This board has a lot of power and is an ideal board for high speeds and steep uphill commutes. Don’t worry about traffic jams, the 38 inch V2 is the perfect short distance commuter. V2 motor urethane sleeves are NOT replaceable, however they are very durable.V2 motors are our most powerful motors yet. (More powerful than the 97mm motors on the V2 Plus)This board features the latest version of the Meepo ESC(a significantly improved riding experience, and our best edition yet!)An important upgrade on the Meepo ESC software was applied at the end of August.       

Acceleration with the new ESC is now as smooth and powerful as ever. Braking experience is also greatly improved. 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 our boards is now even shorter. Meepo Board motors need at least 24 Amps of continuous current for peak performance.Samsung 20R (4Ah) batteries can provide 44 Amps of continuous current. Meepo uses the most popular ESC in the electric skateboard industry, which also happens to be our favorite option after trying the many different ESCs out there. The ESC 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.

The Ownboard W2 is characterized by its low price and still impressive properties. It comes with a Hobbywing ESC, which many other eBoards as Wowgo and Backfire also use. This ESC is special because it allows the eBoard to accelerate and brake more smoothly and ensures better control which has been mentioned  above. The quite powerful engines of Ownboards W2 are the most significant change compared to the previous model (W1S). With the double belt drive the W2 eBoard can reach a maximum speed of up to 42km/h (26MPH). The acceleration is slightly slower than in the comparable Boosted Board but the maximum speed of Onboard's W2 is higher and brings with it the Boosted Board quickly back on. Given the price difference from Ownboard W2 Boosted Stealth this is more than a fair compromise.       

In addition, the Ownboard has W2 sufficient torque to even gradients of up to 30% to cope with. At a belt driven electric skateboard, the motors are mounted outside and transfer the power through belts and gears to the wheels. Thereby, the electric board has more torque with better transmission ratio with the same power. In addition, solid rubber wheels will be used, which allows for better absorption of shocks. Another advantage resides in the interchangeability of the rollers, whereby different role types and sizes may be used. A maximum range of up to 25 km is ensured by the large lithium-ion battery with Samsung cells. It was not saved at the wrong point, because the use of high-quality battery cells with counts among the most important criteria to determine the quality of an electric skateboard.
