Next Prev Want to buy an electric skateboard?

In 2008, when Evolve Skateboards started, the electric skateboard industry was extremely small. However, in recent years, the scene has exploded as technology has progressed and has become more accessible. With so many board options out there, we often get asked, "What do I need to know before buying an electric skateboard" and "Why Evolve". To help you in this mission, we outlined 5 essential questions that you need to ask yourself before choosing which board is for you. 


1.What will be using the board for?

💭Carving/Fun?

💭Commuting? 

💭Getting around on the weekends?

💭All of the above?


2.What is the range of the boards that you are looking for?

💭Can you comfortably get there and back without worrying about mileage? 


3.What is customer support like if ever there is an issue?

💭How long is the warranty?


4.What is the weight of the electric skateboard?

💭If you run out of juice, are you going to be able to carry or kick push it home? 


5.What are you getting for your money?

💭 Who has made/assembled the board?

💭 Is it off-the-shelf from China where cost is the bottom line, or has it been made by someone who is an e-board rider and passionate about performance?
