Backfire released Backfire Era 2 – Best entry-level Electric Skateboard?

On November 2022, Backfire released a new $399 electric skateboard, the Backfire ERA 2.

TLDR: Backfire Era 2 ($399) is an entry-level affordable electric skateboard. It has good specs and great polish. If you like or can tolerate stiff decks with hub drives, Backfire Era 2 is an unbeatable choice at this price.

We’ve to say that we are a little bit embarrassed that the original Backfire Era completely flew under our radar. You see, Backfire has 2 lines of entry-level electric skateboards that are priced at around $400. There is the well-known Backfire G2 series, and then there is this rather new Backfire Era series.

Backfire G2 Black is a more traditional affordable electric skateboard with a mildly flexible deck, and the Backfire Era 2 is… something else.

Beautiful sleek design

While it is unwise to base your buying decision on the looks of a board… Damn! doesn’t this board looks good?

Backfire Era 2 went with a sleek stealthy design first made famous by the old Exway X1. This means no electronic enclosure bulging out from underneath the deck.

Combining this with hub motors that are integrated into the back wheels, the board can pass as an unpowered traditional longboard. Besides looking good, this is especially helpful for those who live somewhere where electric skateboards aren’t legal.
(Disclaimer: Electric Skateboard HQ does not encourage or condone law-breaking behavior.)

Backfire Era 2 has current-era specs

While the board was priced at only $399, Backfire Era 2 doesn’t skim on the specs.

  • Deck: 38 inch x8.85 inch (96.5CM x 22.5CM)
  • Electronic Speed Controller: Hobbywing ESC with smart turn-on
  • Battery: 5AH; 180Wh LiPo battery
  • Marketed Range: 12-15miles (19~24 km)
  • Motors: 2 x 680W hub-motor
  • Marketed Top Speed:  28mph (46kmh)
  • Trucks: 7″ aluminum trucks
  • Wheels: 90mm streets
  • Weight: 16lbs (7.25kg)
  • Price: $399

For those who are new to the electric skateboarding scene, here is a really brief introduction to each part.

Hobbywing ESC – very smooth and intuitive speed control

Hobbywing ESC has been the gold standard for electronic speed control for more than half a decade now. It provides smooths and intuitive speed control that is loved by beginners and veterans alike. The newer Hobbywing ESC also comes with the “smart turn-on” feature, which means the board will automatically power on when the remote is switched on. This feature doesn’t sound like much, but everyone who had it can’t imagine living without it.

Battery – 180Wh LiPo battery

To fit batteries inside the sleek deck, the Backfire Era 2 uses lithium polymer batteries pack instead of the more typical lithium-ion batteries. Lithium polymer packs are pound-for-pound, more powerful than lithium-ion batteries. However, they also tend to have more longevity issues. It remains to be seen how Backfire Era 2’s battery holds up with time.

When it comes to battery size and range per charge, 5Ah(180Wh) and 12miles (19km) are pretty standard numbers for entry-level electric skateboards. With that said, we were pretty surprised that Backfire manage to pack a good battery while keeping the price below $400, especially when entry-level electric skateboards typically cost between $450-$500, not under $400.

2 x 650W motors are decent. Actually, more than decent.

Backfire Era 2 dual 640W motors are actually above average. For context, the medium motor size for entry-level electric skateboards is around 2 x 540W. When it comes to real-world performance, motor wattage is never the whole story, but having a big number is a good start.

Don’t believe me? Do your own research by using our data (most electric skateboards in the market were included)

The board has a good top speed of 28mph (46kmh), which is typical of entry to mid-level electric skateboard.

Backfire Era 2 might not be for everyone.

Obviously, a deck with integrated electronic is always going to be stiff. This, combined with stiff hub motors means road vibrations are going to be terrible on that the Backfire Era 2. Thankfully, Backfire uses a shock-absorbing grip tape for the Era 2 to ease road vibration, it should help a little bit.

Also, Era 2 may not be the best board for carving fun. Bouncy decks and soft skateboard wheels are known to add smoothness to the ride that makes carving fun and Backfire Era 2’s stiff deck and stiff hub motors are exactly the opposite of that.

What Backfire Era 2 is designed for, however, is a nimble responsive ride.

The sleek design and a biceps-friendly weight of 16 lbs (7.25kg) should make it quite practical for the urban commute. Maybe that’s why Backfire went ahead and include a carrying bag for it right out of the box.

