We loved Boosted Boards here at How To Kill An Hour, if you remembered our review of the original city slicker. If you didn’t here’s our run down of what we loved about that amazing board. We even did a little test to see how far it can go on one full charge. However, that board has now been superseded by a new line up of urban travelling personal vehicles. In today’s review, we’re taking the grand daddy of them all, the top of the line, the king of the ring, the Boosted Stealth!
It looks as good as it sounds too:
It’s really fast and even though a 2mph increase in speed doesn’t feel like a lot. Especially for those that drive 2mph is nothing.
However, when it is just you and the board and the open road. Boy oh boy, 2mph is HUGE! The top speed is only eligible for those that use the ‘hyper’ speed mode on the board. We advise riders to get used to all the other modes first before they go IN! As electric skateboards do take some getting used to. It’s not a case of getting on and pushing go! You need to practice!
