Speed and Motor Performance

Possway T2 Speed

As indicated, two 480W hub motors provide the Possway T2 with a top speed of 26 MPH (42 km/h). The speed may be gradually increased through four various speed modes on the remote control. It can handle slopes of up to 30 degrees when operating at max power.

Let’s look at the top speed test!

1. Top speed test

ModelTop SpeedValue ($/MPH)
Possway T223.8 mph (38.3 kph)$18.24 / mph
Maxfind Max 2 Pro21.2 mph (34.1 kph)$23.54 / mph
Skatebolt Tornado 225.2 mph (40.6 kph)$20.70 / mph
Backfire G222.4 mph (36 kph)$19.15 / mph

 I tested the top speed with my professional-grade performance logger. I could travel 23.8 MPH (38.3 km/h) on flat terrain while weighing 165 pounds.

Although it doesn’t reach the stated 26 MPH, it still compares favorably to models with comparable prices, only falling short of the somewhat more expensive Skatebolt Tornado 2.

Surprisingly, the Possway T2 has the best speed-to-cost ratio out of the bunch, making it an excellent choice for you to buy and definitely the budget option here.

2. Acceleration test

I tested its acceleration on the second test on this electric skateboard.

IntervalTime (s)
0-15 MPH (24 kph)4.65 s
0-20 MPH (32.2 kph)7.75 s
0-23.8 MPH (38.3 kph)12.44 s

 Two 480W motors should theoretically produce strong acceleration according to on-paper stats.

I put it to the test and could accelerate from 0 to 15 miles per hour in 4.65 seconds and from 0 to 20 miles per hour in 7.75 seconds. In 12.44 seconds, the top speed was reached.

Model0-15 MPH (s)
Possway T24.65 s
Skatebolt Tornado 24.04 s
Maxfind Max 2 Pro5.60 s
Backfire G24.77 s

 These metrics are noticeably superior to the Maxfind Max 2 Pro comparison. The Skatebolt Tornado 2, which reached 15 MPH in 4.04 seconds, is slightly faster.

Suppose you’re not an exceptionally skilled electric skateboarder. In that case, you’ll find the T2’s acceleration to be more than enough, which is enough if you are new to this field and looking for a board that helps you become an experienced rider.

3. Hill Climbing Tests

Your ability to climb hills may depend on where you live. Possway promotes the 30% inclination tolerance of this board. The relationship between percentages and degrees is frequently misunderstood. 30 degrees is not the same as 30%.

Calculating it yields a 16.7-degree gradient, which the Possway T2 and other boards described can easily handle.

Range and battery performance

For many riders, range and battery performance are crucial considerations. Typically, the more affordable boards fall noticeably short of the more expensive ones. 

Since the battery is an electric skateboard’s most expensive component, it’s crucial to conduct your homework and not just rely on the manufacturer’s range specifications because they frequently overstate the actual range.

You must also decide how much range you require; otherwise, you risk making the incorrect purchase.

1. Battery Capacity Comparison

ModelCapacity (Wh)Value ($/Wh)
Possway T2280 Wh$1.55/Wh
Skatebolt Tornado 2315 Wh$1.66/Wh
Maxfind Max 2 Pro158 Wh$2.77/Wh
Backfire G2187 Wh$2.29/Wh

The results show that its capacity is 10% smaller than the Skatebolt Tornado 2 battery and 10% more than the Backfire G2 and Max 2 Pro batteries.

The Possway T2 prevails once more when the pricing and battery capacity are compared.

2. Range tests

I rode the battery flat on a full charge at three different speeds to see how far I could go.

Test (#)Avg. SpeedRange
#1 (Speed Priority)18.3 mph (29.5 kph)12.9 miles (20.8 km)
#2 (Regular)15.5 mph (25 kph)15.8 miles (25.4 km)
#3 (Range Priority)12.3 mph (19.8 kph)17.9 miles (28.8 km)

As you can appreciate from the table, I rode the electric skateboard at the maximum speed for the first test, which is pretty much what I usually do.

