Things to consider when buying an Electric Skateboard
If you are after a bit of power when cruising, then an electric skateboard might be perfect for you. An increasing number of people are buying electric skateboards, but it is important that you buy the right one to suit your needs. We have put together a handy buying guide below to help you decide if an electric skateboard is right for you and what you should consider before buying one.
Is it legal to ride an electric skateboard?
Currently, it is illegal to ride electric skateboards on UK pavements, cycle lanes and public roads. However, similarly to electric scooters, it is perfectly legal to enjoy riding an electric skateboard on private land with the land owner’s permission.
How much do electric skateboards cost?
The price of an electric skateboard can generally vary from anywhere between £500 to £2,000. Prices can vary depending on things like the battery size and building parts used, such as wheels, decks and the motor, along with the brand which you are buying from. The maximum speed and range of the electric skateboard as well as the warranty on offer can also influence its price.
Is it worth buying an electric skateboard?
If you love skateboarding and longboarding, then you are going to love riding an electric skateboard! Not only will you be having a great time whilst contributing to a greener environment, but you will also benefit from the assisted power and push under your feet to help you cut through the wind.
Although they can be costly, once your feet are planted onto one of these machines, you will feel unstoppable.
What to consider when choosing an electric skateboard
- Max Speed
- Max Range
- Deck Size
- Max Load
The first thing you will need to consider before buying an electric skateboard is your skill level when it comes to skateboarding. An experienced skateboarder may feel comfortable choosing an electric skateboard with a faster maximum speed than someone who is just starting out.
You will also want to consider how long you plan to spend on your skateboard. If you are one for spending hours of fun riding one of these bad boys without needing to charge it up, then you may want to consider buying one with an increased maximum range! It is also important to consider the skateboard’s maximum load and weight before buying too.
