FROM REALITY, PART 1:


Purchase - I bought a new (notice *not refurbished*) Boosted Mini X on Amazon to get the fast and free shipping and the excellent return policy. Actually, I prefer to buy all my stuff anywhere else but when it comes to buying highly sought after products that are quickly out of stock elsewhere I don´t hesitate and just love Amazon for being stocked up most of the time.

Warranty - The purchase is covered with a 12 months warranty which is worth nothing as most people know (read the paragraph "Boosted Boards / Boosted USA"). However, having tons of replacement parts stocked up at retailers and even Boosted USA it didn´t bother me too much. However, I advise you not to add the 24-months protection because it´s pointless.

What´s in the box? - Boosted Mini X, remote control, charger, user manual.

First impression - this board just seems great engineered and I liked its performance, handling, point of balance and its control right from the beginning. The design and the finish are just amazing. However Mini`s charger is a clunky beast and the stock Lunar wheels did seem a bit small and hard.
Battery range and portability - the Mini X gets a good range and range does matter to all riders. The both more expensive boards Boosted Plus V3 and Boosted Stealth share the same stock battery range of 14 miles. Keep in mind, there´re some key factors from real life that influence every battery range in particular: weight of the rider, speed setting/ride mode, velocity/how you accelerate, terrain profile. The charger by the way is not very portable as mentioned, but it does the job. You can take the Boosted Mini X on the plane if you remove the battery and stick it in a lugagge, use this this tool. However, the extended range battery (199 watts) is unfortunetely not legal for air flight. The Mini X itself is as expected a very portable and stowable board even though somewhat front heavy.

Most common issues - #1 noise - the both belt motors of 500 watts are silently enough if all screws are tightened propely. I didn´t have an issue so far. #2 belts - some frustrated guys are spreading widely across the internet that in particular the Mini X requires its first belt replacement very quickly. First of all don´t forget the occasional belt replacement or adjustment is common across all electric skateboards with belt motors, above all if someone pushes it constantly over the limit. Some people are just not careful in terms of what terrain they go over with the Mini X but it matters a lot. Just be aware and avoid very bad and crappy roads because you will definitely feel it and the Mini X too. #3 vibrations - as mentioned before it´s not built as an offroad-board, however, think about a wheel upgrade because it could be a small door opener.

Wheel upgrade - changing the size of the wheels can have a big effect on top speed, braking, and overall board performance. Nevertheless you can change out the stock 80mm wheels with larger Caguama 85mm wheels with softer rubber for a noticeably smoother ride when the pavement is rough - I did so and I´m happy - there is an installation guide for boosted boards out there. Don´t forget to check for wheel clearance on any modified setup and make any necessary adjustments. This eliminates by the way also noticeably a portion of the vibrations, READ PART 2
 

GEAR PICK* ②

When it comes to replacement and adjustments, you´ll need compatible high quality and high strength parts to work with. The portable T tool accessory with T-type allen key and L-type Phillips head wrench screwdriver is what you need to tighten up, replace or repair your board quickly. The Iwonder wheel pulley conversion Kit 3M-56T enables you to upgrade your Boosted board and to expand your wheel collection. The Kutrick Boosted Boards kevlar belts are much stronger than the stock belts and come with the same teeths as the original belts what makes them far more durable and fully compatible with Boosted Boards. The orange, blue and purple Orangatang Caguama wheels come with a much softer and bigger rubber than the Lunar stock wheels and roll over all small cracks, rocks and sticks like like small pontoon boats over water and reduce noticable a part of vibrations.

FROM REALITY, PART 2:


Speed settings - you can choose from 3 ride modes, let´s call them relaxed cruise, intermediate or fast ride. The bigger Boosted boards as V2 and Plus have 4 modes, Boosted Stealth has 5. But I´m not a friend of playing around with the remote all the time while being forced to focus on the road. Riding on flat surface on intermediate mode is already a pure joy even with the small and a bit harder 80mm stock wheels. You´ll realize pretty quickly that it´s more like you`re surfing or wakeboarding the street. In terms of fast ride and acceleration, just be careful and respect Mini´s power, it is not a toy and it really takes off. Thus accelerate slowly and wear a helmetknee and elbow padsguard gloves - padded shorts until you learn how safely to operate this small rocket. You can actually mount some led skateboard lights on the Mini if you wish or need to cruise in low light conditions.

Maximum load - according to Boosted Mini X´s specs the weight limit is around 250 pounds. Boosted topped it once in a well known comment "We have had Shaquell O'Neal (325 lbs) ride our board". However, the short footage shows him just standing on a V2 for marketing purposes, thus it´s not very helpful. I get something around 200 lbs when I get on to the scale, and I´ve zero issue uphill. So eventually you guys and ladies will be fine with this board too.

Parts and modding - playing around I´ve noticed plenty of opportunities in terms of upgrades and hyper unlocks within the Boosted community. There are a lot of useful modifications and chips such as the Amnesia Modchip. However, there´re important things to know in regards to this upgrade, and some guys ride their gear to death without looking after it much. Be wise and always ready to maintain and to check in the first place. I´ll give the Amnesia Modchip eventually a try and promote it on blessmyfeet.com soon when it has been sufficiently tested (in progress). Boosted´s customer base is however extremely passionate and known for tuning, modding and offers tons of board parts for replacement in case something is out of stock at retailers. Right now Boosted USA is stocked up with the most parts you´ll need. Thus you´ve always great opportunities in order to repair, replace and tune, actually even without any need for support from Boosted who actually designed the Mini X. If you´re located in the EU, UK or Russia there is an awsome parts supplier delivering very fast to you. The Fatdaddy Urban Mobility Store is already expanding and they put all efforts to reach new grounds shipping fast and safe worldwide, included the United States or Canada. By the way they´re offering also some refurbished Boosted Boards in top conditions from time to time. Until than Boosted USA should work for the US since the´re stocked up with the last inventory from Boosted.

Recommendation - from the the next point of view, if you don´t drive a car unless you need to, you will save a couple tanks of gas and you will park for free all the time, and this just pays for itself when it comes to short commutes, spontaneous errands in an urban enviroment and when you´re always on the move with your board. The Mini X is of course so much more portable and better stowable than a Boosted longboard in example. Regardless of some weak points the Mini X is solid built and sturdy, and allows upgrades, tuning and modding.

Boosted Boards / Boosted USA - It´s only fair to mention that Boosted Boards suffered a lot due to the trade war and covid, and that they´re out of business. American Businesses are quietly dying by the thousands because of hardcore restrictions and limitations during this ominous coronavirus pandemic. Actually entire industries do. The coronavirus has forever altered the retail landscape. Lime bought Boosted’s intellectual property and other assets. Boosted USA bought almost all remaining inventory. However Boosted USA isn´t Boosted Boards. Boosted Boards is no longer, and every warranty is done, but the good news is Boosted USA has tons of parts and stuff to keep you up and rolling. If you´re interested in more details about Boosted USA, read the full interview here. By the way, a top notch premium board like the Mini X won´t be developed neither twice nor on daily basis, so it should be all about the product itself in the first place when considering a purchase.

Bottom line - In terms of overall quality and performance there is no comparison to any of the other mini electric skateboard that costs less money. The Boosted Mini X can literally change your life for the better if you´re understanding its value. Actually, you`ll love this board for sure. Just in case buy on Amazon to get the free shipping and the free return policy, if the board isn´t ok, you can return it to Amazon. Get this highly sought after product as soon as possible while supplies really last. The Boosted Mini X is in the progress to be sold out everywhere and won´t be produced anymore. Thus now it´s probably your last chance to snag this thing. Bless your feet!
