Electric Skateboard – The Next Generation of Alternative Transportation?

Two years ago I saw something on the web that completely changed my life!

A video about electrical skateboards. Ever since I have actually had at least 3 various boards, which is as much a homage to just how much I like these children. However sadly as it is to their biggest weakness, they break easily. However I still keep purchasing new ones or buying parts for the old ones.

“The electrical skateboard was invented by Californian Louis Finkle. Louis made the very first analogue electric skateboard in 1993. It then took 7 years to make it to production, and thirteen years later it has yet to reach the tipping point where we currently stand on the edge of mass appeal of electric skateboards”.

So exactly what is so fantastic about an electrical skateboard?

They’re very fast. We are talking 20-25 mph and more. Beware!!!
Besides being quickly, it’s unbelievable ENJOYABLE!!!

Instead of taking a cars and truck for short trips, I now glide my method to the newspaper stand and back.

It seems like you are flying extremely low. When you zoom around you have the tendency to look forward (obviously), suggesting you never ever see your feet. It in some way feels like your sliding 6 inches off the pavement.

The range is likewise quite decent. The outermost I got was a 14 mile trip. After wards the battery required a full charge up.

You control the board with a pistol grip controller that controls the velocity and regenerative braking. It is quite easy to ride an electrical skateboard even if you have never ridden a skateboard before. If you ask me, it is a lot simpler than a regular skateboard as you constantly have both feet on the deck.

The only drawbacks of the electric skateboard are that they break relatively quickly and go slowly up hills. The brand name I suggest, E-Glide, has a good warranty. 90-day guarantee on the board and electronics. 6-month battery warranty.

There is 2 business who make these boards: Modified, previously known as Skate, and E-Glide. Altered boards have a cool wireless controller, but the boards are made in China and the consumer support is not the best.

E-Glide, on the other hand, are extremely committed and care exactly what they are offering. They concentrate on just using top of the variety elements to develop their electrical skateboards. Additionally, they are the only electric skateboard business who doesn’t import premade powerboards from China.

I personally ride the E-Glide “44 Magnum” a Madrid board created by Crossbow U.S.A. Lots of concave, and beautiful lines. At 44 inches in length, it is a Ferrari among electrical skateboards.

Up until somebody creates the Hoverboard, these infants are it!!!
