The black, grey and clear grip tape provides state of the art support, the tape being the best in the industry.
The wheel bearings are oh-so smooth, almost buttery like. The board has no flexing, owing to its sleek design and you can feel each pebble, bump or vibration, just like regular skateboards from your childhood. The ride is soundless and fluidic, to say the least.
The board has a good foot space too, being 31.5 x 8.5 inches, suitable even for the tall riders, supporting up to 250 lbs. in weight. Acton has done quite a job on the Blink S2, making it look ultra-retro in design, yet having top and niche conduct.

Enough to give you 14 miles, it comes with a wireless remote control– serving as the accelerometer and brake. It has 3 ride modes and comes ready with four built in LED lights– one on every side.
With 20% incline rate of 12 degrees, it gives you crazy uphill pull. The Acton Blink S2 takes just an hour to charge, and its most important feature is that it has two motors, four lights, all running on standard Samsung Lithium Ion Batteries, packed in durable steel.
