✅ TOP 5: Best Electric Skateboard 2019


We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it
again: humanity is living in the golden age of rideable technology right now. Over the past few years, electric motors have
become smaller and more powerful, while batteries have become more power dense and accessible
— two trends that have coalesced and kicked off a renaissance in personal transportation
devices. Before we get started with our video detailing
the best electric skateboards on the market, we have included links in the description
for each product mentioned, so make sure you check those out to see which one is in your
budget range. Starting off with the best overall electric
skateboard we have the INBOARD M1. Electric skateboards have been getting better
and better over the last couple years, but for some reason, most of them still suffer
from the same big drawbacks: they’re cumbersome to carry around, and practically impossible
to ride like a normal skateboard when the battery dies. But the Inboard M1 is different. Inboard designed this beast from the ground
up to address all the pain points that come with other electric boards, and after whipping
it around the convention center parking lot at CES, I’m here to tell you that they absolutely
nailed it. This board blows every other electric skateboard
out of the water. A myriad of features separate the M1 from
the rest of the pack, but the secret sauce is really in the wheels. Instead of using a belt-drive or gear system
like you’ll find on every other electric skate, Inboard’s M1 is equipped with two
hub motors built directly into the rear wheels. This configuration not only makes the board
more quick and responsive; it also allows the wheels to spin freely when the motors
aren’t engaged — so even when the battery dies, you’re still free to push, slide,
and bomb down hills just like you would on an regular longboard. The battery system is also pretty brilliant. Rather than following the crowd and using
a fixed rechargeable battery, Inboard built the M1 with an interchangeable power system
wherein the batteries can be swapped. This means that when you inevitably run out
of juice, you don’t have to plug this board in and wait around for it to recharge — you
can just pull your spare battery out, pop it into the deck, and keep riding. Inboard made some really smart design choices
here, and they all come together to provide one of the most enjoyable riding experiences
I’ve ever had on an electric board. The M1 feels fantastic under your feet. When you let off the throttle, the board just
coasts along — there’s no belt-induced resistance to give you that unintentional
brake effect. This, along with the board’s relatively
low weight, makes the ride feel drastically more fluid and free than other electric skateboards
I’ve tried. If you’re in the market for an electric
skateboard, this one should definitely be on your radar. You’ll need to dish out $1,400 to get your
hands on one, which is definitely not a small amount of money — but in my opinion the
unparalleled riding experience justifies the high price tag. Inboard is currently finishing up production,
and expects to start shipping the boards to customers in the next few months, so keep
an eye out for the M1 sometime around May. Next up we have the best commuter skateboard
which goes to the Boosted Mini S. Boosted makes some of the best electric longboards
in the biz, and the Mini is no exception. Despite the fact that it doesn’t boast quite
as much battery life as its larger siblings, it makes up for that shortcoming with a myriad
of awesome features. Our favorite? The deck. It’s got this lovely radial concave shape
that provides a comfortable yet responsive platform for you to stand on, and this time
Boosted even gave it a kicktail. This makes it much easier to whip the board
around and perform tight turns when necessary. The Mini’s deck is also considerably shorter
than that of previous Boosted boards, so it’s super easy to pick up and take on a bus/train/whatever. This board also comes with Boosted’s top-notch
control system, and therefore provides extremely smooth acceleration/deceleration while you
ride. On cheaper boards, acceleration and braking
is either to fast and jarring, or too mellow and sluggish — but Boosted boards strike
a perfect balance. The Mini feels powerful yet controlled under
your feet, allowing you to ride confidently no matter what your skill level. This board is absolutely ideal for commuters. Up next we have the most powerful skateboard
which goes to the ACTON BLINK QU4TRO. On paper, the Quatro is a beast. This monstrosity of a skateboard carries four
hub motors (one in each wheel) that collectively provide 2,000 watts of power, and propel the
board along at speeds up to 23 miles per hour. It also has insane amounts of torque — enough
to push a car on flat ground, or propel a 165 pound rider over a hill with a 30-percent
grade. Think San Francisco steep. On top of that, it’s also equipped with
a massive battery that fills up the majority of the board’s 39-inch deck, and provides
over 22 miles of range on a single charge. To hold all that battery, the board is constructed
from aircraft-grade aluminum, and feels extremely sturdy as a result. You’ll also notice a handful of little flourishes
that don’t come standard on most electric longboards — things like lights around all
four sides, and an innovative suspension system built into the trucks. It’s easily one of the most feature-packed
eboards we’ve ever stood on. The Quatro’s burly four-wheel drive system
and outrageous amounts of speed and torque are arguably the board’s biggest selling