In the second test, I tested it on an average speed which gave me a range of about 15.8 miles which is pretty decent if you keep a steady pace.

The last test was to see how much the range of this electric skateboard could be. This came out to be 17.9 miles. Honestly, it is pretty impressive, but this is not how you will always ride your board.

3. Performance Retention

As the battery levels decrease, performance on every skateboard declines. This is a result of the battery’s use of low-quality cells. Because the Possway T2’s battery contains 10S3P 18650 Li-ion Battery cells, performance isn’t significantly impacted.

Board Design and Ride Quality

The board design is actually quite good. We’ll be discussing these details according to the aspects given below:

1. Weight

The Possway T2 weighs 19 pounds despite being listed on the official website as weighing 17.5 pounds. Despite this, it is relatively light compared to its size and substantial battery capacity.

Suppose we grant it the benefit of the doubt (because the other boards might also be off from the indicated weights). In that case, it compares favorably to other models of a similar type.

2. Deck

Possway T2 Deck

 Riders of all sizes can use the Possway T2 due to its spacious deck. It is 37″ by 9.17″ in size. I really appreciate the deck’s distinct concave. Control and traction are improved, and shifting your weight safely is relatively simple if you want to carve.

A special 3mm layer of foam grip tape on the deck is intended to dampen road

vibrations. It’s not miraculous or anything like that, but it does appear to dampen the ride, so I’d say it works relatively well. Actually, the grip tape is pretty excellent as well. It offers a firm hold without being the irritating, outdated grip tape that will irritate your skin or clothes. For better grip you can check out the top 12 skateboarding shoes.

3. Wheels

Possway T2 Wheels

Five layers of Canadian maple and two layers of fiberglass make up the deck itself. The two layers of fiberglass assist slightly lower the weight, and it feels really sturdy.

It is still a lot more flexible than decks like the Tornado 2, even though it isn’t as flexible as certain bamboo decks I’ve tried. It’s a reliable middle ground that significantly reduces road vibrations without sacrificing stability at more incredible speeds. 

This board’s level of flex, which strikes a perfect balance between flex and stiffness, is ideal for beginner skaters still figuring out their personal tastes and the e-skating environment.

4. Waterproofing

The board is rated as IP54 rated, which could’ve been improved because many electric skateboards in the market are also rated. According to various sources, IP67 provides water and dust resistance, whereas IP54 rating provides dust resistance.

 Still, there is no security if you’ll wash down your electric skateboard.

That being said, it is advised that you should always avoid contact with water because this may lead to many problems.

5. ESC and Remote

Possway T2 Remote

The ESC is the electric skateboard’s central processing unit. Functionality and dependability originate from this. You may control your board with the wireless remote, which extends these capabilities.

A Wanhdt ESC is present in the Possway T2 electric skateboard, which is also utilized by TeamGee, Blitzart, Maxfind, Skatebolt, and Lycaon, is used by the Possway T2.

This implies that many of these entry-level boards function similarly. Additionally, it implies that whatever benefits and drawbacks the ESC may have may apply to various models from each brand.

The ESC features 4 great modes and a cruise control option for longer routes where you want to let your board do the whole work. You can also change between the 4 modes. The only issue I found with the ESC was its braking system which was abrupt at the start.

Fair enough, many budget-friendly boards have this problem, but that doesn’t make it any less intimidating when you’re just attempting to move steadily downward. A suitable ESC may be improved, albeit the early braking.

Final Verdict-Who should buy the Possway T2?

The board is definitely among the best budget-friendly electric skateboards out there.

The board isn’t perfect, which is the case for many budget-friendly devices; it has certain flaws. In my opinion, the largest drawback in this situation is the slightly abrupt beginning braking.

Still, generally, I believe that the advantages considerably exceed the disadvantages.

However, enjoy your rides if you plan to buy the Possway T2, and always remember to drive safely.
