Electric skateboarding enthusiasts who crave adrenaline and high-performance machines, meet the Lacroix Jaws 2.0. This beast is tailored for those who demand speed, power, and a premium riding experience. However, if you're new to the e-skateboard scene or prefer a casual ride around town, this might not be your first choice.
Upon unboxing the Jaws 2.0, the robust build immediately commands respect. Crafted with top-tier materials, this board feels like it can handle serious abuse without flinching. The grip tape design isn't just visually striking; it provides ample traction during aggressive rides. Assembly was minimal; I had this beauty road-ready in no time.
Performance-wise, this board is a rocket on wheels. Hitting a top speed of 70 km/h felt exhilarating yet controlled. During my daily commutes, it turned heads and made uphill climbs feel effortless. The acceleration curve is smooth, which is impressive considering its powerful motors. Braking is equally refined, providing confidence even when navigating through traffic.
Let's talk about muscle and stamina—dual 4550 W motors deliver jaw-dropping torque that makes acceleration thrilling and hill climbs a breeze. In various scenarios—whether on flat ground or tackling steep inclines—the battery life held up close to the advertised specs, only slightly diminishing in more demanding conditions.
Riding on different terrains showcased the versatility of the wheels; they absorbed most of the bumps and cracks with ease. However, I did notice some discomfort after prolonged rides on rough surfaces—something to consider if your local roads are less than ideal. Braking power is top-notch but requires a bit of getting used to at higher speeds to ensure a smooth stop.
Carving through streets and navigating tight corners with the Jaws 2.0 felt natural after a short adjustment period. Stability at high speeds was impressive due to its well-designed weight distribution, though riders should be mindful during sharp maneuvers because of the board's power.
Throughout my testing week, maintenance was minimal—just standard checks and cleaning. When reaching out to Lacroix with inquiries about potential repairs, responses were prompt and helpful. Spare parts were reasonably accessible, although some specialized components may take time to source if needed.
The remote control is intuitive with an ergonomic design that becomes second nature quickly. Electric gauges are clear and informative, providing real-time data that helps manage rides efficiently. Safety features didn't disappoint either; integrated lighting would've been icing on the cake but wasn't a deal-breaker.
After thoroughly testing the Lacroix Jaws 2.0, I'd rate it an enthusiastic 8/10. While performance and build quality are unquestionable, factors such as comfort on rough terrain slightly affected my score.
