I tried the Inboard M1 Electric Skateboard

Until we get the real "hover board" that really hovers above the ground, we steel the thunder wherever we go. Period. A nude woman running on the street and the EUC rider on the other side. Guess who gets more stares?

Anyway what was the price for that slim looking skate board?

Anyway, the skateboard does 25mph (apparently). It was very good fun. A little tricky at first...........two main donwsides are the price and the fact you control forwards/backwards using a little handheld joystick.

The third main downside is the tiny little wheels.  I don't see how anyone could go 25mph on one unless the road was glass smooth.:cry2:  And was lined with pillows.

Bit of a shame as it ruined the 'purity' of just using your body.

Isn't that how all quality e-skateboards work? :) I mean how is that an objective downside :)

I know there's gotway's new development with full body control, but you'll never get the same level of response and sustainable speed as remote operated ones.

I guess yeah, id never seen one in the flesh before. Was very impressed with the design though. Wouldnt guess in a million years it was electric if stationary.

Plus what happens when the connection gets lost?!

There are some people on the r/electricskateboarding subreddit that can tell you what happens, at least with some boards: they slam on the brakes and send you flying off the board, horizontally... at least for a fraction of a second.

A buddy of mine rides a Lacroix and a few other high end electric skateboards and he had an issue with his throttle, it was just like the motor of an electric scooter cutting out, might jerk for a split second since no more power is going to it and he'd coast to a stop

Yeah, it was one specific brand where the board slammed on the brakes by itself. Meepo, IIRC.

It is best to learn the fundamentals of standard skateboarding before embarking on an electric skateboard adventure. Being familiar with and understanding the device’s key components and functionalities is a good start.

I had the Revel Kit, which is a fantastic direct-drive power pack that allows you to use whatever wheels and board you want. Highly recommend. Some people really want that skateboard feel; my friend uses his like a ski lift: rides up steep hills, then bombs down, and has decent brakes to boot. For me I used it to cover ground, and the vibrations and constantly hunting for pebbles got old. I upgrade to belt-drive, which gave me more torque, and then I bolted on 6 and 7" pneumatic tires. That board is soooo carvy with the double kingpin trucks. It really is so amazing to ride, and I swear I can go up driveway lips easier than my wheels. I loved that thing to death... and then I discovered EUCs! I don't touch the board much, but it is a seriously fun machine that has a unique feel.
