Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good for carving
The board has a wide truck system and a flexible wooden deck which makes it great for carving.
Pro One of the best options for experienced riders
This is easily one of the top performing boards in terms of power and speed on the market right now. Naturally, it takes some skill and experience to ride. It has a huge max range - 31 miles, while the vast majority of alternatives don't go farther than 14. It can go as fast as 26 MPH, which for most people is too fast to be comfortable. It beats most competitors at climbing hills as well with 25% hill grade, compared to the usual 20%.
Pro It's great for long-distance rides
On just one charge you can go anywhere from 18 to 30 miles, depending on the terrain, your weight, and other factors. A typical electric skateboard can only go around 10 miles before requiring charging. The wooden-bamboo deck makes long rides more comfortable by absorbing impact from various bumps on the road that can cause strain in your legs.
Pro You can ride it both on the city streets and off-road
The GTX Bamboo 2in1 has two sets of wheels - one for riding in the city and a larger set that can get you through rough terrain. If you don't want to pay for both, you can alternatively get either the Street or All-Terrain versions of the board.
Con It's very expensive
Even among premium options, this board is one of the most expensive ones. Before committing such a large sum, one should carefully consider if he truly needs such a powerful board, or would a cheaper but still a very well-performing option, such as Boosted or Inboard, do the trick.
Con The weight capacity is quite limited
This board can carry weight up to 220 lbs, while many high-end boards have a max load of 250+ lbs.
Con It takes an experienced rider to use it
The GTX 2in1 is not the best option if you're only starting to explore electric skateboards. It's not only very expensive but also powerful and fast, which means riding it can be dangerous if you're not experienced enough.
Con Its NOT waterproof
All though with street wheels its a hard to ride it wet conditions anyways, the ATs are fine.
