    Fastest and Easiest way to get around a city!

    I could go on and on about the perks of having a vehicle like this, able to effortlessly get anywhere with no concern about time or renting hassles. It simply is a huge relief for stressful city life. What you probably want to know though are a few things: A, Fast? Yes, and will not slow you down or cap your speed unless you WANT it to (holding speed to max throttle downhill will act as a cruise controller to maintain speed.) TLDR: Yes, as fast as anyone needs or should go. B. Uphill? I live in Seattle and the hills are comparable to San Francisico at parts, and it handles them not only with easy, but almost too easily. Thing is powerful beyond any sort of doubt I might have. If there is a hill it won't climb, it'd be either because It's low battery or I can't stand at that angle. Granted, I used to skate when I was younger, but I haven't for quite a long time at this point. TLDR: Yes, better than any I've tried for comparison. C. Custom Support? I can't say enough about this company. I had an issue and within a day had not only support, but a long 1 hour walkthrough on troubleshooting my board. I believe something happened on my end, or there was a slight misalignment that had occurred, and not only did they do everything in their power to help me, it went beyond any sort of service I've ever received before. I don't get too sappy about good service as I feel it should b e given throughout any industry, but this sort of service goes beyond anything you will expect. That, and this coming from a board manufacturer, who is US based, small family oriented company focused on bringing cheaper alternatives for progressing the future of our lives in a positive manner. I not only got the service, but a brand new board shipped to me, all out of their kindness, and also with a 120-day warranty I should add. That's not common for mostr electric skateboards, and especially not for dual motor, quality made, fast and visually appealing products in this sector. TLDR: The best around, hands down. Beyond Apple Care, Amazon or any other tier 1 service team. Can't speak higher of any other experience. Your search is over people, get it when you can because they go quick. Great purchase, will never forget my service and my gratitude and loyalty will never waiver because of it. Thanks Liftboard, You have helped me ensure a more efficient, economincal and eco-friendly transportation medium. Furthermore, you've improved my overall quality of life with the time and stress relief you and your product have provided. Not many can claim to provide that, and it won't go unnoticed. Thanks, Lifted

    Great start, bad finish

    This board is no longer being made by the liftboard company; which tells you a lot already. The connections between the speed controller and the motors are not connected well and after about a week of riding you might find that they don't always connect unless you're going over a smooth surface such as freshly paved roads. If you're going over a regular Road in good condition overtime the soldering will deteriorate and one or both of your Motors will stop powering up or will create a short that will lead to nice scar on your arm so wear long sleeves and pads. In two and a half months I went through returning two boards and on my third one noticed 1 of my Motors starting to disconnect yet again thankfully I was within 15 days of my last return and was able to get my full purchase back. No thank you to liftboard instead thank you Best Buy however maybe you should take this off of your shelves and online store for its unreliability. If you try to fix this yourself you have to rip up the grip tape to remove the trucks to get to the screws that lead to the motor controller. Best save your money or Finance for the good boards like boosted or evolve.

    Best Value powered longboard

    I have been researching powered skateboards for several months, looking for the best bang for the buck and decided to take a chance on the Liftboard. The specs rivaled that of the way-more-expensive Boosted board. I was pleasantly surprised that the actual performance exceeded the company-stated specs. I was able to get a max 20 MPH speed and was able to go up 30% grade hills with ease. (I am 210 lbs) The board probably has upgraded parts because it looks different than what's on the website. (better belt drive protection and bigger wheels-- this probably added to the top speed) I have not tested the battery capacity, but I have not yet run out of power on a ride so far. (max dist 6 mi on hilly terrain) Controller feels cheap but is very responsive (acceleration is smooth and braking is very strong) I've gone only 12 mi so far, but felt strong enough to decide on keeping the board, also purchased the 2 year replacement warranty just in case. Highly recommend!!

    Great Board For a Week

    I ordered my liftboard dual a few months ago and initially loved. It was my first electric board and I thought it was great. However, in less than a month I already had issues with it. I reached out to customer service, and this was not easy. I had to go onto Reddit and find personal contact info for a customer service rep because I got no replies from the customer service on their website. They sent me over some replacement parts for free but within a month, one of my motors broke entirely. Without the warranty I bought from Best Buy I would have been out of out of luck. I ordered a new one under the warranty and I've had it for less than a week and I'm already having problems with it. I understand that all boards require maintenance but I shouldn't have to service my board after every single one of my short commutes. It's an okay board and it's cheap compared to others, but it's not built to last. Save your money and buy the boosted. If you must buy this board, make sure you buy the warranty. You'll surely need it.

