The WowGo AT2 Deck
There is a lot to unpack here, so let’s first talk about the deck. The deck is a combination of fiberglass, bamboo and canadian maple with shock-absorbing grip tape on the top.
Why Add Fiberglass?
Fiberglass is added to reinforce the deck and ensure that the electric skateboard doesn’t break in half upon impact.
Why Add Bamboo & Canadian Maple
The Canadian Maple and bamboo combo braces the electric skateboard deck for a unique flex that is great for rough terrains. It has enough bounce to absorb bumps and cracks in the ground, while maintaining stability when riding at those higher speeds.
Wheels For The WowGo AT2 Electric Skateboard
There are two wheel options for the WowGo AT2 Electric Skateboard. These options include 175mm pneumatic tires or 120mm Cloudwheels. That said, the WowGo AT2 electric skateboard is belt-driven, which makes the wheels interchangeable if you’re trying to make custom modifications. The 80mm Orangatang street wheels are known to be a popular selection among riders.
The 175mm pneumatic wheels offer better shock absorption for a much smoother ride. These wheels make riding on terrains such grass, gravel, or dirt an easier experience. They pneumatic tires might slow you down slightly due to their weight but they allow for much more riding versatility.
Cloudwheels are a step above street wheels but they’re not exactly all-terrain wheels either. Since they are lighter than the pneumatic tires, you reach slightly faster speeds. They don’t perform as well as the pneumatic tires on all terrains, but they still perform well on rough roads. If you’re a skilled rider who knows what they’re doing, Cloudwheels are still a great option.
Double Kingpin Trucks
The Double Kingpin Trucks provide a flexible carving experience.
As far as quality goes, the Double Kingpin Trucks are pretty solid. The design and dimensions of the trucks pair with the deck rather nicely, as we have never carved so hard that the deck has hit the wheel.
Depending on how important stability is to you, you can always loosen your trucks to get a deeper carve, but we were happy with the Double Kingpin Trucks as they came.
The Battery Pack
The battery can be found in a high-strength enclosure under the deck. It was designed to be flexible along with the deck for a seamless ride. The enclosure includes a heat sink to help prevent the battery or ESC from overheating. Considering that the entire electric skateboard itself only weighs 30 lbs, the battery pack is relatively lightweight.
The remote includes a single button, a thumb wheel and an LED display.
That single button is used to control the board in various ways. The first thing this button does is turn the WowGo AT2 on and off by holding the button down. A single click will allow you to switch between four different speed modes. Double clicking changes the board’s direction. The LED screen helps with checking your speed and the thumbwheel helps you control it. Overall, it is a simple design and easy to operate.
Hobbywing Upgraded ESC
The Hobbywing ESC in the WowGo AT2 electric skateboard includes newly upgraded hardware and software. Essentially, this device is responsible for the programming which allows the electric skateboard to function. The new upgrades make riding the WowGo AT2 a more powerful and enjoyable experience.

Our Experience With The WowGo AT2 Electric Skateboard
For this review to be complete, we had to test the board ourselves.
The first thing we noticed was the confidence increase after feeling the bounce and the grip. Whether it was the bamboo or the fiberglass, the board definitely has some flexibility and sturdiness to it. We knew we were good to go before we made any sharp turns or tough terrain came our way.
In terms of setup, it’s pretty straight forward. The remote control is easy to use and features an on and off switch. Setting up riding parameters is not too confusing, but if you’re struggling, the user manual can walk you through. Once you’re satisfied with your settings, you’re good to go.
The board rides smoothly on the street and off-road. The Smart OLED Remote is a little small, so make sure you’re wearing the attached wrist wrap at all times. Also, there’s rumblings about the wheels having issues. We have not experienced that yet, but will be sure to update this article when and if we do.
Overall, this is a great electric skateboard and a pleasure to ride!
Overall, the WowGo AT2 Electric Skateboard is a great contender if you’re on the market for a quality off-road electric skateboard. The flexible deck, the ability to switch from all terrain, and the great acceleration and braking makes this longboard truly special. The AT2 offers a high precision and a high performance riding experience at a reasonable price.
