The Best Electric Skateboards Of 2023

The brands featured on this list compensate me if you purchase their products. This does not influence my opinion of a product or determine the position in this list. My goal is to provide you with the best information to find your perfect electric skateboard.

Here’s a refreshing look at the best electric skateboards that are actually worth spending your hard-earned money on.

It’s completely up-to-date and only contains eboards from reputable eskate companies…

Putting together a “best electric skateboards” list is extremely difficult, as every rider has different needs and a unique riding style.

So what this list aims to do is give a broad overview of the best electric skateboards that would meet the majority of eskaters’ needs.

I’ve kept this list of eboards to products that are under $2,000. I’ve done this is because electric skateboards that are over this price point are more or less going to be great products, however, I don’t think you need to spend that much to get an electric skateboard that has everything you need.

The Hurricane is Meepo’s top-of-the-line electric skateboard and it competes with many of the “premium” eboard manufacturers.

I’d even go as far to say that the Meepo Hurricane is a premium electric skateboard.

You’ll be able to ride anywhere you want without the the fear of the battery going flat thanks to the huge battery and range capabilities.

And the top speed will have you tearing up at the eyes.

In terms of hardware, they’ve used top quality parts so you’ll spend less time trying to fix things and more time riding. This saves you money in the long run and keeps you safe when riding.

I put the Meepo Hurricane at the top of this list because it acts as a symbol of the entire company, however, they have many other great eboards that suit riders of all styles.

So, if the Hurricane doesn’t quite tick all of the boxes for you, then be sure to check them out here.

Pros
  • Full carbon deck with enclosed electronics for extra protection from water and dust
  • Reputable brand

I’ve put the WowGo Pioneer X4 and its sibling, the Pioneer 4 at the top of this list because I think they are the best electric skateboards that will cater for the most riders.

They’re great for beginners to electric skateboarding but advanced eSkaters will also have a great time on these eBoards too.

For starters, they’re extremely comfortable to ride. The soft wheels, shock-absorbing griptape and the flexy deck all work together to ensure you have a smooth ride and prevent any leg fatigue, so you can go out for long rides and not get too tired.

The speed modes are spread out well so that the lower modes encourage beginner riders and help them to learn at a manageable level, while the higher end modes offer amazing acceleration and speeds that will make any eSkater’s eyes water.

The only major difference between the Pioneer 4 and the X4 is the motor types.

The Pioneer 4 has hub motors and the X4 has belt-drive motors.

You will get a little bit more acceleration and hill climbing power out of the X4, however, the 4 rides much quieter and requires less maintenance.

I highly recommend both of the eBoards.

Pros
  • Great value-for-money
  • High performance specs
  • Comfortable with Cloudwheels
  • Great carving ability
  • Many wheel options for X4
Cons
  • Not great for heavier riders
  • Battery: 12S2P 345Wh 8.0Ah Samsung 21700 40T

The Shaboardz Summit V3 is a great electric skateboard that offers a blend of quality, performance, and versatility that is very hard to find in the eSkate industry.

They designed the Summit V3 with the rider in mind, ensuring that the ride is comfortable but also packs some high power.

Whether you’re cruising on smooth pavement or tackling off-road trails, the Summit V3 can handle it with ease.

If you like to tinker with your eBoard, the Summit V3 has an abundance of wheel kit options you can buy off the shelf and fit to your board to get the performance and ride style suited to you.

I need to make a special mention of their customer service. It is second to none. You can email them, conact them on socials or even pick up the phone and call them. They’ll respond quickly and get to the bottom of your issue with a smile on their face.

You can even take your non-shaboardz eBoard into their warehouse and they’ll help you fit other wheel kits to it.

They just love all electric skateboarding.

Pros
  • High performance specs
  • Low maintenance and puncture-proof tyres
  • Great carving ability

The Evolve Hadean Bamboo Street electric skateboard is a top-tier product that offers a blend of speed, power, and range, making it the best electric skateboard overall. 

The deck, made from 3-ply bamboo and 2-ply fibreglass, provides a perfect balance of flexibility and durability. It has a traditional-styled bamboo deck modernised by feet-locking dropdowns and a ‘W’ concave, so you always feel confident on the board.

It has front and rear LED lights incorporated in the battery case and offer user-customisable control via the remote and the new Evolve app, including Smart Brake Lights.

The board’s 97mm custom-formula urethane wheels, made in the USA, offer a smooth ride that absorb a lot of the vibrations from the road.

It’s powered by dual 3000W 6368 custom brushless sensored motors, which provide a top speed of 31mph / 50kph.

