How fast can you go on an electric “skateboard”? The new record is breathtaking

Raine Kent is quite a respected figure in the Australian skateboarding community in particular. For more than a decade, he has been sharing some truly unforgettable footage of him riding his board with local fans.

The fastest electric skateboard

And just by pure coincidence, he is also a mechanical engineer by training and an avid fan of electric mobility. So it was only a matter of time before he came up with his own electric skateboard.

At this point, he has even designed a few of them and is even trying to fill an imaginary empty space in the Australian market with them, reports Electrek. And because he’s also a racer in body and soul, he’s constructed a special with which he’s attempting to break the world speed record.

He summed up the result as follows, “I love the feeling that skateboarding gives you. I started my career in downhill racing and climbing hills at speed or in a sharp glide and now I’ve moved on to e-skateboarding. The speed, the adrenaline, the rush – I love it. It was very scary but exciting at the same time and it was good to achieve something I’ve dreamed of for so long.”

World record moved up by a steamer

Just to add, until Australan’s successful attempt, the maximum speed reached was 95 km/h. Kent managed not only to beat it, but to push the new bar quite a bit further. The meter stopped at 132.37 km/h (82.25 mph). This record is also already in the Guinness Book of World Records.

In conclusion, we would just like to add that under the auspices of the Perth-based company Raith, the winning piece is available to the general public as part of the subsequent series production. If you’re interested, you can have it for around $3500.
