The Riptide employs multiple types of braking technologies that allow it to smoothly and quickly slow down and come to a complete stop.  This includes integrating both regenerative braking and active braking.


The Riptide also has variable braking strength, which means that you have more dynamic control over braking speed than an on-or-off pre-programmed braking curve used by some other brands.


Due to proprietary circuitry the board still has effective (though limited) downhill braking even when the battery is fully charged. When the battery is fully depleted, braking is still possible.
