Azbo H6 Electric Longboard
Azbo makes awesome and high-performing skateboards and longboards, and we totally agree. They have a range of electric powered skateboards of which the H6 is one of them. This board comes with lots of useful and standard features you should expect to find in a modern electric longboard. So here we go.
The deck of the H6 is superbly engineered in line with the Azbo tradition of committing quality and premium materials to its manufacturing processes. Its 8-ply maple deck has superior strength in comparison with other boards in its class. In addition, the high-density Emery non-slip and waterproof surface ensures your rides are much safer.
What about the power section? The H6 is powered by an insane dual 1kw motors, which translates to a combined output of 2000 watts. Together, this twin powerhouse is capable of giving you a maximum throughput of up to 25 miles per hour.
Expect this machine to achieve up to 19 miles on a single charge, although you may be able to squeeze out more mileage, depending on a variety of factors including your weight, the topography of your area and the type of wheels you are using.
The 6,600mAh battery takes roughly 2 hours to fill up. What about hills? The H6 can comfortably negotiate inclines as steep as 25o. Of course, this is dependent on your weight. And, talking of weight, it can carry a maximum weight of 286lbs.
In addition, with your purchase, you get a protective set and a one-year warranty. Their support staff are also friendly and prompt. However, we found out that the rated output of 2000 watts is not the actual rating. You will likely see 400 watts for each hub motor. Well, even if the actual rating is 800watts, this machine is capable of attaining 25 miles per hour, and that’s what’s important.
By a long shot, this isn’t the fastest electric skateboard, but is quite speedy and responsive.

On the downside, the board is kinda heavy – weighing in at 19.5lbs. Also, the slow mode is too slow. It could use some update to make it go a little bit faster.
