Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro It's very compact and portable
31 inches long, it's the size of a regular skateboard. It's easy to carry or put it in your backpack. It's light enough to carry it effortlessly. The handle on the top makes it even easier.
Pro Good for commuting
That speed is more than enough for urban use and for this skateboard size. You can commute faster than most city bicycles.
Pro Customer support is amazing
You can DM the Elwing team if you have any issues. You will receive spare parts and individual support quickly.
Pro It has two modes for fast and comfortable riding
The modes are distinguished by the top speeds: 10km/h and 27km/h.
Pro Comfortable riding experience
The wheels provide good rebound and make the board very comfortable to ride by absorbing the vibrations and impact from surface imperfections.
Pro Good for tricks
Great for ollies, short turns, and endless manuals.
Pro You can use it as a regular skateboard
Because of the in-wheel motor, you can kick-push it like a regular skateboard, which is convenient for when the battery dies.
If you kick-push twice before starting to use the throttle to accelerate, you can save a lot of energy and extend the range.
It costs much less than high-end boards, yet offers similar top speed and range as the Boosted Single ($999), for example.
Con No lights
The board has no lights though you can use the USB port to install a light.
Con Limited range
If you need a long range electric skateboard, this is not the appropriate choice.
Con Poor stability at high speed
Being a rather short deck, it is not as stable as a longboard when you ride at high speeds. However you can tighten the trucks to improve stability.
