Product Overview

Cruising through the city streets and carving up local skate parks, the Ampd Bros Vortex Carbon Pro has been a trusty companion this past week. Adrenaline junkies and speed enthusiasts will find solace in its robust build and vigorous performance, while casual riders might find its power a bit overwhelming. Beginners should practice caution, as this board packs a punch designed to satisfy thrill-seekers.

Design and Build Quality:

From the moment you lay eyes on Vortex Carbon Pro, its sleek carbon fiber deck commands attention. Lightweight yet durable, this e-skateboard feels both futuristic and solid underfoot. Every design element screams premium, from the refined grip tape pattern to the sturdy trucks that promise longevity. Assembly wasn't an issue; it was ready to roll right out of the box.

Overall Performance:

Powering down boulevards at a top speed of 42 km/h was nothing short of exhilarating. The board's acceleration is responsive, allowing for quick getaways at traffic lights. Hill climbs? Handled with ease, proving that steep inclines are no match for its dual motors. Braking is equally impressive—smooth and reliable even when descending rapidly.

The Motors & Battery:

Dual 1600 W motors didn't just provide stellar hill-climbing capabilities; they also ensured that acceleration was brisk and consistent. Battery life lived up to expectations as well; multiple commutes and joyrides later, I only needed to charge every couple of days. Even when testing its limits on long rides or uphill challenges, power delivery remained steadfast.

The Wheels & Braking:

Rolling on 97 mm wheels meant cruising over small pebbles and cracks was a breeze. However, I did yearn for slightly larger wheels to tackle those more formidable obstacles. Braking instilled confidence with its predictability—essential for navigating crowded urban environments safely.

Overall Handling:

Maneuvering through winding paths in the park showcased the board's agility. The stiff deck allowed for precise control which is vital during high-speed carving sessions but did impact overall ride comfort during longer journeys.

Maintenance and Repair:

Thankfully, maintenance has been minimal thus far. The board seems engineered to withstand regular use without frequent need for tweaks or repairs. Availability of parts hasn't been an issue either; everything seems readily available should the need arise.

Additional Features:

A quality remote control complements the board perfectly—ergonomic and intuitive. While electric gauges keep you informed on-the-fly, there wasn't much else in terms of bells and whistles—which isn't necessarily a bad thing considering the board's focus on performance.


Taking into account design, performance, battery life, and handling, I'd rate the Ampd Bros Vortex Carbon Pro at a solid 8/10. A point was deducted for comfort over longer rides and another for being slightly intimidating for new riders.
