Electric skateboarding aficionados, meet the Ownboard Bamboo GT Pro: a dream machine for those seeking speed and versatility. Catering primarily to riders with a need for speed and a penchant for long rides, this e-skateboard is a powerhouse. If carving up city streets or tackling steep inclines tickles your fancy, you'll appreciate the Bamboo GT Pro's capabilities. However, commuters looking for a lightweight, ultra-portable option might find its heft less appealing.
Clutching the Ownboard Bamboo GT Pro for the first time, its sturdy construction was immediately evident. Crafted from bamboo with a dash of fiberglass, flex and strength harmoniously coexist in this board. Assembly wasn't needed; it came ready to ride out of the box which was great for instant gratification. Everyday use highlighted thoughtful design elements like the ergonomic concave deck shape, ensuring feet stay planted during exhilarating rides.
Performance-wise, the GT Pro is a beast. Commuting turned into an adventure as I weaved through traffic effortlessly. For fun rides along beachfront paths or park trails, its swift acceleration made each outing thrilling. Speed enthusiasts will rejoice at reaching 52 km/h – though caution is advised! Even on hills that usually intimidate other boards, this champ tackled them with ease thanks to potent motors and robust drive train.
Powered by dual 1500 W motors, no challenge seemed too steep. The battery kept up admirably with my demands; during tests, I found the real-world battery life aligned closely with the promised specs. Lengthy cruises were possible without the constant worry of finding the next charging station – a true testament to its endurance.
Rolling on 120mm Cloudwheels equipped with damping foamies cores was akin to cruising on clouds. Daily commutes felt smooth despite urban imperfections in the pavement. Braking was responsive and reliable even at high speeds – a critical feature when navigating unpredictable city terrain that added an extra layer of safety.
Handling was intuitive; transitions from asphalt to light off-road conditions were seamless. The board's weight did not hinder maneuverability, and comfort remained high even after extended periods of riding across varied landscapes.
Maintaining the GT Pro didn't feel like a chore – cleaning was straightforward and tools provided worked efficiently for minor tweaks. When faced with an issue, customer service proved helpful and replacement parts were accessible without long waits or inflated prices.
Owning this e-skateboard introduced me to conveniences I never knew I needed: an easy-to-use remote control and clear electric gauges made monitoring my ride effortless. Safety features like reflective decals were subtle yet appreciated additions.
After ample time spent pushing this board to its limits, my rating stands firm at 8/10. Speed capability and comfort were deciding factors in this high score; however, weight could be a downside for some potential users.
