When companies use the term A.I. I have a tendency to immediately roll my eyes in annoyance. Mainly because the word gets thrown around everywhere which way these days as a marketing tactic to the point that the term itself has become quite meaningless.
And while Swagtron is definitely not using the term A.I. in it’s intended form either, I have to give them a pass because they’ve at least tried doing some actual innovation.
For under $300 you can get an electronic penny board with posture control. Something that’s not only practically nonexistent in the eskating world, but also hikes the price up to well over $1k to the skateboards that implement it.
In other words, the Swagskate allows you to control the trajectory of the board simply by leaning your body and weight in the direction you want to go.
Making for a much smoother and intuitive ride when you get the hang of it. Well done Swagtron. We’re impressed.

The Blitzart Huracane is a full length electric longboard built on a budget. A well balanced budget, but a budget nonetheless.
With a max speed of 17 mph and a riding range under 10 miles it fits perfectly under that $300 range.
If you like the style of this board but are looking for something with a bit more power behind it then the upgraded Huracane GT could be right up your alley instead.
But if you’re OK with having the budget option of the two focused more on practicality than extra frills, then the standard Huracane is for you.
– Can be kick pushed
– 3 month limited warranty for manufacturing defects
Yeeplay claims that their M2S electric longboard is the “best and cheapest electric skateboard” and honestly, they might be right.
This is a dangerously (in a good way) powerful board for the price. So much so, that we had a hard time believing that they were able to pack so much hardware into this longboard for such a low price tag.
This might be one of the rare cases that “SALE” prices are actually temporary events. As this thing could easily be sold for the $488 MSRP that’s listed on their website.
My advice: If you like what you see, get it while it’s hot. Cause the price could actually rise at any moment.
– Different battery options for desired range
– 25 mph top speed
– 30% hill grade capability
– 4 riding modes
– Lock function which works like a parking gear
It’s a little crazy how the $300 range skateboards have less range on average than the $200 ones but here we are.
The Atom H4 is very much a penny board designed for portability above everything else. It’s super nimble and a hell of a lot of fun but in short bursts. Please keep that in mind while making any purchase decisions.
This board is meant for short riding sessions and nothing else. Not for commuting across town… Unless you want to get some exercise after half way mark.
Still, for a budget board – Atom knows how to deliver quality.
– 2 speed modes
– can be kick pushed
– extremely portable
– Only really suitable for short commutes and riding sessions