Backfire Era 2 may be the best budget electric skateboard right now

With everything said, $399 is an unbeatable price.

Backfire Era 2 has really good specs for its price. It has the polish and the design of boards that we expect from boards twice its price.

We will give the board a full review soon, but from everything we know now, the Backfire Era 2 is certainly a safe board to pick up right away during Black Friday sales.

Introducing Wowgo Pioneer 4 and Pioneer X4

On October 2022, Wowgo announced a set of new boards, the Wowgo Pioneer 4($649) and Pioneer X4($699). Wowgo Pioneer 4 and the X4 share the same specs, with the only major difference being the drive train they use. In case it wasn’t clear, Pioneer 4 – hub motors; Pioneer X4 – belt motors.

TLDR; Wowgo Pioneer 4(hub) and Pioneer X4(belt) are designed to be smooth rides that maximizes carving fun. The pair also has competitive specs for its asking price (starting at $649).

Wowgo Pioneer 4 and Pioneer X4 with the remote on top of the deck

Despite the new name, the Wowgo Pioneers series is actually not a new line of products, but the 2022 iteration of Wowgo 3 and Wowgo 3x. For those who are new to the sport, Wowgo 3 and 3x were first launched back in October 2019 (time flies!), and are wildly popular for their buttery smooth riding experience.

Looking for a trip down memory lane? Click here to read our review of the Wowgo 3.

What was improved? Everything.

The old Wowgo 3 and 3x were well-rounded boards. Besides the silky smooth riding experience that they were known for, they were completed with above-average power, battery, and polish. So it is easy to see why Wowgo took an ‘ if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it ‘ approach and went for incremental upgrades over a proven formula.

Specification of Wowgo Pioneer 4 and X4

  • Deck: 38.5 inch x11.2 inch (98CM x 28.5CM)
  • Electronic Speed Controller: 12s Hobbywing ESC; 4-speed modes, smart turn-on
  • Battery: 8AH; 12S2P; 345 Wh Samsung 40T (21700)
  • Marketed Range: 21-22miles (33~35 km)
  • Motors: 2 x 680W hub-motor(Pioneer 4), 2 x 700W belt-motor(Pioneer X4)
  • Marketed Top Speed:  28mph (46kmh)
  • Trucks: Wowgo’s Proprietary Trucks (45° truck)
  • Wheels: 90mm streets, 105mm cloudwheels
  • Weight: 18lbs/8.2kg (Pioneer 4) ,18.5lbs/ 8.4kg (Pioneer X4)
  • Price: $649 (Pioneer 4) & $699 (Pioneer X4)

Retaining the silky smooth riding experience

Going with a flexible deck, Hobbywing ESC, and responsive trucks means the Wowgo Pioneers are going to be buttery smooth in both speed control and in carving.

Riding on the Wowgo Pioneer X4

Flexible deck with wide concave

Wowgo Pioneer 4 and X4 uses a 38.5″ deck made from maple, fiberglass, and bamboo. The deck has a good amount of flex, roughly the same amount as the Wowgo 3 and 3X. It has a healthy concave, nothing crazy, just enough to help your feet feel comfortable on it.

Hobbywing V5.0 ESC

At this point, Hobbywing ESC needs no further introduction as it has been the gold standard of smooth and intuitive control for close to half a decade now. The smart power-on feature where the board automatically powers on when switching on the remote is also a universally loved feature that’s available with Hobbywing ESC. With the newer iteration of the Hobbywing V5.0 ESC, we can expect improved power and stronger braking.

Goodbye Paris trucks

Unlike its predecessor, the Pioneer series moved away from using branded Paris trucks. Both are now using Wowgo’s own proprietary trucks. The Pioneer 4 and X4 went with the same set of trucks as the Wowgo Mini 2, with some adjustments being made on the X4 for the belt system.

We reviewed the Wowgo Mini 2 a while back, so while we mourn the loss of Paris trucks, we can vouch for the quality of Wowgo’s proprietary trucks. That trucks are well-balanced and nimble on the feet, and stable at high speed. The Wowgo trucks should do just as well as the Paris, and keep the carving experience smooth and fun.

Wheels – 90mm wheels with 105mm cloudwheels options

Unsurprisingly, the Wowgo Pioneer 4 and X4 come with standard 90mm wheels with the option of including the 105mm cloudwheels for $100 more.

