          The Need For Speed

          This board tops out at 20mph on the flat, with lightning-fast acceleration to ensure that no time is wasted hanging around!

          If snowboarding is your thing, you’ll be impressed with the carving ability and smoothness provided by this board’s 1500W motors and high-end trucks, which mimics the flow of snowboarding and kite boarding to produce a slickly enhanced turn of speed, with excellent control and braking power.

          Makes Learning Easy

          The advanced software controls of the Boosted Dual means that the board’s speed and power can be adjusted through three settings to suit all skill levels, allowing you to graduate from complete novice to high performance boarder without the need to change your ride.

          The deck itself is responsive and well buffered, offering just the right amount of flexibility to allow you to build speed and corner tightly, with the type of manoeuvrability you’d expect from such a top quality, highly engineered board.

          Customer Reviews and Scores

          This board doesn’t come cheap at $1,299, but the price tag is justified by the board’s high spec, the advantages of the motor, and the fact that the board will progress with you from novice to expert, without the need to upgrade.

          The board has achieved a 93% five star rating on Amazon, with all of the board’s reviews enthusing about the board’s ease of use, smoothness of the ride, and ability to build your skillset without outgrowing the board’s abilities. Many reviewers mention that this is an excellent commuter board that arrives already fitted with great street trucks, and it is more than capable of holding its own in the skate park and on the hills too.

          One point to note is that the board cannot be used in very wet conditions, as it is not waterproof, and use in inclement weather may damage the electrics, but this is true of most electric longboards.

          The speed of acceleration is also something that has proven popular with the board’s owners, and with most reviewers agreeing that you can get 7-8miles of powered usage out of a one hour charge, the battery life of this board is not to be sniffed at either.

          Conclusion

          Boosted’s Dual 1500W electric skateboard is an excellent commuter board, but won’t let you down at the skate park either. The board can run for an impressive 7-8miles on a one hour charge, and is notable for its acceleration, power braking and ease of carving.

            This is like the Mercedes Benz of longboards. My buddy has the 2000W version which is really nice, but that was a bit out of my budget. I plumped for this one instead and am really happy with my purchase. I go out riding at the weekend and get a good 6 miles out of the battery, and that is coping with the San Fran hills!

            I only have a kit made electric board at the moment, but I had a go on one of these at a trade show. They are AMAZING. The ride is so smooth. Unfortunately I can’t afford any of the Boosted boards at the moment, but one day maybe…
