Atom Longboards Electric B.36 Review – Is this the Ultimate board?

Let’s review the Atom Longboards Electric B.36, an electric skateboard created by designers who are also experienced riders, promising you a great ride.

This board will take you far with top speeds of up to 18 mph (29 kmh) on Average. This is a great electric skateboard, a premium product for serious riders. This review takes a closer look at its highlights.

Powerful 3600W Motor and safe Batteries

The motor is combined with the one of the greatest lithium-ion batteries available.

Atom Electric's B36 board uses only the best lithium cells on the market (Panasonic, LG, Samsung). They claim to test all batteries using peak charge and discharge rates before putting them in the B36.

The almighty dual 1800W brushless motor of the B.36 will go for hours and can help you to power over any terrain.

A single charge will practically allow you to go for 12.5 miles on average (20 Km).

Its motor is also unnoticeable, as it is protected and out of sight under the deck.

That much is the main contributing factor to the electric board’s fast acceleration and braking abilities.

This results in the smooth feel of a classical longboard coupled with the accentuated power of the electric motor. 

Regenerative Breaking - What does that mean?

When you break on the Atom Electric B36, the board actively helps to charge the battery, much like a hybrid car.

This breaking technology lets the boards rider go much further distances with greater efficiency. 

The b36 longboard's breaking system is well designed. ​If you’ve ever had a classic longboard and wished to slow down a bit before the next turn, you know that breaking can be very important.

Charging and Remote control

Its battery performance is epic, with a banging 211Wh Samsung lithium-ion battery pack. As mentionned earlier the Atom B.36 longboard uses only the best and safest batteries.

Atom Longboards have their own stringent quality control tests and only supply batteries with peak charge and discharge capabilities.

To Fully Recharge the batteries, it takes 3 Hours. This is a bit longer than other electric skateboards, but we feel that it is still acceptable. 

It also has a USB Port, providing its owner more convenient and plentiful recharging options for when you are out and about.

You will find that the remote control fits perfectly in your hand.

It is lightweight, and has its electronics all contained inside a stylish aluminium chassis keeping all of the boards vital components cool and well protected.

It also has an ergonomic carry handle so you can attach it and stylishly be on your way anywhere in no time.

A rider reported a problem with the USB port’s cap, saying that it can become loose during the boards use.

Perhaps just a small inconvenience in preventing you to keep the port dirt-free. This can ruin the effect of the long board's general stylish appearance,but it is easy to keep a check on it.​

Wrapping it up : Should you buy one?

The level of performance is high with the B.36, whoever is riding it – this is a board that delivers. It is perfect for long trips on the road, and it characteristically reaches a top speed of 20 mph.

You are able to handle any terrain, and this can even happen in damp climates.

The Atom Electric B.36 is a high-quality board with a wealth of innovative features which will lend themselves brilliantly to safety and execution. Its light weight makes it one of the best boards available today and with basic care, it should be with you for years to come.

The B.36 has a few cons

​The board has been sealed completely but is not classed as waterproof in regards to industrial standards (No IP certification). It therefore may not be the most appropriate board for all weather conditions (think rain). It is a bit sad, considering cheaper electric boards like the Maxfind passed an IP certification.

Most electric long boards usually work best on paved surfaces that are moisture free.

It's expensive. There is no denying that this board is not cheap. Although You are paying the price of a high quality product and cutting edge tech (regenerative breaking, bamboo & Maple deck...).

Overall, it is a terrific electric skateboard if you can afford it.

I do love the way this one looks but not being true weather proof is a bit worrisome. We get a lot of rain here! Also, I am not sure about the cost. In comparison to a few others I was reading about, you can get more for paying less. I think this is down to the design. It looks very fancy and sophisticated. I don’t think my son would take care of it though haha

    Taluer skateboard is different from other suppliers’ skateboard, it has three control model.

    It is new product and a good opportunity to sell Taluer electric skateboard.

This is hands down the best electric skateboard I have ever used! I got one recently and it is my 7th one. I am a bit of a fan, you can say. I can’t see myself enjoying another one. It runs so smooth and I am able to get exactly what I want from it. Not to mention, it is SOLID. It feels good and looks good. I get compliments and questions everywhere I take it. Well worth the money!
