“The NG-2 isn’t the best electric skateboard I’ve ever tried, but it’s the best under $500.”
I used to avoid Swagtron skateboards like the plague.
Mostly because I despise the name, and up until recently, the company insisted on emblazoning it on every skateboard it produced.
But lately, in addition to toning down the cringeworthy branding, the company has beefed up the quality of its skateboards.
Despite the fact it’s outfitted with impressive specs, it’ll only set you back a meager 400 bucks, just a fraction of what most high-end boards cost.
The Swagtron BG-2’s batteries will only net you about 11 miles on a single charge (give or take, depending on your weight), which is a bit on the low side.
