The Boosted Board Dual+ is a great, all-around board that was just unseated by a handful of points as the overall top performer. This board has fantastic brakes, is super speedy, and can power most of the hills that you will find. This board also has the added benefit of having a 99 watt-hour battery, just under the 100 watt-hour limit allowed for air travel. Performing well across the board, the only metric where this model didn't do exceedingly well was in range, where it only ranked about average. All in all, this is an excellent board that won't disappoint, and fully earned its Editors' Choice award.
We tested the Dual+, which has about 33% more power than the Dual. This equates to an overall faster top speed, and the ability to climb steeper hills than the Dual. It may be well worth saving a few hundred bucks with the Dual if you aren't a speed demon, and don't need to climb any monster hills. Both of these boards have the option to upgrade to the extended battery, greatly increasing the range of the board. We tested with the standard battery, so you could expect a much longer range, probably in the neighborhood of 60-70% further with the extended pack. However, the extended pack will make the board heavier, as well as pushing it over the TSA limit for flying. Great if you want to go further on the ground, not so great if you want to travel and fly with the board. Choose wisely….
