For $300, we expect a single-hub underpowered toy, but Verreal Mini still sports a decent pair of 350W motors.
For $300, we mostly see boards that use outdated LingYi ESC with jerky speed control; instead, the Verreal Mini uses Hobbywing ESC which provides silky smooth speed control.

On top of everything, Verreal is a known brand with a fair reputation.

So, for anyone who is looking for a shortboard and wants to save as much as possible, our recommendation would be Verreal Mini.

Best Mid-tier Electric Longboard (under $1000)

There was a time when no vendor would sell an eskate at this price range, as nobody would dare to dish out this much money for an unknown brand, and no premium brand would care to take a profit cut to sell a product at this price.

This changed in 2019. 

As Chinese budget brands proved themselves to be reliable, those who were looking for an upgrade were happy to pay a slightly higher price to Meepo, Backfire, Wowgo, Ownboard and Exway for something better. 

The same trend continues to be true in 2020. Once a no-man land, the mid-tier segment is now flooded with choices, and most of them are good. And for those who want a polished ride but don’t want to break the bank, the best electric skateboards would fall within this price segment.


1. Backfire Zealot S – $799

Belt-driven board with great specs

  • Price: $799
  • Battery: 346wh, 12s2p – competitive for the price
  • Range: 25 miles/ 40km – competitive
  • Top speed: 30mph/ 48kmh – average
  • Motors: 2 x 875W (belt)below average
  • ESC: 12s Hobbywing ESC

The Backfire Zealot S is both the most popular and also the most logical choice when it comes to buying a mid-tier electric skateboard. The board has beefy specs that keep itself competitive if not ahead of other similar priced boards, on top of that, the Zealots S is better built and better polished than most of its competitors.

Obviously, Backfire Zealot S is an amazing ride. Flexible composite deck and CNC forged trucks allows a stable and comfortable ride. The boards are powerful and 12s Hobbywing ESC made sure those power are easily harnessed with smooth and intuitive control.

2. Exway Flex & Flex Riot – $599

Super polished board with amazing riding experience

  • Price: $599
  • Battery: 216wh, 12s2p – competitive for the price
  • Range: 15.5 miles/ 25km – competitive
  • Top speed: 25mph/ 40kmh – average
  • Motors: 2 x 1200W (belt)/ 2 x 1000W(hub) –above average
  • ESC: 12s Hobbywing ESC

Read our full review on Exway Flex 

The Exway Flex is awesome. You get to choose either the belt version or the hub version. You get a very good performing board that has a fantastic riding experience. The highlight of the Exway Flex is the flexible deck with an aggressive concave that’s very comfortable underneath your feet, a smooth, powerful, and customizable speed control thanks to using the best version of customized Hobbywing ESC, and Exway’s proprietary yet very very good Trist truck and wheels.

On top of that, the Exway Flex has all the best features you want on an eskate. It has a smartphone app, it is IP55 waterproof, has a smart turn-on function (the board automatically turns on with the remote), and the battery protects itself if the board is stored unused for an extended period of time.

Furthermore, Exway also has a better customer service track record, top product polish, and more complete accessory options (wheels/ pulleys) for its boards.

It has received lots of hype, and after reviewing the board ourselves, we know the hype is 100% justified.

3. Wowgo AT2 (14AH)- $1099

Well-polished and well-specced 2-in-1.

  • Price: $1099
  • Battery: 504wh, 10s4p – top tier for the price
  • Range: 18 miles/ 29km – top tier
  • Top speed: 25mph/ 40kmh – average
  • Motors: 2 x 1500W (belt) average
  • ESC: 10s Hobbywing ESC

Read our full review on Wowgo AT 2

If you are looking for an electric longboard that can be converted between all-terrain pneumatic wheels and street wheels, well, Wowgo AT2 is a really good option at the $1000 mark.

It has a fun comfortable flexible double-drop deck, a lot of range (10s4p battery), and a good set of double kingpin trucks (very turn-y, could use some more stability).

On top of the beefy specs, Wowgo AT2 is also very well built and well polished, and that is why we recommend it over other AT boards from less reputable brands.

