The Backfire Electric Skateboard – Features And Review

A backfire electric skateboard sits in the middle of the spectrum between a gas powered skateboard and an electric one. If you’re not sure whether this type of skateboard is for you, let’s go over its benefits and features to help you make up your mind.

Riding On A Board

Many people may be put off by the idea of riding on a board with no wheels at all. After all, what good are they for when there are no wheels to slow you down or transfer power from one direction to another? Well, electric boards offer a solution to that conundrum. Instead of having large, heavy wheels on the board itself, it instead rides on small wheels on the tail. This makes the rider feel like they’re riding on a normal skateboard with all of the advantages that come along with that kind of riding. Plus, since it’s all done with batteries, the ride is much smoother than the alternative.

A backfire g2 also offers some unique features that set it apart from other brands. For example, the deck is built with two longboard trucks. On some models there are three longboard trucks, while others only have two. The two longboard trucks allow the rider to change directions mid-ride, something that’s not always available with other boards.

Use High Quality Electronics

This design is also achieved by using high quality electronics. One benefit of these high quality components is that they eliminate the need for backlights, which means a lower initial cost for owners. As a result of the lack of backlights on these boards, they can be significantly cheaper than comparable brand counterparts without sacrificing much in performance. Galaxy is one of the few companies to offer this type of product at such affordable prices.

The real strength of the Backfire G2 comes from two aspects. The first is the quality of the ride. The board does have firm cambering, which helps to distribute body weight more equally throughout the deck, and prevents the rider from feeling like he’s being thrown around inside the tight turns. The second benefit is the quick, aggressive response that the onboard lithium polymer battery gives the rider.

High Quality Roller

The Backfire boards are designed to give you the feeling of riding a high quality roller. It’s not uncommon for people to experience that when they’re on other brands’ electric skates. That’s because their wheels tend to be so much less compliant than those offered by Galaxy, Tranquility, and the rest of the industry. This causes the turns on these other skateboards to feel rough and unresponsive. The backfire board, on the other hand, responds immediately and with smoothness, allowing you to always feel in control of your riding experience.


The Backfire G2 can be charged internally or plugged into an outlet for the rear. Charging the deck is simple and easy. You simply charge the built-in six-foot outlet, which takes about forty-five minutes, or through the included charger that plugs into the rear. Once the deck has been fully charged, the rider will be ready to ride. The rider will notice a significant improvement in performance from the increased charge time and will notice a reduction in wind resistance, giving you an increased boost in speed and acceleration. If you are looking for a fast and efficient electric snowboard, then the Backfire G2 is definitely worth checking out.
