In line with this, skateboarding has picked momentum and gained its deserved popularity in modern times, and because of this, more people around the world have come up with various fun ways to put the sport to good use.

Now, one of these various ways, in which people are now utilising the sport is using their skateboard for commuting, that is, riding their skateboards to work each day or covering distances of as long as ten miles in each direction with their skateboards. Altogether, commuting with your skateboard is an amazing idea and a great convenience for any rider, especially when you factor in the various advantages it gives you.

For example, you get to cover long distances within record time and with less stress than if you were walking, and you also get a more eco-friendly means of mobility than utilising a car. With advantages like these and the plethora of others it has, it is little wonder that it’s become a big hit in the skateboarding community.

Now, with the rise of commuting with a skateboard came the necessity of a commuter skateboard, and truly, owning one is a huge convenience. However, you need to own a good one, or rather the best you can get. This is because a skateboard used for commuting goes through a lot and as a skateboarder, you know your equipment must match and be able to withstand your riding style.

Therefore, if you’re to get a commuter skateboard, it must be able to manoeuvre corners and other turns, withstand the weather, be durable and a whole lot more. Basically, you need the best skateboard for commuting, one that can you properly swift-ride to work on.

These amazing cruiser boards for commuting will be highlighted in no particular order below, so let’s get to it.

Cal 7 Mini Complete Cruiser Skateboard

If you need a skateboard that easily fits into your carry on or backpack, or one that’s generally easy to carry around, but it’s still a great commuter skateboard, this is it.

Cal 7 22" Complete Mini Cruiser Plastic Skateboard
  • DECK SIZE — 22.5 X 6" plastic deck easily fits into a carry-on or backpack.
  • TRUCKS — 3.125" aluminium alloy trucks
  • BEARINGS — ABEC-7 bearings

The Cal 7 mini cruiser is a great skateboard for commuting, that even comes from the factory fully assembled, hence, ready to use on arrival. However, the ready to use bit isn’t what makes it a great commuter board, what does though are the features and qualities it has.

For one, still on the fact that it comes completely assembled, the hardware utilised for it by the factory, are all of the superb quality which provides an increase in both the functionality and the durability of this board. Also, this skateboard features a durable and sturdy deck, in the form of a classic waffle top deck, which apart from being super study also offers a firm grip.

Also, in line with the need for stability, the Cal 7 mini cruiser skateboard sports 60mm 78A wheels which absorb shock on rough roads. Also, there are the ABEC 7 bearings and aluminium alloy trucks of about 3.2 inches. Also, a fun aspect of this skateboard is the different colours and designs it comes in, so you have a variety to pick from.

Flybar Skate Cruiser Boards

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that cruiser boards can double as an amazing commuter board, you’re still basically cruising around town, but with a lot more distance to cover. Now, the Flybar skate cruiser board is a really amazing skateboard for cruising and also for commuting.

The skateboard sports awesome and high-quality features that make it a prime option as a top tier commuter skateboard, one of which is its 7 ply Canadian maple wood make, which results in an incredibly lightweight yet durable deck. In line with this, the deck takes a concave shape, coupled with a kicktail to give it that manoeuvrability ensuring it’s ideal for cruising around town.

Also, the Flybar board’s deck isn’t the only top feature, it also has an 80s black printed grip tape which ensures you always have a stable and firm grip, as well as a steady ride. Also, for the purpose of a steady ride, as well as avoiding wheel bites and offering a more responsive ride.

This skateboard gives a higher ride height by utilising 6mm riser pads that fit perfectly with its 60mm SHR 78A polyurethane wheels.

In addition, the Flybar board also has ABEC 9 chrome bearings, 4-inch aluminium trucks, polyurethane cast medium bushings, which all serve to provide a fast and stable ride, as well as a smooth and superior turning experience.


Magneto Mini Cruiser Skateboard

A third cruiser skateboard on the list certainly shows that a high percentage of cruiser boards are definitely compatible with commuting. And for this particular board, the compatibility with commuting is quite outstanding, as it offers riders everything required to enjoy covering and carving through your route every day.

Magneto Mini Cruiser Skateboard Cruiser | Short Board | Canadian Maple Deck...
  • Designed to be fun to ride and portable to carry around, this is our go-to board for anyone who skates...
  • Length = 27.5" Width = 7.5" Wheelbase = 18.5"
  • Canadian maple deck with high quality components

With a deck made from 6-ply Canadian maple wood, this skateboard is incredibly durable and strong, that it’s no wonder it can withstand a rider’s weight of up too 280 pounds conveniently. To this, there’s also the addition of a sand grit finish on the top of the deck, to ensure your feet stay firmly on the maple deck.

