Meepo, in it’s ever growing line up of electric skateboards it going to be release a new board specifically targeted at beginner riders on February 14th. It’s designed for good to perfect road conditions as it has a drop through deck with is lower to the ground which could raise clearance issue concerns.
Here are the specs:
|Skateboard:|| 38″ Length I 9″ Width I 32.5″ Wheelbase
9 Layers Maple Drop Through Double Concave
|Top Speed:||25 mph/ 40 km/h|
|Range:||11 miles/ 17.7 km|
|Hill Climbing:||Up to 30% Grade|
|Board Weight:||16 lbs/ 7.2 kg|
|ESC||Customized Hobbywing ESC|
|Remote:||Smooth responsive throttle remote|

|Wheels:||Super High Rebound 90 mm X 56 mm 82A|
|Motors:||Super High Rebound 90 mm X 55 mm 82A|
|Charging Time:||2 Hours|
The board will also come with a 3 month warranty and start shipping Feb 14th. This seems like a good starter board for someone who has never ridden an e-board before but lacks the power and comfort of the larger boards.
If you are serious about getting in to electric skateboarding you would be better off getting the Meepoboard V2 or the NLS and getting good on that, you will have higher top speeds and not having to worry about any possible clearance issues going over things. On the other hand if you have a perfect street and only want to ride it around the block this might be the perfect board for you.
