As batteries and motors improve, the future of transportation is looking more electric with electric bikes and longboards. While electric bikes have been a popular commuting option, electric longboards are also becoming popular as an easy way to get around. It’s hard to picture a more mellow commute than zipping to work on a longboard that requires little work.

When considering the best electric longboard—for either a commute or for fun—the biggest debate seems to be in choosing either hub or belt motors. Hub motors are enclosed in the wheels themselves, for a smooth look. Belt motors are often attached to the underside of the board, with a wide belt running down to the wheel. While there are upsides and downsides to each type of motor, even passionate debates don’t reveal a clear winner. More recently, hub motors have improved, so if they’ve been a disappointment to you in the past, they might be worth another look. Generally, the biggest complaint is that most belt motors won’t let the wheels spin if your battery runs out. So if the possibility of walking a great distance with your board is a deal breaker, stick to the hub motors. With a hub motor, the board is set up to still allow the wheel to roll even when you’re out of juice. Otherwise, opinions are pretty evenly split between the two options.

To help you find the right electric longboard, we dug through thousands of reviews for a variety of electric longboards available online. Based on our research, these are some of the best electric longboards you can get right now.

Editor's Note

The recommendations in this guide are based on thorough product and market research by our team of expert product reviewers. The picks are based on examining user reviews, product specifications, and, in some limited cases, our experience with the specific products named.

The Puaida punches above its price tag with features like extra LED lights for safety, including both a red tail light and white headlight. Reviewers commented that the board itself is better than expected, although surprisingly heavy and stiff, with eight layers of maple and a weight limit of 280 pounds. Older reviews mentioned troubles with the remote, with two shoppers noting the remote quit working shortly after purchase. The responsive customer service replaced both those reported remotes, and there’s an updated remote as of 2022.

While the 90 mm wheels are smaller than some other boards on this list, reviewers reported hitting 22 miles per hour, above the advertised 20 mph speed. One shopper warned other users about the difficulty of stopping at high speed, particularly when going downhill. Since the single motor only brakes on one wheel, this user found it difficult to stop. For a reasonable price, and with the heavier weight limit, this longboard will get most folks on the pavement and riding effortlessly.

Pros

  • Quiet motor

  • Red LED tail light

  • Responsive customer support

Cons

  • Slow acceleration

  • Issues with remote

  • Can be challenging to brake

Product image of Backfire Zealot S Belt-Driven Electric Skateboard
Backfire Zealot S Belt-Driven Electric Skateboard

With snazzy purple ambient lighting, people will see you coming on the Backfire Zealot S. They’ll need to look quick because you’ll zoom past with those two 850-Watt belt-driven motors and coast smoothly up the hill, no thanks to any effort on your part. The only effort you might need to extend for the Backfire Zealot S will come from taking out your wallet; the Zealot S has a bit of a price tag attached. While reviewers universally indicated the longboard is a great value, the warranty ending at six months feels a bit stingy given its cost.

As one reviewer noted, the cost of the board feels justified by the recent increase in gas prices. By using this board for their work commute, the reviewer has reduced their car use, saving fuel as well as wear and tear on their vehicle. As long as your commute is within its 22-mile range, using the Zealot S to reduce car trips is a great idea. Reviewers also commented on the smoothness of the acceleration and the easy braking, attributing the responsiveness of the board to those dual belt-driven motors.

Pros

  • Two belt-driven motors

  • Large 96 mm wheels

  • Range of 22 miles

Cons

  • 180-day warranty

Product image of Meepo Shuffle V4 Classic Electric Skateboard
Meepo Shuffle V4 Classic Electric Skateboard

Advertised as beginner-friendly, yet still having enough zoom for more advanced riders, the Meepo Shuffle has gone through a couple of revisions to arrive at today’s Shuffle (V4). The specifics on this board are a bit hard to find and sometimes offer different information on the same page. For example, the charging time is listed on the Amazon page as 28 minutes to full. Impressive—until you look a bit closer. That charging speed is with the 8-Amp charger, sold separately. Looking at the manufacturer page, way down at the bottom, the charging speed is listed as over 2.5 hours.

The differences between advertised speed and range comes up in the reviews, with some shoppers being disappointed at their experience. While it’s important to consider how much rider weight and experience can impact an electric longboard’s speed and distance, for some reviewers, the Meepo Shuffle fell a bit short. Overall, however, shoppers have been impressed with the value of the board and the quick braking.

Pros

  • Top speed of 29 mph

  • Responsive braking

Cons

  • Issues with remote

  • Unresponsive customer service

  • Issues with charging

Blitzart 38-Inch Hurricane Electric Longboard

If the weight of most electric longboards leaves you groaning, the Blitzart Hurricane is a board that focuses on keeping the weight down. At a svelte 14 pounds, the Hurricane is noticeably lighter than most electric longboards. Add in the cut-out handle, and you’ve got an easy-to-carry board when you aren’t riding it. The range on this board isn’t impressive, estimated between eight to ten miles, depending on the rider and conditions. Reviewers noted concerns about the skateboard and remote communication, with several shoppers experiencing glitchy communication when braking with the remote and rough acceleration.

The warranty on the Hurricane through Blitzart is a disappointing 15 days. An extended warranty on the manufacturer’s website, for $40, will see you covered for three months, minus a restocking fee for a skateboard return. While several reviewers commented on the difficulty of getting in touch with support, more recent reviews indicate more supportive customer service. Last of all, the charging time reported by Blitzart for this skateboard is three hours, one of the longer charge times.

Pros

  • Cut-out handle

  • Solid customer support

  • Lightweight board

Cons

  • Issues with controller

  • 3 hours to fully charge

  • Short warranty

Product image of Hiboy S22 Electric Skateboard
Hiboy S22 Electric Skateboard

With sharp looks from a red-and-black paint job, the Hiboy S22 Electric Skateboard offers good performance in a great-looking package. Hiboy is conservative with their reported speeds, advertising the S22 at a maximum speed of 19 mph. In a review, one user weighing 180 pounds was able to reach 21 mph going up a 2% grade hill. Reviewers often say that the board exceeded expectations. Another user commented on the extra grippy coating on the deck, noticing that even with a slightly shorter board, he felt he had lots of foot space.

The Hiboy S22 has a limited one-year warranty, with the hub motors and battery covered for only six months. Among those who experienced issues, several reported support reaching out to correct troubles with wheels and honouring warranties. For one shopper in particular, the Hiboy was a repeat purchase a year later after her first board stopped holding a charge.

Pros

  • Sharp red-and-black look

  • Grippy deck

  • Large 3.5-inch wheels

Cons

  • Shorter board at 36 inches

  • 3-hour charge time

Product image of Teamgee H5 37-Inch Electric Skateboard
Teamgee H5 37-Inch Electric Skateboard

By integrating the battery into the board, the Teamgee H5 is a thinner longboard that reduces the space between the board and the road to three inches. With a lower center of gravity, reviewers noted the H5 has great stability, keeping you low and in control. Charging this board from an empty battery is reported to be about two hours, fairly average for an electric longboard. One reviewer was pleased that the remote used USB-C for quicker charging.

Generally, shoppers were happy with the speed of this board, as well as the distance on a single charge. Reviews were mixed on the customer support; some shoppers had their boards or parts replaced under the one-year warranty, while others had difficulty even contacting Teamgee. With the hub motors and the integrated battery, this board doesn’t look electric at a glance, which adds to the appeal.

Pros

  • Thin board with integrated battery

  • Quick charging

  • Fast up hills

Cons

  • Stiff board

  • Lackluster remote

  • Inconsistent customer service
