You know the feeling; nothing beats the freedom you feel when you become one with a skateboard; communicating and feeling every nudge you make transmitted to the board as if you are one and the same, and all your wishes, becomes the skateboard’s command.
But of the entire thrill, sometimes we, the skateboard enthusiast, wish that the pushing would be a lot easier, and that’s where electric skateboards come in.
Among the companies that offers these products, the Boosted company has one of the most robust and competitive products in the world.
With the Boosted Dual Plus 2000W Electric Skateboard, they have broken the barrier between power and usability to deliver a product that goes beyond expectations in both sleekness and quality.
Let’s not take my word for it, but look at the features that set it apart from other regular electric skateboards.
Boosted Dual+ 2000W Electric Skateboard Review
The Boosted Dual Skateboard is a longboard made entirely of bamboo, with its deck measuring, 38 inches in length.
The design is cleverly made, to keep the motor housing and battery enclosure, as sleek as possible, this is set to achieve rider’s comfort; both sections are also fixed slightly above the surface of the deck to avoid damage when the board flexes.
The board also incorporates a sticky grip tape on its deck to ensure that your feet stays at the right place at all times, this also aids in maximizing the stability needed for downhill rides.
Boosted Dual+ Wheels
The wheels are made of polyurethane, whose high rebound ensures durability especially in rough roads, cracks in the streets, and also, when cruising over random debris. The wheels are 75 mm in diameter and have a firm grip on any surface, maintaining maximum stability.
How fast is the Booster Dual Plus Electric Skateboard?
With a dual drive system, incorporating 2, 1000 Watts single brushless DC motors, the boosted board can achieve a 22 miles per hour speed, of course, these figures depend on the type of terrain you are riding your skateboard on, and the rider’s weight.
The extra power also allows you to climb a maximum uphill of 25% grade.
The Booster Dual+ Battery
The Dual+ electric skateboard comes with a single standard range, 99Watt/ per Hour Lithium-ion battery which has a lifespan of more than 2000 charge cycles.
It only takes 60 minutes to charge, which will give you a range of 7 miles radius before you recharge it again, these specifications are admirable considering that most electric skateboards take about 3–5 hours for a full charge to be realized.
However, you can buy the extended range battery from the company which has a 12 miles radius range, especially if your daily activities require epic rides, and commuting.
How much does the 2000W, Booster Dual plus Longboard Weigh?
One of the most important factors when choosing an electric skateboard is how much it weighs, the last thing you really need is to carry a heavy board once it runs out of power.
The Booster dual + electric skateboard weighs 15pounds, which is not that heavy even for kids, this makes the skateboard easy to carry around if need be.
