On first glance, you may see a typical longboard, when you espy any of the Boosted Boards. You may see a very attractive longboard, made of 100% bamboo, with eye-popping orange wheels. What you're missing is the added horsepower under the board. Boosted Boards are powerful, lightweight electric skateboards, that will give you the sensation of riding a wave while you cruise through your city.

Boosted offers three different longboards, the Boosted Single, the Boosted Dual and the Boosted Dual+. The Single is the most basic and cheapest. The Dual adds a bit more power and speed to the mix, and the Boosted Dual+ turns up the power and speed another notch and gives you a little more traction on the griptape. 

All of the Boosted Boards feature a low profile, inner mount design for the motor (or motors in the case of the Dual and Dual+). This design protects the motor, while keeping the longboard's profile low, maintaining the integrity of an authentic longboard ride. Check out the Boosted Board in action in the video below. 

As you can see from the video, the Boosted Dual+ is pretty much top of the line when it comes to electric boards. It will climb 25% grades, which means that you can conquer just about any hill in your city. It's 2,000 watt engine can also reach 22mph in speed, and the lithium iron phosphate batter will carry you up to 7 miles on a single charge. 

The two other Boosted Boards are incrementally less powerful than the Dual+. The Dual features a 1,500 watt engine that will climb 20% grades and reach 20mph in speed, while the Single has a 1,000 watt engine that will climb 10% grades and reach 18mph in speed.

The Boosted Boards are controlled by a hand held Bluetooth remote control. The remote utilizes an ergonomic thumb wheel that allows you to accelerate or brake. The LED display interface will let you know how much range is left on the board. The remote is simple and easy to learn.

The Boosted lithium battery will take you about an hour to charge fully (30 minutes of charging will give you about 85% battery life). On a full charge, the Boosted Dual and Dual+ have a range of 7 miles, while the Boosted Single can travel up to 8 miles.

When it comes to electric boards, the Boosted Boards are top of the line when it comes to speed and climbing hills. They aren't the fastest, but the Dual+ will not only climb any hill in your city, it's only a hair slower than other top-speed boards. Of course, if you favor economy over speed, the Single will still hit 18mph, and it's a great value.

One of the biggest advantages of the Boosted Boards is that they are super lightweight. Most electric skateboards weigh in the 30-50 pound range. The heaviest of the Boosted Boards weighs only 22 pounds (the Single only weighs 13.5 pounds). This makes the board very easy to carry when you're not using it. 

The Boosted Boards are not only great for a fun time carving up the streets of your city, they're also an excellent tool for the urban commuter. You can weave in and out of the crowd and avoid traffic and parking worries when you take a Boosted Board to work. So, if you're looking for some cruising fun or a great way to get around town, you may want to check out the Boosted Boards.
