Best Electric Skateboards Australia in 2022, According to Riders' Reviews

Posted by Evolve Skateboards on

Electric skateboards are taking Australia and the world by storm at the moment. It's the hottest new hobby to wind down and explore new places. These battery-powered skateboards can lift up your mood but also make it easier to travel up hills and longer distances. Especially in nicer weather, they're a great alternative to taking public transport or a car. 

There's nothing quite like that endless carving feeling that an electric longboard can give you, especially when it comes effortlessly by just pressing the trigger. It's intuitive and easy to control. 

There are electric skateboards for just about every rider, and below, we listed what they have to say about each Evolve board. 

 

Best Electric Skateboards Australia: Hadean Bamboo All Terrain

The Hadean Bamboo All-terrain is powerful and responsive. The breaks feel strong yet progressive, and the extra width to the board gives an amazing grip and makes riding long distances very comfortably. One of the riders highlighted how this board feels under the feet in his review.

"So much torque, never-ending fun and the grippy tyres make everything the endless wave perfect. I couldn't ask for a better board", said Hamza M.

As it's the Hadean Series is the best of the best in the electric skateboard world, you pay for what you get. On social media, one rider commented that the investment was really worth it. "I know it's an expensive board, but it's well made and looks awesome, so happy I brought it :-)", said Ian W.

Best Electric Skateboards Australia: Hadean Carbon 2in1

Evolve Skateboards knocked it out of the park with the Hadean Carbon 2in1. This electric longboard makes a lot of sense for the rider who wants a board that climbs hills without sacrificing any performance and stability at speed. The stiffness of the carbon deck is ideal for high speed and also for tall/heavy riders.

The Hadean Series was built from the ground up, and the difference is clear, as mentioned by Armando P. in his review. "It is just so massive and so well built that I haven't found any flaws in my time with it. After owning a GTR Carbon and upgrading to this board, I have not regretted any bit of my decision. Anyone on the fence, I recommend stopping waiting and getting yourself one." 

Besides the award-winning carbon deck, this board gives you the option to use it with all-terrain or street wheels setups. What does it mean? You can ride anywhere: from concrete and smooth surfaces to grass, gravel and compact sand. You name it!

The newest Hadean Carbon All Terrain maintains the sleek design that Evolve is known for but is a much more powerful board, with amazing uphill capabilities and far greater stability at speed. It's also far more confidence-inspiring in rough terrains because of its AT tyres. Also, no range anxiety with this board: it can ride for 40km with one single charge. 

The Hadean Series has a new remote control, the Phaze remote, with groundbreaking features, which is highlighted by one of the riders in his recent review. "The board is amazing, but the new remote is on a whole new level. Bomber build, greatly improved functionality. Super grateful to have this in my quiver of toys. I have had a perm-a-grin on my face ever since my very first ride on an Evolve board!", said Ken C.

The flex of the bamboo deck and the option of using the street wheels or all-terrain tyres give this board a nicely well-rounded and versatile performance. It doesn't go unnoticed by riders who recently bought this board. "Off-road ride amazed me as I wasn't expecting such great performance in rough terrain. Great battery life and smooth controls", said Stacey C.

Novice riders can jump on this board and have a great time because you can customise the acceleration and breaking points. This customisation feature allows you to start slower, improve your skills and grow into it. This is the board if you want to future-proof your investment.

Best Electric Skateboards Australia: Hadean Carbon Street

The actual ride feeling of the Hadean Carbon Street is what it's all about, especially when you have smooth surfaces to ride on. For starters, it feels much more like a traditional longboard and is often considered the purest form of skating. Street wheels combined with the power and responsiveness of the Hadean Series give you a super stable and fast ride, as noted by some riders. "The Hadean has amazing torque, amazing range, and it's much quieter than the GTR", commented Daniel C.

The chassis carbon deck is the latest innovation in the electric skateboarding world. This award-winning skateboard deck gives you a stable ride at high speed, which can not only be put into numbers. "I fell in love with this board the second I pulled that trigger in Corsa [mode]. I've never used an electric longboard that packs this much power while maintaining such a sleek profile", commented Sam S.

The Hadean Bamboo Street is undeniably cool, and let's be honest: the Hadean Bamboo deck looks damn beautiful. It features our first-ever drop down in a wood deck. This, combined with a wider concave shape, let the rider lock their feet in for increased stability while carving and tackling off-road trails. It also features an adjustable wheelbase, centre grip tape, laser engraved logos, and cutouts to mimic the iconic look of the Carbon. 

The Hadean Bamboo Street packs a lot of power (aka Dual 3000w motors) while maintaining such a sleek profile and comes with the new Phaze remote. "I love the remote and the functions and the tech that this board has. It's very smooth on acceleration and power", said Socal Legend, an Evolve Ambassador from the USA.

Why Would You Want an Electric Skateboard?

  • You don't want to get all sweaty.
  • You want to ditch using public transport.

 

What to Know Before Buying an Electric Skateboard?

  • Where you'll ride it: Off-road trails or concrete/smooth footpaths? Remember to take this into account when choosing the wheels setup for your electric skateboard;
  • Performance in real-world conditions: make sure that the specs advertised are the same that riders are getting in the real world. 
  • Warranty & Support: the last thing you want is to have a broken board in the garage because there's no warranty or parts to fix it. Remember that the cheaper your board, the more likely you're going to need to replace spare parts in the near future;

Electric skateboards aren't cheap. They range from $$1,199 for a basic compact board to more than $3,000 for a high-end version with powerful motors and extra battery capacity.
