After the founders of this premium brand presented the idea at a TED talk, a highly successful Kickstarter campaign was born. The current range of Boosted boards is very varied in terms of size, battery life and speed capabilities. The most popular of the current range is the Boosted Mini X Electric Skateboard. The key feature of this board is its portability. The board measures 29.5” in length and 11” in width which makes it easy to carry around, whilst still having enough room for stability when riding.
Although small this board still packs a mighty punch in regards to performance. The Mini X has an impressive top speed of 20mph and an extended range of approximately 14miles. Additionally, it has the ability to navigate hill inclines of up to 20% (11.3degrees).
Slick Revolution is a British company based in Southampton that has an exciting range of boards on the market, in both carbon and maple materials. The wonderful key feature of owning Slick Revolution boards is the ability you have to switch from slick to rough stuff wheels – 110mm tall and 85a rated urethane. Travelling over gravel and grit with these rough stuff wheels is easy peasy.
The most popular model in the Slick Revolution range is currently the Slick Revolution Urban 80 Electric Skateboard which is 31.4” and is 10.5” wide, but still easily portable when not in use. This board also boasts a top speed of 22mph with a range of approximately 15miles. It’s ability to climb inclines up to 20% (11.3 degrees) screams adventure!
Evolve is an Australian company based in Gold Coast. Over the past few years their innovation team have really took the idea of combining electric with longboarding and all terrain travel with their 7” all terrain wheels. Evolve also offers multiple deck material choices with a blend of 7ply Canadian maple and 2ply bamboo or carbon.
The brand new Evolve Bamboo GTX Series 2in1 Electric Skateboard is one of the brand’s latest releases. It features some impressive powerful stats with a top speed of 26mph, a range of 18-31 miles (dependant on which wheels are attached) and a hill defeating ability to climb inclines of up to 25% gradient. The deck length of 38” inches gives loads of room to work with for balance, which comes in handy when reaching those top speeds.
Dependant on what you’re going to be using your electric skateboard for, each of these models offer you something different. Whilst the Evolve board benefits from being one of the more powerful boards, it can’t really hold a torch to the Mini X in terms of portability or the versatility of the SR Urban 80.
