By its specs, the Meepo would give customers the range and stability of a longboard and the same riding experience without spending as much as Boosted and Evolve. MEEPO uses the most popular ESC (Electronic Speed Controller)  in the electric skateboard industry, which also happens to be our favorite option after trying the many different ESCs out there. The ESC (Electronic Speed Controller) deactivates acceleration when the battery in remote is critically low. This prevents potential accidents when the remote runs out of power and shuts off mid-ride. Thanks to the new ESC, the max speed can reach 29 mph, and even in high-speed, it could keep sufficient stability and balance to ensure the safety and a good riding experience. MEEPO ESC is proven to be extremely reliable with more than 300,000 units sold. It has also been continuously improving on the design over the last 3 years.

This V2 Electrical skateboard not only features the latest version of the Meepo ESC, but also is famous for its V2 motor, 800W dual motors, which is Meepo’s most powerful motors yet. The V2 motor urethane sleeves are NOT replaceable, because they are very durable.

In addition, there is smart turn-on on the board, and it can turn on automatically when pushed. You can change riding modes on the go without the need to stop the board. And Braking power will gradually increase as the rider moves the throttle wheel, eliminating any jerks or halting from your board. You can feel the smoothness when slowing down, and the total stopping distance of the boards is now even shorter! If the remote is disconnected, Meepo Board will glide, which is safer than automatic braking.
