Now I KNOW I Made The Right Purchase
Shipping was super fast from the US office. Waiting for the first charge was agony--I couldn't wait to try it out! This board is all I dreamed it would be. It has plenty of power, and accelerates up the steep hills in my neighborhood as if it was on the flats. Regenerative braking down steep hills can bring the board to a gentle near-stop in a couple seconds. And, it's very quiet. Handling is decent out of the box, but I installed a Riptide kit (their recommended bushing setup for this board), and now it works perfectly for me--carvey and no speed wobbles, but just enough responsiveness at high speed to keep me paying attention. The build quality of this board is excellent. It screams "high end tech toy for grown ups." Reminds me of a refined sports car. Onsra, you've made me a happy 57teen year old!
New rider here. Fantastic range, doesn't overheat, rides well and looks awesome. I can nitpick and say that it is easy to get dirty and kinda difficult to clean but those are semantics. It is beginner friendly and there is a short break-in period. Recommending this to everybody!
Great smooth ride climbs hills at ease very powerful love my board ride it daily
Dreams can come true
I've been a snowboarder all my life and have always fantasized about being able to "ride" on the streets. The future is now. I specifically sought out a board that would mimic snowboarding as closely as possible and this board is an incredible experience. Once I tightened the bushings as much as possible (will still get harder ones in the future) it took about 5 miles for me to get comfortable in the lowest speed setting and ready to crank up the juice. Because the power is on the back wheels I'd liken it most closely to powder riding, pushing through the turns on the back foot to handle the torque of these massive motors. I snowboard in a very duck stance and it translated very easily and quickly to this board, even though the stance is much tighter than my snowboard. I now want to ride this everywhere around my city instead of my bike. Less exercise but oh so much moar fun!
This is my first electronic skateboard and I love it. The ride feels incredibly natural coming from a longboard and the rubber wheels make for a very comfortable ride. I couldn’t be more happy with this board as it’s exactly what I wanted: a high quality board that’s got a lot of speed and solid range. It’s stealthy and practically silent. I only got 50 miles on it but I haven’t had any apparent issues. I’m looking forward to many more miles on this board. The only thing I would advise against would be taking this board on any rough terrain due to the low clearance of the direct drive motors. It’s not really a problem on the streets, but the motors will take some hits from bigger rocks. If you’re sticking to the streets, I couldn’t recommend this board more.