points, but they’re really just the tip of the iceberg. There’s a lot going on behind the scenes
that gives the Quatro an extremely polished underfoot feel. First and foremost, there’s the motors. Unlike some other boards on the market, the
Quatro sports a set of hub motors, meaning the motors live inside the wheel and don’t
need to be attached via a belt or chain. This essentially means that the Quatro’s
wheels roll with less resistance when they’re unpowered, allowing you to coast freely when
you let off the throttle, and also push the board manually if necessary. Unfortunately, the Quatro’s massive weight
(24 pounds) means it’s a bit of a chore to push even with the low-friction drive mechanism,
but to be fair, the board has such a ridiculously long range that you’ll rarely need to kick
it manually. In addition to the board’s fantastic coasting
abilities, the Quatro’s throttle is exquisitely well-tuned. Both acceleration and deceleration are incredibly
smooth, and actuated in a gradual manner that doesn’t throw you off balance — even if
you’re quick and heavy on the throttle. It’s definitely still possible to accelerate
or decelerate too hard and send yourself flying onto the pavement (especially in “Pro”
mode), but Acton’s throttle and brakes are far less touchy compared to most other eboards
we’ve ridden. Next we have the best designed electric skateboard
which goes to the OneWheel Plus. We checked out the original Onewheel a few
years back, and more recently got a chance to rip the new-and-improved version around
PDX — and although it isn’t what you’d typically consider a traditional skateboard,
it’s still one of our favorite rideable gizmos of all time. To be perfectly honest, the only reason we
didn’t give it our top spot as the best overall electric skatebaord is because it’s
not really a skateboard. In addition to bearing little resemblance
to a traditional skate, it also feels completely different under your feet. The ride is more like a strange blend of snowboarding,
wakeboarding, and skateboaring — and once you get the hang of it, it’s nothing short
of addicting. The best part is that it’s pretty much all-terrain. The big go-kart wheel between your feet allows
you to tromp over just about anything — gravel driveways, small potholes, and even muddy
patches of grass. This makes the Onewheel far more free and
dynamic than a traditional longboard. You don’t necessarily have to stick to sidewalks
and streets. When the going gets tough and you find yourself
on a patch of dirt or gravel, you can just bend your knees and blast through. This is the rideable device to get! Up next we have the best budget board which
goes to the ACTON BLINK LITE V2. While frequent skaters may prefer to invest
in a premium electric skateboard, folks who use their board less often or primarily on
the weekends may want to start with a budget option. The Blink Lite, for example, is a lot less
expensive than many of the others on this list — which is perfect for someone looking
for a more casual way to get around town. Weighing just 7.7 pounds, this sucker is one
of the lightest electric skateboards on the market right now. Its maximum power output is just over half
of the larger Blink S2 board, but its range is just 1.5 miles short, standing at 5 miles. One of the neater features is actually off
the board — Acton allows its Blink Board users to connect to the Acton app to log miles,
record routes, and document adventures. You can even participate in challenges against
other riders. Just don’t expect to rip this little guy
up any big hills. It just doesn’t have the oomph to make it
happen! And for our last pick we have the smoothest
ride electric skateboard which goes to the Boosted 2 Dual plus. In addition to Boosted’s fantastic handheld
throttle mechanism, the board’s motors are exquisitely well-tuned — so much so that
we dare say they offer the smoothest acceleration and deceleration of any electric board we’ve
ever ridden. On most boards, you’ll experience a bit
of a jarring effect when you hit the throttle or brakes, no matter how hard or soft you
try to accelerate. This is especially pronounced when starting
from a dead stop. More often than not, the average board will
speed up too quickly for your muscles to adjust, thereby throwing you off balance — but we
experienced no such effect with the Boosted 2 Dual+. Bringing yourself to a gentle stop doesn’t
require an ultra-delicate touch on the decelerator. You can actually mash the brakes fairly hard
without flying off the front of your board, because the motors slow you down in a gradual
(but still strong) way. As an added bonus, the board’s software
can be tuned to suit different users. If you’re a beginner, you can limit the
board to a top speed of 11 mph, and make acceleration/deceleration even more gradual than it usually is. If you want a bit more speed, but don’t
want to eat up all your battery power, just put the board in Eco mode; it’ll top out
at 16 mph, but leave you enough oomph to power up moderately-sized hills. And if you’re a real ripper, you can kick
the board into either Pro or Expert modes — both of which will get you up to (or over)
20 miles per hour. Toggling between these modes is as easy as
pressing a button on the controller. So that sums up our top electric skateboards
of 2019. We hope you enjoyed. If you did please leave a like on the video

The inboard is trash loads of overheating issues and trash 3 miles of range dont do videos like this without owning them

Lol, I've never seen your channel but this vid somehow gets in my subbox.

