We reviewed and compared the top 10 best electric skateboards on the market in 2022 and compiled them in this article.
In order to show the cost-effectiveness of the skateboard more intuitively, we calculated the ratio of the price to the range, you can clearly see the cost per mile, of course, this is not the only factor that determines how good a skateboard is.
1. Possway T2
The Possway T2 is a great beginner-to-intermediate electric skateboard for commuting and cruising around town.
For starters, it’s very affordable.
You can try out electric skateboarding to see if it’s for you without spending too much money. Plus, Possway has a great reputation, so if you happen not to like it, it’s easy to sell on the secondhand market. It’ll get snapped up.
But, I can almost guarantee that you’ll love eSkating after getting on the Possway T2.
The Possway T2 is equipped with two 500W hub motors that yield a specified top speed of 29mph/ 47 kph. The speed can be gradually unlocked through four different speed modes on the remote control and it is set to be able to handle up to 30-degree inclines when at peak power.
All in all, the Possway T2 is a very good budget electric skateboard. It’s definitely amongst the top contenders as far as value goes and it balances different use cases quite well throughout its build. It has plenty of range and speed for the majority of skaters. With several speed and braking modes, it serves as a solid option for both beginners and well-versed riders. I especially like the concave deck and the fairly large 280Wh battery capacity and it doesn’t feel too heavy to carry around either.
2. Meepo Voyager X
The crew from Meepo Board have spent many years developing and refining their products and the result is a relatively affordable yet still very powerful electric skateboard.
As soon as you step onto the Meepo Voyager for the first time and take it for a spin, you’ll instantly be hooked.
The slight flex in the deck is comforting and absorbs a lot of the vibrations from the road.
You have total control with the new Meepo ESC 3.0 which brings smooth and powerful curves to your acceleration and braking.
3. Possway T3
The Possway T3 electric skateboard sets itself apart by being one of the fastest electric skateboards with hub motors. In the past, hub motors have received a bad reputation for having low power, however, the T3 is proof that that’s no longer the case.
The dual 500W motors gave me 1,000W of quick boost, offering fast speeds of over 30 mph, though I usually like to ride closer to 25 mph for my own comfort. But even at higher speeds, the board feels nice and stable.
The T3 is rated IP65 for water resistance. This means the board can handle more water than its predecessor, but I would still not recommend getting the board too wet.
The deck is made up of 8 layers of Canadian Maple and 1 layers of bamboo. It’s a W-shaped, concave deck with slightly raised outer edges along each side. The deck has a little bit of flex too which helps for tucking into when you’re riding at higher speeds. Overall it’s not very flexible though – a little bit stiffer than the T2 deck – but it matches well with the bigger 105mm cloudwheel-like wheels.
The Possway T3 is a great beginner-to-intermediate electric skateboard for commuting to work/school and cruising around on weekends so long as you don’t have too many hills to climb.
4. Backfire Zealot S
The Backfire Zealot S is both the most popular and also the most logical choice when it comes to buying a mid-tier electric skateboard. The board has beefy specs that keep itself competitive if not ahead of other similar priced boards, on top of that, the Zealots S is better built and better polished than most of its competitors.
It has a tried-and-true deck with solid durability, a nice little flex and slightly raised edges for a comfortable stance while giving you exceptional control over the board.
The stock wheels are amazingly squishy and grippy, but thanks to the belt-drive motors, you can chuck on almost any sort of wheel that you like to suit your riding needs, including Cloudwheels.
Overall, the Backfire Zealot is just a really well-made electric skateboard that has great performance.
It’s a board for the guy/gal that just wants to get out and ride. Ideal for commuting to work or school and a great activity for the weekend to get outside and enjoy some fresh air and explore your home town.
5. Meepo V4S (18 miles）
Meepo’s latest edition to the collection of famous longboards. With newer technology, cool and trendy eboard grip tapes, as well as the new push-off to start technology, the new Meepo V4S rides as cool as it looks. With similar specs to the previous V4 Shuffle, this particular model now boasts a popular 105mm donut wheel edition, and despite a lower overall wattage output compared to the V4 Shuffle, it generates as much torque and range at 10 miles.
