They have been compared to some of the newest and most fun urban sports created, both on water and on land. Not sure what we are talking about?
Well, let? put it this way: have you ever seen somebody pass you by so fast on a skate you wondered if you imagined it? If your answer is yes then it has happened to you too. You have seen people on motorized skateboards. If you doubt something like that has ever crossed your path it is high time you get familiar with these products.
Motorized skateboards are the next evolutionary step in skateboard history. One day an old skateboarder probably got tired of using his feet as propellers in order to move about. So he added a small motor under his board which caused it to almost sit flat on the ground. He then added bigger tires which made the ride taller and safer. Last but not least he connected a pump or a steering device with the help of a long wire attached to the engine. This is how the motorized skateboards must have been born. Maybe someday everything will have a motor and run on its own.
In the meantime, motorized skateboards have also differentiated from electric skateboards which do not operate like mentioned above but come with a wireless controller instead that sends signals to a rechargeable battery attached to the engine. These move by means of electricity while motorized skateboards pump gas.
Motorized skateboards have come to vary a lot in shape, size, color or pattern and the speed limit they can reach is most commonly somewhere between 15 and 30 miles per hour. Apart from aesthetics and customization some may also have very visible missing or extra gadgets: two, three or four wheels of different sizes, including motorcycle wheels; a handle much like that of a scooter, brake lever.
Motorized skateboards can be separated into two large groups: the city boards and the all terrain boards. Of these the latter give the rider the possibility of exploring terrains such as sand, grass or metal and also move uphill, all of which were impossible with the regular skateboard. But compared to the electric ones, motorized skateboards have the advantage of a much longer run time since they can be refueled at any gas station while the former take around 3 4 hours to charge.
So not only are the motorized skateboards more practical than their fellow electrical siblings and all the while less tiresome than their ancestors, the regular skateboard, they also have the amazing ability to entertain at high speeds. Far more noisy and way faster than the majority of inventions this grand category of sport objects contains, motorized skateboards are the perfect way to go if you are both a bit lazy and a little speed freak. Once you get the hang of things you will surely be cruising the town like a wave. Or a snowy mountain. Or like you did back in the day when being a kid and riding your skate was all you did.
