Meepo V3 vs Boosted Stealth Comparison and Review
As far as electric skateboards go, Boosted Boards have long set the popularity bar very high indeed. However, with popular electric skateboard brands emerging everywhere in what we can call the renewable transport revolution, Meepo have set the bar quite close, or perhaps even higher? Check out our e-board spec comparisons and see whether the Meepo V3 or the Boosted Stealth is superior.
Speed and Endurance
As far as board speed and endurance, Meepo takes the win quite considerably. The Meepo V3 electric skateboard boasts an incredible top speed of 28 mph, placing it amongst some of the fastest lightweight electric longboards on the skateboard market today. With the extended range option, the Meepo board can still provide much further on a single ride and is still less than half the price at $629, compared to the standard battery option at $429 (11-mile range). Both the V3 and the Stealth boards have intelligent regenerative braking systems that allows you to recharge the battery cells to drive your motor that fraction further. Our customers will tell you, the extended range version is well worth the extra penny, as 20 miles provides you with unparalleled range compared to almost all e-boards. Both the Meepo V3 and the Boosted Stealth have excellent hill climbing abilities. Both these electric skateboards are capable of climbing up to a 25%+ gradient, making them useful in the Rockies or any e-rider living up in the hills!
Board Decking & Rider Comfortability
When it comes to how comfortable you want to ride, both the Meepo V3 and the Boosted Stealth provide excellent experiences. Boosted’s Stealth board does use flex composite decking, which is unparalleled in board deck technology, as they explain how their boards and forged trucks are made to withstand “thousands of miles in daily commuting.” However, Canadian maple decking is traditional and provides natural sturdiness, comparable to that of carbon fiber boards, with a little extra board flexibility. Both these top of the range electric longboards have excellent grip tapes, and their rider comfortability is perfect for carvers and expert riders. However, the Boosted’s wireless remote controls 5-speed modes rather than 4 like the Meepo, with their all new “hyper mode,” enabled.
Overall Value for Money
There’s no doubt that if you’re spending $1,639 on an electric skateboard, you want to know what you’re getting is not just great, but excellent. With their premium quality control and excellent reputation as a global pioneer, there’s no doubt the Boosted Boards are a great buy. However, for triple the price of a Meepo V3 longboard, with less range and less speed or even a mere 1 lbs. less portable, is the extra $1000+ really worth it?