Best Mid-tier Electric Shortboards: (under $1000)

There is now plenty of options when it comes to electric shortboards under $1000.
There are a lot of new boards from familiar brands.

These are the best amongst them:

1. Wowgo Mini 2 – $599

Polished, nimble, comfortable, and powerful shortboard.

  • Price: $599
  • Battery: 187.2wh, 10s2p – competitive for the price
  • Range: 15 miles/ 25km – average
  • Top speed: 25mph /40kmh –average
  • Motors: 2 x 680W (hub) top tier
  • ESC: Hobbywing ESC with smart power on
  • Deck profile: Dish-like concave

Read our full review on Wowgo Mini 2 

If you are looking for a shortboard and you want to make an ‘optimal’ purchase, Wowgo Mini 2 is the best board you can get while not overpaying for anything.

While the battery spec is merely competitive (10s2p), and the top speed of 25mph is pretty standard, those are likely not important when it comes to shortboard. A bigger battery means a heavier board, and that defeats the purpose of getting a shortboard which is usually for portability.

With that said, Wowgo Mini 2 excels in all the important parts. A powerful set of motors that satisfies even the heaviest rider, a nimble and agile ride, and obviously, super smooth and intuitive control (Hobbywing ESC duh).

Sure, there are stronger shortboards at a higher price, but why pay more when Wowgo Mini 2 has everything a shortboard needs. Oh, and the board looks nice and couldn’t be more polished.

2. Tyneeboard Mini Belt 5AH – $579

Best affordable belt electric shortboard.

  • Price: $579
  • Battery: 180wh, 10s2p – competitive for the price
  • Range: 12 miles/ 19km – average
  • Top speed: 23mph /38kmh –average
  • Motors: 2 x 875W (belt) top tier
  • ESC: Hobbywing ESC with smart power on
  • Deck profile: Dish-like concave with short kicktail

Read our full review on Tyneeboard Mini BELT

Tyneeboard Mini Belt is the best affordable belt shortboard, and that by itself had made it a popular board. For shortboard riders who like belt-driven, perhaps for the smoother ride feel allowed by having 4 real wheels instead of 2 stiff hub motors, perhaps for the strong acceleration from a stop, perhaps for the louder sound it makes, and importantly don’t mind the reduced range suffered from going belt, then Tyneeboard Mini Belt hit those points.

Besides being just an affordable belt drive, Tyneeboard Mini gives a smooth, relaxing stable ride with its stable truck and relatively wide wheelbase. With that said, this does sacrifice some agility for stability, its short kicktail makes kick turning harder but at the same time reduces the risk of accidental wheelie.

Good polish, great built quality from a reputable brand, this is the first board to consider if you want a belt-driven shortboard.

3. Exway Wave & Wave Riot – $699

  • Price: $749
  • Battery: 216wh, 12s2p – average for the price
  • Range: 11.5 miles/ 18km – below average
  • Top speed: 23.5mph/ 38kmh – average
  • Motors: 2 x 800W (belt)/ 2 x 1000W (hub) top tier
  • ESC: Hobbywing ESC with smart power on
  • Deck profile: Dish-like concave

Refined, nimble ride with extra features.

Read our full review on Exway Wave

If you want the most refined shortboard packed full of features, the Exway Wave is the electric shortboard you should get. A Dish-like short concave deck makes the board comfortable underneath your feet and helps with nimble control. Exway, as per usual, uses quality skate and electronic parts that rival even the most premium boards.

On top of that, the Exway Wave is packed with useful features: IP55 Waterproofing, integrated LED lights, a mobile app, and a hot-swappable battery!

Combining the awesomeness of this board and the fact that Exway is a good brand with good post-sales service, the Exway Wave is an easy recommendation for anyone who is looking for an electric shortboard.

4. Meepo Mini 2 ER – $589

Meepo-Mini-2-ER.jpg

Stable, powerful electric shortboard with a lot of range.

