When it looks, feels and is packaged like a competitor’s, is it really competition or just a knockoff?
The Juiced Board comes dangerously close to echoing that sort of sentiment. Juiced and Boosted are words that loosely share the same meaning, but it’s the appearances where both electric skateboards really seem to converge.
Until now, I never would have recommended a sub-$1,000 electric skateboard. The cons for electric skateboards in this price range — including the Juiced — are lower build quality, performance and a less intuitive remote. This isn’t better than a Boosted or an Inboard.
But as long as you respect its limitations, it works well as an introduction to electric skateboarding.
