I have been riding non-motorized longboards for years and always yearned for an electric one so I can enjoy the feeling of going downhill on any road. With a bit of research, I felt the Exway X1 Pro was the best board money can buy in terms of speed, range, weight and looks. I particularly like that they integrated the batteries into the board so you cannot even tell it is motorized. This gives the board a sleek look. This board looks like it was well designed versus other boards that look it was made from a kit. My first moment on the electric board was a bit awkward. Imagine standing on a board and someone from behind kicking your board forward. So be ready for that. The top speed of 29 mph should be more than enough for most speed freaks. To put things in perspective, that is about the speed of Olympic athlete Usain Bolt. The remote is comfortable and easy to use. Carving is easy with this board. The ride is noticeably harsher than my regular board. But this is because the bumps/time ratio is higher since i am going faster. And also because the motor is integrated into the rear wheels, their is less rubber to absorb shock. For smooth roads the bumps are not as noticeable. When available, I plan to buy the bolt on Riot belt driven system for the extra comfort because they use regular wheels.
Daniel Kwan has a few youtube videos on the Exway X1 Pro if you would like to learn more about it. The seller which I assume Exway is very responsive.
So the only negatives about this board is really a negative with electric boards versus regular boards in general. But I feel Exway does make it not as bad compared to their competitors.
– Electric boards are heavier
– Most electric boards are stiffer
– The ride is noticeably harsher because bumps/time ratio is higher.
