Riptide R1 ELITE [Compact Electric Skateboard]

Author: A76 via YouTube

Commuting and moving around with the RipTide R1 over the last couple of weeks was super convenient with it’s 31″ deck and side handles. Having a much smaller footprint and a kick tail makes the RipTide R1 agile in tighter spots (even a skatepark). Range wise the RipTide seemed pretty close to what I get on my Boosted v2.


Here are some production updates from RipTide:

Improvements to the deck include:
– Addition of concave
– Slightly longer tale

Production hand controller will include:
– 3 speed modes (This Pre-production only has 2)

Production units will have a much stronger injection molded battery box.

Implemented downhill braking on a full charge!