The range is very impressive, at 40 miles / 65km on a single charge, thanks to a 43.2V, 16AH, 691.2Wh custom-built battery. You’ll be able to to ride wherever you need to go without any range-anxiety.

It comes with the new Evolve Phaze remote with a CNC aluminium-reinforced body and is one of the best remotes available on any electric skateboard.

The Hadean series is also available as an All Terrain option, which changes the top speed to 26mph, the range to 25 miles, and includes Evolve’s 175mm pneumatic tyres, so you can take this bad boy off road and rip up some trails.

Lastly, the Hadean series has a primo Carbon option in both Street and All Terrain variants. It doesn’t change any of the performance specs but as the name suggests, it has a fully integrated carbon deck which looks stunning.

Pros
  • Amazing customer support
  • High performance specs
  • Very comfortable to ride
  • Great carving ability
  • Customizable wheel options
Cons
  • Pricey, but worth it
  • Battery: 12S4P 16AH 691.2Wh 21700 Cells on custom flexible PCB using custom BMS

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.

I have put the Meepo Voyager at the top of this list because it represents the entire company. But they have many other great eboards to suit riders of all styles from all-terrain to shortboards.

Pros

The Exway Atlas Pro is one of the best electric skateboards you can buy right now.

It is at the forefront of innovation and is constantly changing the eSkate industry.

The Atlas Pro has so many different combinations and extra features that I can’t possibly mention them all here.

You can customise the eBoard to be exactly the type of board that’s right for you. The numbers above show the lowest possible price, but the highest possible specs. So, depending on what you go for, it’ll be a bit different.

Not only does it have crazy performance specs (even at the low end), it has a mobile app where you can customise all of the eBoards settings including the acceleration and braking power.

So you can make the board unique to you on the inside and the outside.

It really is an amazing electric skateboard.

Pros
  • Incredibly customisable
  • High performance

Being WowGo’s most powerful electric skateboard in their lineup, the WowGo AT2 Plus isn’t for everyone.

But if it’s off road riding you want to do, then this is the eBoard for you.

The deck shape guides your feet into place and locks them in so you can focus on the trail ahead rather than needing to look down constantly to make sure your feet haven’t slipped.

The huge wheels, the flexy deck and the shock-absorbing grip tape all work together to provide you with a seriously comfortable ride, so you can ride all day without fatiguing.

You also have the option to get the 2-in-1 combo which includes a set of 120mm Cloudwheels, which turns it into more of a city-commuter type eboard with a little more acceleration power and extended range.

If you’re looking specifically for All Terrain eBoards, then check out our list of the Best Off Road Electric Skateboards.

Pros

The Maxfind FF-Belt is a fantastic electric skateboard that floats between being a commuter eboard, a carving machine and a long-range weekender to take adventures on.

The range is extendable by buying extra battery packs. The top of the deck has a quick swap battery system so you can switch out the batteries really easily.

The factory-stock Cloudwheels are great for riding on less-than-perfect paved roads and for a little compact gravel riding.

If you want to do a little more off-road riding, then the Maxfind FF Plus AT is your answer. It’s a hub motor e-skateboard equipped with a set of integrated all-terrain motors and is absolutely wicked.

The carbon fibre deck is compliant, meaning, it responds precisely to your feet movements. This means you’ll always feel in control of the board.

This paired with the Double kingpin trucks gives it that amazing carving feeling like you’re out on the snow or catching a wave.

One small feature that is easily overlooked is the integrated handle. It is at the nose of the board so you can pick up one end and roll it along next to you.

If you’re not a fan of the belts, check out its little sister, the FF-Street which is pretty much the same eboard but it has hub motors and street wheels.

Pros
  • Easy swappable battery for extended riding
  • Shock-absorbing wheels are comfortable and versatile
  • Battery size options available
  • Wheels are swappable
Cons
  • Belts will need minimal maintenance
  • Battery: 10S3P 8.7Ah 376Wh 48V

The only mini electric skateboard to make it onto this list is the WowGo Mini 2.

Built with top-quality components, the performance specs are more than enough on a deck of this size.

The high price-to-performance ratio makes this short and portable electric skateboard a staple in most eSkaters lineups.

Perfect for ducking down to the shops, or riding to the bus/train station where you can easily carry the eboard when you need to.

Exway is one of the best eSkate companies in the industry and they have an electric skateboard to suit everyone’s needs!

