5 most popular electric skateboards for off road use

Even though the main usage of electric skateboards nowadays is for commuting purposes, there are many people who love using them for the good old casual ways. Whether you belong to the first or the second group of people, I am sure you will find some of the below listed electric skateboards rather amazing. As the title of this article suggests, we will take a closer look at some of the best models that are suitable for all terrain uses. With this being said, it should be pretty clear that all of the below listed models have been made specifically for the off road (read all terrain) purposes. In other words, all of them have powerful motors and pretty big (mostly pneumatic rubber) wheels that will have no issues with seamless riding no matter where you ride them on. So, with that in mind, let’s see what do they have to offer!

5. Munkyboards SK-1200BL

This model will cost you just $400 but it features an incredibly powerful 1200W motor that is capable of providing it with extreme top speeds. We are talking almost 30 miles per hour on the perfect terrain and optimal weather conditions (and with a light person riding it, of course). What’s even better is the fact it sports HUGE pneumatic rubber tiers that are more than capable of rolling on all types of terrain. In addition to that, this model comes with a Lithium Ion battery which can last around 70 minutes. That’s equivalent to cca 16 miles which is pretty good for the price range. The only downside of the SK-1200BL is the needlessly long charging time. It will take roughly 4 to 6 hours to fully charge this sucker which might be more than some of you would like.

Still, despite the awfully long charge time, there is no doubt that Munkyboards made a pretty good electric skateboard. What’s best about it is surely its amazingly competitive price tag. For just $400 you can get an all-terrain skateboard capable of reaching up to 30 miles per hour. Now, I’m not even mad, that’s amazing!

 

4. Airwheel M3

The second model featured on our list is the Airwheel M3. It’s a beautiful electric skateboard that will prove to be quite useful for all sorts of scenarios. Whether you’re planning on using it for commuting or you’re a freestyler that likes to go skating on the beach or mountains, the Airwheel M3 has you covered. With its exceptionally big rubber tires this thing will take you through any type of terrain with perfect ease. Combine these rubber tires with built in damper masses and you’ll begin to understand why this is a great all terrain electric skateboard.

Moving onto the specifications, you don’t have to worry too much because Airwheel is not going to disappoint you. And that’s putting it lightly. We are talking about an extremely powerful electric rideable and the specs prove exactly that. It clocks in at around 13 mph which is great considering its a fairly affordable all terrain ready electric skateboard. It features Lithium-Ion battery made by Sony. This tells you that the battery is of amazing quality, and its specs tend to prove just that. It takes roughly 2 hours to charge it up and you will get roughly 13 miles of range (list of long range electric skateboards is here)once it’s filled to the top.

Keep in mind that this device is not waterproof, so you might want to keep it away from water surfaces. In other words, skating on this beauty during heavy rains is probably not that good of an idea. Still, despite that, Airwheel M3 is a great model that can be yours for as little as $433. It’s a very competitive price for an all-terrain model, and I am sure a lot of buyers will recognize that.

 

3. Koowheel

Koowheel is a brand new electric skateboard coming from the company that bears the same exact name. It has some on point features that make it stand out among its competition, and that is bound to get recognition on the market, that’s for sure.

The best thing about this model is the fact that it features easily replaceable batteries. And when we say replaceable, we really do mean that. You can buy an additional battery pack and switch it for as little as 15 seconds. Yup, that’s all it takes! So, you can basically greatly extend the range of this device by simply buying a couple of extra batteries. They are not that bulky (cca 3.5 lbs) so at least 1 should give you more than enough skating time for a day.l

Moving onto the specifications, this little guy features EXTREMELY POWERFUL dual brushless motors in combination with 4300mAh battery. Have you noticed the all caps in the sentence above? Well that’s because this beast clocks in at around 25 miles per hour which is just amazing. Such a speed is rarely seen with models that are priced above $1000 so the Koowheel has some bragging rights undoubtedly. But, in addition to that, the 4300mAh battery is not to be taken for granted either. With around 25 miles of range (yup, that’s also amazing, especially for this price range) it’s more than enough to keep you busy for half of your day. It recharges right back up in less than 2 hours as well, making it extremely efficient. Of course, as we already mentioned above, you can get an additional one and extend your range up to 50 miles without any issues.

Keep in mind that this model will do pretty good on most types of terrain, but try to keep it away from too muddy or wet surfaces as it does not have pneumatic tires so it wouldn’t be such a viable option in those scenarios. The deck is made out of 7 ply Canadian Maple wood and it looks pretty standard. Nothing too fancy about it. It will get the job done without any bells and whistles. And finally, another awesome thing about this model is Koowheel’s 100% money back guarantee policy. In other words, if you purchase this model and you don’t like it for some reason (although I find that to be extremely unlikely considering the performance), you can return it and get all of your money back… As simple as that!

 

2. Maverix USA Border X

Maverix is a well-known company that specializes in producing some pretty awesome electric skateboards for adults over the course of last year or so. With some awesome models, there is no doubt that they are planning on continuing with their success with Border X. That is the name of their newest product and it’s a pretty great one actually. If you want to hear everything there is to know about it, make sure you carefully read through the next couple of paragraphs.

Let’s start off by stating that this little fella has an 800 watts motor capable of reaching 19 miles per hour without too much trouble. Of course, you can adjust the top speed to 3 different levels (low, medium and high) via the controller. This feature is always useful, especially if you’re a first-time skater. Moving onto the battery, you will be happy to know it can last up to 9 miles on a single charge. While that might sound a bit low to you at first, when you take a look at the size of the wheels everything will become clear. These huge pneumatic tires with huge treads are the reason why this bad boy is capable of riding through all sorts of surfaces. They stand out in front of the build and are surely the first thing you’ll notice once you set your sight on this model. No matter what surfaces you are planning to ride this thing on, the combination of smooth ABS braking system and these tires is sure to get you from point A to point B in one piece.

 

1. eGlide AT

Here we go, the best off road electric skateboard. If you are among the people who don’t make compromises when it comes to buying new toys, then this little guy is the right thing for you! It costs a fortune, let’s be clear on that one first… But it does provide you with the BEST electric skateboarding experience currently available.

Its powerful motor lets it go from 0 to 24mph in less than 5 seconds. Moreover, it has around 15 miles range on a single full charge which is more than enough for all of your adrenaline rushers out there. But let’s be realistic here, you are not paying such a huge amount of money on solely the specs. I mean, don’t get me wrong, 24mph and 15 miles range are fine, but they are really not worth the price… But, there’s something else about this model that definitely is worth the price. We are talking about the build quality and sheer skating experience which cannot even be compared with any other model on the market. It’s completely made out of military grade aluminum and has huge Kenda tires that are perfect options for on and off road driving. There’s really not that much left to say about this awesome electric skateboard. It’s one of those things that you just have to try out for yourself in order to truly feel the essence of.

 

Conclusion

After taking a closer look at the top 5 best electric skateboards for all terrain uses, I am pretty sure you guys now have a better picture of what to expect regarding the price / performance situations. To be honest, there aren’t that many great all terrain models. This is due to the already mentioned fact that most people use electric skateboards for commuting purposes. Nowadays, if someone wants a rideable for mountains or similarly rough terrains, they often opt for longboards which have more versatility and are usually way cheaper than all terrain electric skateboard. Still, the industry is rapidly growing so we could expect a bunch of new all-terrain models pretty soon. If that’s the case, we will be sure to update our little list here accordingly. Until then, happy skating!