Apart from that, you should note that the Magneto mini cruiser is a board designed for superior sturdiness, stability and durability, as it sports gravity cast aluminium trucks, as well as high-quality SHR polyurethane bushings and wheels.

Also, with a width size of 7.5 inches and a length of 27.5 inches, the Magneto mini cruiser board is designed to be super portable, easy to carry or store throughout the day. In all, with its high-quality features and no substantial setback whatsoever, this board is one of the best you can get.

Krown Freestyle Elite Drop Through Complete Longboard

Next on the list is another Mini cruiser skateboard, but the Krown is rather different from the great above, as it is made with drop-through mounts. For the majority of riders who may not be aware, drop-through mounts on skateboard functions to make the board sit lower, thereby giving the skater a lower centre of gravity, which makes the board easier to push off.

Krown Rasta Freestyle Elite Complete Longboard, 9.25x36-Inch
  • Canadian Maple Construction
  • 9.25-Inch x 36-Inch Freestyle Shape
  • White 71mm 78a Wheels

Apart from that feature, there are also a ton of others that ensure you get the best out of this skateboard as a cruiser or commuter board. One of which is the 9 plies Canadian maple that makes up this skateboard’s deck and helps to make it, in all a durable and sturdy skateboard.

The deck is also coupled with 80 grit black grip tape to ensure a proper and firm grip when riding. Also, there’s the trucks and the wheels, and for this skateboard, the Krown brand utilises heavy-duty aluminium 7.0 reverse kingpin trucks and 71mm 78A high-rebound urethane wheels, which offer increased speed and stability.

For that same goal, this skateboard also sports ABEC 7 precision bearings. Now, another important fact of this skateboard is that it comes ready to use straight out of the box, that is, fully assembled from the factory, with high tensile Philips head mounting hardware.

Boosted Mini X Electric Skateboard

The final skateboard on the list is an electric one, the Boosted Mini X, which is a premium break from the norm.

Boosted Mini X Skateboard
  • Exhilarating top speeds of 20 mph gets you there faster
  • Climb the steepest hills of your commute without breaking a sweat
  • 3 ride modes specifically tuned to the Boosted Mini

This electric skateboard is near perfect for commuting, as it has enough power to climb the steepest hill on your commute route, it’s brakes are super responsive and it can reach incredible speeds of up too 20mph. And as for durability, as well as grip, the deck is made of a deep dish composite which is stable, durable and keeps your feet locked in while you’re riding.

Also, a fun aspect of the electric skateboard is it has a lengthened battery span of up to 14 miles, as well as being compatible with Android and iOS devices. Now, while this electric skateboard is great and will certainly make an amazing commuter board, it does have a disadvantage, which is its weight.

The Boosted mini x electric skateboard is quite a bother to carry around, as it is really heavy, well depending on the rider’s strength, I suppose. However, while it seems portable with a width size of 11 inches and length of 29.5, it weighs on its own 16 8 pounds which is quite a load to be carrying around each day.

It will still make a great board for commuting, especially when you consider features like its regeneration brakes and its 3 ride modes.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, the skateboards mentioned above are perfect choices for commuting and can be well said to be the best. But if neither of them fits your fancy, you can always hit the store and simply use them as a guide to get what you feel bests suits you. Also, you should note that the best commuter skateboard is the one that makes commuting easiest for you.


Jackbobo Electric Skateboard Review

Jackbobo review : Electric Skateboard Review

Since the advent of the electric skateboard, every manufacturer has battled over time to develop the best sort. Ranging from laser tagged wheels, advanced wireless controllers, longer noses and tails, laser-guided precision, bigger wheels to increase speed output, lighter weights to allow easier mobility etc.

You can almost find any variety of electric boards that will best serve your skillset, whether you want to ride for fun, you want to practice, or you’re even an expert.

  • GREAT RANGE AND SPEED -- It has two modes and speeds for beginners or advanced skaters. It also comes...
  • 250W BRUSHLESS HUB-MOTOR -- Compared with the belt drive motor, the brushless hub-motor is more reliable...

The Jackbobo E-Board is one of the most affordable skateboards you could find in the markets. It comes at a price so cheap it’s basically a giveaway for a skateboard with the specifications it has.