The new Meepo Shuffle S is the perfect beginners’ longboard, or intermediary rider, looking to ride for fun, or on short commutes. Traditional style as a longboard the Meepo Shuffle S has a combination of Canadian ply and fiberglass to ensure carving capability without being too difficult to control. Weighing a mere 16 lbs, this electric skateboard is a favorite also amongst students needing to carry their board in and out of class, and saving time zooming around campus.
6. WowGo 2S max
If you are looking for a board that’s comfortable and intuitive to ride, Wowgo 2s Max is the one for you. When it comes to specs, Wowgo 2s Max is either top tier (power, top speed) or on par with its competitors (battery/range).
On my test ride, the top speed I hit was 23.2mph (37.4kmh) and there was some more room in the throttle, I could even feel the board still accelerating before I backed off. I just don’t have the balls to push it much further.
In saying that, I definitely think this board has the capability to hit 28mph (45kmh).
However, what place Wowgo 2s Max at the top is the details. Wowgo 2s Max is amongst if not THE most polished board under $500. From the foam grip-tape to graphic underneath the board; to better-looking remotes, nothing from the looks will give away the affordable price tag.
7. Teamgee H20T
The deck is one of my favourites on any electric skateboard I’ve ridden so far. It has a W-shaped concave that makes you feel locked into the board and gives you extra control when leaning to turn.
The unique wheels have never been seen on any other electric skateboard before providing both traction and vibration absorption.
They are really comfortable on paved roads while enabling you to go on gravel and grass trails if need be.
The remote has a little screen that shows important information like current speed, trip length, board battery, remote battery, riding mode and braking mode.
Overall, the TeamGee H20T is a solid option for intermediate to advanced riders who want to get a mix of street and all-terrain rides. The range is not the best for models at the same price range, but still enough to get long rides in.
For the price, performance and the great deck, the H20T is an amazing budget option. The only downside is the screwed-in battery (if you’re dead set on needing an extra).
8. Maxfind FF-Belt
The Maxfind FF-Belt is really designed for intermediate to advanced eskaters. If you’ve ridden electric skateboards before or you’re confident at other board sports, you’ll love the performance from this eboard.
Maxfind FF-Belt is a comfortable ride, thanks to the deck it uses. The composite deck is very comfy, wide, long, and has a good concave. The double-dropped deck allowed lower riding height and added to the stability of the ride.
When it comes to value, paying $899 for a 12s3p belt-driven board with a beautiful composite deck and swappable battery feature is not a bad value proposition by any means.
9. Exway Flex & Flex Riot
If you’re looking for a board under $1000 USD, at $650 to $700 the Exway Flex is the board you should buy without question.
The highlight of the Exway Flex is the flexible deck with an aggressive concave that’s very comfortable underneath your feet, a smooth, powerful, and customizable speed control thanks to using the best version of customized Hobbywing ESC, and Exway’s proprietary yet very very good Trist truck and wheels.
The board is IP68 rated meaning you can ride through puddles or light rain without ruining your board’s electronics – though I still wouldn’t recommend it. The electronics might be fine, but skating in wet conditions can be very dangerous.
All in all, I think the Exway Flex is an awesome board. It has great upgrades, a comfortable deck, strong braking, great throttle response and is a steal at $650 to $700.
10. Tyneeboard Mini Belt 5AH
Tyneeboard Mini Belt is the best affordable belt shortboard, and that by itself had made it a popular board. For shortboard riders who like belt-driven, perhaps for the smoother ride feel allowed by having 4 real wheels instead of 2 stiff hub motors, perhaps for the strong acceleration from a stop, perhaps for the louder sound it makes, and importantly don’t mind the reduced range suffered from going belt, then Tyneeboard Mini Belt hit those points.
It reminds me a lot of the Boosted Mini in the way it feels and rides but it comes at a fraction of the price.
It’s a really fun eboard to ride, like most mini eboards, however, the Tynee Board differs because its stability is so great. I often feel the need to ride cautiously on a lot of mini electric skateboards, but that’s just not the case on this one.
