Electric Skateboard of the Future

Pushing is so pathetically 90’s. Get over it. No more kicking on that skateboard to get you around! The skateboards of the future are all motorized.

A saw a video about electric skateboards. Since then I have had at least 3 different boards, which is as much a tribute to how much I love these babies. But I still keep purchasing new ones or buy parts for the old ones.

So what’s so awesome about an electric skateboard?

They’re extremely fast. We are talking 20-25 miles per hour and more.
It feels like you are flying extremely low. It somehow feels like your gliding six inches off the pavement. The furthest I got was a 14 mile ride.

You control the board with a pistol grip controller that navigates the acceleration and regenerative braking. The brand I recommend is, E-Glide.
E-Glide has a very good warranty policy. Ninety days guaranty on the board and electronics. The boards also come with a six month battery guaranty.

There are 2 companies who produce these skateboards: Altered, formerly known as Exkate and E-Glide. Altered boards have a cool wireless controller, but the boards are made in China and the customer support isn’t the best.

E-Glide, on the other hand are extremely dedicated and care what they are selling. E-Glide focuses on only using top of the range components to build their motorized skateboards.

I personally ride the E-Glide “44 Magnum” a Madrid board designed by Crossbow USA. Lots of concave, and beautiful lines. At 44 inches in length, it’s a Ferrari among electric skateboards.

Besides being a journalist, author and living with his family in California, Gabriel Perez is a dedicated electric skateboarder and reports about the latest trends and gadgets. For information on electric skateboards and a whole load more just click here.
