It is pretty light considering it has dual electric motor with big battery.
The battery charges pretty fast. It charges around 30-40 minuets. Another cool thing is that you can charge the battery while riding it by doing downhill and applying the brakes. This is very beneficial if you are riding up and down the hill.
Here is really good video of unboxing of Boosted Board and riding it for the first time.
2000W Dual Motor
There are two major benefits come from having Boastedboard’s 2000W Motor. First is the reversible drive. Because in order to come to a complete stop going downhill and to have very fine control of braking, you need a symmetrical motor that you could drive reverse as powerful as you drive forward. Unlike a automobile, motorized skateboard don’t have disc brake, so you have to drive backwards to compensate for the forward momentum. Having reverse drive also enable you to do advance trick like the 180 turn or slide out.
Second is the incredible torque and power it offers so you could climb and go down the steepest hill. Having a fast motor is one thing but without powerful torque, you won’t be able to climb the steep hill smoothly. Also without torque power, you won’t be able to reach the top speed quickly and smoothly. This in itself justifies the enjoyment you’ll get from premium board such as Boosted Board.
Boosted Board remote controller is another components that needs to be mentioned. This wireless controller is spring loaded and it requires gradually more force to turn it further and further. This makes perfect sense, because as you go faster, you need to feel more resistance . This is example of fine detail that they integrated into the Boosted Board for that completely experience. It doesn’t matter if you are driving Lamborghini, if you have crappy controller, the whole experience isn’t complete.