    For the money <$500 this board was great (if it lasted)... the throttle is a little touchy, it's either on or off, not really too much in between. But the board stopped working within 30 days, at first the belts started slipping and then would no longer charge. And the company Lift did not respond to my inquiry for 10 days on what to do as far as warranty. I gave up and returned the item to best buy not functioning For reference I'm 155 lbs 5'8" and I rode the board about 3 times per week maybe 2 miles or so in total. I never EVER saw the claimed 16 miles of range (even on low/economy mode) but would get between 5 and 7 miles on flat florida roads.

    Great Board, but Frustrated!

    I love this board. Its fast, the quality is great, and its so much freaking fun. My biggest issue is that i bought this NEW a year ago and they ALREADY stopped making the replacement remote for this model, so now i just have a heavy skateboard that i cant ride. In liftboards defense, their response was quick and they were as helpful as they possibly should be....but seriously, how do they not have a replacement part for practically new model? Good product, good company, frustrating situation.

    First of all, the packaging is astonishing. I was kind of hesitant to purchasing since I have skateboarded since I was a teenager but I'm so glad I gave LiftBoard a shot. I recently got a LiftBoard to test it out since the price is a lot better than competitors and it's amazing! I bought the dual motor version and yikes does this thing move fast. I'm excited to use it to travel around campus this upcoming year.

    I own a V1 Boosted Dual+ and this is just as good at literally 1/3rd of the price. I have had the Dual LiftBoard for a month now and the only problems I've had are a loud bearing on the right rear wheel. I hit customer service up and they sent me four new bearings for free without even batting an eye. I wish it was a pound lighter but the built in handle makes carrying it around a breeze. Overall really impressed.

    This is my first electric board and I don't regret it. Great size and awesome dual motors. Has 2 levels for a beginner and advance. I started off with the beginner for the first week and then switched to the advance the second week and haven't turned it off. Never skated in my life and it's pretty easy. For beginners, I would take it easy and practice riding. Turning is probably the hardest part. Loving it

    After limited use one of the motors is not working properly. Contacted the company but since we are 30days over the warranty they will not help us repair the motor. In fact they told me that they are no longer producing the lift board. So sad that the company is not standing behind their product. This board should last longer than 150 days when it was only used 2 hours a week.

    Terrible product. Worked for a week then broke. Feels fast because it's unstable but it's actually slow, loud, and can barely climb hills even with a dual motor setup. Spend the extra money and get a Boosted and if you can't afford that just grab a cheap chinese electric board (which is what this is anyways just rebranded and with worse support).

    I feel this is an excellent choice in this price range. 2 weeks in and entirely satisfied, if your on the fence , get it. Get new bearings and swap the bushings for a smoother turn. This thing feels like carving a snowboard , and scary fast in pro mode and I weigh 200 ponds . Kills most inclines and hills and the huge wheels roll over almost anything

    The dual motor board is fast! I was definitely surprised how great the ride was. The board sits up high, just how I like and it feels really solid. There is no wiggling or flexing like that $1500 overpriced boosted board. The carrying handle is a great feature for handling your board without getting scratched up by the grip tape.

    This electric skateboard had potential, but there were since issues that I couldn't get past. I ended up returning it, because I could never get the board out of reverse. How it even got into reverse is a mystery. But, it did have pretty good power and, in reverse could propel my 200 lbs frame up to 14 mph.

    A third of the price of the boosted. I weight 215lbs and this board is crazy fast and very easy To use. I highly recommend over a hover board. Do have to get used to it even if you normally skate on a long board because like I said it does have power.

    This board is very well made, durable, and fast. The remote is cheap plastic and just is in a much lower league. However, it works fine. No issues with connectivity etc. Just be careful with it and don't drop it. (Weve already replaced it once.) On the upside, to replace the remote is only like 20 bucks

    Just bought this board a day ago and took for a few spins. Overall looks good, but the remote keeps on RED light even after a full charge. So far, meeting my expectations and I recommend it.

    I purchased a dual motor board and this thing is great. Any problems Ive had have been handled by liftboard. The motors have a lot of power and push me well. Im over 200 pounds and live in a hilly area and the board performs well.
