The power is in your hands rather than your legs with Yuneec’s E-GO 2 elec­tric skate­board. The wheels are driven by a 400-watt mo­tor and a Con­cave 6 Flex car­bon bat­tery pack, while ac­cel­er­a­tion and brak­ing are con­trolled us­ing an er­gonomic, hand­held Blue­tooth re­mote (or a free phone app). For new­bies, the 12mm wooden deck feels sta­ble un­der­foot, and ac­cel­er­a­tion can be lim­ited to avoid eat­ing pave­ment. The ride is comfy once you’re on the move, with the steer­ing re­spon­sive and pre­dictable. Flat bat­tery? No drama – the E-GO 2 works as a reg­u­lar skate­board, too.
