Buying the best electric skateboard can be a daunting task. You’ve got to decide between the brand you like and the model, then size up the available selection and make your payment choices. But did you also consider what you will use your new electric skateboard for? What type of deck and trucks are you going to need? Well, these are questions you should ask before you go shopping for your board.
One of the biggest concerns parents have about their children getting their own skateboards is if they will get hurt while using them. The truth of the matter is that most quality electric skateboards come with a braking system. If the braking system breaks, it is not the skateboard, but the rider that get hurt. Some of the safety features on most of today’s boards include multiple settings for the braking system so it can be adjusted for any user, a brake light that goes on when the batteries are low and a safety key to prevent the deck from being thrown away in an accident.
Another thing to consider is whether or not your new electric skateboard will run on battery or gas. Believe it or not, there are many electric skateboards that can be ridden on both battery and gas. One of the pros of an electric board is that riders don’t have to worry about stopping and riding again because the rider doesn’t have to put the gas pedal to get moving again. But they do need to make sure they get their air travel-friendly skateboard. Some of the best brands for this are Kustom, Electric, eNCode and Torque. These companies all sell air travel-friendly boards and even though they all have different sets of features, they all ride nice and smoothly on a battery.
