Electric Skateboard Reviews: The Best Electric Skateboards (2023)
Electric skateboards are freaking amazing — you can zip around town without breaking a sweat and they’re environmentally friendly to boot. They’re so much fun to ride, but you need to do your research before buying one to make sure you get the perfect eboard for your needs.
At Recharged Rides, we’re pumped to bring you detailed, no-holds-barred reviews of today’s best electric skateboards! We’re so excited that we get to rate so many different boards — this puts us in a unique position since we have extensive knowledge of many different brands. Get the skinny on each and every board we’ve reviewed — we’re happy to share that info with you at no cost and you can trust us to help you find a board that’s ideal for your interests and budget.
We rate a variety of different models — whether you’re looking for a high-end model or something more affordable from one of the budget brands, we’ve got you covered. We also review motorized skateboards in different categories, including the following:
- Electric longboards
- Minis and shortboards
- 2 in 1 models
- All-terrain electric skateboards
- Street models
When it comes to reviewing electric skateboards, we take a lot of things into account. Here’s just a small sample of all the things we take into consideration…
Is the particular electric skateboard model a solid value at MSRP? Are there any discounts, promotions, or active coupon codes that you can use to get a better deal on it?
We give you the low down on things like deck concave, lighting, optional add-ons, and more.
What kind of battery pack does the board have? How long does it last, how fast does it charge, does it offer water resistance, and what kind of riding time does it provide?
Is the skateboard durable and well-made, or does it feel flimsy and cheap? Riders regularly get hurt on poor-quality eboards, so this is important.
How far can the board cruise on a single charge? How fast can the board go?
Does the board feature friction braking, dynamic braking, or regenerative braking? Is the braking system effective? What about overall safety and ease of use? Do they provide ample stopping power?
How functional is the board’s remote? Are there connectivity issues? How easy is it to pair with the board after unboxing? What riding modes does it offer?
Is the deck of the electric skateboard well-constructed? What material is it made out of (bamboo, maple, carbon fiber, etc.)? Does it feel sturdy without being overly heavy? Is it comfortable to stand on? How much does it flex and how responsive is it? What’s the maximum weight capacity it will allow? How good is the grip tape?
Does the board have a hub motor or is it powered by a direct drive, gear drive, or belt drive motor? How smooth is the acceleration? How powerful is the electric motor and how well does it handle hill climbing?
What kind of wheels, tires, and trucks does the board have? Are there additional wheel options offered? How long will they hold up for? How much traction do the wheels and tires offer?
How friendly and responsive is the company’s customer service department? What methods of contact do they offer and how quickly do they respond? How long is the manufacturer warranty good for and what does it cover?
Finally, because everyone wants to find a board that they’ll love riding, our testing team will let you know how a board stacks up in terms of overall riding enjoyment. While this is somewhat subjective, we’re convinced that if we enjoyed riding something, you will too.
Lastly, we just want to say that we love receiving comments, questions, recommendations, and reviews from you — thank you for being a part of the Recharged Rides micromobility community!
