Best Electric Skateboard Brands (Budget-Friendly)

Updated: December 27, 2022 | Shreducation

Riding an electric skateboard is a blast.

The ability to cruise without having to push is mind-blowing.

I wanted to put this list of the best electric skateboard brands to help you research. Each brand offers something unique and will fit different riding styles.

I’ve fallen in love with mini electric skateboards, but they’re not for everyone.


Meepo’s website

Headquarters: Shenzen, China
Warranty: 3-6 Months

Kieran Mao founded Meepo after he built his own electric skateboard in 2017. He posted a video on YouTube of his build and got a ton of requests to sell them. So he quit his day job (an engineer) and went full steam ahead building Meepo. Their boards are made at their Shenzen, China factory. They claim to have sold over 120,000 electric skateboards.


Backfire’s website

Headquarters: Shanghai, China
Warranty: 6 Months

backfire electric skateboards

Backfire was founded in 2012 to create budget-friendly electric skateboards. They’ve since expanded and now offer a wide range of setups. Their about page claims their founders are Randy and Jerry? Not the most convincing.

Revel Boards

Revel’s website

Headquarters: San Diego, California
Warranty: 6 Months

Revel started in 2017 with the mission to be “committed to a sustainable future of skating further, emitting more smiles, and less pollution.” They’re a “build your own” electric skateboard kit and sell complete setups. While there are some limitations, the easiness of customizing your electric skateboard with Revel is awesome.

Bustin Boards

Bustin’s website

Headquarters: Baltimore, Maryland
Warranty: 3-6 Months

Bustin Boards started as a longboarding company in NYC and has since expanded to electric. They have some of the coolest-looking setups, in my opinion. The cool part is the amount of customization you can do when ordering. Graphics, battery enclosure design, trucks – you can make yours unique.


Exway’s website

Headquarters: Shanghai, China
Warranty: 6 Months

Exway was started in 2016 and offers some solid electric setups. Their tagline is “Born for freedom,” originally focusing on those that live in a city environment. They now offer a wide variety, ranging from electric cruisers to high-performance offroad setups.

Evolve is an Australian-based electric skateboard company that started in 2008. They’re focused on creating the “endless wave” experience. Mixing their love for snowboarding and surfing, they offer many customization options.

Onewheel’s website

Headquarters: Santa Cruz, California
Warranty: 6 Months – 1 Year

onewheel electric skateboard

Onewheel is different than all the other brands on this list since its design literally has one wheel. Technically it’s not a traditional electric skateboard, but it’s still something you might want to consider. I have one, and it’s super fun for trail riding.


I've been skateboarding for over twenty years. When I'm not skating, I'm most likely surfing my local break. The goal is to fuel the growth of all genres of skateboarding.