  • Price: $589
  • Battery: 302.4wh, 10s2p – top tier for the price
  • Range: 20 miles/ 32km – top tier
  • Top speed: 29mph /46kmh – top tier
  • Motors: 2 x 540W (hub) top tier
  • ESC: LingYi (LY-FOC 1.0) with push to start
  • Deck profile: Dish-like concave

Read our full review on Meepo Mini 2 ER 

While Meepo Mini 2 is the best deal for under $500, the Meepo Mini 2 ER is also a top pick for anyone looking for a quality shortboard with a lot of range.

With smooth control, powerful motors, quality build, and, now, a lot of battery, the Meepo Mini 2 ER is good enough for most riders. Again, it’s worth reminding that the board is heavy, stable, wide, and rides more like a longboard, as opposed to a nimble shortboard. Don’t buy this if you are looking for portability, though; this thing is heavy.

Check out Meepo Mini 2 ER product page (click).



Best Premium Electric Skateboard (over $1000)

Let’s face it, most of the electric skateboards above $1000 are very good. They all have beefy specs, polish built, and good post-sale services.

However, some of the boards are more popular than the rest for a reason, and these are the top choices that deserve your first consideration.

1. Meepo Hurricane – $1,599

Powerful 2-in-1 carbon fiber electric skateboard for an amazing price.

  • Price: $1599
  • Battery: 725.8wh, 12s4p – top tier for the price
  • Range: 31 miles/ 50km – top tier
  • Top speed: 35mph /56kmh – best
  • Motors: 2 x 3500W (belt) best
  • ESC: LingYi (LY-FOC 1.0) with push to start
  • Deck profile: Carbon Fiber double-drop deck

Read our full review on Meepo Hurricane

Meepo has always been known for two things, 1) providing lots of value while undercutting the competitor in price and 2) making very powerful boards.

Meepo Hurricane did both of the above really well and hence it’s not surprising that it quickly became one of the most popular electric skateboards in the years 2021-2022. Meepo Hurricane carries one of the biggest batteries, is super powerful with crazy acceleration and top speed; and amazingly it achieves these while still keeping built quality, polishes, and riding experience top-notch.

The board is more stable than carvy, so those who are looking to maximize carving fun may have to look for a different ride, but for the majority of the eskaters, Meepo Hurricane would be everything they would want at an amazing price.

Check out Meepo Hurricane product page (click).


2. Exway Atlas Carbon (4WD) – $1,999

Powerful 4WD and the most polished ride.

  • Price: $1999
  • Battery: 518wh, 12s2p – average for the price
  • Range: 16.8 miles/ 27km – average
  • Top speed: 32mph /51kmh – average
  • Motors: 4 x 1200W (belt) top tier
  • ESC: Hobbywing ESC with smart turn on
  • Deck profile: Carbon Fiber double-drop deck

If you are looking for the most polished electric skateboarding experience, Exway is always the brand you should go with, and Exway Atlas is the board to get.

While the specs on paper might not blown anyone away, the riding experience of Atlas will. Exway Atlas has one of the best double kingpin trucks that are fun to carve in yet is stable at high speed. And for those who want torque, having 4 motors will give you plenty of that.

The board was also packed full of features and had lots of accessories available. It has smart turn on, IP 55 waterproof rating, and a useful apps. The board is also modular, you can customise everything from how many drivetrain to put on, the wheels, or fine adjust the control settings with mobile apps.

Again, if you care about a refined user experience, Exway Atlas will make you really happy.

3. Propel Endeavor Pro – $2,099

Powerful yet comfortable suspension board at a ground breaking price.

  • Price: $2099
  • Battery: 1110wh, 12s5p – best for the price
  • Range: 44 miles/ 71km – best
  • Top speed: 31mph /50kmh – average
  • Motors: 2 x 3000W (belt) top tier
  • ESC: Flipsky VESC
  • Deck profile: Carbon Fiber deck, suspension trucks!

Read our full review on Propel Endeavor Pro 

Off-road suspension board was once ungodly expensive, not anymore. For $2000, Propel Endeavor Pro has a very reasonable specs, built really well and rides really well. The dual 3000W motors has the power to handle hardcore off-roading, the suspension system can handle super rough terrain and the VESC provides absolute smoothness in speed control.

