Performance

  • Max Speed 28 mph. For an electric skateboard at a $1,200 price point you may be looking for more power but with a board this size its understandable.
  • RangeUp to 16 miles. What many riders forget to take into account is that the riding range varies from the size of the rider. For example , one Munkyboard owner that Is 235 pounds was able to squeeze out exactly 15 miles on a ride down the beach while another much smaller rider was able to get the board closer to a 20 mile ride range.  
  • Power It has a strong 1200W 36V lithium ion battery with a ride time of about 70 minutes. Unfortunately, the sk-1200 is a one wheel drive electric brushless motor but you can really feel the torque underneath you when accelerating.
