Skateboarding has always been an industry driven by pivots and shifts. Since the Z-Boys first cracked the rigid conventions of competitive skating in the 1970s, the skating industry has made leaps and bounds in style and technology. One of the most elevating innovations was the invention of the electric skateboard in 1999. Nearly two decades later, that breakthrough has fructified in the Boosted Mini Electric Skateboard, the sleekest and most dependable electric shortboard to ever be rolled out.

Boosted has carved out a niche for itself as the preeminent electric skateboard maker, and the Mini is one of its gnarliest creations yet. Wrapped in Boosted’s trademark neon orange wheels, the mini comes in two models: the standard range model (S) which can ride up to seven miles and has a top speed of 18 miles per hour, and the longer range (X) model, which can go 14 miles without charging, and has a top speed of about 20 miles per hour. The S model stays pretty grounded at $749–making it the company’s cheapest board–while the S model runs slightly higher, at $999. Both boards are 29.5 inches, about average for a typical short board. Boosted is also ramping up its line of longboards, with the $1,399 Plus and the $1,599 Stealth, which can reach speeds of 20 and 24 mph respectively. Boosted is stacking the deck with their newest generation of models, and we’re on board.

Purchase: $749
