Electric skateboards do not lack for speed—but turn onto a bumpy road, and a smooth ride can fast become a smooth face-plant onto the sidewalk. Thanks to an independent suspension system, which helps absorb vibrations before they reach your feet, the Hunter Board ($1,949) makes even bumpy cobblestones light work.“In the end, that translates into confidence,” says Pedro Andrade, Hunter’s CEO. With a pair of motors that can hit speeds of up to 34 m.p.h. and a battery designed for replacement on extra-long rides, the board’s extra stability comes in handy. —Patrick Lucas Austin
