Use: Commuting to and from work (2 miles each way) and to travel with to commute to and from hotels!
First let’s do a little house keeping
1.) For those who complain about range. First, boosted boards have a much higher wattage motor than other boards.. this is how they achieve their speed and how they are able to climb hills.. But, the standard battery is just under the TSA limit of being able to be carried on a plane.. Keep in mind, boosted does offer a higher capacity battery but legally, it can’t be carried on planes. Since I use this for travel, I need the standard battery. Just charge whenever you see an outlet that’s open! Simple!
2.) I never skateboarded in my life when I got one of these.. By day two I was traveling over 10MPH without any issues.. day one was a piece of cake as well but I took it slow to learn.. Basically, you don’t have to be a skateboarder or longboarder to use this!
1.) Plenty of Speed
2.) Easy to use and learn
3.) Two battery sizes available. That that is TSA air travel friendly and one thats not, but gets a long range.
4.) Saves Money – Yes these are pricy but think about one trip that requires Uber, Cabs, or whatever.. how much do you spend? Exactly, these end up saving money and saving it very quickly..
5.) Most parts are standard so can be changed easily BUT boosted does use some of the best parts out there (again, making this board a good value) so upgrades shouldn’t be needed.
6.) Charges Faily quickly so easy to charge while at work or whatnot.. can be charged at any outlet. I have charged mine in coffee shops while I wait, donut shops, fast food joints that are setup for laptop charging and more.. if you charge anywhere you can, you shouldn’t need to worry about running out of juice.. mines never been dead
7.) Fairly easy to manually push if you are out of juice
8.) Although not recommended, accidentally hitting water or running into puddles has never bothered mine.. I try not to use it on days where they are calling for rain but have been caught in a few storms or pop-up showers.. never had any issues
9.) Great quality board.. has just enough give to make it comfortable, but strong enough not to worry about it breaking
Overall: Simple to use, easy to learn, great distance, and very high quality!
