      Received board yesterday and it blew my son and myself away! Awesome tech and well made. Wish the hand controller had a lanyard or an attachment point for one. Exceeded all expectations and was definitely worth the wait. Thanks!!

      So much fun! Thank you. It was a long wait but well worth it. Who needs snow in Tahoe when I have this for the streets of SF!

      There are a small number of boards with an orange LED on it. Red means charging, Orange is fully charged or "On" and ready to ride. Most of the boards now have a green LED for "On" and charging to make it clearer. Nothing else is different, just the colors.

      Wow just got my board- luv it. I couldn't quite get up my hill but maybe it's because I didn't charge it yet . Too excited I just wanted to ride.
      I was able to navigate the smaller hills with Sammy power though.
      One thing - if I did need to charge it the battery indicator on the remote may not have given me the correct charge level. It said I was fully boosted- will update this another day with a two hour charge (the charger could use some indicators - the board light was orange.. Not sure what this means).
      I wanted to go through the advanced training but the page doesn't seem to be available yet.
      Still love it so far and Sammy power sure likes the exercise!

      Got my board this morning! It actually beat the email that said it shipped -:] Me and a friend took it out for a spin at lunch and were blown away! So fun. Took it out later in the day and let a few more people ride it and everyone loved it whether they rode it or just watched us. No one was willing to try the fast mode but were amazed at how fast it hauled my 210lbs around the parking lot.

      Creator Andrew Ward on February 26

      Is there a new shipping schedule? Because the update says that 2nd batch backers will receive their board in February and that is about over. Just wanting to know about when I will actually get the board.

      Creator DRAGON on February 24

      I am officially boosted! Woo!!! Thank you Boosted team. Just opening the package I felt a sense of value and quality from the exterior of the box to the product itself. I find myself having to keep calm and regain composure as I indulge in my new toy like a young toddler would, and making sure I follow the directions for safety and product knowledge. Thank you again! I am officially boosted!!!

      We've shipped production units to all beta testers (writing an update on that right now with photos) and some first batch backers, and we have more boards for first batch ready to ship out but waiting a couple more days on a firmware update.

      Through the past year I would get antsy waiting and thinking about the product, but since the announcement of the finished product I've been so excited to receive my board! Keep up the good work guys, and finish strong!

      Got the email and submitted my address but it didn't ask for the flex on the board? Are you guys still asking for that or is it just standard to a flex 2 or 3?

      Creator Boone Brooks on January 20

      hey sanjay, i know back in december you said you would be sending out requests for shipping info from backers. still haven't received an email and wanted to make sure everything was still on track.

      Regardless of the trade-offs one company chooses over those of another, it's good to see more companies getting into electric boards. It will hopefully increase the rate of innovation of the specialized technology needed to make it more widely accepted, and reduce our dependency on traditional modes of transportation which are crowding our cities and choking our air.

      Just got a reply from Sanjay about EU backers, and thought I should relay the info:

      Hi,
      The charger cord is fixed on these first units, so you'll need a plug adapter to charge with 220V EU sockets. The charger itself is 220V compatible, so you'll just need the adapter, not a converter.
      For almost everyone we've recommended the Flex 3 deck. We have some 100kg test riders and they like the Flex 3. Sturdiness is not an issue, as the board has been run over by a car with no issues.
      Thanks for the email. Let me know if you have any questions!

      Cheers,
      Sanjay

      Looks reasonable for long flat straight rides, but too many trade offs for the cheaper price. Less power for inclines, single wheel drive likely resulting in more belt slippage and uneven wear and tear on the motor and mount when carving, loose cable underneath connecting the bulk to the drive, and the bulk of its mass is in the center of the board where the flex of the deck is meant to be. The picture tells more than the spec sheet. I like how Boosted is made by skateboarders who are engineers, not an RC company that may or may not know skateboards.

      Flex 3 is probably your best bet. We'll check with each backer before we ship their board.

    22. Missing_small

      Creator DRAGON on December 22

      I don't recall ever submitting a flex choice, will mine be determined based on the survey sent a year ago? I am a new rider at 185 lbs. and will using it mainly for cruising. So is a flex 3 or getting a 2 and breaking it in work better for me? Thanks guys! Looking forward to getting the board soon!

      @Toby, we're figuring out pickup/shipping right now.

      Can backers who live in San Francisco pick up the board in person? (I'm in the first batch)

      Creator Boosted Boards on October 11, 2013

      Thanks, Martin!

      1. The new batteries weigh slightly more than our old ones since we used a safer battery chemistry and a very rugged battery enclosure. Our current units weigh about 14.5 pounds, but we're still finalizing the weight of a few parts.

      2. Yes, we've been carrying the boards on as hand luggage with no problems at all. It fits great in the overhead bins!

      We've been posting small photos and updates on facebook and twitter so we don't clog up your inboxes, and saving the big stuff for here. Our next update will be on the final beta build, which should be out the door in a couple of weeks.

      Creator Dan McDonley on July 13, 2013

      @Martin Those laws are definitely on the books in CA, but are pretty antiquated. I have been riding the Beta Board since April and put over 300 miles on it. I regularly pass by cops and have never been stopped or had a problem. Stay in the bike lanes and off the sidewalks and you likely won't either. Someone may have to challenge this law at some point but for now it appears unenforced.

      Creator Boosted Boards on July 3, 2013

      @Peter, no worries! Hope you're still as excited as we are about the boards!

      @Dmitry, keeping the weight low is a big priority for us, don't worry!

    43. Missing_small

      Creator Dmitry Chichkov on July 3, 2013

      Thanks for the update! Can't wait for the second butch to be shipped!

      Delays are kinda Ok, but the 'around 13 pound' number ... Uhh... please do you best to keep the original pledge "Imagine 2000 watts (2.6 horsepower) on a 12 lb. longboard.". It's just I already have a hacked version of a super-heavy electric board and at around 10 kilos it is nearly completely useless. My two cents.

      Hi everyone, we just posted a big update on Kickstarter and our blog. Sorry for the delay!

      @Martin, we haven't finalized the weight yet, as we're still waiting on some parts for the battery enclosure and drivetrain. Right now, our beta units are around 13 pounds.

      Creator Joelsoutham on June 30, 2013

      Last update was April 3rd. Possibly time to let all the backers know what's going on? Delays happen and are even welcomed if they result in a superior product, but we would like to know how the issues are being resolved and how the building is coming. An edited video isn't necessary. A simple few paragraph email would easily put my mind at ease. Looking forward to hearing from you.