While off-road suspension board are not usually practical for regular street ride, as they are very heavy, not really agile and not fun for carving, Propel Endeavor Pro is actually responsive enough to be fun in street riding. In fact, Propel Endeavor Pro is such a good value for the price that it makes similar priced regular longboard ‘bad deals’ in comparison.

In short, if you are intersted in off-road electric skateboarding, ‘mountain eskating’ or just want an electric skateboard that is completely immune to potholes, Endeavor Pro will be the best board by far.

Boutique and the Beasts: (Very Expensive) ​

If price is not a factor, the best electric skateboards obviously are those with meteoric price. However, ranking the boards in this segment is basically impossible, as there is just no way to compare boards at this price. When a board is selling at this price, what’s great about them usually has nothing to do with the numbers, but rather it’s all about the design. These boards are the small-scale boutique brands, or DIY based vendors that aim to craft the fiercest monster money can buy.

Now, I’m just gonna list them according to price.

1. Hoyt St – $1,999

Hoyt-St-EL-1

The stylish one

Hoyt St. is a boutique brand that made electric skateboards so beautiful, that you are not sure you should ride it or hang it on a wall. If you can stomach the price tag, however, you will find yourself in possession of a very well-designed and well-crafted board that uses the best skateboard parts available and state-of-the-art electronics.

Check out Hoyt St product page (click).


2. Metroboard X (AT and Street) – $2,574-2,699

The Powerful

If you want a high quality 2 in 1 board made in the USA, the Metroboard is it. 

Metroboard is one of the oldest brands of Eskate and has been making high quality premium electric skateboards for a while now. Their latest flagship MetroboardX is not only pushing up the price, but also doubling down on the quality, using many parts that were made specially for it. 

Of course, it also has beefy specs, as all board in this price segment usually do.

Check out Metroboard X product page (click).


3. Kaly.nyc – $2,850-$3,600

The Beast

If you want to get a premium Trampa built, get a Kaly. 

It’s powerful, uses gear drives and looks freaking cool, and I think 2/3 of us in ESHQ have one, so going by that alone it’s probably the best electric skateboard! 

It starts at $2,850 for the base model and the highest specced XL40 is ‘only’ selling at $3,600.

Check out Kaly.nyc product page (click).


4. Bajaboard- $3,550 – $4,449

The Jeep (OG)

Does Bajaboard need further introduction?

The Bajaboard is the OG for true all-terrain electric skateboard, a beast that can seemingly conquer any terrain. 

One caveat about Bajaboard is, it’s difficult to buy it outside of Australia. Shipping costs, customs, taxes, and after-sales support are all hurdles that may stop you from getting the Bajaboard for those who are not in Australia.

Check out Best Bajaboard product page (click).


5. Lacroix family – $2,500 – $4,000

The Tank

The Lacroix is the most expensive electric skateboard on the market right now and the Nazare Lonestar is most likely the most powerful board with the beefiest battery in production right now.

Personally, I think the Lacroix is tailored for those who are blessed with wide and endless roads, as only those roads allow one to take a long cruise at high speed. The Lacroix is a very stable ride but wasn’t the easiest to turn (or maybe it’s just not made for my weight), so it probably isn’t the board for everyone. (But those who have it swear by it!)

Check out Lacroix product page (click).


6. Bioboard family – above $3,500​

The Elite

I stand corrected, the Bioboards are the most expensive electric skateboard money can buy right now. Bioboards are made in Sweden, and they aim to offer the highest performance possible.

Let’s go through some numbers, their flagship – Bioboard’s Plutonium, is a board with 2WD or 4WD options, starting at $3500. Powered by a 12s6p Samsung 40T battery, it has a top speed that starts at 65kmh(40mph) and uses 4500W motors…

Check out Bioboard product page (click).


Final Words:

So, these are the best electric skateboards at every price point. I hope you enjoyed this list and found it helpful to make an informed purchase decision.

