Self-balancing Electric Skateboard Can Hit 17 mph

 |  |  |  August 20, 2018


If you are into skateboarding, but want to do it with as little effort as possible, this might be just the ticket. The Autobalancing Electric Skateboard lets riders zoom along at speeds up to 17 mph while the skateboard does the hard part of keeping them upright.

The self-balancing board has a 36V battery and a 250W motor and it promises enough grunt to make it up inclines. It can ride up to 11 miles per charge, and it takes about 3 hours to juice up. It has 6-inch tires up front, and actually looks a bit like one of those hoverboards that was so popular a couple of years back – but with an elongated riding platform and a third wheel in back.

Riders control the skateboard using a provided wireless remote or a free app for iOS or Android devices. Either option gives control over speed, brakes, integrated Bluetooth speakers and the lights. A dashboard integrated into the top of the skateboard shows speed, mileage, and battery power. It’s available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $699,95.
