When talking about cheaper electric longboards, there are some issues whether or not they deliver on what the manufacturers’ promises. In the case of the Blitzart Huracane, the good news is that in terms of top speed and range, this electric skateboard delivers well.
Naturally, one has to take into account that the weight and skill of the person riding the electric skateboard, including Blitzart, will impact the acceleration and the ultimate speed. Also, another one of potential concern when discussing the performance of the lower-price range electric skateboards is the longevity.
Will the Blitzart electric Skateboard perform well in the long run? Or will its range and speed start declining after a few months? It’s good to know that after many months of use, the Huracane does maintain the power and speed you expect.
This electric longboard has a firm deck and a pretty decent set of trucks. You might need to tighten them up a bit initially, but after that, it won’t be necessary. The motor is contained within one of the rear wheels and is well-protected. So, it doesn’t have a belt system where the engine is on the outside.
The Blitzart Huracane Electric Skateboard is shipped fully assembled, and you get more than a decent four-year warranty on the board. Remember that the No.1 enemy of electric boards is water, and when it comes to water resistance, Huracane doesn’t bode all that well.
The Blitzart brand is very recognizable in the world of electric skateboards and longboards. The Huracane has a single 350W hub motor, but don’t let that fool you. This is one mighty skateboard.
One of the great things about hub motors is that once the battery runs out, you can use your electric skateboard as a regular one. The single motor also allows for regenerative braking.
The Blitzart Huracane has a 36V, 4Ah Li-ion battery, which you can replace if you need to. On a single battery charge, the Huracane and Tornado can travel a distance of 6-8 miles. And one of the excellent features of the battery is that it fully charges in about two 2.5 hours.
When you hit the brakes, the motor charges the battery a little, and this improves the overall mileage. That also means that if you ride this board less aggressively, you can extend the range as well.
One of the downsides of single-motor electric skateboards like Blitzer Huracane is that they can wobble a bit. The reason is that it’s just one side that is powered. But since the deck is sturdy and offers extra stability, the wobble is only a minor issue.

When it comes to the maximum speed and range, the Blitzart Huracane is up there with the expensive electric skateboards. It has no issues developing the max 17 mph speed, and unless you’re riding aggressively or trying to climb uphill, the 10 miles range is very reasonable. As far as uphill rides go, the Huracane can do a slight uphill without any significant issues. But it’s not meant to climb steep hills.
You also get a wireless remote with this skateboard. It has forward, brake, and shift buttons. The Huracane can go in reverse, and it also has an LED light indicator so you can track how much juice is there in the battery. It also has a switch on the side that powers the remote on and off. And another switch that lets you alternate between the beginner or advanced mode. It’s also has a comfortable and ergonomic grip.
This Blitzart electric skateboard review shows that you don’t need to go for the most expensive option to buy a top electric skateboard with decent speed and range. A single motor powered Huracane can develop high speed and range, and it will recharge very quickly.
You can customize the wheels and also enjoy the easy-to-use and ergonomic remote. It’s up to you when it comes to the design of the deck, Huracane or Tornado, but the quality and durability are the same. The Huracane will go a long way for a beginner or an intermediate rider.
4.4 – A good value beginner board for the skater that is new to the sport or had a few years break. If you’re not sure if you want to drop serious bank on a premium board straight up this is a solid option.
