I think I have a pretty clear understanding on this subject.
When anyone, including me, first decided to buy a new e-board because we saw a youtube video with some crazy lunatic called Caset Neistat boldly passing all busses in NY, we set the top budget we were willing to spend on an eboard, a hobby that might get old in less than a week, as everything in my sh!tty life.
Having an e-board must be cool
I will save a lot of money in buses, great!
Yeah, but I won’t pay more than 300-600 bucks
Lets google what’s on the market… holy sheet!!! US$ 1499 for a Boosted Board???, nahhhh, these guys are thieves, who the hell will pay so much for a eboard, I guess they will be out of the business soon, as they won’t sell a board ever.
Uhmmm Evolve Stakeboards lets click here, US$ 2159.00 for a AT Carbon?, FML!!!, leeeeets move on…
Lets go to amazon.com, it’s the best online shop ever! Yeah!, Wow a Koowheel for US$ 549.00 uhmm… I could take the plunge here!!!, let see the specs… Holly molly 40km (25 miles) of range, 45Km/Hr (28MPH) max speed, way better than the Inboard M1, this is the perfect board, all those buying 1500-2000 dollars boards don’t know how to perform a great reseach as I do, MORONS!
Well, I know there must be something better on the market but it must be for very demanding people those who want to ride extremely fast and have 80km of range, fortunately I’m not that guy I’m a perfectly average man and the Koowheel is perfect for my budget and outspec any board in its price category, so let’s buy it and post an unboxing video on youtube!!!, I’m awesome!

Hello guys, longtime lurker first time poster:
“Really pissed off. Was really excited to get the board and the battery doesn’t fit properly. the connector between the battery and the board is bent. I tried to fix many times but nothing seems to work. Haven’t even rode this thing once.”
“The motor on one of the wheels failed within a week also also the axle that the wheels are attached to are made out of soft aluminum which then tend to wear out allowing the motorized Wheels to lose power because they’re spinning on the axle causing significant amount of noise and loss of control of the board”
