Electric Skateboard Comparison Chart (June 2017)

Edit: Chart updated at 9/6/17 after a few error were pointed out by fellow Redditor.
Correction made: Arc Board range, Metroboard speed.
Marbel 2.0 charted.
Motor type included in the graph as suggested by /u/tm0587.
Any other error please do let me know in the comments, thank you!

There are so many electric skateboards out on the market right now, that it is very difficult to compare board to board even on a narrow dimension such as only the speed and range.
Thanks to the spreadsheet made public by /u/Eboarding, I made a few charts to help visualize the state of electric skateboard right now.

There were only 3 things shown in the chart. The top speed of the board, the range of the board and the weight of the board. (Weight was shown as the size of the bubble.)
Sadly, I couldn’t include other factors into a single chart, such as the type of motor, is the battery exchangeable, is the board waterproof and other features.

Interesting things were shown by the chart:

Best value per dollar?

I was curious what electric skateboard give the best value per dollar performance wise.

So I used a simple formula (Top Speed+Range)/Price to plot another chart comparing boards.

Granted, this was a very crude way to measure performance not to mention the quality of the board and the features of the boards were not considered. Even if not completely useful, it is interesting.

PS: Comparing just top speed and price yield a similar graph.

Crude as it is, something interesting can be seen here:

  • It won’t surprise anyone that generic board such as Genesis Hellfire, LiftBoard were among best performers per dollar.
  • Yuneec E-go2 was well known for its cheap price and good range, so it is no surprise that it is one of the best value board on the chart.
  • The Mellow has high aspiration on quality and hence comes with a hefty price. Hence, it was expected to have the poorest performance/price ratio.
  • Arc board is the most premium small board of all, probably the best in quality too.
  • Walnutt Spectra Mini promised a lot for its price and size. That’s why I backed one. Let’s hope it doesn’t over promise and under deliver.

I hope the charts somewhat helps you to have an idea on the boards that are available right now, and help you make a buying decision.

By the way, Walnutt Spectra’s Indiegogo campaign is finishing in days and Raptor 2’s promo and free shipping might be ending soon.

I apologize if I get any specification wrong, and as the price of the board keeps changing, the chart might become obsolete with time.

Let me know in the comment if you too find the chart interesting.!

    1. Hey we meet again!
      1 week using my free time after work.

      It was difficult and daunting process for me but the end result is just so satisfying.

      Plus now I can use the chart to gauge new boards that comes out!

      Worth it!

  1. The Jed Board Specs here don’t align with whats on the site and in other articles of info, is this like placeholder until the board can be reviewed or based on any test?

  2. This is a fantastic analysis. The best comparison I have found in google about skateboards. Thanks for the great work on this.

    Carlos

    1. glad you like it! I am updating the top speed VS range chart from time to time! You can check it out at the Comparison chart and infographics tab!
