Casey Neistat just released his first look at the Boosted Mini S. Within 30 minutes, more than 110,000 people tuned in, and so many hopped over to the Boosted website that they crashed our server! Not to worry, we were back up and running in no time.
Here’s a recap of Casey’s first look:
Right off the bat Casey lets his viewers know that nothing has changed the way he thrives in New York City more than his Boosted board. Boosted’s longboard, Casey says, is like a Cadillac—with it you own the streets. But when travelling or doing anything but ride, it can be a bit unruly. He offers a side-by-side comparison of the Boosted V2, a standard street skateboard, and the Boosted Mini to give viewers a sense of just how much more portable the Mini is than its predecessor.
Casey notes that the all the power of earlier Boosted boards is still there in the mini, but that the ride feel is something altogether new. (Note: after watching Casey give the Mini a whirl in his studio, Marques Brownlee couldn’t wait to hop on and feel for himself.) Out in the streets, Casey immediately makes use of the Mini’s kicktail, riding off a sidewalk and into the road with ease. He provides viewers with a top-down POV that alternates between V2 and the Mini to show just how compact the new deck’s profile is: Where the V2 extends far past both Casey’s front and back feet, the Mini perfectly fits Casey’s shoulder-width stance.
Back in his studio Casey gives viewers a breakdown of the shocking price of Mini S—only $749! He couldn’t believe it when he first found out.
We’re so excited Casey is stoked on everything the Mini has to offer. As he says, “There are electric skateboards, and then there are Boosted boards.”
Casey says he’ll be back soon with a comprehensive review of the Mini. For now check out his first look video and stay tuned for more!