Not complaining though, don't get me wrong haha

Are you guys blind!!!! What about the Carbon or the Enertion Raptor? They get more distance and have way more power.

Wowgo, meepo even Backfire and the like midrange boards are one in the same. MADE IN CHINA. and they all source the same materials and they all have the same complaints online and in open forums with the same issues…..dont believe a word I am saying and look It up! If you want an electric skateboard that is of course cheaper than evolve and boosted. Go with a company that utilizes a 1800 number and customer service that has the ability to speak clear English or go with a company that is in the USA so when those technical issues due arise your situations can be better dealt with. At least in the USA you can file complaints with the BBB ( Better Business Bureau) and you have someone who can go to bat for you. If your company is in CHINA guess what? I think you know the answer to that? And finally dont ever spend more than 300 bucks for a company in a foreign land other than yours. You will never see your money again if something goes wrong 😀👌
I should do my own review and share HONESTY ON YOUTUBE instead of being a sellout for a company who doesn't even know I am alive all so they can send me FREE SHIT or make a few bucks on YouTube!

Your list is a joke. The inboard m1 at number 1 lol the backfire g2t, meepo classic, wowgo 3s, ownboard w2, exway x1 pro, any boosted board, slick revolution, evolve gtr, LaCroix, Kaly.NYC, Enertion Raptor 2.1, …..
That's just a few that are way way better than the inboard m1. Also the m1 is now only $550 not $1400.

Go diy… you will leave people on these boards in the dust and have a great experience building. I promise you will never consider a prebuilt again 🙂

These are ALL USA manufacturers. I don't trust this list, as the Chinese eboards are a terrific value at 1/3 the price of the US manufacturers. Before you buy, at the least, be sure to check out the WowGo 2s, everyone.

I assumed this video was downvoted because electric skateboards are for millennial gaywads. Apparently not.

I'm totally stunned the Exway x1 pro wasn't on this list…. I've ridden them all and my top boards are the Onewheel xr and the Exway x1 pro. You simply cant beat the price of the Exway for what it is… damn near water proof, faster than the boosted with more range and only $1,000!

Only US$299,NEW 30MPH 48km/h,Cheapest Powerful Bamboo Electric Skateboard: welcome order online on Alibaba:

https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/C4B-Fast-48km-h-Dual-hub_60546457502.html?spm=a2747.manage.0.0.647071d2gC881Q

When we searched for the best priced elctrician in Gainesvill FL, Mr. Electric Videos kept showing up and we knew they were cmmitted to getting their message out to their prospective customers and we respected that commitment.

You forgort the Meepo Boards, i got a Meepo V2 30" and it has most of the features of the Boards tested here, but it is 460 Dollars so cheap as F….

This is a really bad video there are way better boards then these haha wtf i wouldnt buy half of these. Probably just the onewheel. Wake up people this is a commercial!

Ok, as for someone who is a completely new into these E-Skateboard world, I'm really interested to get one, any recommendation? The Inboard M1 Sounds promising?

Forgive me if this is a dumb question, but If I don't skateboard, which board would you guys recommend?

Seen a dude at the dog park w a v1 boosted now I want a stealth .. seems like the most consistent best bang for your buck

I contacted M1 the other day and they literally said they aren't doing the M1 Skateboard anymore…

NO NO NO not even close to the best boards ,Kaly, Etoxx,Baja and Lacroix will eat these boards. This is just paid advertisement

This is the most garbage list I've ever seen. To any newbies watching this video, ignore the entire list. Endorsing the Acton Quattro should be a crime.

I went to Inboard and they aren't manufacturing the m1 anymore. They're going for the electric scooter market. FUCKING SCOOTERS

All test are really good thank you… You think Exway x1pro can be in the Best TOP 5, with the riot pack option it will be number 1 …. Test in my channel –> https://www.youtube.com/Josette321

Could you please review this one? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07TJXRNF5 I'm looking for some E-board for my brother who has never used this kind of skateboard before, and he's just 12. I hope you can review some E-board for beginner or young kids like my brother, please
