Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Very long range
This board has a 24-mile range, beating the vast majority of electric skateboards in this regard that usually don't go farther than 14 miles.
Pro It offers a unique riding experience
The Zboard Pearl is controlled by two pressure pads instead of a handheld remote. Pressing on the front pad increases forward speed; pressing on the back brakes or sends you in reverse. Having controls different from the majority of alternatives makes this board more fun but also more challenging to ride, even for those who have experience with electric skateboards.
Pro Front and back lights enable riding at night
There is a headlight and taillight for riding in the dark. These lights allow the rider to be seen and to see where the board is going.
Pro Low battery warning lights
In order to keep users from being surprised by a dead battery, the ZBoard 2 now comes with LED indicators that keep you apprised of the remaining battery life.
Pro You can use it as a regular skateboard
When the battery is completely drained, the brushless motor allows ZBoard to be pushed like a regular skateboard.
Con Steep learning curve
ZBoard has a unique design. While it is similar to other skateboards in many ways, riding ZBoard doesn't come naturally, even for experienced skaters. Controlling the board's speed and direction using the pressure pads can be difficult to accomplish while remaining balanced, so lots of practice is necessary before riding this in a crowded environment.
