I’m a 42yo man who just got got the tornado 2 as a gift from my wife. I absolutely love this thing! It lives up to the hype 100%. Climbs the hills here in western Wisconsin carrying me at 185# effortlessly. This is probably the first review I’ve ever written about anything and I’m here to tell you it’s worth every penny so far.
I bought this skateboard for my son after returning a completely different one I bought for him off Amazon. I’m definitely happier I made that choice because the quality of this board outweighs the previous one. This quality of this board is solid and we’ve had no issues since making this purchase!
The board is super cool! I am amazed at how powerful it is - I can easily motor up my driveway which is quite steep. I am still learning how to ride so can't comment yet on how it does at top speed, but so far I am super impressed!
One thing to watch out for: the brakes are very strong and it takes some skill to stay balanced when they engage. If you are careful with the controller you can get the brakes to engage partially.
I've been using the Skatebolt Tornado ll for several weeks now. This is a great board to start out with and I've enjoyed cruising the roads. The battery lasts me several trips and it goes faster than I'm even comfortable doing. My only complaints are 1. The hub wheel tires cannot be upgraded/changed. Some models you can but not this one. 2. The deck does not flex. This, coupled with the thin non-replaceable back tires, make for a bumpy ride. If you're only on smooth roads it wouldn't matter much however. Thanks Skatebolt for a fun product.
This is the best electric longboard I have ever bought. Works perfectly all the time for every ride. Motors are beyond strong. My friend was ride his board and it died so this tornado 2 was able to drive both of us up a hill and flat street for 2 miles back to the car. It easily got 20 miles range for me. I was using the high speed mode. Love the remote with the screen. I already have almost 100 miles on it and it hasn’t been a month yet.
