Our new RX controller features an oversized roller thumb wheel so you'll have finer control of both acceleration and braking. With the RX Remote you can either make small speed adjustments or redline the acceration depending on your need. Also, the RX Remote features 4 unique braking modes, allowing you to customize the deceleration curves to your liking.
Note: The RX Remote is compatible with all R1 and R1 Elite models and can be paired in just 15 seconds following these directions.
Function: The R1X's kick tail allows you to tack around, pop it up, or ollie cubs. Micro-concavity hugs your feet while carving. Built in handles mean you can literally carry the R1X with just one finger.
Form: We designed a killer deck first, then added electric power. Detailed touches like the engraved logo in the Canadian maple deck and the laser cut grip tape wave make the R1 stand out in a crowded world where many electric skateboards look the same. You'll find the Riptide to be far more portable than the longer boards from Boosted Board, Evolve Skateboards, Inboard, or other advanced electric longboards (view comparisons to other boards on the market below).
R1 & R1X need to be changed MISSPELLING: CUSTOMIZABLE BELT TENSION:
New in 2019 we've implemented slotted motor mounting, empowering you to tweak the distance between your motor shaft and hanger axle. Reduce this distance to relax belt tension and increase coasting. Increase this distance to tighten up the belt if slipping is occurring.
Designed in San Diego by lifelong skateboarders and surfers, Riptide was built on the belief that an electric skateboard can be super powerful and incredibly convenient, while retaining all the features that make an unpowered board great.
