Electric skateboards cool – it’s official – but they are ten-a-penny these days. If you want to find a good, China is the place to look.
But do not worry, we went back and did a search for you.
On our TechCrunch event in Beijing earlier this month, I hung out with a team of old, very cool company of China’s electronics hub of Shenzhen. Rex Chen, CEO, took some time off from the show to give us a demonstration of the board of the Old -. Which raised an extremely impressive $ 740,000 on Kickstarter earlier this year
Not only advice Old quickly – with a top speed of 18.6 miles per hour – but it is serious, serious light thanks to battery hidden inside the board, and fine-motor built in one of the rear wheels. I have already said, a pocket control that – fortunately, for those who like a little skill as me? – Includes brake
All of this combines to make one of the least assuming motorized skateboard in the world.
The good news is that if you missed Kickstarter campaign and as a form of government, you can go ahead and order one of Stary.io, where they sell for $ 899 Fair warning, though, it will not ship until March 2016. – However, if you are driving, it’s damn cool and worth the wait
