Backfire Gen II Galaxy



The Generation II board from Backfire which they are dubbing the Galaxy is one hell of an electric longboard. It boasts a max speed of 25mph with a range of up to 15 miles! That puts it in the top end of the electric longboard market. With Dual hub motors motors, the Galaxy can climb hills with an incline grade of 25%. You’d think with specs like that, it would cost you an arm and a leg to get your hands on one, but if you get in early and back their Indiegogo campaign, you can pick one up for US $399! You can also pre-order on their website for $499, however, Indiegogo orders will be fulfilled first, then website orders. Also, it’s cheaper on their Indiegogo campaign, so it’s a no brainer. It looks like they’ll retail for $529 after the campaign ends, which is still a very reasonable price for this board.

Of course, this is all based on what I’ve seen from them online but I’ll post a full rider review as soon as I get my hands on one.
