Razor Ripstik Electric Caster Board

Another Razor product which is probably the best electric skateboard you can get if it’s your first time and you just want to see how these things look. The reason I am saying this is because the Ripstik is “the” cheap electric skateboard to go to.
It features a strong 100 watt motor which allows the speed to go up to 10mph. The Ripstik is limited though when it comes to weight support because it will only support a rider up to 143 pounds. This makes the Ripstik perfect for children, however it is not the best option for adults who weigh considerably more.razor ripstick electric skateboard
Another positive thing for this model is that it is maintenance free. It doesn’t have an alignment, chain and chain tensioner which are essentially the electric skateboard parts that tend to malfunction most of the time.

Features

  • 100 watt motor
  • up to 10 mph
  • remote control

Pros

  • charge for up to 1 hour
  • fast
  • ideal for kids

Cons

  • rider weight limit 143lbs

SWAGTRON SwagBoard NG-1 Electric Skateboard

The Swagtron is a bit different to the Cruiser in several ways. First of all it’s an electric longboard, meaning it’s a bit longer than the regular electric skateboards. This skateboard has a UL2272 certified 24V LPF battery which features additional security for the battery.swagtron electric skateboard
It goes up to 11mph and you can ride it for up to 10 miles before you need to charge it again. When it comes to electric longboard skateboards the SWAGTRON is really a bargain because it’s much cheaper than other boards with similar specifications.
