To coincide with the launch of their 2nd generation electric skateboard, the guys at Boosted Boards have finally launched international shipping to a select group of destinations (including Australia).
The original Boosted Board is widely regarded as the best electric skateboard on the market, with blistering speed up to 35 km/h, high quality durable parts, and an extended range of up to 11 kilometres. The second generation board looks set to improve on many of the small drawbacks of the first, with swappable batteries (meaning theoretically unlimited range), waterproof components (good for that Melbourne weather), and advanced smartphone connectivity.
All this while keeping the prices exactly the same as the first gen board. You can pre-order the new Boosted Board right now, with international shipping expected to begin in September.
Prices start at US$999 and reach $1,499 for the top of the line Dual+ which by all accounts is money well spent. Be sure to look around for a referral code for $100 off your order.
