About Blitzart Board

The Blitzart Board series comes under the affordable category. They work much better than what you’d expect of its quality at the low price. They resemble a DIY board with less focus on design and more on offering functionality. If you’re venturing out into the electric skateboard market and want to test the waters before upgrading to a high-end board, Blitzart Boards are perfect for you. Not only do you get them at a low price, but the simplistic design and performance give them their value across all models. Some higher-end Blitzart Boards can impress you with their performance. However, the lower end ones are good just enough as metaphorical training wheels. The Blitzart single motor circuit board is common in all the variants from the company. On the other hand, the Blitzart board motor is ideal for newcomers. Moreover, all Blitzart electric skateboards come with a 3-month warranty period to cover any manufacturing or electrical defects.
