Reviews of the Backfire G3
Rated 4.3 / 5 from 3 Reviews
The board in the middle
Boards at this price segment are usually pretty complete and good overall and the Backfire G3 did live up to its price tag. There is little to dislike about the G3, be it the performance, the ride feels, or the aesthetic. Backfire G3, similar to the G3 Plus, is a comfortable, relaxing ride that maybe isn’t too exciting, but I’m pretty confident that everyone who had tried it if will love it, or will at least like it.

Backfire G3 Electric Skateboard Review 2021: Best High End?
  • - 4.3
The Backfire G3 is no doubt one of the fastest electric skateboards on the market. On top of that, the Backfire is equipped with one of the most stable battery systems, which makes the board extra efficient. Due to its exemplary performance that exceeds expectations, its decent speed, and amazing features, it deserves a 4.3 out of 5 on our stoke meter. We can hardly think of anything bad about this board, except for the absence of a Bluetooth app. Even without the Bluetooth app, however, the R3 remote will have all the controls you need.

Best electric skateboard under $1,000?
  • - 4.3
The Backfire G3 literally shattered all of my expectations in terms of how a hub motor e-longboard could perform. I thought those didn’t have much torque – BS. I thought the ride wouldn’t have been as comfortable as with a belt driven board – BS. And let’s not forget to mention quality. For a budget e-skate, the G3 looks pretty fucking premium to me. The only downside I can mention is the lack of customization that other boards allow for. Backfire’s app just came out but it’s still nowhere near what Exway’s or Meepo’s apps can do.
