BajaBoard Atrax S2 caters to thrill-seekers and electric skateboard veterans looking for a high-performance board that pushes boundaries. Those new to e-skateboards or preferring a leisurely cruise might find its capabilities a bit over-the-top.
Upon unboxing the BajaBoard Atrax S2, I was immediately struck by its robust build. Its sturdy aluminum frame gives off an industrial vibe, signaling that this board is built for serious riders. Assembling the few pieces was straightforward, allowing me to hit the pavement quickly.
Riding the Atrax S2 is like taming a wild stallion – exhilarating yet demanding respect. Sprinting to its 55 km/h top speed feels like breaking free from gravity's clutches, while hill climbs become effortless tasks rather than daunting challenges. The acceleration is punchy, with brakes that inspire confidence; coming to a halt from high speeds feels controlled and safe. With a range of 44 km, daily commutes are not only possible but thrilling.
This board's twin motors are relentless workhorses providing relentless torque. Even in varied scenarios such as steep inclines or rough terrain, they never wavered in performance. The 864 Wh battery stayed true to its promise, consistently delivering near the advertised range before needing a recharge.
Wheels on the Atrax S2 provide commendable traction, enhancing my riding confidence across different surfaces. Despite its aggressive capabilities, comfort isn't compromised; however, staying alert for potential safety issues is key due to the ride's intensity.
Handling this beast feels both raw and refined. In urban settings or off-road adventures, it responds with agility. However, because of its weight and power, riders should anticipate a learning curve before mastering control for comfortable rides across environments.
Maintenance-wise, I appreciated the no-nonsense design which made regular checks and tweaks quite manageable. When I encountered an issue with gear alignment, customer service was responsive and helpful, guiding me through a fix without delay.
Features such as the quality remote control with electric gauges added layers of convenience and control to my rides. Knowing speed and battery levels in real-time allowed for better ride management.
For me, the BajaBoard Atrax S2 earns an impressive 8/10. While it delivers exceptional power and performance that adrenaline junkies will love, its weight and intensity could be overwhelming for some riders.
