I bought the Skatebolt in August 2020 and use it extensively at my university. In three months of use, I've travelled 300 miles and hit a top speed of 30 mph. Super reliable, I've never had a single problem and haven't had to replace any parts, despite the high mileage. I haven't tried other electric boards, but I would immediately buy this again for the quality build and reasonable price.
Review of the Tornado Pro
Pros: Overall good quality and steady to ride when not in higher gears. Unlike some other boards the bottom is a single, solid piece which I appreciate. The dual motors are also a plus. This has been a good starter electric skateboard. The price range and quality was good in comparison to others I was looking at before choosing the Tornado Pro.
Cons: Once you begin to hit 10-15 MPH, the board seems to wobble, even after tightening the trucks. Throttle speeds don't seem to be consistent each time and sometimes feel like they adjust before manually adjusting them on the remote. When switching to a higher speed it seems like it over accelerates before slowing back down to the correct speed. This is also an issue with the remote, which is extremely sensitive. When the remote is used to accelerate, the board seems to jerk forward rather than smoothly accelerate. If acceleration and speed changes could be smoother, it would make for a better ride.
I have been skating for years and this has to be my favorite thing to come. after a long day at work being able to cruise around town still and not get tired is amazing. riding with friends is also fun going to the beach or just going on long loops that we never would've on a normal board.
Blown away by this skatebolt. Most fun I've had in years highly recommended Make you feel 16 again Worth every penny
My son loves his Skatebolt Tornado Pro. The whole experience from purchase to delivery was great!
I love this board! And I must say I weigh 195lbs and it had no problem taking me up a 15-20% grade. I took it for a spin three days in a row And still have half a charge left. Having so much fun with it!
This is truely a great board at a great price! Absolutely meets all expectations. I bought this for my 27 year old adult son for his birthday. He was a classic boarder (skate and snow) through-out his childhood and into adulthood. Unfortunately and tragically he now suffers from he schizophrenia but he is able to well manage using this board. When I see him going down the street in the neighborhood, with a big smile on his face, I know it has a positive therapeutic effect on his mental well-being. The battery life, speed, and range meets the specifications. I only have three minor suggestions for your consideration for future versions. (One suggestion likely being an unusual request.) Consider adding built-in headlight, some type of built-in handle, and (here's the unusual one) a way to limit the top speed in more of a permanent way separate and distinct from the remote control. (Which can easily be adjusted.) For my son, I'd prefer a top speed of about 15-18 MPH.
Thanks so much for this nice board.
I live in Rosemead,ca and have been riding Eboard for a couple years. Whether it is climbing hills or going through rough terrain the board always puushes through. The battery life gets me at least 15 miles and I've clocked my top speed at 23.8 mph. Well done Skatebolt team.
Had the board for about 2 weeks. Done some light testing (about 30 miles ridden), no long range stuff yet, some pretty steep hills. Acceleration and break curves are AMAZING, so smooth, even at high and medium setting.
Got this skate because of a review on youtube! and till today for 5 months and still running great! And I have 230 pounds! Lol. And yes it's fast and worth any penny!
I have been riding this board around NYC and Central Park like a savage since it arrived on April 27th. I am 39 years old. 6'1" 185 lbs. I can get it to go 28 mph down hills, 25 mph uphills. picked this one for the price, advertised speed/battery mileage. It has been great so far. Stay safe everyone!
If you looking for a best bugget! This is the one! Smooth breaks.. fast acceleration.. really soft and nice trucks! He turn of alone in uphill once.. its my first day.. Let's s see how's going and let you know more in few weeks!
Awesome, is all I can say right now. I just got this board yesterday and have already put about 5 miles on it. I was pretty nervous ordering a board with very little reviews and no video reviews. I took a leap of faith and so far I have not been disappointed. The only electric skateboard I have been on before this was a Liftboard single, this board blows that board away by far and it should.
