Yes, you read that correctly. You can actually buy an affordable all-terrain electric skateboard. This is one of the most fun gadgets that I’ve tried this year. Along with the Nuff board, I used one of these for short commutes during a recent trip to Michigan.
This affordable all-terrain electric skateboard conquers rough sidewalks and obstacles with airless 6″ tires. Unlike pneumatic tires, inflation and leaks will never be a problem! The deck itself is slightly flexible to enhance ride quality. Finally, the deck is raised up with spacers to prevent wheel bite.
In my experience so far, I have easy ridden over harsh sidewalk edges that are taller than most longboard wheels. On any other board, I would have been thrown off immediately. I really enjoyed the ability to ride anywhere, not worrying about whether I would have smooth sidewalks and clean pavement. Ultimately, this board truly allows you to ride around small town USA where bike lanes and eboard friendly roads don’t always exist.
With a price tag of less than $500, the board is not without flaws. The version used in this video features a 6S battery which is a bit weak in my opinion. Secondly, the ESCs are somewhat jerky from a stop, as is common with belt drive boards. Fortunately, diyeboard now offers this deck with a 10S battery, improved ESC, and a newer remote. I plan to try this option in my quest to find an affordable platform with great performance.

For those fortunate enough to have smooth roads and sidewalks, the Nuff board is a great choice! Check out my review of the Nuff Electric Skateboard.
