Best Electric Skateboard Brands (Budget-Friendly)

By Billy | Updated: October 14, 2022 | Electric Skateboards

Riding electric skateboard is a blast.

The ability to cruise without having to push is mind-blowing.

I wanted to put this list of the best electric skateboard brands to help you research. Each brand offers something unique and will fit different riding styles.

I’ve fallen in love with mini electric skateboards, but they’re not for everyone.

Meepo

Price Range: $299-$1600
Headquarters: Shenzen, China
Warranty: 3-6 Months

Meepo’s website

Kieran Mao founded Meepo after he built his own electric skateboard in 2017. He posted a video on YouTube of his build and got a ton of requests to sell them. So he quit his day job (an engineer) and went full steam ahead building Meepo. Their boards are made at their Shenzen, China factory. They claim to have sold over 120,000 electric skateboards.

Backfire

Price Range: $430-$1900
Headquarters: Shanghai, China
Warranty: 6 Months – 1 Year

Backfire’s website

Backfire was founded in 2012 to create budget-friendly electric skateboards. They’ve since expanded and now offer a wide range of setups. Their about page claims their founders are Randy and Jerry, but it doesn’t seem believable (take a look for yourself).

Revel Boards

Price Range: $750
Warranty: 6 Months

Revel’s website

Revel started in 2017 with the mission to be “committed to a sustainable future of skating further, emitting more smiles, and less pollution.” They’re a “build your own” electric skateboard kit but also sell complete setups. While there are some limitations, the easiness of customizing your electric skateboard with Revel is why it’s so popular.

Bustin Boards

Price Range: $800-$1100
Warranty: 3-6 Months

Bustin’s website

Bustin Boards started as a longboarding company in NYC and has since expanded to electric. They have some of the coolest-looking setups, in my opinion. The cool part is the amount of customization you can do when ordering. Graphics, battery enclosure design, trucks – you can make yours unique.

Exway

Price Range: $600-$2000
Headquarters: Shanghai, China
Warranty: 6 Months

Exway’s website

Exway was started in 2016 and offers some solid electric setups. Their tagline is “Born for freedom,” originally focusing on those that live in a city environment. They now offer a wide variety, ranging from electric cruisers to high-performance offroad setups.

Onsra

Price Range: $1300-$1900
Warranty: 1-2 Years

Onsra’s website

Onsra is a Swedish-based electric skateboard company started by YouTuber Fabi. He started by publishing electric skateboard reviews on his YouTube channel. Eventually launched Onsra, quickly becoming one of the top electric brands on the market.

Evolve

Price Range: $1000-$2750
Warranty: 1 Year

Evolve’s website

Evolve is an Australian-based electric skateboard company that started in 2008. They’re focused on creating the “endless wave” experience. Mixing their love for snowboarding and surfing, they offer many customization options.

Onewheel

Price Range: $1050-$2575
Warranty: 6 Months – 1 Year

Onewheel’s website

Onewheel is different than all the other brands on this list since its design literally has one wheel. Technically it’s not a traditional electric skateboard, but it’s still something you might want to consider. I have one, and it’s super fun for trail riding.
