The Hurricane from Meepo is a stunning electric skateboard model that features a high-quality T700 3k twill carbon fiber deck, double kingpin trucks, and two included wheelsets: 155 x 50mm pneumatic all-terrain wheels, and 90mm x 62mm street wheels. This beast is powered by two 3500W belt drive motors and a 725Wh Molicel P42A battery, giving the board impressive acceleration and hill-climbing capabilities.
Obviously, given the incredibly strong power of this super fast electric skateboard, it’s not as lightweight as many other models on the market. Having said that, the Hurricane is lightweight for its class at only 34 pounds.
Included Accessories & Optional Add ons
As is common with consumer-direct electric skateboard manufacturers these days, Meepo sells a well-rounded array of replacement parts and accessories for the Hurricane, including batteries, chargers, wheels, bearings, bushings, decks, trucks, and more.
Warranty & Customer Service Rating
While Meepo’s other electric skateboards come with a 6-month warranty, the Hurricane includes a beefed-up 1-year warranty which provides you with additional coverage in the event of a manufacturing defect. Unfortunately, there’s no return policy which is a negative, especially for a board in this price range.
Also, whenever we review electric skateboards, we always test the responsiveness of each company’s customer support department to see how long it typically takes them to respond to inquiries. Meepo’s customer service was a bit slower than most to get back to us, taking about 2 and a half days to answer our emailed inquiry…
