BoardCulture 500W Dual Motor 42” Electric Skateboard Review

When you want to cruise down Main street in style, the BoardCulture Electric Skateboard is the one that you need. This sleek-looking electric skateboard is not just all style, it has the power to back up its looks.

Features and Specifications

Motor and Batteries

The BoardCulture Electric Skateboard is powered by not one, but two 250-watt electric motors. These motors are brushless, high-torque, and mounted inside the rear wheels so you do not have to worry about drive belts slipping out or snapping. Although this electric longboard is not the most powerful, it is not even as powerful as the SuperbProductions 31MPH Off Road Electric Skateboard, it can still carve up the streets no problem.

The dual 250 watt motors have enough juice to push the board to a top speed of 22 miles per hour, and it also has enough torque that it can climb up a 20-degree incline from a standing start, and can also accommodate riders that are a bit on the overweight side, but do not weigh above 300 pounds.

Deck and Wheels

The deck of the BoardCulture Electric Skateboard, just like that of VOKUL V2 Electric Skateboard Longboard, is constructed with 7 layers of Canadian maple, which is the industry standard when it comes to providing the right balance of rigidity and flexibility.

The wheels are your standard polyurethane skateboard wheels, albeit a bit bigger at 80mm diameters each. You can change the wheels when they are worn out, even the rear wheels with the in-hub motors can be replaced, however, you need to find a shop that sells those kinds of wheels.

Overall, the deck and the wheels provide enough shock absorbing capabilities that you will not feel beatdown after riding this skateboard for a couple of miles.

The Good

Comes with a free carrying bag

If you will be taking your BoardCulture Electric Skateboard on your daily commute, having a carrying bag will help a lot. Because the board is long, carrying it under your arm or holding it by its cutout handle will seem awkward, especially if you will be riding a bus or train. It is nice that BoardCulture thought about the customers enough to provide a nylon carrying case for their electric skateboard.

Has multiple riding modes

Although the board has 500 watts of power in total, it is surprisingly easy to maneuver, even those who have no skateboarding experience can get the hang of riding the BoardCulture Electric Skateboard after an afternoon of practice. It also helps that the board has 4 riding modes, level 1 being the easiest and perfect for young kids to adults who want to learn, and level 4, which is for the experts who have ridden these sorts of things for many people.

These are only some of the many benefits that come with riding the BoardCulture Electric Skateboard, you will discover more when you have one of it at home, so get one of these now!

The Bad

Horrible customer service

There are some accounts of previous owners of these boards and their struggles of just getting a customer support representative whenever they run into issues regarding the board. Although the board is constructed with quality in mind, it is a bit of a downer to know that you cannot get help immediately when you need it.

Batteries are not swappable

You might need to take your board to a licensed electrician if you want to replace your old batteries with fresh ones. Even the company itself will not supply you with replacement battery packs. On the other hand, it will be several years before the built-in batteries would start to show signs of failure.

Who is it for?

The BoardCulture Electric Skateboard is not so powerful that only seasoned riders can tame it; it is actually pretty tame, like the MEEPO Board Electric Skateboard Campus 2.0; it has enough power for a fun ride, but not enough to make it scary. This makes it the perfect practice board for those wanting to get into the electric skateboarding scene.

In addition, since the board has four different ride modes, you can dial the board down so you can practice at your leisure and then gradually go up as you get better at carving.

Conclusion

Do not let the sleek, ultra-modern design of the BoardCulture Electric Skateboard intimidate you. Sure, it might look like it is ready to blast off at the slightest push of the remote, but it is actually one of the easiest to ride electric skateboards out there.

500 watts of total power might seem scary, but it really is quite manageable. And thanks to the stability brought about by the genius board design, wide trucks, and PU wheels, it will take less than a day for you to learn how to ride the BoardCulture Electric Skateboard like a pro.
