A Thorough Look at Boosted Electric Skateboards

A Thorough Look at Boosted : The Tesla Of Electric Skateboard

Boosted is quite a renowned name in the world of electric skateboards. You can have an idea of how popular it really is by considering the fact that even the regular non-electric skateboarders are well aware of it. This recognized brand is famous for its high-quality skateboards with exceptional performance and is hence, commonly known as Apple, Tesla, or Amazon of electric skateboards.

Currently, Boosted deals in 4 electric skateboards, which are the Mini S, the Mini X, the Boosted Plus, and the Boosted Stealth. In this article, we will explore all these skateboards and look at their various aspects such as price, speed, range, hill climb rate, weight, size, deck, and other capabilities to see what this renowned brand has to offer.

Boosted Mini S/X – Small Boosted Electric Skateboards

I will start with the Boosted Mini S, which is the lightest, smallest, and most recent electric skateboard from Boosted. Besides its size, its price is also an important thing which makes it everyone’s favorite! If you are not much into the longboards then, this one is a perfect choice for you. Moreover, since most of the skateboards from Boosted are over $1000, this one is sure to save you some money!

Price

The Boosted Mini S costs more or less $749 and are quite cheaper than other Boosted boards such as the Boosted Plus which retails for about $1,399.

A Thorough Look at Boosted Mini S/X - Boosted Electric Skateboards

It all started when a huge number of people complained about the Boosted boards being too expensive and out of their budget. The company then decided to make a board that, despite being 18 inches shorter and a half in price, would incorporate most of the features of a longboard. And this how, the Mini S came into being. Even though $749 is still not that cheap, it opened up the market for Boosted.

If you feel like you want some more speed and range, then, other than buying any of the Boosted’s other expensive skateboards, there is an option of up-gradation. You can upgrade the Mini S to the Mini X, which offers both a faster speed and a longer range at a price of about $999.

Speed

The top speed of 18 mph, that the Mini S offers, is just fine. But it could be better considering that there are many cheaper skateboards on the market that are capable of offering more speed than that.

With the up-gradation to the Mini X, the top speed enhances to 20 mph. Although there is an increase of only 2 mph, it still makes a big difference.

Still, both these skateboards are relatively fast as many people (including myself) consider a top speed of 18 mph to be sufficiently high. In my opinion, a speed of over 20 mph starts getting dangerous and uncomfortable.

Range

The standard range of 7 miles, offered by the Mini S, is again not that much impressive as there are other skateboards on the market that can easily provide a range of more than 10 miles.

Now here is the point where the Mini X stands out as its range is double than that of the Mini S, that is, 14 miles!

The Mini X would be more suitable for commuting to work and covering a distance of 6 miles or more because a 7 miles range might not be sufficient for many people who regularly use the skateboard.

Hill Climb

With a solid hill climb rate of about 20%, both of these boards remain quite stable in terms of acceleration and speed while riding on the hills lest the slope is very steep.

You should be aware that hill-climbing will result in increased power output of the skateboard, and you will much faster run out of the battery. As Mini X has a better battery, again, it would be more suitable in this case.

Weight

With the Mini S weighing 15 pounds and the Mini X weighing 17 pounds, there is not much difference in their weights. The larger battery of the Mini X has resulted in more weight of this skateboard but still, it is not too heavy unless you walk over a greater distance while carrying it.

Size and Deck

The weight and the battery are the only things that make these two boards different from each other. All the other specs and features of both of them are the same.

Both of them have a deep dish composite deck with length and width of 29.5 inches and 11 inches respectively. The deck is stiff and is composed of triaxial fiberglass. As it lacks flex, you will have to buy a longboard if you want some.

Other Specs and Features

  • Offers three ride modes
  • Regenerative Braking System
  • Wireless Bluetooth Remote
  • Charge Time: 1 h 15 minutes (Mini S); 1 h 45 minutes (Mini X)
  • IOS and Android App Support

  • 80 mm Boosted Lunar Wheels

The last one is the Boosted Stealth, which is the best electric skateboard from Boosted as yet and is known to be “the pinnacle of performance” by Boosted itself due to its exceptional performance. The Boosted Plus is an impressive board, but the Stealth is even more than that! It will definitely blow your mind with its amazing specs and features. It costs a bit more but I think it’s really worth it! So let’s begin with it!

Price

This board retails for $1,599. This is quite a huge sum of money, but once you buy this one, you won’t feel any need to buy any other skateboard. You will definitely be satisfied with a ton of amazing specs and features offered by it, and I think to enjoy a quality performance, paying some more money won’t hurt.

Speed

It can take you with a raging top speed of about 24 mph. With a very sensitive throttle, it can achieve very fast acceleration.
But the most important thing here is the remote control that comes with five different ride modes, allowing you to enjoy riding at different speed levels. For pros, there is a new speed mode, Hyper, which is only present in the Boosted Stealth. With this one, your board will fly at a raging speed of 24 mph! The speed lovers would definitely love it!

Range

Now comes the range of the Boosted Stealth. This electric skateboard also features an extended range battery, which provides enough power to the board to achieve a mileage of about 14 miles, which is still pretty good. The range is the same as that of the Boosted Plus.

Hill Climb

The Boosted Stealth has a hill climb rate of about 25%. It is driven by a powerful motor of 2,100 W, which allows the board to climb an incline without losing its momentum.

Weight

Although it is a longboard and has an extended range battery, it still weighs just 17 pounds. It is not too heavy, but you might find it to be a bit bulky to carry. Moreover, we have a detailed guide about the maximum weight limits of the electric skateboards of various brands so you can check out which skateboard has the max weight-bearing capacity in the market.

The deck is 38 inches in length and 11 inches in width and is composed of triaxial fiberglass fortified with polymer sidewalls. With all being said, it can be seen that both the size and deck of this skateboard are exactly the same as that of the Boosted Plus.

Support

One of the things that I love about Boosted is that they have their own app for both the IOS and android users.

This app provides software updates for every board and notifies the user whenever an update is released so that he can update the software. These software updates enhance the board’s capabilities including the top speed, battery life, and board registration.

The app also keeps a record of the board and rides for you to check. With a built-in speedometer, it can track the speed at which you are riding or the distance you have covered. It also informs you about the remaining battery and the range.

Your phone can update you when your board gets fully charged. Furthermore, there is an online community of Boosted where you can share and discover new areas and spots to ride your skateboard.

With so many facilities and capabilities, the Boosted electric skateboards are sure to provide you some unforgettable and adventurous riding experiences. So let the fun begin!

Where Does Boosted Rank?

Now, let’s see where does Boosted Electric Skateboards rank. The answer is quite simple. In my opinion, this brand ranks at the top with some amazing skateboards and outstanding service. I don’t see it to be overthrown by any other company anytime soon. A brand known as Inboard seems to have some potential to compete with it with their M1, but it is their only skateboard on the market.

Evolve Skateboards is another famous brand with some incredible skateboards, but unfortunately, their boards are very expensive.

Then comes the Chinese companies which do offer some amazing skateboards at quite lower prices, but their service and support can’t be compared with that offered by Boosted!

In the end, I would say that Boosted occupies the top position among all the electric skateboard companies. Let’s just wait and see what they will offer in the future. Cheers and happy gliding!
