When we hear about electric vehicles, we often find that the conversation is about cars, but there is a mode of transport that is smaller, much smaller in fact! This is the skate deck from Boosted Boards and it is the smallest and lightest electric vehicle around. It weighs just twelve pounds and can reach 20 mph easily with a range of up to six miles.
Here what the team have to say about the Boosted Board long board;
Imagine 2000 watts (2.6 horsepower) on a 12 lb. long board. You can do your favourite 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 favourite long board 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.
The retail price is expected to be around the $1200 (£740) backers who pledge over $1,100 (£678) on the Kickstarter site, will get $100 (£65) off the retail price!
