You should compare the r1x to the boosted mini X

I currently have a Raptor 2, boosted v2 dual plus and an Ownboard w1. I am looking to get a shotgboare but an torn between the r1x and the boosted mini x. Thoughts?

The riptide r1 I’ve ridden already. I loved the deck and the weight, but disliked the remote and braking. So hopefully they changed everything quite a bit. It seems this new version is much better….