The 90mm wheels are pretty good, all major electric skateboard brand nowadays uses high-quality wheels that are both soft and durable. Soft wheels are keeping with the theme here, as they provide the final touch for a buttery smooth carving experience.

With that said, 105mm cloudwheels, as good as they are, do take away some of the carving fun. Unlike soft urethane wheels, the narrow contact patch of the cloudwheels doesn’t have that ‘sticky ride feel’ that makes carving fun.

Cloudwheels has narrow contact patch

Pioneer 4 vs Pioneer X4 – Hub vs Belt

Also, for those who are not familiar with the difference between drive-train. Hub motors, in this case, Pioneer 4, give a stiffer ride as the hub motors are embedded inside the rear wheels, and that means less soft urethane to absorb vibration.

Hub motors also generate less torque compared to belt-system.The reason? Unlike belt system, there isn’t any gear reduction to amplify the torque.

So why would anyone choose hub(Pioneer 4) over belt(Pioneer X4)?

Well, hub motors (Pioneer 4) are more battery efficient, meaning more range. You also don’t have to replace or maintain the belts, which will break or come loose after some time. Oh also, hubs are silent and free rolls without resistance, making it easier to kick push like a regular longboard.

With all that said, amongst all the variations and combinations, Pioneer X4 with 90mm street will give you the most carving fun, while the Pioneer 4 will get the most from the 105mm cloudwheels, as the extra size helps cushion off harsh bumps from the stiff hub wheels.

Upgraded specs – Bigger battery, stronger motor.

To keep up with the times, Wowgo Pioneer 4 and X4 have received a small boost in both departments.

Bigger battery – 12s2p Samsung 40T

Wowgo Pioneer 4 and X4 are now rocking 12s2p battery (Wowgo 3 used 10s2p), with Samsung 40T no less (vs 18650 cells previously)!

This gives the pair a 345wh battery, with 21-22miles (32-35km) of range.

These are competitive numbers for the price. For context, its closest competitor, the Exway Flex ER ($799) has a similar battery package (12s2p 345wh) while costing $100 extra.

Wanna see the numbers? Check out the data chart that we have painstakingly compiled.

Bigger hobbywing motors – 680W & 700W Hobbywing

So, the Wowgo Pioneer 4 uses a set of 680W hub motors and the Pioneer X4 has a pair of 700W belt motors.

 Wowgo Pioneer X4 belt motor

While wattage number is not the best way to reliably compare motor performance, this is the only information we have at the moment. So, based on the motor wattage, the Pioneer 4 and X4 are 20% stronger than their predecessor and about as strong as any of their similarly priced competitors.

This basically means that the Wowgo Pioneer 4 and X4 are not going to struggle on power and torque, as they improved over the previous Wowgos which were already plenty strong. However, they are also unlikely to give thrilling accelerations or win many drag races as those are not the strongest motor out there. Thrill and power weren’t the ride profile that the series are going for anyways.

The boards have a modest top speed of 28mph (45kmh).

Wowgo Pioneer 4 and Wowgo Pioneer X4 side by side

Takeaways – Wowgo Pioneer 4 and Wowgo Pioneer 4x

It was quite the irony that the Pioneer series is quite the antithesis of innovation. Both the Pioneer 4 and 4X offers nothing new and merely improve over the popular Wowgo 3 and 3X. However, this is not to say that the Pioneers aren’t good boards or weren’t competitive. Actually, it is quite the contrary.

With slight improvements over Wowgo 3’s already very refined riding experience, coupled with well-rounded specs that are competitive at $649-$699, the Wowgo Pioneers 4 and X4 are the definition of a ‘safe choice’ for those who are looking for an enjoyable ride without breaking the bank.

All-new Eovan GTO Silo – All-Terrain Electric Skateboard with Gear Drive!

Featured image Eovan GTO Silo

After a year of hiatus, Eovan is putting out a new board to the market – The Eovan GTO Silo.

TLDR: Eovan GTO Silo is a gear-drive all-terrain electric longboard starting at $1,349(belt drive) & $1,549(gear drive). It has a carbon fiber double-drop deck, uses DKP trucks that can be converted to RKP, and support both 150mm pneumatic wheels and 125mm airless wheels.

