The Wheels and Trucks

The polyurethane wheels measure 90 mm and provide traction on a variety of surfaces. They are connected to the deck by adjustable high-grade alloy trucks.

The Battery

The multi-cell battery is located on the underside of the deck. On top of that, it has a flexible battery casing that allows the deck to bend while riding.

Speed Modes

There is an 8-mph slow mode for beginners and a 12.5-mph one for adrenaline lovers.

Riding Modes

The Eco Mode has a lower acceleration curve that uses less battery power and provides a longer range. As for the Sport Mode, it offers a higher acceleration curve but consumes more power.

Yuneec E Go2 Electric Skateboard Pros:

  • The E-Go2 is lightweight and portable, making it easy to carry on public transportation and around campus.
  • This model is very affordable.
  • The 18-mile range is more than twice the range of some of the more expensive electric skateboards. Such a range of the Yuneec E Go2 Electric Skateboard allows you to travel all over town without having to recharge the battery. This is something that is not possible with the famous Boosted Board.
  • The regenerative braking system stores energy while you are braking to recharge the battery. When using an electric skateboard in the city, you are always starting and stopping due to traffic or pedestrians. Each time you accelerate, you use more power and that power is lost when you brake. However, Yuneec’s battery technology employs the same concept that is used in electric cars and trains to recharge the battery when braking.

Yuneec E Go2 Electric Skateboard Cons:

  • The E Go2’s 400-watt motor is smaller than more expensive electric skateboards. This can make Yuneec E Go2 Electric Skateboard feel sluggish and cause it to struggle when going up steep hills. It is not as fast as some of the other electric skateboards. Many users felt that the lack of speed takes away from the thrill of skating.
  • Although the E Go2 model has a longer range than other electric skateboards, the battery charging time is also longer. Therefore, you cannot swap the battery like you can on the Inboard M1.
  • As for its remote control, it is less responsive than other electric skateboards. As a result, Yuneec didn’t create a product as comfortable as the rounded Boosted Board remote.

The Yuneec E Go2 Electric Skateboard Is Best for:

  • The E Go2 is recommended for riders 14 years and older with a body weight under 220 pounds.
  • The lightweight design of the Yuneec E Go2 Electric Skateboard makes it a good option for riders who use an electric skateboard for utility purposes. Therefore, this is a good model for running errands or visiting friends and for riders who also utilize public transportation.
  • The shape of the deck and the kicktail make the E Go2 ideal for riders who use an electric skateboard as part of their daily commute. On top of that, the kicktail gives the rider better steering and control.
  • The E Go2 is also ideal for riders who like to carve.
