Jackbobo 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.

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.

Size

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!

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”

Price

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.

Aesthetics

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 We Like And What We Don’t

Pros

  • 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)

 

Cons

  • 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.