The Exway Flex Pro is arguably one of the best commuter electric skateboards available today. It has a flexy concave deck with raised shoulders to sit your feet on to give you exceptional control. Additionally, the foam grip tape on top of the deck absorbs a lot of vibrations from the road to make your ride even more comfortable.

Exway also has a mobile app where you can control all of the power curves for acceleration and braking, along with a whole host of other configuration settings. So you can set it up to be just the way you like it.

It’s really hard to fault the Flex Pro for what it is. It’s not is the fastest electric skateboard, nor does it have the longest range but it does have features that no other eBoard has.

Pros
  • Great value-for-money
  • Very comfortable ride
  • Customizable to suit your riding style

The Possway Lynx is their first attempt at a belt-drive electric skateboard and they didn’t disappoint.

It is really powerful in the top modes and still nice and comfortable in the lower modes which is great for riders of all skill levels.

It feels fantastic to ride because. the slight deck flex combined with the larger, softer wheels absorbs a lot of the vibrations from the road.

I had a great time carving on this electric skateboard and would recommend to anyone wanting to ride this on their daily commute.

Lastly, it comes with a set of rear ShredLights which is added value that is rarely seen by other brands at this price point.

Pros

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 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 remote has a little screen that shows important information like current speed, trip length, board battery, remote battery, riding mode and braking mode.

Backfire Boards have an eboard to suit the riding style of anyone at a price that doesn’t make your eyes water.

The Backfire Zealot S is their high-performance electric skateboard and has all of the top features.

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.

It has some cool ambient lighting on the side of the battery enclosure underneath the deck which doesn’t really help you see, but it does make you more visible in the dark which is always a welcomed safety feature.

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.

The Possway T3 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.

It runs on hub motors that don’t require much maintenance at all. This is ideal for beginners who don’t want to mess around with the likes of belts and all that technical stuff.

You simply jump on this eboard and ride.

It’s super comfortable thanks to the shock-absorbing grip tape on top of the deck. You might think that 3mm of foam wouldn’t do that much, but you’ll be surprised at how well it protects you from those pesky vibrations. You’ll be able to ride for a lot longer before your feet start to fatigue.

Now, I mentioned in the ‘Cons’ table above that it doesn’t have the acceleration power that some of the other motorized electric skateboards on this list have.

If you’re an experienced eskater, this just isn’t the eboard for you. 

For the beginner and intermediate riders, the acceleration on the Possway T3 is more than enough. It’s got enough oompf to get that butterfly feeling in your tummy but it’s not so hard that it’s uncontrollable.

The Possway T3 is a great first electric skateboard.

The Verreal RS Pro has received praise across the board from many people in the eskate scene.

It has incredibly smooth acceleration and braking thanks to the custom-programmed Hobbywing ESC. You feel every bit of thrill from the take-off without feeling any jerkiness along the way. And it’s the same when braking. You can rest assured that you’ll come to a complete stop safely.

The deck is really stiff due to being made of 7 layers of maple and 2 layers of bamboo. There’s a minimal amount of flex between the nose/tail and the main body of the deck where there is a slight drop-down.

In my opinion, this is exactly where you want the flex. The deck’s stiffness makes it easy to maintain balance and turn corners, but the little amount of flex at the trucks helps to absorb a lot of bumps from the road making the ride really comfortable.

You have a choice of four different wheels; 90mm street, 97mm street, 105mm Cloudwheels and 120mm Cloudwheels. They’re all really grippy against the road and the large surface area of the wheels against the ground feels stable at all speeds.

The Verreal RS Pro uses belt motors which gives it great acceleration and top speed ability. They require a little more maintenance than other motor types, but in my opinion, it’s totally worth it.

The belts also give you the freedom to swap the wheels out easily, so you can change your ride style whenever you like.

Overall, the Verreal RS Pro is the best electric skateboard for someone looking to get a really sturdy and comfortable eboard that has a lot of power and doesn’t break the bank. It’s the best option before jumping up into the premium electric skateboard category.

Final Thoughts

That’s my list of the best electric skateboards that you can buy at the moment.

The only thing left do is to go buy yourself an electric skateboard.

Turn your boring commute into an exhilarating adventure!

I’ll constantly update this guide as newer and better eboards are released.

What Is An Electric Skateboard?

Electric skateboarding is relatively new and has only really gathered mainstream popularity in the last couple of years.

This article will be quite confusing to you if you don’t know what they are so let me quickly break it down for you and answer the question, what is an electric skateboard?

I have a great interactive guide that explains all of the components of an electric skateboard which is super helpful as a reference and getting a basic understanding of the parts that make up an electric skateboard.

