For BPV’s, the top speed depends on the ability of the rider. The better your carving technique and the stronger your muscles the faster you will go. Beginners tend to ride between 4 to 6 mph, while more experienced carvers cruise at 8 to 10 mph. Some very fit and capable riders reach speeds in the mid-teens, and it goes without saying that you’ll pick up even more speed going downhill.
Top speeds of electric models vary, and Trikke Tech posts the following specs on their website:
- Pon-e 48V: 17 mph
- Pon-e 36V Lite: 15 mph
- Freedom: 15 mph
- Colt: 13 mph
