    Easy to Learn Fun to Ride

    The Boosted Mini X electric skateboard is an amazing piece of hardware. As a former avid skateboarder, I took to riding the Mini X easily as it is very similar to riding a normal short skateboard just much heavier. You can easily push down the tail to adjust left and right but any ollie tricks would not be possible because again this board is very heavy at about 16lbs. Fast enough, great battery life, good torque for uphill climbs, great braking for smooth stopping power, and good feel riding and controlling. Super expensive, but when you don’t want to risk the problems with the many cheaper options, I would absolutely spend more to buy Boosted.

    I was on the fence about this or the bigger boosted board. Went small to allow for travel, but so far was denied on a Delta flight due to their battery policy. The board itself is solid and well planted. Was afraid it might get squirrelly at high speeds buts it remains planted and stays on track. The power takes a bit to get the hang of as it is really torquey on acceleration. Braking is smooth and controlled, and going in reverse is also possible which always turns heads on the street. Wear a helmet and try to relax your smile from time to time. Your cheeks will hurt from grinning so much.

    I bought the Boosted Mini X for getting around at work because sometimes the jobsite where I'm working is a couple of blocks from the parking lot where my vehicle is parked. So it's a great time and energy saver while being fun. At one location it takes eight minutes to walk from the control room to my truck, but with the Mini-X, it takes less than three minutes. So, with the number of times that I have to get more equipment from my truck in a day, the Mini-X can save me between 30 to 60 minutes, which equates to getting more done with less stress.

    The Mini X has a ridiculous amount of power; so much so that the board will wheelie if you're not leaning forward on the board when you accelerate! I have owned multiple versions of their boards over the years, and the products just keep getting better and better. Boosted truly delivers a Tesla-level of exhilaration and reliability, and the cost is quickly justified once you ride one of their boards for the first time. I use my MiniX for fun with the kids, business trips, daily commuting, carrying groceries and boxes from my carport to my apartment, and more!

    Got this a couple weeks ago. So far have put over 50 miles on it and love it. The braking is superb. Helps to loosen up the tricks a bit, but the board sells with a skate tool in the box. It’s heavy, but you get used to it and the small size is easy to take with you wherever you are headed. Charges very quickly. The large battery hangs a bit low, and the deck is stiff, so large bumps are best avoided, but I have no problem riding it around Westwood

    Great Short-board

    The boosted Mini-X is a great board for short commutes. But the deck has no flex at all so you feel every bit of the road. If your commuting across smooth surfaces, it's fantastic. The board also has tons of torque, and jumps happily to 22ish MPH (with a 230lbs rider). The board also has lots of stopping power, but you have to be careful not to throw yourself off accelerating or breaking. All in all, it's a great board and the range is amazing for something so small.

    Two weeks later I have wear on the motor shaft. Should have done my research it’s common. Board sounds like a lawn mower. My evolve is silent and months old. It has its problems but a motor shalf is crazy this early. I know to take it easy on acceleration and hills(stress).

    Only giving it 4 stars cause I just bought an upgrade that truly deserves the 5. But this is a great board nonetheless for short commutes to work or just for fun. Saving me a fair amount of money on gas as well

    This is expensive but worth it. It is very well built and too much fun. The only bad thing is its weight but it was too light and cheap it would not be good.

    Same great range as my V2 Plus XR in a smaller size. More maneuverable than the longboard, but a slightly harsher ride due to not having the flex of the longboard.

    This is a good point A to point B, quick errands board. Easier to carry than the longboards and my power and battery than the Mini S.

    I love using this to go to the gym as it fits perfectly inside the locker. The size makes carrying it with one arm really easy.

    Almost too powerfull. Can climb up hills with ease. You should have experience skateboarding before using.