But basically, an electric skateboard is a battery and motor powered skateboard that you control with a handheld remote.

They’re amazing because you can effortlessly ride up hills and travel much further than you would on a traditional skateboard.

People use them to ride to work, to the train station, on weekends with friends, to take their dog for a walk, to the beach with their surfboard underarm, to swing by the store to pick a few things up, to grab coffee, off road in the forest, along dirt mountain trails, and pretty much anywhere you want.

The benefits of eskating go far beyond just having fun. They are environmentally friendly, help to reduce traffic congestion, improve mental health and even help you save some money in the long run.

Eskating is more than just a hobby or a sport, it’s a movement.

Jump on an eboard and join us for the most fun you’ll ever have on a plank of wood with four wheels.

Check down below for the details of each of the top electric skateboards I mentioned in the table above.

Things To Consider When Buying An Electric Skateboard?

If you’re here looking to buy your first electric skateboard, I know exactly what you’re going through. That feeling of being completely confused about the different types of motors, board length, wheels, batteries, ESCs and other specs.

That feeling I had and what you’re feeling right now is the exact reason why I built this website in the first place. To try and make this process as easy as possible.

To be honest, you could buy any one of the electric skateboards on this list and be extremely happy. You’ll get the adrenaline rush you’ve been looking for and you won’t want to ever stop riding.

But after riding for a while, you might realise that there is a certain style of eskating that you prefer over the other. At that point, you’ll feel like you made the wrong purchase. 

Don’t worry, electric skateboards sell really fast on websites like eBay, Craigslist and Facebook marketplace so you’ll be able to upgrade pretty easily.

But, my aim is to help you make the best decision from the very beginning so that you can enjoy your eboard for many years.

The first thing you want to think about is what kind of roads you will be riding on. If you’ll only ever be on smooth, sealed roads and paths then street PU (polyurethane) wheels are what you’re after. They’re the slick wheels that you see on the Meepo V3.

If the roads where you live are less than perfect then you might want to consider getting something with AT wheels or hybrids. Something like the Raldey Mt-V3. These will help absorb more bumps and cracks in the road and you can even ride on gravel trails.

Lastly, if you’re into heavy trail riding, consider getting an eboard with full AT wheels, like on the Evolve GTR boards. These can go almost anywhere. Street, gravel, dirt, grass, you name it, it can probably handle it. The only place that it will likely struggle is on the sand.

The type of motors that an electric skateboard uses is important to consider. The two main types and the only ones seen on this list are hub motors and belt-drives.

Hub motors are great because they don’t require any maintenance, however you do lose a little bit of performance and you don’t have any options for wheels other than what they come with.

Belt-drives, on the other hand, require a bit of maintenance because belts can sometimes break depending on how hard you ride. debris can also get stuck between them so you’ll want to give them a good clean every now and then.

On the plus side of belts, they offer more performance with higher low-end power meaning you’ll get faster acceleration and better hill-climbing ability.

You’ll also be able to swap out the wheels whenever you feel like it. This is great for going from street wheels to all-terrain wheels when you feel like taking it to the trails. Keep in mind that you’ll need to do some research on gearing so that’s you get the best performance from each type of wheels.

The deck is a very important component of an electric skateboard because it’s going to dictate your ride comfort.

A stiff deck is going to be easier to turn and stays more stable when riding at high speeds. However, you’re going to feel more vibrations from the road.

A flexible deck, on the other hand, is going to absorb a lot more vibrations giving you a very comfortable ride. But you’re going to lose stability at high speeds. Some of the best beginner decks are flexy decks because it makes the ride so smooth and is easy to learn on.

Maple and carbon fiber decks tend to be the stiffest, while bamboo will be the most flexible. You might find some composites that contain a bit of maple and a bit of bamboo. This is to get a nice middle-ground of flexibility and stability.

Last but not least, let’s talk about specs. The two main ones people care about are top speed and range. Manufacturers will always state this on their websites. 

A good top speed for a beginner would be anything up to 25mph/40kmh. Beyond that, you’re playing with fire and ideally want to be a more confident rider.

As for range, that really depends on where you want to ride and if you’ll get a chance to recharge before your next ride. Think about places you might ride, like work, school, the shops, cafes or friends houses. Maybe you just need to be able to get to the closest train or bus station.

So, that’s a pretty basic overview of what you need to think about when buying your first electric skateboard. I hope it’s been a little helpful. If you have any other questions, be sure to email me or message me on Facebook, down in the bottom right corner of this page.
