Bioboards Plutonium

Description

Bioboards is a relatively new company that started in Sweden. It was founded in 2018 by the best DIY electric skateboard manufacturers who want the best. They couldn't find what they wanted, so they decided to start by building the best electric skateboard (from their point of view).
One of the boards offered by the Bioboard is the Plutonium. It has a range of up to 80km (about 50 miles), so it's worth a look.The skateboard can reach a top speed of 65 km/h (40 MPH). The powerful twin motors are sealed to withstand rainy weather, improving commuter and explorer circuit board functionality.
Keep in mind that bioreboards are only shipped to the US, EU, Canada and Australia.Users outside these areas will miss the premium panel. But there is still hope. Many of the electronic boards in our list are sold worldwide and offer impressive range and top speed.

  • Lacroix Jaws

    Description

    Basically, the Jaws is the successor of their still extremely popular Prototipo model, which is no longer on sale in the meantime. And it actually shares most of its components, which isn’t a bad thing though. However, they innovated the deck, the batteries and the enclosure which now is their own flexy carbon fiber one.
    The two other arrows in their quiver, the Nazare and the Nazare Lonestar are basically identical and also quite similar to the Jaws. They distinguish from the Jaws only by the following features: They have the new and even wider Lacroix signature ‘Hypertrucks’, they come with extra front lights and they have even bigger motors, batteries and more range. The latter by the way is the only difference between the Nazare and the Lonestar. Well … stealthiness is typically not the strength of a high performance board like this. However, that’s not what I bought it for. The Jaws roars in a subtle way and it actually attracts a lot of attention. It’s an eye catcher and it’s clearly visible that this is anything else but an ordinary skateboard. I live in the EU, and eScooters are legal in my country. Having said that, eSkates and other PEVs are unfortunately still seen as toys and are not allowed to ride on roads or bike lanes, at least not yet.
    Probably needless to say, this incredible machine is definitely not a toy.

  • Yecoo GTS

    Description

    The next electric skateboard I want to introduce you to is Yecoo GTS. Yecoo is the last two years just developed for electric skateboard company, you may not have heard of it. But the GTS I'm recommending today is really worth it. It's one of the best in skateboarding. It is really the next best option out there, let alone its price at only $619.
    GTS uses a seal bottom case design, the controller box and the battery box are packed together, what's more, two cool light tubes equipped on the battery box will change their direction and speed as the skateboard rides. 2000 watts motor provides strong power and high speed. And motor external, do not directly contact the ground, no wear of course. Comes with high torque, 1:3 deceleration ratio, supporting strong power.
    GTS can get a range for 16miles with Samsung(9.0Ah) battery. It's also fast with a top speed of about 25 mph, which is that I ever want to go on an electric skateboard, but more importantly, it has really good breaking.
    This remote control can be used to drive in both directions, and it is very sensitive to start. You should be careful when braking, because it brakes suddenly. By the way, the skateboard starts automatically after a few seconds when you roll it’s power wheels without turning the board on. If you forget to turn it off, don't worry, it will turn off automatically.

  • Apsuboard AP Stealth

    Description

    The board is sleek and pretty looking, the orange wheels color wise aren't my favorite because they look dirty quickly but the big 110 holed wheels allow you to roll over things effortlessly, I went for the biggest battery possible and its range they boast about isnt too far from the truth depending on the right conditions, the motors have loads of torque on most hills and a good amount of zip to it. I have noticed that on longer rides the motors tend to get a little hot(granted its 102°f outside, summer.) but as long as you take a 3 to 4 break every fifteen or twenty minutes you should be good. The remote seems a little lack luster for the price of the board but it still works well without lag or cut outs . All in all if you can afford this board I would definitely recommend this board.
    ESC uses a customized Hobbywing ESC with sensor. This models has a better smooth acceleration and braking but with a faster start speed & a more powerful climbing ability. The high discharge current of 40A will keep you and your Board always strong and powerful.
    Apsuboard have been strictly waterproofed before they leave the factory, but once you start using or maintaining it or replacing the battery, the board's water resistance will be reduced. Riding on wet or icy roads is dangerous potentially causing a loss of traction or control, Water can damage the board and water damage is not covered by the warranty. Therefore, you should avoid placing the board in the water.

  • Exway X1 Pro

    Description

    In short, the Exway X1 Pro is for everyday commuters, hardcore skidders and beginners or your kids.
    I know that it makes no sense for an electric skateboard to be a hardcore skateboard and a carved board, while being suitable for children. As a rider, you can set it up according to your riding style. As a parent of a rider, especially a young rider who may be learning Eskate for the first time, you can limit the speed, acceleration and braking strength of the board.
    There is peace of mind when you know that your loved one is out there gliding at a safe and comfortable speed.
    Although Exway is an electric skateboard manufacturer from China, they stand out among many companies, not only from China, but also one of the most innovative companies in the whole ESkate industry.
    To date, Exway Boards have had a very successful track record with their first release, and Exway X1 was well received in the Eskate community as a solid competitor to the infamous range of enhanced boards. Now, Exway have released their latest and greatest electric skateboard into the wild.

  • What determine the limit of speed?

    The max speed of an electric skateboard is determined by a number of factors. For example, the weight of the rider, the power of the motor, the power output of the battery, ESC, transmission and wheel size. And of course, most importantly, the weight of the rider and the power of the engine. A high-speed electronic skateboard requires special attention to details and quality in production. At high speeds, many components of the electronic skateboard may get high temperatures and violent vibrations in use. Having a higher speed electric skateboard requires having a better truck to avoid the speed swing. Obviously, they also need reliable brakes! As we would expect, all of these factors will lead to a corresponding increase in prices, so if you want to buy a faster electric skateboard, you may have to budget well.

    The following is the analysis of the factors affecting the skateboard speed.

    • Rider’sweight: There is no doubt that the bigger and the heavier a rider is, the slower an e-board will be. This means that large and heavy riders weights will not get your  top speed presented in the tables.
    • Motor power: In order for our electric skateboard to have a higher speed, it must have a powerful motor.The power of the motor determines the acceleration of the electric skateboard, thus increasing the speed of the skateboard. If you want a fast electric skateboard, then you need to take a powerful motor.
    • Battery power output: If the battery does not have the same enough power output, even a powerful motor is useless. The motor can only provide and transmit the same amount of power as the battery. So you need an electric skateboard with good enough batteries.
    • ESC (Electric speed controller): ESC is an electronic component and mechanism that regulates the drive and speed of motors. Better ESC provides higher power, so a fast electronic board often needs a good ESC that has the ability to optimize the top speed of your electric skateboard. 
    • Wheel size: Smaller wheels have lower top speeds, but faster acceleration and more torque. Conversely, bigger wheels mean your board has a higher top speed, but leads to slower acceleration and less torque. Off-road or all-terrain wheels will add a lot of riding comfort and ease the discomfort brought by vibration, but there is also a drop in top speed and a significantly lower range because of friction and drag.

    Pay attention! Keep safe!

    High speed can be tempting, but it can also be dangerous. Be sure to wear a helmet when riding a motorized skateboard. Don’t excessive acceleration, ride within your skill level.
