Assembly wasn't an issue—it was pretty much ready to go upon arrival, which is a huge plus.
This board's performance in urban landscapes has been nothing short of impressive. Commuting became exhilarating, with its top speed of 42 km/h making short work of distances that once felt tedious.

It managed to keep up even when pushing the board near its speed limits or during extended uphill routes.
Smooth rides were standard thanks to the well-designed wheels that effortlessly absorbed most bumps and cracks. Safety never felt compromised due to the braking system's effectiveness in quick stops or during those unexpected moments where precise control was crucial.
Handling this e-skateboard felt intuitive across pavement, asphalt, and even less forgiving surfaces like brick paths. Cornering was a breeze; whether carving at high speeds or navigating through tight spaces, comfort was never sacrificed.
Maintenance duties were minimal—a welcome aspect for riders not keen on frequent tinkering. When faced with a minor issue, support from Ownboard was prompt and helpful. Although I didn't have any major repair needs during my time with the W3, knowing that parts were accessible provided peace of mind.
Incorporated features like the quality remote control enriched my riding experience by offering precision and ease of use while maneuvering different speeds and terrains. Electric gauges gave clear indications of battery life and speed which were handy during longer journeys ensuring I wasn't caught off guard by a low battery.
After careful consideration of all facets, I give the Ownboard W3 an 8/10 rating. Factors influencing this score include its exceptional performance, sturdy build quality, impressive speed capabilities balanced with safety features—all culminating into a reliable e-skateboard choice.