With an average weight of 5kg, you wouldn’t notice the weight difference if you walked around with it. The small weight makes it easier to move around without any hiccup.


This special piece comes in two different sizes, the smaller 27.5″ 250watts lithium battery-powered board or the slightly bigger 35.4″ board that comes in three different colours; black, orange or red. The electric board comes with a range of 10km(about 6.2 miles) when fully charged which is reasonable for a low-cost buy. This simple powerful piece of tech can accelerate at a speed of 6.2mph and reach a top speed of 12.4mph.

A great feature of this electric board is the fact that it can function as both an electric board with juice, or as a normal skateboard without its juice, making it easier to use no matter where you decide to take it to. The deck design gives it a cool touch, with its 7- layer ply maple wood decking, increasing its elasticity and toughness.

The board is sturdy as it can hold a weight of up to 220lbs(almost 100kg). It is fully equipped with two brake modes and two-speed modes specially adapted for beginners or even advanced skaters. So whatever skill level you are on, you sure can use his board as easily as you’d use any other. The Jackbobo electric skateboard is fitted with the reverse capability and that I can say is not easily found in the market and frankly, is a feature I find really attractive.

Its durable wheels absorb shock and provide a smooth ride. Take total control of your path and sync up the electronic skateboard with its wireless remote control made with functions to accelerate, decelerate, or engage the cruise control feature giving the rider the freedom to maintain any speed level without necessarily touching the throttle. Now, that’s bang!

Ready for this electric skateboard? Let’s have a look at its features

Jackbobo Electric Skateboard: Core Features

So far, I haven’t known any person who has found problems with the Jackbobo E-Board and for the few times I used it, I had so much love for it except it wasn’t more of my speed. But seeing the features yourself will probably help you make your decision. So here goes.

Quick Look At The Features

  • Max range of 10km
  • Top speed: 20km/h
  • 2-speed modes and 2 brake modes
  • 2200mAh Lithium battery
  • Battery charge time: 2 hours
  • Wireless remote control
  • Weight: 5kg
  • Length: 27.5”(smaller size) and 35.4”(bigger size)
  • Power: 250W
  • Wheel diameter: 2.9”


I’ve seen a lot of boards that their prices hit the roof, but the Jackbobo is among those that probably won’t put a dent in your pocket. It is highly affordable so it’s actually a board almost anyone can get at a budget. The Jackbobo E-Board is pocket friendly which means you can conveniently add it to your skateboard stash.


The Jackbobo E-Board was crafted to look exquisite and to withstand a lot of weight(220lbs precisely) and pressure. Its deck is made of 7-ply Maple wood with Hadley design. That’s not all; the board is really elastic and tough too. With its concave and kicktail, the rider is guaranteed an added control on the board which allows him to have more traction while riding.

Another feature that is great is how small the board is. It is small and lightweight which is a bonus. For a commuter, there are overcrowded places where your board cannot be ridden so the ideal thing to do is carry it. This task is a lot easier with lighter boards and the Jackbobo offers just that.

Max Range And Speed

I can’t say the Jackbobo E-Board has the best range or speed I’ve ever seen. It goes as fast as 20km/h and it’s maximum range is 10km which is not so great but is okay to work with.

What Comes In The Box?

  • 1 x Electric skateboard
  • 1 x  power adapter
  • 1 x wireless remote controller
  • 1 x USB charging cable
  • 1 x charging cable
  • 1 x user’s manual

What We Like And What We Don’t


  • The board is sturdy, comes with a safety feeling
  • The size of the board makes it easy to manoeuvre with little or no effort
  • Durable wheels absorb shock easily and provide a seamless ride
  • The board is lightweight which makes it easy to carry around
  • The new reverse capability of the board makes it stand out from most E-Boards
  • The price of the board is pocket friendly (it’s cheap)



  • The 10km range of the board and the 20km/h top speed is not high enough, especially for speed junkies


Jackbobo Electric Review Summary

Overall, the Jackbobo Electric skateboard is what I would call average. It is really sturdy so you don’t have to worry about it coming apart under you(maybe except you are over 100kg).

It is definitely not the best E-Board money can buy, but for the price, it is sold at, the best cannot really be expected.

Although, I am especially surprised at how much the Jackbobo can do because I have seen and ridden terrible boards that sold for more. And I am especially impressed by its reverse capability because even some of the best boards do not have that.

