Airwheel is a great electric skateboard with exceptional looks. The minimalistic appearance that breathes with old school design will simply leave you breathless. The deck is made out of high quality maple wood and is topped off with solid grip tape that will ensure you get the maximum stability and comfort while skating around the block.
Regarding the maximum allowed load, you will be happy to be informed this little guy supports up to 100 kgs which is equivalent to 220 lbs. Moreover, it packs quite the punch for an extremely affordable price of just above $400. That’s quite the bargain considering this model features top speeds of up to 13 mph which is not half bad considering its adequate price tag. Additionally, it features an excellent battery as well, allowing it to reach up to 13 miles on a full charge. And that full charge doesn’t take awfully lot of time.

5. Benchwheel Penny Board 1000W
This 1000W electric skateboard is among the newest ones on the market. It doesn’t have a lot of popularity, but what it does have is great specs and a reasonable price tag of only $400. Specs-wise, this little guy has max speed of roughly 15 mph which sets it above your average electric skateboard in this price range. Unfortunately, the battery is not on par with the motor because it is only able to draw out approximately 7 miles of range per charge. But, there’s an upside to every downside, and that’s exactly the case here. With the all new quick charging technology, Benchwheel’s battery charges up for less than 90 minutes. That has to be a new record on the market. Somebody please check that out for us!
The build quality is nothing spectacular, but it will do the job. One thing that we noticed and that brought a smile or two is the location of the carrying hole. Usually, it is located on one of the longer sides of an electric skateboard. In this case, it is located on the back end of it, making the carrying a little bit of a nuisance since you’ll have to put more strain on your arm muscles. Besides that, it is safe to say that Benchwheel Penny Board seems like a great option at a great price.
And finally, we have come to the best model on our list. It was a fun little ride coming from the very top. I am sure most of you have already found yourself a couple of favorites, but this one, at least in our honest opinions, beats them by a long shot. Why? Well, we will let you know in the next couple of paragraphs so make sure you stick around until the very end!
First, let’s start off by stating that Koowheel has everything a premium electric skateboard must have – great specs, high quality design and exceptional comfort… and it has all of that for just a fraction of the price you would pay for a premium model. As some of you might already know, premium electric skateboards will set you back for at least $1000. It’s quite the investment which is why not so many people opt for them. But, every now and then, we have a jewel like Koowheel that sets the standards high in the medium-high price ranges and spices things up for their competitors.
The simplistic looking deck is made out of high quality Canadian Maple Wood (7 ply of course) topped off with an anti-skid tape for maximum grip while skating. It is long enough for you to feel comfortable while skating for longer periods of time, which is of utter importance if you’re going to use it as your new commuting alternative.
The dual brushless motors are of top quality. They are extremely reliable and will provide you with ultimate stability and safety. In addition to that, they will also allow your electric skateboard to travel at extremely high speeds. We are talking cca 25 miles per hour which is outright AMAZING for this price range. Well, not just for this price range, for all price ranges! Moreover, the battery is on par with the motor being able to deliver somewhere around 20 to 25 miles on a single charge. Koowheel supports weight of up to 130 kilograms which will suit even the heaviest of people (yes, even your fat uncle Bubba who still claims he’s just big-boned). Combine everything above with just 2 hours of charging time and you will begin to understand why we chose Koowheel as the ultimate electric skateboard for adults!
3. Genesis Hellfire
We are starting our list off with Hellfire. It’s a brand new model coming straight from Genesis, a little known company that is rather passionate when it comes to making top quality tech merchandise. They did an exceptional job with their 2 new modes among which is the lesser known Hellfire.
This little fella sports quite the performance but costs decently as well. For approximately $550 you will get a skateboard that goes as fast as 20 miles per hour which is, as I am sure you all realize, no joke. Adding up its incredible range of roughly 20 miles on a single charge and you will notice you are getting a solid amount of raw power for nothing but a modest price tag.
It is very lightweight which makes it ideal for easy transporting from one place to another. This results in it being one of the best currently available commuting models that is very popular among young adults with 9 to 5 jobs. It is able to handle hills with up to 20 degrees incline which makes it perfect for hilly areas on your way to work or college… And best of all, its powerful battery takes roughly 2.5 hours to fully charge which is always a handy features. Without a doubt, Hellfire is going to have a bright future ahead of itself. With plenty of satisfied customers, we don’t see why that number won’t increase in the near future.
MaxFind is another excellent electric skateboard model that is perfectly suitable for adults. With this being said, we mostly mean that it is the perfect solution for short daily tasks that usually require you to get in your car and drive around. With this electric rideable, you can skip through the traffic jams and be on your destination in no time at all.
This is achieved by a great built quality accompanied by excellent specifications for a moderate price of roughly $600. This little fella features speeds up to 17 miles per hour and its battery is able to give you around 10 miles of range. This should be enough for a couple of runs from one destination to another, and will surely save you a lot of time because it allows you to ride through heavy traffic like a proper champ. The battery inside is pretty powerful as you can see from the maximum range it allows… but another great thing about it is its fast charging capabilities. It takes only 2 hours to fully charge it, allowing you to have your mean of transportation up and running before you even know it. After all, it is made by Samsun. If someone knows what they’re doing, it’s them!
1. Yuneec E-GO2
Apart from their excellent drone manufacturing skills, Yuneec seems to be doing jus fine in the electric skateboards niche too. With their newest model called E-GO2, they have stepped up the pace and are looking to increase their popularity on the market.
The first thing we would like to state about the E-GO2 is that it has a kicktail shape. It allows you more control along with better steering capabilities at higher speeds. And while we are at speeds, it is important to mention that this sucker can reach up to 13 mph in the conditions. Moreover, the battery lasts for amazing 18 miles on a single charge. This is the result of their innovative positive braking system that not only makes your skating safer, but ensures the battery lasts longer in the long run.
This model comes in 3 colors: Royal wave, mint and hot pink. These are basically representing standard colors, blue, green and (who would’ve guessed) pink! Among other things, it is also important to state that it supports an app that lets you control specific settings via your smartphone. Unfortunately, the app is only available for iOS devices at the moment, although we are expecting Android release on Google Store in the near future.
Electric skateboards for adults is a brand new niche that has been flourishing lately. Even though children’s models are leading the charge, adult-ready models are exponentially growing and are taking a large share of the market. This is due to the fact that many people use electric skateboards as alternatives to daily commuting methods. They are moderately priced single time investments and offer good dose of versatility and don’t rely on expensive petrol. All things considered, there is no doubt that these models are of exceptional quality. All of them share one same trait – they will provide you with brilliant performance for a great period of time.
