It has a powerful dual 350W motor that gives you the plenty of traction.

Swagtron's Voyager is a robust, more steady feel and a better ride in general. It is a popular longboard for experienced riders, not only for its control features, but also because it offers new riders something different.

Below is a review of some of the highlights of this unique electric skateboard.

Classic longboard design & 8-ply Deck

The Voyager has a classic longboard look, with a 42-inch deck made with 6 layers of Canadian maple wood, interlaced between two layers of quality bamboo, making the board strong and flexible so you can experience an adaptable ride.

The board has a nice grip material along its length which helps to keep your feet in place as you ride.

You will find a carrying handle on the back which means that you can easily carry the Swagtron Voyager with you wherever you might want to go.

Two large wheels contribute to the classic look and will you ride over any terrain.

The wheels connect to board with adjustable trucks that you are able to calibrate for clean turns and steadiness.​

The Voyager is made for speed

Its dual 350 watt motors get you speeding along, up to 15 miles per hour on most surfaces, when you are using the speed locked controller.

If you want to take it further, you can reach up to 30 miles per hour using the boards optional ungoverned controller, however the ungoverned controller is not yet available at the time of publishing this review.

Smart Wireless Controller

You are able to easily accelerate and decelerate as you ride along giving you full control from the start.

The cons

More than one customer mentioned in his review that when low on batteries, the remote control tends to disconnect from the Voyager randomly.

It can take some time to get used to breaking on this board, and the rider should slow down before attempting it.

Frequently Asked Questions

How well can the Swagtron Voyager climb up-hill?

Swagtron says up to 15°, however you may want to upgrade the voyager with the ungoverned controller when available in order to get enough power.

Does it come with a Warranty?

Swagtron offers a 1 year limited warranty on the voyager electric longboard.

Wrapping it up: Should you get one?

So after reviewing the Swagtron Voyager, we feel that this is a very good choice, especially at the price point.

The classic longboard look is intemporal and works really well, the voyager pulls it off.

In terms of possible negative points, you should be aware that the remote control's batteries should be kept at a high level, it gives no warning when batteries are low and will just disconnect intermittently.

Another thing we would like to see is the "ungoverned" controller, which unlocks speed to twice the top speed with the standard model.

There is a way to unlock the controller, that involves opening up the board and disconnecting a wire, but that​ would kill your warranty...

Aside from this point, this is truly a 5 stars product, really well made and enjoyable. It feels like a normal longboard, with the added power. 100% recommended.​