Granted, it is not in the big shots league but on average, I think it is very cool for a starter board and I would give it a thumbs up. So, if you check the specs and you are cool with what the board can offer you, you sure can give it a try.


Penny Board 27-Inch Cruiser Review

Penny Board 27-Inch Cruiser Review

I first rode a penny board 27-inch cruiser when I visited Australia a couple of years ago, and although I’ve been interested in the very art of skateboarding for the greater part of two decades, I truly enjoyed riding the penny board.

It had a simple design, yet it was so smooth and comfortable. It was perfect for downhill riding and glides through surfaces smoothly. The wheels are soft, with a standard bearing, and could do a few tricks, especially carving. The colours are really appealing and the boards are super flexible.

I only wished the board came with a grip tape that would have made landing tricks (like the Ollie) possible. But notwithstanding, is the penny board worth being a skateboarder’s choice?

  • Aluminum Powder Coated Trucks
  • 59mm 83A PU Wheels

The Penny 27-inch cruiser complete skateboard: What’s the deal?

The Penny board, or Penny Australia as it was first known, was first made in Australia. They come majorly in two sizes: 22 inches and 27 inches boards but there’s also a longer board of the penny family, the 36 inches penny board commonly called the penny longboard.

These penny boards come in countless styles and colours that give them distinguishing identities. With wheel diameter measuring 59mm, this penny board 27″ cruiser is adapted for smooth riding.

Complementing the 59mm wheels is an ABEC 7 bearing which gives the board a seamless feel when riding.

The decking on the board is made with either plastic or maple material, so it is extra flexible. With a 27″ length, it is easy to carry around without having to bump into people in transit. The board comes in a weight that is approximately 2kg and this makes it really lightweight.

The board comes fully assembled inside its box, so you don’t have to worry about putting it together by yourself. All you have to do is buy and get ready to ride straight away. How does that sound?

The Penny board 27″ is relatively stable because of its length, and riding it is similar to riding a longboard. It is ideal for late teenagers, affords more control and can be on the road for a long distance without hiccups.


Key Features

Features at a glance

  • Manufacturer: Penny
  • 27 inches Length
  • Weight: 2.49 kilograms
  • 59mm wheel diameter
  • Wheel hardness: 83a
  • Product dimension : 2 x 7.5 x 2.1 inches.
  • Width: 7.50 inches
  • Product name: Penny 27″ cruiser complete skateboard


Are The Parts Good?


The Penny board 27″ cruiser decks are made from maple or plastic materials, designed to give the structure of the deck a combination of strength and flexibility.

What makes this board stand-out is its size. With its 27 inch length, it is bigger than the 12 inch Penny board and also wider. At 7.5 inches in width, it cannot be compared to the smaller board of 6-inch width. This causes the Penny 27 inch cruiser to have a wider platform, making it more stable.


ABEC 7 premium bearings, fitted with big tensile bolts. These help to hold the wheels in place and gives in a non-frictional feel when being ridden. Although while this is great, you have to know that bearings degrade really fast and will have to be upgraded when they do.

  • 59mm 83A PU Wheels


Penny trucks are made entirely from cast aluminium. The purpose of the trucks is to connect the board’s wheels and bearings to the deck. The trucks are composed of two parts; baseplate, which is screwed to the top part of the deck, and the hanger, which the axle runs through.

The trucks are about 4inches wide which makes them capable of sharp carves. Also, because of its trucks, the board is a lot more stable when it is going in a straight line.


Penny board wheels are made from polyurethane materials, with a plastic core. The wheels on the 27- inch Penny boards have a diameter of 59mm (2.323 inches), making it fit for a string of riding skills. It is also well adapted for downhilling.

Wheel hardness (durometer)

The hardness of penny wheels, known as the durometer rating is an important element of the penny boards design. Measuring on a scale of 65A to 100A, all penny wheels are rated at 83A, making it convenient to cruise.

What’s More To Know?


The board is not the cheapest of course. But I really think it is affordable considering how good it is. An adult can almost easily afford it and teenagers can easily save up for it. It’ll also make a great gift for a loved one who knows their boards.


The board is extremely lightweight. Weighing in at 2.49kg, it can be easily carried around without much hassle. If you have a large enough backpack, it could fit into it which is very convenient when you are mobile.

One of the most popular reasons that people have when they choose penny boards is that they are not heavy. They are small and they are very light.

