Boosted Unveils Four New Electric Boards To Make Getting Around Simple and Fun

Boosted, the leading ultra-light electric vehicle company providing fun, fast, and simple transportation for everyone, today announced the introduction of four new electric boards: Boosted Mini S, Boosted Mini X, Boosted Plus, and Boosted Stealth. The boards feature Boosted’s hallmark performance, safety, and vehicle-grade quality while offering increased durability and a smoother ride to meet the demands of daily transportation on an electric board. The brand’s first short board, Boosted Mini, provides riders with even more portability at a significantly lower price point.

“We’re focused on providing people with a more fun, efficient way to get around that truly fits into the reality of today’s multi-modal transportation needs - a ride that is instantly available, requires no parking or storage, cuts through traffic, and that you can take on a train or bus and throw in the trunk of a car for a longer trip,” said Jeff Russakow, Boosted CEO. “Informed by data and feedback gathered across more than 10 million miles logged by our rider community, our new boards take Boosted’s core performance and vehicle-grade reliability up yet another notch with a more refined ride feel, enhanced maneuverability, increased range, and greater price accessibility.”

With Boosted’s third generation of boards, the company has taken the deck, truck, and wheel design in-house and custom engineered these critical components from the ground up to further optimize for the higher demands of electric vehicles. The new decks utilize advanced technologies from snowboard manufacturing to achieve greater stability, more responsive turning, and greater vibration absorption than ever. Polymer sidewalls wrap the boards for enhanced durability, all while retaining the flex and deep carving capabilities Boosted riders love. The custom-designed wheels are optimized for electric skateboarding with a smoother ride and increased carving traction, while the drivetrain has been updated with CNC precision machined trucks to provide increased strength where riders need it most.

New Boosted Boards

  • Boosted Mini ($749 S | $999 X) is the stash-and-go Boosted experience riders have been waiting for, designed with ultimate portability in mind. At only 29.5 inches long, the short board is the perfect commuter companion, delivering the same powerful acceleration and smooth, secure braking expected from Boosted, with ride modes and acceleration patterns designed to suit the board’s compact profile. The board’s kicktail design allows for quick pivoting and “floating” over road imperfections, while the wide, stable platform features a Deep Dish concave shape for control. Boosted Mini S provides a top speed of 18 mph and allows for up to a seven mile ride on a single charge, while Boosted Mini X has a top speed of 20 mph and offers up to 14 miles of range.
  • Boosted Plus ($1,399) is the updated classic electric longboard Boosted riders have come to know and love, specifically designed for the greater speed, distance, and durability of electric longboarding using data gathered from years of rider feedback and in-house R&D. A wider deck provides increased stability and better response, including extra turning power. With a top speed of 22 mph, the board is equipped with the extended range battery, providing up to 14 miles of range, perfect for longer trips and epic rides.
  • Boosted Stealth ($1,599) is Boosted’s highest-performance longboard yet. With a higher top speed and lightning-fast acceleration, it’s the ultimate getaway vehicle. Boosted Stealth is the brand’s fastest board, with a new fifth ride mode topping out at 24 mph, and the increased stability and response that comes with a wider deck. The Boosted Stealth comes standard with an extended range battery for up to 14 miles on a single charge.

The new Boosted boards are available to purchase today at BoostedBoards.com and will begin shipping in May 2018. See the new boards in action on Boosted’s YouTube channel.

It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...
