Boosted is on a mission to make cities feel smaller, campuses more accessible, and commutes enjoyable. Our boards are designed and built to handle the rigors of daily use while offering an exhilarating ride with unparalleled power and control. Whether you are an experienced rider or a complete newbie, learning to ride a Boosted board is simple, intuitive, and just straight-up fun. Thanks to the likes of Casey Neistat and his army of electric stake-boarding vlogger I think the entire world now knows about electric skateboarding, more specifically California baed Boosted Boards. Arguably Boosted Boards is the Tesla of E-Boards and with their extended range battery similar to the Tesla Model S and their all-new Boosted Mini like the Tesla Model 3.
A Letter from the Founder
Today, I am excited to announce four new additions to the Boosted family. We’re refreshing our longboard line with two beautiful new models – Boosted Plus and Boosted Stealth. Boosted Plus builds on the heritage of our 2nd gen Dual+ but is truly rebuilt from the ground up. Boosted Stealth raises the bar and sets a new standard for performance and speed. And, for the first time ever, Boosted is releasing two new short boards with full kicktails – Boosted Mini S and Boosted Mini X. These boards have been optimized for portability and maneuverability and are just super fun to ride. With Boosted Mini S at just $749, we hope to make Boosted quality and performance accessible to more people than ever before.
Boosted Mini is the board I am probably most excited about. Last year during a trip to New York I couldn’t stop thinking about designing something better suited for a super dense urban environment. I wanted something that was there when I needed it, but could just be tucked away when I didn’t. I also craved more maneuverability – something I could just turn in place. When I got home I immediately started designing a shorter board with maximum portability and maneuverability in mind. That board is now Boosted Mini.
Boosted Mini’s design inspiration comes from 80’s pool decks which were all about flow. At 29.5 inches long, Boosted Mini is about 8 inches shorter than our longboards, which makes a huge difference in terms of portability. It’s easy to carry at your side without bending your arm – a relaxed pose that’s not tiring. The wide kicktail allows riders to make sharp 90 degree turns and pivot on a dime. Of course both boards offer the same Boosted performance we’re known for, custom-tuned to a board of its size.
Best of all, the S-model is half the price of our 1st and 2nd generation boards. While we understand that $749 is still an investment for folks, it’s a steal for the quality, reliability, and performance found in this board. We hope this entry point will give many more people the opportunity to experience the quality and joy of Boosted. For riders with short, frequent trips in dense areas, Boosted Mini will be the product of choice. It’s playful, fun, and a great progression for the Boosted line.
