The electric skateboard is pretty rad. I appreciate this gadget even though I can’t stand on a skateboard for more than 2 seconds without falling on my butt. The coolest thing about this electric skateboard is that it will carry a 240 pound person uphill. I can’t think of all the times that I’ve wanted to send a 240 lb person uphill just for fun to see the look on their face. Priceless.
Here’s what they have to say about it:
This is the electric skateboard that can accelerate to a top speed of 19 mph in three seconds. Powered by a 36-volt battery, the skateboard’s 600-watt motor provides enough horsepower to propel riders up to 240 lbs. over smooth terrain–even uphill. At a hefty 40 lbs., it is built as a classic longboard with a kicktail with 4″ diameter solid urethane wheels and flexible trucks allow you to carve 8′ turns. A patented handheld wireless trigger remote provides digital proportional control over your speed; pulling the trigger accelerates and moving it forward brakes. The 10 1/2″ wide, resin and maple veneer deck is textured with a non-skid surface that provides reliable footing. The rechargeable battery can be removed and provides a range of 10 miles from a four-hour charge using the included adapter.
Well there you have it. I recommend wearing a helmet. And, if you are one of those douchebags on youtube that put your pug, pet squirrel or frog on it, give them a helmet too. I mean, really. Safety first people.