  1. NLS pro is belt drive, so the option for wheels is more vast than the v3. id say if ur not looking to buy aftermarket wheels u should stick to the v3 ER. though, ive had alot of customer service problems with them, and they tend to try to waste alot of time before solving the problem. I recommend u look into the lycaon swift, better range, higher top speed and their customer service is better, goodluck

  2. Look, I understand how important customer service is but you are giving it way too much of a weight in your reviews. Reviews should be about the board and the board only.. Reviews like this come across as paid! I just can’t understand how you rate a board that goes 11 miles a better review than a board that goes over 20? I will gladly give up a few MPH’s to gain 9+ miles on a charge.

  3. You’ve made a big mistake excluding kit boards like the BKB Duo and Tayto Dual. If the fact that they are kits bothers you, then you should note that both boards can be purchased as kits or completes. Nothing under $1500 is as powerful or customizable as BKB’s boards.

  4. HI I am Robert I am 15 year old. I am newbie in skating and have no experience can you recommend me which skateboard is suitable for me. my budget is 1200$ to 1500$. best regards.

  5. Their major flaw is they really arent that customizable hardware wise, if you want more torque, then your probably should buy bigger more powerful motors, but now you need a new esc that can handle that much power, but now you need a battery that can output that power, but now you need a bigger enclose to fit all of that, but now to fit the motors you probably will need new trucks to be able to mount the motor mounts wide enough to fit them. To upgrade something you need to upgrade almost the whole board. Sure they are cool with customizing in settings but for that price point there are boards with a much better finish, bigger battery, screened remote, better wheels, DKP(not always good but they do cost more to produce). So for a board that literally comes unassembled cutting a lot of cost, I expect much more performance.

  6. You guys never mentioned Miles boards at all. I have 2 of their boards and they are among my favorite boards out of the 5 that I own. It’s hard to even take your reviews serious without mentioning their boards. Was this something that the other manufacturers paid you to review? I’m just saying because I don’t see how you missed all of miles boards being that they are much better quality and performance than the majority of the boards you reviewed. It’s that or they don’t think to highly of your opinions and would rather not be associated with you which is where I’m going to put my money on.

  7. I have a lycaon gr which was great this winter in tahoe with no snow I put 300 miles on it..but then it stoped…meter on the chargeing side of battery reads 21.7 volts and on the big plug to esc reads 6.7 volts….it wont charge or turn on….the power button blinks 3 times and shuts off…ive asked lycaon why or what it means when it blinks and shuts off and get no reply…its a 36 volt deal and I tried a battery with 24 volts and it did the same thing…does it need a 36 volt battery to work at all and if so then hopefully the esc is good just not enough volts? Anyone thinking of opening a repair shop or E store…Lake Tahoe south side needs one bad…any comments or answers please let me know…should I send the whole board back and eat it????

  8. Usually it makes sense not to value customer service. However, in such a small industry where there are frequently breakdown and lemons it actually becomes important to have proper customer support, lest you be left with an expensive brick with broken proprietary parts/software.
    In terms of your specific qualms regarding high rating: these ratings are not universal, and the real purpose of these articles is to give you information so that you can make your own decision. For example, range might be important for one person, but another person might not like the weight while in the city. Not everyone would rock a Lonestar, even though plenty of people have the money.

  9. Hello. I’m writing for several reasons. First, to thank you for all this outstanding info! Second, to give you a big thumbs up for weighting customer service so highly – this is a *critical* feature for most of us, especially when considering the fledgling (close to it anyhow) market being discussed. Simply put customer service is a HUGE part to this topic (I can go on for some time explaining why I think it’s especially true for this product). Third … this comment section is DEAD. I don’t get it. Can you email me to explain why you shut it down? I’d really like some help on this topic, and it appears you know more than most. Please email me!

  10. OK. Not dead! In that case the obvious needs to be stated … how bout your reviews of more recent boards? These things are taking off and so many trying to bust into the market. And the reasons for building your own are changing.

    Any chance you have more recent reviews or just thoughts on where things are at right now?

    Thanks dude

    1. Hi John, sorry for the late reply.
      I’m working right now to update the page.
      Lots of new boards have since arrived on the market. Figuring out which is the best one is not that hard, but to have recommendation for each use case is REALLY difficult. Plus, I am trying my best to evidence-based my recommendation with datas.
      Stay tune!
