Teamgee H8 has a good looking and different design than the original one. Overall everything the deck it feels super premium and the trucks everything looks cool.The charger is pretty small front like for an electric skateboard. It’s way more silent and it’s really nice because people might not even recognize that you are even riding an electric skateboard. When riding it the acceleration is super smooth and really nice so that is a good thing and it rides really nicely. When riding the board’s acceleration is super nice and comfortable in the beginner and pro mode both are working really well. This is super good and gives you a comfortable ride so you don’t have to think about falling off the board or anything when accelerating. Through the hand through trucks on the board and also no spaces the sport is super low to the ground and with the nice trucks this has a super nice handling ache and you can turn easily which I really like it also stays very stable at high speeds even if you have trucks very loose this is good and a little different to the boosters briquette board because that one gets unstable a little faster.
