TeamGee H9 Electric Skateboard Video Review (CleanTechnica Exclusive)

The TeamGee H9 is a beast of an electric skateboard on paper, so we were thrilled when TeamGee reached out to us with a board for us to take out and thrash around town.

The TeamGee H9 is a beast of an electric skateboard on paper, so we were thrilled when TeamGee reached out to us with a board for us to take out and thrash around town.

The first thing we noticed about TeamGee’s H9 was just how well it was built. The carbon fiber and Canadian Maple deck seamlessly hold the batteries for the board while at the same time, provide an extremely durable deck that just feels bombproof.

That durability translates directly to a stiff ride. In the longboarding world, lines are drawn between those who like more flexible decks that are traditionally better for carving down hills – or in the case of electric skateboards – carving up hills.

On the other side, some riders like stiffer boards which are better for power slides. I’m personally more of a carver but found the H9 to be well suited for my riding style even with its stiffer deck. The durability of the combination of carbon fiber and maple makes it worth it to me, whereas decks that are pure carbon fiber, like Evolve’s GT, make me worry about banging into things for fear of cracking the carbon fiber.

The TeamGee H9 brings its high quality build at a bargain price of just $499 through its Indiegogo campaign. That’s set to go up to $1,199 after the campaign closes, but gives early adopters a chance to get a great board at a fraction of the price of many competing boards. Obviously it is difficult to tell how the board will last over time but the brand has built a following with its H6 and many riders are coming back for round two with the H9.

The stated range of board is impressive and in our testing, we have put miles and miles on the board but haven’t pushed it to its limit of 11 miles though this feels very achievable based on the testing we have done.

Check out my video review of the board below for a first-hand account of how it rides and pretend for a second that you’re flying down the road on an electric skateboard at 20+ miles per hour. If you didn’t see it on the first round, have a read of the written review of the TeamGee H9 here.
