Electric skateboards are so expensive because they need to be safe and fun. At Meepo Board we believe that electric skateboards can be affordable, which is why we have models for under $300. However, we won't compromise on quality. This is the minimum price that we can charge and still provide you with high quality, durable, fun, and reliable electric skateboards.
If you see a board whose price seems too good to be true, it probably is. An electric skateboard has a deck, usually made from Canadian maple, fiberglass, or bamboo or a combination of them. Using a plain plastic deck won't give you the kind of flex a more expensive deck will provide. The motor(s) on the board give it power - there's not much wiggle room when it comes to price per power. Power costs more and we want our boards to have enough power to be fun. Finally, we use components tested and 100% approved for use with Meepo Board electric skateboards. Less expensive boards might have a hard time keeping up with our quality and testing standards. In addition, we offer free shipping which is a big expense that is reflected in the sales price.
