Reviewers Love the Riptide

"The R1 is fast out of the gate, with the maneuverability of a standard-size deck. So far, it's come closest to what I've been looking for on all fronts: size, price and power." -Engadget

"When we started our review for the Riptide, we realized right away this electric skateboard was something special." -Digital Trends

"This is a whole different type of skating and its awesome." - ElectricWaveTV


Power is peak power. Downhill braking on a full charge is effective but limited. More questions? Check out our FAQ.
