There are a lot of different electric skateboards. All with their own perks and features. But which electric skateboard is good for any beginner? And why should you buy a beginner board before playing with the big boys?
In this blogpost I will tell you about the best beginner-boards and what the features are.
Disclaimer: A electric skateboard is a gateway drug, you start with an electric skateboard for beginners and will end up with the premium boards in no-time.
Why are electric skateboards fun?
Electric skateboards are the ideal transportation for the urban commuter. With most boards easily going 20 kilometers (10-12 miles) you can drop off your car at the city border and drive to you destination in a fun and fast pace.
The Yuneec E-GO 2 is by far the best electric skateboard for beginners and intermediates. The board is stable, the trucks are premium and the motor is not only powerful but also really reliable. The motor is a belt motor with an internal cooling fan.
The range is around 20-25KM depending on the riding surface (riding in the city will drain your battery faster, same as not pushing to get up to speed). The speed is around 20/25km/h
The Yuneec E-GO 2 is 299 euro’s and can be shipped to every EU country within 2 days.
The Koowheel D3Mini is a smal form factor board with an internal hubmotor. This makes the motor reliable for small city rides. Although the speed and range aren’t that amazing. The range is just about 5 kilometers and the speed not more then 15km/h.
The Koowheel D3Mini is 199 euro’s and can be shipped to every EU country within 2 days.
