NGV’s NEXTBoard is literally one of the most historic electric longboards to date. In 2016, Mischo Erban, broke the Guinness World Record for fastest speed on an electric skateboard riding one of these beasts. The board was so fast that it dislodged the wheels right off of the trucks on some of the earlier runs at the ridiculous speeds it was hitting. This board is one of the few out there that is specifically built for speed. From top to bottom.
The lightweight carbon fiber deck. The 4 powerhouse in-wheel motors. 45mm wheels that keep the board firmly planted on the ground. It’s all fine-tuned for one thing: To give you the ride of your life.
If you’re serious about having the fastest electric skateboard around – then you’re crazy, but you’ve found it. Have fun.
Enertion Raptor 2
Not going to lie. Enertion has a special place in our hearts when it comes to raw power.
These guys have build an incredibly high-quality board that they completely stand behind with a ridiculous 110% Guarantee which is pretty much unheard of in this industry. While it may not be as fast as the NEXTBoard (no other eboard is), the Raptor still blows the rest of the competition out of the water.
With their top-notch customer service, high-grade materials and build quality, and insatiable desire to build the most powerful board ever – Enertion has become a fan favorite for many longboarding enthusiasts. This is one you can’t go wrong with.
Evolve Bamboo GTX
If you’re familiar with the electric skateboard scene, then you know Evolve is known for producing some of the highest quality eboards around. The GTX being their highest tier offering.
The board comes in both a bamboo edition and carbon fiber. With the differences pretty much being limited to aesthetics. Which is exactly why we have the bamboo version on this list.
It packs the same bite that it’s carbon fiber counter-part does, with a significant lower price tag. Boasting a solid top speed of 26mph makes this board one of the best in class when it comes to speed. But what really gives it that extra kick is the kickass torque.
This is definitely a board you want to be careful with or it will put you on your ass.
No, this isn’t a typo. We decided to include both the GTX and the GT on the list of fastest electric skateboards on purpose.
Even though they both have the exact same top speed of 26 mph, these boards are completely different rides. While the GTX offers a torquier, more aggressive acceleration. The GT is more subtle in it’s tenacity.
By no means is it a weak eboard, however. You’ll be sure to leave everyone else in the dust just the same, it’ll just be a much smoother experience with a less guilty conscience than if you had spent $300 more for essentially the same board.
The Skatebolt Tornado is by far the lowest priced board on this list. Which plays a large part on why it’s on this list at all.
At less than a third of the price of some of the other electric skateboards on the list, this little monster still packs a serious punch. Pretty much everything about the Tornado is sold. Which makes the 25mph top speed at a $539 price tag almost too good to be true.
