Top 5 Cheapest Electric Skateboards on Sale in 2016

As the hoverboard became old fashioned, the electric skateboard came in to pick up the slack. The world is moving toward personal mobility, and that means now you have more options than ever before to take your personal transportation device with you. Less unwieldy than bicycles, electric skateboards have the potential to change the way people commute. Electric gadgets can be carried anywhere, including the metro (underground), buses, trains or on airplanes – allowing people to stop and go as they please (and easily hop off to bypass obstacles like stairs). A wireless, handheld remote control or a mobile app allows the skateboarder to control various settings, the most important of which are speed and brakes, so all the rider has to do is focus on balancing the board and avoiding barriers.

With the high price tag, most electric skateboards owners are celebrities or people with deep pockets. Rappers seem to love using them and they may even need to create an electric skateboard lane in Los Angeles. Therefore “cheap” is no longer a dirty word when it comes to electric skateboards. Everyone knows electric skateboards are cool and trending, but not everyone can afford them. Although Boosted Board may come to mind first, there are many less-expensive electric skateboards out there.
