Blitzart Electric Longboard

This is my first e-board and I can say it is a blast. 15+ blocks 1 mile which used to take me 15-20 min. to walk now takes 5. I have been riding the Blitzart board in NYC for about 2 months, 100+ miles and it is a solid board. Riding in NYC has its challenges and I feel it when riding. Going over rough terrain the motor skips, and you feel the vibration through the board. From block to block, the acceleration is a bit slow, you don't notice this until you have to start and stop at each light.

When you travel long distances, over 3 miles, I could use a bit more power. Tornado Electric Longboard has a 3-month limited warranty. Any defects due to workmanship to the motor, battery and internal electronics are covered by this warranty. The warranty does not cover user damage. Extended warranty is also available. At $279 MSRP, it is a great board, for beginners. I'm ready to step it up and most people will want to after 100 miles.

For kids, this is a great board.

Specs: TORNADO Electric Longboards - Orange
With my weight 160 pounds, the board does about 17 and close to 10 miles.

  • RANGE AND SPEED – With a max speed of up to 17 MPH and a range of over 10 miles. Equipped with a secured 36V, 4.4Ah and 144Wh Lithium-Ion battery pack which can be fully charged within 3 hours. 
  • ERGONOMIC WIRELESS REMOTE - Easy to hold wireless remote that controls acceleration and deceleration with reverse capability. Two-speed modes to beginners and advanced riders. Hold function to assist in getting on and off the board. The remote control is rechargeable and comes with a wrist strap. 
  • MAPLE WOOD + BAMBOO DECK & PREMIUM GRIP TAPE - The 6-ply maple wood deck sandwiched between a layer of bamboo on the top and bottom of the board giving it more flexibility and sturdiness. The deck is outfitted with grip tape and is concave to keep the rider's feet firmly in place and stay on the board. Supports up a max weight of 300 lb.
  • 350W BRUSHLESS HUB-MOTOR - Hub Motor vs Belt Drive Motor? Hub motors are more reliable and less problematic. Our hub motors give the board an aesthetically pleasing appearance to the overall design. Hub-motors are much quieter than belt driven motors. More importantly, the hub motors board can be kicked like a regular board with or without battery. 
  • SHIPS FULLY ASSEMBLED AND READY TO RIDE - Save yourself the time and hassle of the assembly when you can ride your board instantly out of the box.

I am looking to review and demo boards if interested in sending me a board to review, please reach out.
