As opposed to traditional skateboards, a skateboard with electric motors does not require pushing. When you're skating a long distance, sometimes you wear out from pushing so much. This is no problem with an electric skateboard. You can ride across town with ease.
Besides going downhill, traditional skateboards can't go very fast. With an electric skateboard, you can go up to 11 miles per hour, no matter what the incline is. The remote that comes with your board gives you great control over how fast you travel.
The Uphill Battle
To tie the first two points together, you can go travel uphill with ease with your electric skateboard. Going up a steep hill on a traditional skateboard can be dreadful, but your new skateboard makes this trip a breeze.
Two in One
The best part about the electric skateboard is that it can also be a manual board. It easily switches back and forth between modes. Let's say you're at the skate park, trying to perform some tricks that are easier without the remote. Then on your way home, you're ready for the electric features to get you there quickly. Electric skateboards have that ability.
