14 Mile RX Battery

Shipping Now

Say goodbye to range anxiety with up to 14 miles of commute-crushing range per charge. The Riptide R1X battery features the largest capacity standard battery of any short board on the market. Samsung 25R 2500mah high drain lithium-ion cells give the RX Battery more range, more peak power, and less voltage sag.

The RX Battery can also be purchased separately and installed on any R1 or R1 Elite by following these directions. It is fully compatible with Riptide standard and speed chargers.

 

Details:

The Riptide R1X battery is 6S4P (21.6v nominal / 25.2v max, 10.0Ah total), with Samsung INR18650-25R high-discharge lithium ion cells each capable of over 20A of continuous discharge.

The BMS is 30A continuous / 60A peak, with all standard safety protections, cell balancing, temperature monitoring, and over-spec’d components.

Running high-discharge cells in a powerful 4P configuration with 10.0Ah of high-drain capacity gives the Riptide a significant increase in range per charge, with enough amperage to handle heavy loads when it needs it.

Fast and controllable soul carving machine

This isn't my first Riptide. I'm moved the 90mm ABEC11's over and it's even better than the first. If it weren't easy to put the ABEC11's on it, I would hold back a star. IMHO it needs the ABEC's to ride smooth enough for my taste; but I'm very picky in that regard.

I’m absolutely in love with this convenient and fun way of motor transportation. The design and feel of the board is of high quality from deck to wheels while in a light and portable form factor. I’m in love with my purchase and can’t wait for more accessories and support from the Ripe Riptide Team!

Loving it!

It’s fast, turns tight and brakes well. Had to get used to a slightly different stance (more forward leaning) because it’s a short board, but after that brief learning curve it was 100% fun!

Review on Riptide RX1

Amazing board. My wife loves it. Compact yet still sporty. We ride boards every day now. It's an easier choice to get us outdoors

Best thing I’ve ever bought myself

I skated a little bit when I was a kid. I spent an hour or so in beginner mode and was able to be in expert mode full-time shortly there after. It has turned my commute – something I used to hate – into something I now love.

Ride Like A Champ

Love my R1X. It brings back memories cruising down the boardwalk with ease. Easy to zip through the crowds. I can even Ollie curbs. Great board all around.
