Boosted Boards – The World’s Lightest Electric Vehicle [VIDEO]

 

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.

About technology? It’s similar to what you’ll find in modern electric cars and motorcycles, but smaller and lighter than anything ever made. It’s so new, it’s even patent-pending.

– Twin brushless motors. They’re more expensive and harder to implement than conventional DC motors, but they’re also amazingly powerful for their size and weight.
– Lithium batteries. We only use lithium, and we only use the best. That means plenty of range and power without the weight and bulk of normal batteries.
– Custom electronics. Our years of engineering experience led us to design and build our proprietary on-board computers, motor controllers, and software from scratch. The result is powerful and responsive, yet quiet, compact, and easy to control.
– Fast charging. Our electronics and batteries can handle extremely fast charging, going from empty to full in less than two hours.
