Electric Skateboards: Revolution In Transportation

Electric Skateboards: Revolution In Transportation

August 02, 2019

When you wake up in the morning, are you excited to go to work?

For me, the commute to work was something I dreaded doing every day and probably the worst part of my day. Sitting in a car stuck in traffic, or jammed into a train with a bunch of sweaty people, that is simply not what I wanted to be doing with my time, let alone for over an hour each day. Longer commutes are associated with lower rates of well-being and the average American spends 25.4 minutes commuting, with Los Angeles, Boston and Atlanta having some commutes that last over 90 minutes! This transportation structure isn’t sustainable, and it is taking a toll on our mental well-being.

Enter Electric Skateboarding.

Where I used to be stuck in traffic, now I glide by effortlessly, leaving the commuter zombies in my wake. Jamming to my music has never felt so good and the board feels connected to my body in the way a car never could be. I get to experience sights, smells, and interactions during my commute that I never would have from inside my car and, best of all, I get to work faster, happier and sweat-free.

Once I get to work, I pop my board under my desk, maybe plug in a charger to top off my battery and open my laptop, free of worry for any theft, vandalism or bad weather that might be on my mind had I left a bike locked up outside. I don’t need to change out of my sweaty riding clothes, and I can ride to work in my jeans.

There is a reason why electric skateboarding is catching on with commuters all over the world. With a cheap cost of entry, and low maintenance costs, users can easily replace their car with an “e-skate”. For just about $500, you can snag a Maxfind board, which is no slouch when it comes to the specs. With a blistering top speed of 25 mph/ 40 km/h and a range of 40 miles/ 60 km ( the battery upgrade), the Maxfind electric skateboards will get you wherever you need to go quickly, and efficiently.

In fact, buying an e-skate was one of the best decisions I have made for my wallet for a long time. Now that I have stopped paying for gas every day, I have easily begun to justify the cost of my board, never mind the Ubers that I was once so reliant upon! The size of the world that I can explore on foot has expanded by 10x! I find myself riding down streets that I have never been down before simply to explore them, hunting down new places to grab food in my city, and even making riding with some new friends along the way. Not to mention how good it feels to reduce my carbon footprint by a huge amount.

If you don't have the chance to experience an electric skateboard yourself, ask someone who has played an electric skateboard. I am sure they will welcome the chance to teach someone about this innovative transportation solution that is taking the world by storm. Then, when you are ready, head over to Maxfind Boards’ page and find the board that fits your needs. I have found Maxfind's boards to be extremely high quality, and an excellent way to get started in the eskating revolution.

Maxfind FF PlUS

MaxFind’s FF Plus device is another high-performing electric skateboard. It rides the line between being a longboard and a skateboard with a length of just under three feet. This board offers stronger motors than the Max4 Pro, with dual 1200 hub motors providing exceptional torque. This increased power ups the hill climbing potential of the MaxFind FF Plus to 35%. Its top speed of 24 miles per hour is solid, and the highest strength battery option allows riders to go for up to 33 miles without a charge of the battery. This device comes standard with large 165 mm wheels, giving it great off-road and high-speed concrete capabilities. 

Both the Max4 Pro and the FF Plus come equipped with four distinct riding modes, which makes them ideal for riders who are still learning or looking to improve their skills gradually.

Maxfind Max 4 Pro Review – Can it compete?

Maxfind, a Chinese brand that has been around since the beginning of time. A brand that delivers budget boards in nice packages for casual eskaters, but has always been ignored by eskate enthusiasts, as their price vs value proposition was not as high as the other Chinese brands. If you have read my previous takes on Chinese brand, you might have sensed that I hated the brand, that’s because their product and marketing strategies made me feel that they are just preying on the less informed buyers.

Well, that idea of mine has been shaken up with the new lineups that Maxfind introduced awhile ago, and today, we are going to talk about the Maxfind Max 4 Pro.

Today we take a look at the Maxfind Max2 Pro electric skateboard hands-on to see how good it is.

Electric skateboards can be very expensive. Some even crack the $1000+ mark. Many riders think they need to spend this much for a quality board, but the Maxfind Max2 Pro shows that isn’t the case. For a very reasonable price, it offers power, range, and great construction.

You can choose between two styles - a single motor edition or dual-motor edition. Let’s take a closer look at the features of both, so you can decide which one works best for you.
