There are a ton of electric skateboard brands out there.

How do you know which one to pick?

In this article, we’ve narrowed it down to the top brands. If you end up purchasing an electric skateboard, wear a helmet! They’re a lot sketchier than your average skateboard/longboard.

Meepo

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.

Onewheel

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

Onewheel is different than all the other brands on this list since it 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.

How much is a good electric skateboard?

A good electric skateboard ranges from $400 up to a few thousand. If you’re just getting into it, I’d suggest getting something in the $400-$800 range.

Is buying an electric skateboard worth it?

Buying an electric skateboard was one of the best decisions I’ve made. They’re incredibly fun to ride. Wearing the proper safety equipment is necessary – they’re very sketchy!

How long do electric skateboards last?

It depends, but on average, 1-2 years before you start replacing parts.

Can electric skateboards go uphill?

Yes, the best type of electric skateboard for uphill riding is belt-drives.

Should I wear a helmet on an electric skateboard?

Yes, wear a helmet riding an electric skateboard. I had a friend wipe out riding an electric skateboard without a helmet, hit his head on the pavement, and was airlifted to the hospital. He’s okay but lucky.
