Con Extremely expensive
With a base price of $4,500, it's a real investment. While very few other boards are built for quite the same riding style as the BajaBoard, other top-of-the-line boards come in at less than half the cost.
Con Quite heavy
The board weighs 55 pounds.
Con Not Waterproof
It can be affected by water damage.
Con Poor maneuverability
It's difficult to maneuver and turn on the Bajaboard, sharp turns feel uncomfortable and unbalanced. The latest version (G4) of the Bajaboard has improved maneuverability though.
Con No mobile app
There is no mobile applications for iOS nor Android, which is a massive loss given its price.
Con Bad usability and connectivity of remote
The remote feels hard and uncomfortable, it's not easy to modulate and it's not reliable - it loses connection with the board quite often, potentially causing serious injuries. The latest G4 model however features a new hand controller which is much easier to use and has improved functionality.
Con Long range
The range will vary from 10 to 21 miles depending on the battery pack selected.
Con No consumer storefront
There is no way to easily purchase this item. The only payment methods available are Letter of Credit, Telegraphic Transfer, and Alibaba Trade Assurance. This seems more geared towards bulk orders for retail stores than consumer facing solutions for single products. There is no purchasing info on their website, which seems that they will need to be contacted through email in order to set up any kind of transaction.