What We Like And What We Don’t


  • Definition of convenience for every user
  • Because they are small, they are easy to carry around (portable)
  • Easy to navigate in crowded places
  • The board is very durable



  • Not suitable for performing tricks
  • It is easy to lose stability at high speed especially when you’re not on a straight line

Final Thoughts on the Penny Board 27-Inch Cruiser

Penny boards are one of the best boards, for beginners and experts alike because you can easily take it around and cruise even in places with a large number of people. And because of their size, it is quite easy to avoid obstacles.

This particular penny board is made for cruising, and though it is bigger than the 22 inches board, it might still be too small for some really big individuals. In that case, a longboard is much recommended.

If you are looking for a board that is built specifically for commuting, then you might want to pick out the penny board.

However, if you want to take on more skating challenges, like throw in a few tricks as well as commute, then the longboard is perfect for you. But if that is not your thing, you should totally get the penny board.

Boosted: Stealth Electric Skateboard Review, 6 Reasons Why You Should Choose It

A lot of manufacturers claim to be the best at designing and producing E-Boards, but only a few actually deliver. The Boosted Stealth electric skateboard is one of the few that has turned the tide of the game with its range of top of the line electric skateboards.

The Stealth Electric Skateboard is Boosted company’s most expensive and fastest model yet. The Stealth Electric board comes with similar design and components as other boards previously designed by Boosted. The difference is its new and improved range of 14 miles, as well as its run speed of 24 mph which is impressive when compared with other electric skateboards.

So do you think this e-skateboard deserves all the props it gets? Let’s find out.

Overview of the Boosted Stealth Electric Skateboard

The Stealth Electric board is almost everything a skateboarder could imagine a skateboard to be. It is a step-up from Boosted’s previous designs with added features that promise users a great experience.

Boosted’s previous models have always been favourable to new riders in terms of accessibility and ease and that did not change with the Stealth. The craftsmanship of the board is absolutely fantastic and the speed, range, and acceleration are top of the line.

The Stealth is undeniably among the best that Boosted has produced so far, with how fast and powerful it is. The Stealth is so much power packed that I’d suggest you get a sound helmet before you decide to ride it.

The Package

In the past, Boosted has used trucks, wheels, and decks that were manufactured by other respected skateboard companies but that changed not long ago as Boosted now produces these parts by themselves. This switch thankfully did not reduce the quality of these parts(my opinion).

With its lightweight poplar score, the board is still springy and very much comfortable. And an added advantage is the board’s wide spacing of the trucks helps the rider take full advantage of the springy deck’s shock-absorbing nature.

Stealth Electric Board Review

The Boosted Stealth E-board is probably one of the most amazing skateboards I have come across, what with all it’s awesome features.

The fact is, it is hard to experience the Stealth and not fall in love. Of course, I am not saying it’s 100% perfect, but it comes close.

Here’s a list of features you should expect the Stealth to come packed with.

The Features

  • Regenerative breaks
  • 14-mile range
  • Top speed: up to 24 mph
  • 25% hill gradient
  • Bluetooth enabled remote control
  • Ride modes: 5 ride modes, which includes the new hyper mode
  • 2,100 watts of power
  • Super flexible composite deck
  • Dimensions of 11.3 widths, 38.0 lengths, and 5.7 height
  • Boosted Stratus 85mm wheels
  • Weight: 17Ibs

Boosted Stealth


The Boosted Stealth skateboard is built to take you up to 14 miles range on a single charge. So you can easily charge up your battery, which generally takes about 1 hour 45 minutes and go wherever you need to go without worrying so much about your battery dying on you.

Speed And Regenerative Brakes

Not only does the Stealth have lightning-fast speed, but you get to be the master of how fast you go. With this E-Board, you can clock a speed up to 24 mph effortlessly.

You can explore up to 5 different ride modes starting from the beginner mode to Hyper mode (which is crazy awesome). With this, you have a choice to decide at what speed you want to ride at and when. This makes the board both beginner and expert friendly. And if you’re a Daredevil, it’ll work for you too.

The Stealth electric skateboard also comes with regenerative electric braking which greatly compliments its 5-speed modes. For a board, these powerful, powerful brakes are needed and Boosted came through with their electric brakes.

And the fact that it is regenerative means you can always put back a little charge into your battery every time you pump the brakes.


