Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Good range
One of the best ranges of all the boards, delivering a range of 25KM on a single 2 hour charge.
Pro Good customer service
The company offers very good service, with an engineer available to aid in solving any problems that crop up.
Pro Good build quality
The Magneto features a 1,200 W brushless motor, lithium battery, Canadian maple deck, and gravity cast aluminum trucks.
The Magneto can reach top speeds of up to 20 mph, which is comparable to most top-range electric boards on the market today.
Pro Can handle large weights
The Magneto has a payload of 107 kg (235 lb), which is quite a lot of weight for an electric board. Of course the higher the weight the lower the performance, but this is true of any electric board.
The Magneto is one of the only electric longboards on the market under $600, though shipping will add to the cost. This is especially true if it is to be shipped out of the EU, as there will be customs charges tacked on.
The Magneto Only weighs 6 kg (13 lb), which makes it easy to carry around when not riding.
The board is reportedly tough, and can take a wipeout without a problem.

The company is located in London so you know that if you visit them or give them a call you’ll be connected with a native English speaker.

Con Not currently available
The item is sold out on their own store (Oct. 2016), with no information on if there will be more made.
Con Crappy customer service, wouldn't replace my broken board nor sell me replacement parts
Con Slow braking
To prevent you from being thrown off the board, the brakes will not stop the board suddenly. This can put you in dangerous a position if you ever need to stop on a dime – for example if a car comes out of nowhere.
Con Weak motor
Motor is pretty weak. Can't go up hills. Can't stop you on descent.
Con Flimsy controller
The controller seems a little brittle and may not survive a big wipeout.
