I just got my board today and took it for its maiden voyage and It exceeded every expectation I had. I got the W1AS kicktail with a 6.0 samsung battery and upgraded hub motors. First of all, the controller is perfect. It is very progressive, you can accelerate gracefully or explode off the line. It by no means leaves you wanting more. Even at cruising speeds when you give it some more gas you GO! The top speed is as fast as your willing to go! I definitely got 20mph and backed off. Then there is the range. I rode the board for almost 2 hours, about 6 miles and the battery just dropped to 50%. And after my ride I went up my rather steep driveway and it did it like nothing. This board was hands down the best $460 dollars I have ever spent. I am beyond happy with it and 1000% recommend an ownboard to anybody looking for an e-board.
