Product Overview

Electric skateboarding has been on the rise, and the AeBoard Hornet Belt is certainly a standout for those seeking a blend of performance and practicality. Tailored to riders looking for an adrenaline rush without compromising on everyday utility, this board strikes a balance that will appeal to enthusiasts and commuters alike.

Design and Build Quality:

Upon unboxing the AeBoard Hornet Belt, I was immediately struck by its robust build. The deck felt solid underfoot, flexing just enough to assure me of both its strength and comfort. Aesthetically, it's quite pleasing with a minimalist vibe that doesn't try too hard. Assembly wasn't an issue—everything came ready to ride straight out of the box, which was a relief.

Overall Performance:

I put the Hornet Belt through its paces on my daily commute and some joy rides. What can I say? This board is nimble! Zipping through traffic felt exhilarating with a top speed that had me grinning ear to ear. Climbing hills at a 35% grade proved no challenge for the belt drive. Even braking was smooth and responsive, providing confidence in traffic. However, while it claims 15 miles range, my heavier build meant I got closer to 12—something to keep in mind for longer trips.

The Motors & Battery:

The dual belt motors are potent, delivering thrust that pushes the envelope for thrill-seekers but remains manageable for newer riders too. Battery life was respectable; I managed about three full days of commuting before needing a recharge—which aligns with the advertised specs. Charging times were as expected; from empty to full took just under 3.5 hours.

The Wheels & Braking:

Riding comfort hinged greatly on the wheels—which absorbed much of the road's harshness—and the braking system didn't disappoint either. Throughout my rides across town, I felt in control during stops thanks to the regenerative brakes which also helped squeeze out extra battery life.

Overall Handling:

Handling this e-skateboard felt intuitive; carving through bends and navigating sidewalks came with ease. It accommodated different environments well, whether cruising on smooth pavements or tackling rougher pathways.

Maintenance and Repair:

After a week's use, maintenance needed was minimal—a good brush down to keep those belts clean was all it took. In terms of support from AeBoard for parts or repairs—I can't speak from experience—but forums suggest they're fairly responsive with an adequate supply of parts available.

Additional Features:

The remote control feels like an extension of your hand—responsive and ergonomically designed—and electric gauges kept me informed of my stats effectively while riding. Safety features such as lights would have been appreciated though.


My rating stands at a solid 8/10. The balance between speed, handling, and usability makes the AeBoard Hornet Belt an excellent choice within its price range—deducting points only for the slightly optimistic range estimates for heavier riders and lack of lighting.
