This is my second ownboard, the first one was great quality but wasn't as comfortable as I would have liked with the 90mm put wheels. This board is very close to perfection, the larger cloud wheels, the flex deck, the acceleration and strong brakes, and the range are all spot on! As someone else said this board is no joke and will not disappoint.
Quick Background, I am 54 years old, just started skating this past summer, I own a Meepo V3 and a Vestar City SUV... I decided I wanted to add another board that was unique, the V3 is great, speedy carving machine and the Vestar is belt drive AT that I can change out the wheels. The Ownboard fits somewhere in between and I love it! I love hub motors and these did not disappoint! The 105mm wheels are a great addition as they roll over cracks and gravel pretty effortlessly. The motors ride quite and give some nice torque as well. The board has a slight drop down which is great for knowing foot placement. I have not been able to fully test the range yet but from what I can tell it has plenty of range and pretty sure that it will go at least 20miles. Of course with the large battery comes the trade off of weight, it is heavy but I would expect that with amount of battery it has. In terms of speed I have gotten to 21/mph on level 2, thats max speed for me, but suspect it has more to get up into the high 20's on the highest setting. As several reviewers have posted make sure you tighten the bushings down as far as you can, the double king pin trucks are extremely responsive and can feel a little out of control until you tighten them down completely and then it felt great, you make can super tight turns even with them tightend down. lastly I love the remote, feels good in the hand, just be careful, the speed level adjustment button is on the front so you tap it by mistake if not careful (level1,2,3) Lastly I am curious about the wheels and the ability to change the sleeves on the back, I took off the cover and the it appears that they can be replaced, but not sure if Ownboard has the sleeves available. In summary, I love this board, it fills a really great niche of riding, it is not an off-road board it is more like a semi-off road, for true off road you really need a 6 in+ wheel for that. I love this board alot and cant wait for summer to really go all out. Thanks Ownboard!
Amazing product. I have never had their belted boards, but the hub wheel motors are indestructible and so fast, smooth, and amazing. I have ridden in rain and wet. Once it got very wet and started flashing but as soon as it dried out, operation went back to normal. Amazing product. I am heavy and ride up hills etc. Can't believe these are under 500$. Crazy. This should be an 1,800$ product.
This is a problem then. I have not received any such skateboard. Please call me or let me know where you sent it. I have sent 3 emails to you guys asking where is my skateboard. Would like to know what address you sent it to and when it was sent. My number is 720 329 5858. Please respond to me

I ordered my Carbon right after reading this: https://indexskateboarding.com/ownboard-carbon-electric-skateboard-review - Ownboard Carbon with Pneumatic Tires Review on Index Skateboarding. Zero regrets! I was considering the wowgo AT2 as well, but since the Ownboard is faster and lighter, and I'm an experienced snowboarder, so this seemed like a better choice for me.
The board is great, so fast and powerful. It makes my daily commute through traffic so much more of a pleasure - and it's much faster than when I drive my car. I live on quite a steep hill too - not too dissimilar to those ones in San Fran - and the board has no issues getting up it on my ride back home. Going down in the mornings can be a bit scary though and I need to make sure the battery isn't fully charged when I do ride straight down so the regenerative braking doesn't burn out the battery by over-charging it.
One of my friend's has an Evolve and this board is faster and better up hills! He hates that I can beat him with a board half the price. I think he'll make the switch to an Ownboard later on once their new model AT comes out later this year or next. The only issue with the board is the bushings came a bit loose, I'm fairly light compared to the average AT rider, so I needed to tighten them right up before it felt stable enough for me to ride.
Apart from that the brakes are great, power is awesome, it's heavy - but still possible to carry for short distances or drag around on two wheels - stairs are tough though, but yeah overall 5 stars for sure. You won't regret dropping $1k on this, well worth ever cent.
Great customer support so far. Used express shipping, I emailed Ownboard to figure out when the board would arrive. I got an instant reply. This board is not a toy, its exceeded my expectations so far, I've had it for a month now. The board is fast and the range has been awesome. Comes with extra screws and tools. The bigger wheels handle sidewalk cracks and pine needles with ease. I'm 230lbs and it has no problem accelerating up hill with me on it. Very pleased.
I was shocked at how well the acceleration and braking is. It rides very smooth and the battery last a long time for me.
High tourqe for sure (dont try to ride full gas after brakes because youre going to fly) but little bit low speed but good for small builds and overall
I never received it. How can I track the order

Got this for my husband for Christmas and he is riding it all around town now. He is amazed with how fast it is and how powerful it is. All his friends want one now!
Belts are amazing quality and it’s super worth it since you get 4.
