ZBoard 2 Electric Skateboard

Jan 7, 2015

Electric skateboards are coming on strong as we hit the halfway point of this decade, and the ZBoard 2 promises to be the best of the bunch. More precisely, it promises to be the “lightest, fastest, longest running weight-sensing electric skateboard ever.” Let’s investigate.

The original ZBoard debuted in 2012, but this new version features larger and more sensitive footpads, a lighter and slimmer lithium battery, and a new 500W brushless motor. How’s it work? Simple. Just lean forward to go and lean back to stop. You can cruise at walking speed or max it out 20 miles per hour. When you leaning back it also triggers the regenerative braking, so while you’re taking it easy going down that hill you’re also recharging the battery. Choose from two flavors: the Blue Edition (16 miles per charge and weighing 16 lbs.) and Pearl Edition (24 miles per charge, 18 lbs.). [Purchase]
