Anyone have any experience with any of these? Looking at the Boosted board and the evolve bamboo GT. The Boosted looks more friendly but I like the range on the Evolve. Top speed in the mid 20's works for me. Any other opinions on brands?

I've ridden mutiple and own a Koowheel. I also have a Backfire II Galaxy on order and it should be here next week.

Of the boards i've ridden..(boosted dual v2, koowheel, action blink, yuneec ego 2 and meepo) The boosted is by far the best board overall hands down. Great acceleration,, good brakes and gets me as far as i need to go.. i take like 6 mile trips daily.

For the Money/Value I love my Koowheel. There are lot of reviews saying they have connection issues but I've yet to experience this. It's faster (top speed) and has a longer range then the boosted dual. The BIG BIG downside to the koowheel is the battery management system it has built in. It cuts the power of the board in 1/2 once the battery reaches 50% so max speed at that point is like 8mph or some BS. Which is usually fine for me since I'm done with my trip by the time that happens and I just charge the battery back to 100.

The backfire II is supposed to be really really good so im excited for that to come in. I'll let you know what I think once that comes in.

Actually headed to the post office on my board now.. holla!

The backfire is awesome so far. They originally had an issue with unbalanced wheels causing some serious vibration at speed. But they have solved that and sent out new wheels to the people with the issue. They just strated an indiegogo campaign to help fund getting the boards shipped over quicker. So it's back at $399 which is an amazing deal.

I did however change out the bearings and the bushings for an overall better board. The stock bushings are hard as hell and make the board impossible to turn. The stock bearings were also soso..

That inboard should have just gotten an update that made the board quicker and get better distance. Just the price of the inboard isn't my cup of tea.. much better boards for less on the market right now..
