Electric skateboards are not as common as e-bikes, especially if you’re considering using one for your daily commute. While not widely believed, there’s no denying that electric skateboards are impossibly cool. When an e-skate rider races past, the scene evokes memories of futuristic movies, with people floating by on hoverboards. We’re not quite there yet, but you can check out this list of the best electric skateboards for sale!
1. Teamgee Behemoth
The Teamgee Behemoth is an absolute monster of an e-skateboard that will turn heads. It’s basically the e-skateboard version of the tech-laden Rivian R1T. They’re packed with features and come with a huge price tag, although the Behemoth looks a lot more intimidating than the Rivian.
Teamgee makes several e-skateboards, but the Behemoth is probably their most intriguing board. Even the name immediately lets you know that this is a beast. The maximum load on this rugged e-skateboard is 440 lbs, which should give you an idea of how strong this skateboard is. The deck is made of carbon fiber, which keeps the weight low. The Behemoth features LED headlights and taillights to keep you visible at all times.
Teamgee is especially proud that the board has suspension inspired by high-end cars. The suspension system is an independently adjusting suspension versus the rigid solid axle of normal skateboards. This suspension allows the Behemoth to navigate rough terrain with ease, adapting the suspension to imperfections that could shake other boards.
If you’re concerned about battery power, the Behemoth has you covered. Teamgee says it has equipped the Behemoth with an EV-inspired battery and can fully charge in three hours. If you like insanely fast e-bikes like the Delfast Top 3.0i, the Teamgee Behemoth is the e-skateboard for you.
- 22 mile range
- IP54 waterproofing
- Top speed of 25 mph
- The board is made of carbon fiber
- Charges from 0% to 100% in 3 hours
- Robust independent suspension system
2. Backfire G2 Black Electric Skateboard
The Backfire G2 is a great looking e-skate at a great price, retailing for $399. If you’re looking for a board that doesn’t overwhelm you with crazy features and just looks like a traditional longboard, this is the board for you . While Backfire has created a stylish design that doesn’t scream electric, this longboard could pass as a conventional longboard to an unwitting passerby. According to Backfire, the lithium-ion battery is good for a range of 18 kilometers. This won’t break any range records, but it’s more than enough for a vehicle in this price range.
Efficient use of battery consumption with a range of up to 18km/11mi on a single charge
This e-skate has urethane wheels, which can make your ride jittery depending on where you ride. But that’s part of the appeal of this board; even the wheels are similar to conventional skateboards. On something like the Behemoth, the wheels are car-like rubber units, which also detract from the skateboard aesthetic. The Backfire G2 is a great board for those transitioning from a traditional skateboard to an electric skateboard. It is also good for new skaters who are just starting out and don’t want to spend a huge budget on their new electric skateboard.
- range of 11 miles
- 96mm urethane wheels
- Affordable price
- LCD remote control with vital statistics
3. Teamgee H20 Electric Skateboard
The Teamgee H20 e-skateboard is a skateboard from Teamgee that is a tad more conventional, especially when compared to their otherworldly looking Behemoth model. The Teamgee H20 features 90mm polyurethane wheels, which give the board a toned down appearance. The ride won’t be as great as the Behemoth, but this is more in line with traditional e-skateboards. The Teamgee H20 will cost you $499 for a fully loaded e-skateboard with great features like a 7.5Ah battery, good for 40 miles of range. It also features a great deck made from maple and fiberglass. Teamgee claims the board has a top speed of 26 mph, which is great.
The H20 electric skateboard is equipped with dual 540W hub motors, so that’s a total of 1,080 watts of power, giving you access to lightning-fast acceleration and a top speed of 26 mph/42 km/h.
The H20 also has four different braking modes, so you can be sure to find the perfect braking balance with one of the modes. The board has a super attractive aesthetic, with the Teamgee logo printed on the sandpaper serving as a really nice touch. The little arrow that informs the rider which way the board should point is also a very nice detail.
- 1080W total power
- Top speed of 26 mph
- 25 mile range
- Four braking modes:
4. Evolve Stoke Series 2″
The Evolve Stoke Series 2 is the type of e-skateboard that you can hang on the wall in the office. It’s seriously so much fun to watch. The design is just perfect and the compact dimensions really complete the look of the skateboard. Another great thing about the Stoke Series 2 is that it really does look like a traditional skateboard, as long as you don’t look under it of course.
This is not a cheap board. Although the Stoke Series 2 will set you back $999, the craftsmanship is second to none. The understated wood color scheme is pleasing to the eye, and the build quality is excellent wherever you look; even the way the back has a little fishtail makes it look unique. The quality extends to the remote control, a unique trigger-shaped aluminum unit. The remote is one of the best if not the best in the business.
- Dual 1500W Motors
- 144Wh battery
- 21.6 lbs total weight
- 10 mile range
