Island All Terrain is a beast of an electric skateboard that'll spark the interest of thrill-seekers and commuting enthusiasts alike. It's crafted for riders craving power and performance without breaking the bank. While ideal for those ready to tackle steep hills and demanding cityscapes, its heaviness and battery life might give lighter riders or long-distance commuters pause.
At first glance, the Island All Terrain radiates a robust vibe with its solid structure. This e-skateboard features an alluring blend of practical design elements and durable materials, making it a trusty ride on rough terrains. Assembly, thankfully, wasn't a puzzle - pretty straightforward with clear instructions.
This board didn't disappoint when put through its paces. Whether it was breezing through city streets or conquering hilly challenges, performance remained top-notch. The exhilarating top speed of 35 km/h felt like a rush of adrenaline, while the brakes instilled confidence with their smooth progression from glide to complete halt.
Dual 1000W motors deliver a punchy acceleration that can catch you off guard if you're not prepared. Uphill battles felt effortless, thanks to this power. The battery's longevity was slightly underwhelming for my weight class (180lbs), necessitating more frequent charges than lighter riders might need.
With 90mm wheels devouring rough patches on roads like a hungry beast, stability at high speeds came easily. Brakes deserve applause; they provide peace of mind with their predictable and safe stopping power.
From zigzagging around obstacles to cruising down boardwalks, handling was intuitive and comfortable in most scenarios. I found maneuverability particularly impressive when navigating tight corners.
Encountering minor issues was inevitable, but addressing them was mostly DIY-friendly due to accessible parts. Dealing with customer service turned out to be satisfactory - they were responsive and willing to resolve problems within reason.
The remote control echoes the designs of yesteryears yet functions flawlessly, ensuring uninterrupted rides – no mid-ride disconnections here. However, it did feel fragile in hand, which could be concerning during falls.
I'd rate the Island All Terrain at a strong 7.5 out of 10. While it's an exciting ride with significant power under the hood, certain aspects like battery life and the heft of the board hold back a perfect score.
