The successor to one of the most widely acclaimed boards, the Backfire Zealot, the Zealot S offers a premium, smooth, powerful ride all for under $1000. The Zealot S is a very enjoyable board to ride, the power delivery is smooth and strong and the board still feels very nimble. The deck has a nice amount of flex without being unstable. All in all, it is a very solid and well-rounded board backed by Backfire’s excellent customer service.

Pros:

  • Smooth throttle/brake curves
  • Build Quality
  • Customer Service

Cons:

  • Real world range is more like 20 miles instead of claimed 24
  • Motors and ESC get unreasonably hot
  • Off-the-line acceleration may feel too soft for spirited riders
