Skateboards are a much more convenient mode of transportation when you don’t have to propel yourself forward with your own legs. Especially going uphill, it’s just the worst.
Fortunately, the motorized skateboard is a thing that was figured out quite some time ago. And even more fortunately than that, the newer models of motorized skateboards are way better than the first ones invented!
What you’re looking at here is the cream of the crop!
The Arc Board hopes to be the world’s smallest and lightest electric skateboard. Essentially, the world’s most portable vehicle.
Weighing less than ten pounds, a single charge will carry you over 11 miles at speeds up to 15 miles per hour! It can even handle uphill grades of 15%!
Controlled by a small (and wireless) handheld remote, this really is a smart way to get around town or travel to your nearest train station.