For those who are unfamiliar with Eovan, the brand made its name a few years ago with Eovan GTS Carbon Pro. This all-terrain electric skateboard quickly gained popularity amongst eskate enthusiasts for its beefy specs, carbon fiber deck, and for its relatively wallet-friendly price. Evidently, this formula had served Eovan well, as Eovan had stuck with it with the subsequent release – Eovan Carbon Super last year, and the new Eovan GTO Silo today. 

Check out Eovan GTO Silo by clicking here.

A sporty look – with a carbon fiber deck

Eovan has always been very good at designing boards that look sleek and sporty. But of course, any electric skateboard will look good with a carbon fiber deck. For the new GTO Silo, Eovan claims they’ve used better carbon fiber for the deck at a higher cost to further improve its toughness and durability. The deck is 39 inches (100cm) in length and 11 inches (28cm) in width, and have a comfortable concave to help rider secure their feet.

Measurements of Eovan GTO Silo

The deck was designed to be stiff hence prioritizing stability and control. On the flip side, road vibration on the GTO Silo would be worse as compared to boards with flexible wooden decks, and that’s probably why Eovan put a lot of hexagon foam grips on the deck. 

Carbon Fiber deck of Eovan GTO SIlo

Very beefy specs – 12s5p molicels

As per tradition, Eovan tried to pack as much into the GTO Silo as possible.

For battery, it went with a gigantic pack of Molicel P42 battery(21700 cells) in 12s5p configuration. This 21AH battery pack promised up to 31miles (50km) of range, which is higher than most electric skateboards in this category.

For context, Evolve Carbon Hadean, Exway Atlas and Meepo Hurricane all come with a smaller 12s4p battery pack. Besides, Molicel are great battery cells, so this wasn’t the case of ‘using cheap cells to pad up the specs’.

Gear Drive debut

While the carbon fiber deck is cool and the battery is great, what interested us the most about the Eovan GTO Silo is the gear drive.

Gear drive of Eovan GTO Silo

This is the first time Eovan put a gear drive into any of its boards. 

The previous Eovan boards were all runs on belt drives, which were good in providing torque and power but weren’t as ‘fuel efficient’ as hubs or gear drives. (Also, belts needed to be changed from time to time.) 

You do get different motor noises with gear drives (which often are higher pitched), but Eovan claims this gear drive they are using is quieter than its belt predecessor. Anyways, hardly anyone cares about motor noise unless it is annoyingly loud and from the looks of it, the gear drives on GTO Silo won’t be. 

Eovan GTO Silo infographics

With 2 x 3500W motor (6374, 170kv) driving it, the board has plenty of power, with a marketed top speed of 36mph+ (58kmh+). Not many people feel comfortable riding that fast, but having this much power means no hill is too steep, and quicker take-off from traffic stops.

For those who don’t buy into the gear drive hype, going with the belt version ($1,349) will save you $200 bucks.

Hobbywing ESC – industry standard

It’s important to have smooth and intuitive speed control to pair with a high top speed, and Hobbywing ESC will definitely give you that. 

The previous Eovans’ has been using VESC with proprietary settings, while VESC sounds better on paper, many riders find fault with how Eovan had the setting configured right out of the box. 

While eskate enthusiasts might prefer a VESC as it allows user customization, we think most eskater will prefer not to go through the trouble and instead, get a well-tuned ESC right out of the box, and that’s exactly what Hobbywing ESC is going to get you. 

Hobbywing ESC has more than proven itself and is almost universally loved, so going with it makes perfect sense in our mind.

Trucks – to DKP or not to DKP

Double Kingpin Trucks (DKP) are a common choice for big heavy all-terrain electric skateboards in order to make turning easier and the turning radius smaller. However, many DKP critics had argued that, for a board that’s clearly designed to go fast (which GTO Silo clearly was), going with a more turn-y and less stable DKP doesn’t make sense. 

Plus, not all double kingpin trucks are created equal, and the previous trucks that Eovan uses were reported to be, well..,bad. (A lot of slopes, poor return to center.) 

So, it is good news that the trucks on the GTO Silo have been reworked, and it’s not the same double kingpin trucks from the older Eovans.

Eovan GTO silo trucks

On top of that, the new trucks are designed to allow conversion between DKP set-up and regular reversed kingpin set-up, giving DKP haters an easy way to convert back into good ol’ RKP trucks.

Will the new redesigned DKP trucks be good? 
Will the reversed kingpin set-up please DKP-haters?
Or will this feature be a terrible gimmick, resulting in a truck that can neither turn well nor remain stable?

