Bustin Boards Yoface Sportster Hybrid V3, the latest electric skateboard to hit the streets, is a fantastic fit for urban commuters and thrill-seekers alike. Combining high speeds with a sturdy design, this board caters to those who crave an adrenaline rush or simply want a reliable mode of daily transport. However, it may not be the first pick for someone on a tight budget or new riders due to its powerful performance.
Straight off, you'll notice the Yoface Sportster Hybrid V3's streamlined look with a robust build that inspires confidence during rides. Its deck provides stability and durability while still giving that signature flex for carving. Assembly was straightforward; I was up and rolling in no time.
Performance-wise, this e-skateboard doesn't disappoint. Commuting becomes less of a chore and more of an adventure, reaching top speeds of 48 km/h easily. Uphill climbs? It tackles them with gusto thanks to the hub drive train. Acceleration is snappy, and braking is reassuringly responsive, allowing for quick adjustments in traffic or during high-speed runs.
The Dualomo hubs deliver power silently but forcefully, making city cruising a dream. On flatter terrain, the battery performed admirably close to the advertised specs. Hill climbs saw a dip in battery life – but nothing unexpected. Overall, battery longevity was sufficient for my daily use.
Wheels were grippy enough to instill confidence on various pavements. When it came to stopping power, brakes were effective even at higher speeds – a crucial safety feature that shouldn't be overlooked.
Handling proved nimble around tight corners and crowded paths, though comfort might vary depending on surface conditions due to the stiffness designed for speed stability.
Maintenance was minimal – just some cleaning and tightening here and there. When reaching out to Bustin Boards about a minor issue, response times were swift, and DIY repair guides were clear. Spare parts weren't difficult to source either.
Its quality remote control became second nature quickly with its intuitive design, while electric gauges kept me well-informed of my riding stats – adding layers of convenience to my experience.
I'd rate the Yoface Sportster Hybrid V3 an impressive 8/10. It lost points mainly due to the slight discomfort over rough terrain and the learning curve for beginners, but it's a powerhouse where it counts.
