YUNEEC E-GO 2
US$699 ($918), yuneec.com
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.
