Yuneec has been the go-to brand for people looking for a cheap but good alternative to get into electric skateboarding. If you haven’t heard about Yuneec they are a Chinese engineering company manufacturing Drones, Electric Skateboards etc… In the electric skateboarding world they are known for their E-Go Cruiser board. A good board coming in at one of the cheapest prices out there. Look at our review of the Yuneec E-go cruiser here. Their previous board is loved amongst many because of the low price point, good range and good customer support. Many riders however quickly turn to a Boosted Board or Evolve because the Yuneec lacks speed and becomes boring rather quickly.
The Yuneec E-GO 2 is no different. All around an awesome board to get started with the hobby, with decent specs and a good price-point!
Let’s dive a little bit deeper into this beauty…
Yuneec E-Go 2 Specifications
|18 miles/ 30 km
|12,5 mph/ 20kmh
|15 pounds/ 6.8 kg
So as we can see the speed hasn’t been improved upon. A shame because that could make this board a real winner.
It seems that the range hasn’t been changed as well. Neither has the motor performance, the hill incline is still stuck at 10%.
The weight of the board has increased slightly in comparison to the original Yuneec E-Go, from 14 pounds to 15 pounds.

So performance wise they did not change too much. Quality wise I hope they did then. In their product video they claim improved trucks for a smoother carve but that’s also where it stops.
The New Yuneec E-go 2 design
Specification wise the board has not changed much from its predecessor but design wise it has. A lot. Yuneec is coming out with 5 new color variations.
Two other colors will be available: Lemon Punch and Space Purple.
The shape of the E-go has been changed as well, from a downhill shape to a more cruiser type of longboard. The board shows more concaveness and a kick-tail for better handling.
These new color variations are nice, but it’s a shame they didn’t up the specs.
If they keep their prices as with the Ego 1, I have no doubt about it, it will sell like hot cakes!
Benefits of the Yuneec E-Go 2
This new Yuneec board has many positive sides:
- It’s lightweight
- It has an impressive range for its price point
- It’s a perfect board to get into electric skateboarding without breaking the bank
Downsides of the Yuneec E-Go 2
- From looking at user experiences quality can be an issue
- Low top speed 12 mph ( this might be enough for you though!)
Final verdict on the Yuneec E-Go 2
The first version of the E-Go was in our eyes the perfect choice for people looking to get into electric skateboarding.
This upgraded version shares the same characteristics; low cost for decent quality.
