A revolutionary combination of portability and power. Imagine 2000 watts (2.6 horsepower) on a 12 lb. longboard. You can do your favorite downhill tricks… going uphill. Or carve and carve… without ever pushing. More time riding and practicing, less time pushing and walking. “We started with our favorite longboard components, like a Loaded Vanguard, Bear Grizzly 852s, Otang 80A In Heats, and Jehu bearings. While the final product’s trucks may change, the rest of those components will be there. We don’t believe that adding a motor means compromising your setup”.

That’s because in addition to being an amazing ride, it’s also the perfect last-mile vehicle. When it comes to short trips, you can finally stop worrying about parking, traffic, garages, gas stations, pedaling, bike locks, pushing, and hills.

Run quick errands, commute to work, get around campus, or link up with public transit, up to 6 miles before recharging or swapping your battery.  But most importantly, you’ll enjoy the ride everyday. “We can electronically limit the top speed without sacrificing the power you need to tackle hills.

Steep San Francisco hills become easy to climb.  And on top of that, we’ve added regenerative braking, accomplished using the motors.  That means it’s easy to learn, easy to maneuver, and easy to control your speed, all while recharging the battery. Light is great for lots of reasons, like better handling and acceleration.

But it also means unprecedented portability. Carry it into a classroom, through the lobby to your office, upstairs to your apartment, onto a bus, or even aboard an airplane. With a capable electric vehicle that weighs a mere 12 lbs (prototype weight), you’ll change how you think about vehicles”. For more information, we invite you to visit the links below.
