E-Skateboards 2021 Checklist
- E-skateboards are intended less as a means of transportation and more as recreational fun. This also applies to models for children. Important: E-skateboards for children do not have road approval ex works. The boards can only be used on private property.
- A high-quality e-skateboard does not have to weigh a lot. Modern composites like carbon are lightweight yet sturdy! This lightness enhances mobility: your child can “tuck the board under his or her arms” and climb stairs, for example.
- An e-skateboard should weigh no less than 3 and no more than 6 kilograms. Furthermore, the body weight of your child plays a role. If the e-skateboard is not made for the weight of your child, for example, because your protégé is too old, there is a risk of axle damage.
- Flex is the bending force (flexibility). It is linked to the weight of the rider: the lighter the rider, the higher the theoretical flex. The higher the flex, the more the board bends and the easier it is for the rider to gain momentum. Finally, the knee has to bend less as the distance it travels decreases. However, if the flex is too low, there is also a risk of damage to the axles.
- Last but not least, the weight of the rider affects the rollers. Because they should be absolutely designed for the weight. Moreover, there are different types of rollers, for example for asphalt, clay, or gravel. With an all-round tire, all non-professionals are well-advised.
- More important when choosing tires: the size. Large wheels stand for greater riding comfort, as they cushion bumps more efficiently. But wheels that are too big maximize the amount of effort needed to get out of the way because the tires have to travel a greater distance. We advise you to use tires with a maximum diameter of 70 millimeters!
- An e-skateboard motor can be designed either as a dedicated variant or as a so-called in-wheel motor. The latter form is integrated into the tires and thus reduces the weight of the board. However, changing the tire is more complicated than with a dedicated motor. In this form, the weight increases, but also the energy (the efficiency of battery use).
- So that your child can skate not only quickly, but also for a long time, a battery with a volume of at least 20 volts is recommended. The standard is 24 vol ts and some models have batteries with up to 32 volts. Depending on the volume, the maximum driving fun is between 1 and 3 hours.
- Manufacturers of e-skateboards often supply their speedsters with protective equipment. This is considered an absolute must! However, you should pay attention to the accuracy of fit ! We advise you to purchase protective equipment such as helmets and knee pads separately.

FAQ About E-Skateboards
An e-skateboard is similar in appearance to a conventional skateboard. The difference here is that the e-skateboard is powered by a rechargeable battery, which must be regularly recharged from the wall socket.
An e-skateboard can cost between 100 and 1000 euros. However, it makes sense to invest in a high-quality model so that you can enjoy it for a long time.
E-skateboards are often made of carbon, as this material is not too heavy and your child can therefore transport it well. It is also very robust and resilient.
An e-skateboard should not weigh more than 6 kg. But the weight of your child is also crucial. If it is too heavy for the skateboard, damage is usually the result. The flex is also influenced by the weight of your child. If the rider is very light, the flex is also very high. The rider can more easily get momentum and thus achieve optimal speed.
To ensure that you always ride safely and prevent injuries, you should look for good protective clothing. Especially at the beginning you are probably still very insecure on the board, which is why the purchase of knee pads or a helmet can be quite useful.
The e-skateboard is powered by a battery, which should be as powerful as possible. Therefore, it should have a volume of at least 24 volts. Then you can usually drive about 3 hours a, piece with the e-skateboard through the area. In addition, you can choose between a dedicated and an in-wheel motor. The latter does not add too much weight, but makes changing tires more difficult. The dedicated motor, on the other hand, is a lot heavier. However, you have to decide for yourself which one you like more.
With such a skateboard, you are only allowed to ride on private property or specially designated areas without a road permit. If you disobey this rule and get caught, you will be fined.
A skateboard is not considered a vehicle under the Highway Code. Instead, it is a means of transportation that is subject to the same legal laws as, for example, a wheelchair.
The wheels should be adjusted to your weight. In addition, there are wheels that are suitable for different surfaces. Therefore, consider before buying whether you want to ride on asphalt or gravel. However, rollers are recommended that are optimally suited for all surfaces. These usually have a diameter of 70 mm.