We are looking forward to finding out!

Wheels – big AT and smaller AT wheels

Eovan GTO Silo comes with two wheel options. A 155mm AT pneumatic wheel, and a 125mm airless rubber wheel for semi-AT uses. The board has a 3.9-inch (10cm) clearance from the floor, so street wheels are definitely out of the question.

Eovan GTO Silo wheels

Eovan GTO Silo – Specification at a glance:

  • Deck: 39 inch x11 inch (100CM x 28.8CM)
  • Electronic Speed Controller: 12s Hobbywing ESC; 4-speed modes, smart turn-on, in-app customization feature

  • Price: $1,349(belt drive) & $1,549(gear drive)

Check out our infographics and comparison chart to visualize how Eovan GTO Silo stacks up

Final words – Eovan GTO Silo:

For the starting price of $1,349, Eovan GTO Silo tops the competition with its specs. It has a bigger battery than the also-recently-released Meepo Hurricane Ultra, and is much cheaper than the $1,599 Exway Atlas Pro.

Eovan GTO Silo stock photo

With that said, it is still quite hard to predict how well the Eovan GTO Silo will be received, as anything short of an amazing riding experience will be a huge disappointment for boards at this price. However, with everything we already know about the board, from the battery to the ESC, GTO Silo looks promising, lets’s just hope the new truck rides well.

Definitely a board worth keeping an eye out for.

Electric Skateboarding is quietly having a very good year

When Boosted went down, I was very concerned. I was concerned not to the fact that we lost an eskate option, but to the fact that the electric skateboarding sport has lost its biggest advocate.

Without Boosted continued effort to promote electric skateboarding, fewer and fewer people might get into the sport, or so I feared.

However, time proved that the worry was unfounded.

Boosted went out of business in March 2020, and then the pandemic hit. These should be two huge blows to the niche, but what we see is that the interest in electric skateboarding remains strong.

Take a look at the Google Trend:

The interest in Electric Skateboarding (blue), based on the number of google searches on the term “Electric skateboard”, stayed the same as before the pandemic hits.

Since 2020 and into 2021, we see existing brands continue to expand and release new products, and from where we (ElectricSkateboardHQ) sits, we received even more request for reviews from both existing and new brands that we could barely keep up.

If new boards and new brands are not a good indicator of sales, sales of electric skateboards on Amazon definitely should be. Not sure if anyone noticed, but electric skateboards are selling quite well on Amazon to the point that Meepo V3 once sat on the bestseller list under the board category “Longboards”. Everyone who was looking for a standard longboard on Amazon will be greeted by this thing call electric skateboards. Free promotion for electric skateboarding!


I guess I’m just happy that the sport is growing. Hopefully, with more people into the niche, electric skateboarding can be as mainstream as cycling both as a form of commute and as a hobby. Maybe then, legislators will stop asking us to install handlebars on eskate! 

Evolve launches the Hadean Series – How does it fare amongst competitors?

Yesterday (1st July 2021), Evolve Electric Skateboard launched a new line-up of electric skateboards, the Hadean series. Unlike many assumed, the Hadean series will not replace the existing GTR series but lives alongside it, or to put it more accurately, “above it”.

The most unexpected part of it? The price!

Evolve Hadean Bamboo starts at $2,549 USD and the Hadean Carbon at $2,899 USD. This put it amongst boutiques boards such as the Metroboard X ($2,574-$2,699), Kaly board ($2,850-$3,600) and the Lacroix family ($2,500 – $4,000). Heck, you could even get a heavy-duty all-terrain board such as the Propel X4s ($2,650) that has a spec that blew Hadean series out of the water!!

Evolve Hadean Series, the specs:

What’s great about the Evolve Hadean Series

To summarised the points on Evolves’ YouTube marketing video for the Hadean (as compare to Evolve GTR):

  • Big battery with 21700 cells (12s4p)
  • Stronger Motor (3000W x 2, 6368)
  • More durable remote
  • More refined speed control (FOC finally)
  • Smart power on (finally!)
  • Cool Design
    • Forged Carbon Chassis for the Hadean Carbon
    • Board length RGB LED lights
  • Other things that refined the riding experience
    • Less likely to overheat
    • Refined deck: Wider deck, and longer wheelbase for comfort

The best Evolve yet

After laying down all the strengths of the Evolve Hadean, everybody should agree that the Hadean is a significant improvement over the older GTR series. Many in the sport love Evolve for the refined design, polished build, and the feel-good factor that comes from the power of the brand.