At 17 pounds (18kg), the Stealth skateboard is an average weight for electric skateboards. Although if you carry it for long enough, the weight can begin to tell on you. But that’s totally understandable because a board that features and offers as much as the Stealth does, is bound to weigh slightly more than normal.

This doesn’t have to be a problem for you though, as long as you plan ahead and actually use the skateboard instead of carrying it.


The Stealth comes at a pretty expensive price. So, for all it can be described or classified as, cheap is not among them. But if you crave the very best features you can get in the market, you’re surely not going to find them for cheaps. Boosted’s Stealth guarantees you get what you pay for and more.


Equipped with 2,100 watts of power, the Stealth electric skateboard can basically get you through most terrains. You can tackle any hill due to how much power the board packs, climbing them easily and descending confidently without breaking a sweat.


The Boosted Stratus 85mm Wheels provides the rider optimal acceleration and enough shock absorption which makes bumps feel and look insignificant. Built with metal pulley, the wheels are more efficient, quiet and long-lasting.

For me, the Stealth Electric Board is one of the many wonders of electric skateboards. A lot of its features appeals to me and provides a great riding experience.

My thought on this? If you can afford the Boosted Stealth Electric skateboard, then go for it. You’ll find you made a pretty good decision.

Slick Revolution Review: Urban 80 Electric Skateboard.

Urban 80 Electric Skateboard.

Skateboarding has evolved so much over the years and I don’t just mean the skateboarding techniques. Skateboards have gone from wooden boards to incredibly put together remote-controlled boards for an easy commute.

I can’t say I’m not happy about this development because not only has it made skateboarding superfly, it has also made moving around super easy.

There are companies out there that have taken skateboarding design and creation to a new level and who has produced top-notch skateboards.

The focus of this article review, however, is the Slick Revolution’s Urban 80 Electric Skateboard.

  • ✅ CHOOSE YOUR WHEEL SETUP - 83mm Slick Wheels, 110mm Rough Stuff Wheels and the 120mm Foam Core...

The Urban 80 Electric Skateboard- Overview

Urban 80 was designed for the typical commuter in an urban environment. With its 80cm length, it is really easy to carry around in crowded places, convenient enough to take on a bus or train without hassles.

Unlike the original Flex-E-board, the Urban 80 comes in a smaller package fully packed with more range and power. This makes it a much more portable alternative.

Urban 80 is pretty pricey so it might not be the first choice for someone who doesn’t have a lot of money to spend. The board is a load of technological goodness that has features that will appeal to both skateboard enthusiasts and noobs alike. It comes with an advanced controller fully equipped with 3 different speed modes, an LCD screen and 3 braking strengths which makes the board easily and comfortably controlled by the rider.

If you have to move through smooth roads, going from your home to the office or to school, or you have to shred really tough and hard ground, the Urban 80 has got you covered. It is designed so spectacularly that you get to choose your wheel size depending on how much wheel strength you would need. There’s the 83mm Slick wheels, the 110mm Rough Stuff Wheels, and finally, the 120mm Foam Core Foamies.

The board comes with really strong brakes which does a lot in most emergency situations where you need to make a sudden stop. If you’re new with E-skates, you might find the brakes as too strong or too forceful. But that’s okay because there is a way to rectify that feeling. You mostly just need to get used to strong breaks and know how to regulate your weight when you are about to hit the brakes. Surely it is better to have strong breaks than tired ones.

The Urban 80 Review: Key Features.

We’ve singled out some kickass features of the Urban 80 E-skates, now let’s check out some of the things that makes this board cool.

Features At A Glance

  • 2400 watts of power.
  • 3-speed modes.
  • 3 braking modes.
  • Wheel choice: 88mm Slick wheels, 110mm rough stuff wheels, and 120mm foamies.
  • Top speed: 22mph | 35km/h(83mm Slick Wheels). 25mph | 40km/h(110mm Rough Stuff Wheels).
  • Range miles and kilometres: 15miles and 24 kilometres.
  • Advanced wireless controller.
  • Regenerative brakes.
  • USB output.
  • Weight: 6.5kg/ 14.3 pounds.
  • Climbing gradient: 20%/ 11.3°




The Urban 80 is designed to go a good 24 kilometres or 15 miles on average. Depending on the wheel size, the board can do a speed of 22mph and 35km/h, and 22mph and 40km/h. The top speed that can be reached by the 83mm Slick wheels is 22mph | 35km/h while that of the 110mm Rough Stuff Wheels does 25mph | 40km/h.
