Right off the bat I must say this board is insane value in its category. Shipping took slightly longer than advertised but I live in New Zealdnd, at the end of supply chains, so this was expected. Unfortuanately the board arrived faulty and would not charge. Support was easy to reach and Gerald was quick to answer and help work the problem out. After a month of trials and new parts we finally got the baord working and its insane! The top speed is almost 50Km/h, but stays stable. The range is also a solid 40-45km on the 6in wheels even when I'm riding rough in cold-ish weather (15C). The motors barely heat up even on long inclines, and the battery is quite good, even thought the acceleration is rather limited even in speed mode 4, the board can easily power up steep hills at 15-20Km/h where my onewheel would struggle. Some shortcomings of the board are plastic pulleys for the wheels, I was expecting metal, a few loose screws holding the enclosure plate, but unless you need this to be watertight (and it isn't) thats not a big issue, and also its impossible to fit the carry handle to the rear withought modification due to the brake light. Also the battery indicator rather quickly jumps from two bars to 20% and then super quick to 10%, abttery sag only sets in around 10% aswell. The biggest positive in my opinion is the included headlight, it may seem like a small gimic, but let me tell you that thing is amazing. Super bright, and the battery lasts 4 hours in my experience, thats ages. The remore charge lasts rather long aswell, only requering a charge very 3rd or 4th board charge. Ive done 300km on the board so far and it seems to be doign great. No offroading jsut yet, but I think it will be able to handle light trails.
Final thoughts: This thing is insane value, I'd even say its better than a Hadean in value. Only time will tell if this Hercules is worth the money. I'd give 5 stars but the board not charging for a month pains.