The critiques, however, will be quick to point out that the best Evolve, are no better than other boards that we already have, and Hadean is at this point, just playing catch up on spec, while also being massively overpriced.

What Evolve fixed with Hadean, has always been what they are notoriously bad about. Evolve’s speed control has always been lagging behind the popular Hobbywing ESC, which had been using FOC for years; having 2 powerful motors doesn’t justify the price when you can just instead put 4 regular motors and make it an all wheel drive.

Evolve Hadean, will inevitably be compared to the Exway Atlas, which are only shipping now after delays due to battery supply shortage, and I’ll leave you with the charts to compare.

At the end of the day, Evolve’s Hadean Series is a great board for Evolve Rider that wants something more.

At the end of the day, Evolve Hadean is a product designed and made for Evolve fans who wants more. Better control, better power, more range, more refined ride, Hadean is definitely going to deliver on those. If you aren’t an Evolve fan to begin with, Hadean is very unlikely to be the product that makes you fall in love with the brand.

Evolve’s Press Release: Evolve skateboards launches the Hadean Series

Queensland, Australia, July 1, 2021 – Evolve Skateboards, the global leader in electric skateboards, has announced the official launch of the Hadean Series. Haden will offer four times more performance than its predecessor the GTR series which was launched in 2019 and 37% more battery capacity with a top speed of 31mph, making it the most advanced electric skateboard ever produced. 

The Hadean Carbon is the world’s first chassis style frame, a patent-pending design that allowed Evolve to increase performance without compromising on size and the sleek low profile look they are known for. To achieve the strength required in the deck frame construction Evolve came up with another first for electric skateboarding – forged carbon fiber, the likes of which can be found on top-of-the-line high-performance supercars like Lamborghini. The deck also includes another first for the industry, air vents, which help to keep the internal electronics cool. 

“Since the successful launch of our Carbon GTR series in 2019, we have looked to advance our product into a board that produces greater performance while maintaining the sleek, integrated electrical design the GTR is famous for,” said Jeff Anning, Founder of Evolve Skatebaords. “Improved performance required increased size of the battery and motors and this innovation overcame a size constraint that could improve the users’ control and riding experience.”

Evolve has teamed up with an Australian company that excels in motor controller design to create an entirely new proprietary motor controller for the brand, the E-FOC. With experience in military drones and other high-end products, the teams collaborated on everything from schematics to the highest quality bill of materials to ensure the E-FOC is the most advanced motor controller Evolve has ever created, revolutionising how smoothly a rider can harness the intense power produced by the Hadean’s dual 3000w motors and 12S battery structure. 

The Hadean Carbon is the world’s first “chassis” skateboard deck, composed of forged carbon fiber, a material found in aircraft and race cars. The seamless integration of technology and ride performance is achieved through a forged carbon composite frame. The high fiber content and variation in strand orientation creates the strength needed to support a next-generation electric system without adding unnecessary bulk. With this board, the rider will experience better performance, including speed and range, without compromising the best riding feeling.

The Hadean Series uses 21700 lithium-Ion battery cells and 2 x 3000-watt electric motors to power itself. It produces zero carbon emissions and can travel up to 43 miles on a single charge. Due to its portable nature, it is an ideal, environmentally friendly urban form of transportation. Sustainable and active commuting is here to stay.


Remote: The Phaze remote has a new design for hardcore conditions. It is built to last, housed in a machined alloy frame with rubber sides. It also hosts an array of smart features such as speed control, light adjustments, and board diagnostics.

Smart lighting system: The Bluetooth connection between the Phaze remote and deck provides real-time hazard lights when the brake is applied, enhancing both the rider and surrounding individual’s safety when travelling. The lights also serve as an indicator for low-battery, board updates and various other scenarios.

App: The Explore by Evolve App opens even greater levels of customization, with the introduction of power, acceleration and brake curves and a user may also dial in their inbuilt lights with dual colors and full RGB color selection. The app can also be used to view board diagnostics and track their rides using GPS to compete on a global leader board.

Perfect Stance: We have refined the contours and widths of our decks to provide the optimal stance for all riders, creating space for a wider foot stance without expanding the wheelbase of the board.

Versatility: The 2-in-1 version, which includes the all-terrain and street set up, are available for both decks.
