It's been a few months since our last update and a lot has happened since then.
Here is the update :
We just received the first shipment of E1 and we started to deliver to our first customers! Can't wait for their feedback and see people riding our electric skateboards!
Two weeks ago we were exhibiting at CES Asia in Shanghai. We presented two new very exciting products that will be released later this year.
The NIMBUS was made for people that won't sacrifice either weight and portability or speed and torque. We kept it single drive but designed a new 600W hub motor. We also increased the battery capacity to match the motor's consumption. Here is the performance we currently have :
Speed : 25 Km/h. We believe it is more than enough for a relatively small skateboard.
Range : 7 Km. It is clearly too short to match our expectations. We are testing different types of battery cells and improving the software settings. We will not release it unless we reach 10Km range in real conditions.
Weight : 4,7 Kg. After testing it in real conditions we believe that it is still light enough to carry it in the subway whenever needed.
Charge time : 45 min using the fast charger, 2h30 using the regular one.
At CES over 100 people tested it and the result was extremely positive. We believe that if we manage to increase the range while keeping the same weight and performance, the Nimbus will be an excellent product.
The POCKET ROCKET was made for people who want to feel like driving a supercar: You get scared before reaching the to speed. The Pocket Rocket is a dual hub motor electric skateboard. 800 watts of power, directly in the wheels. Keep in mind that its length is below 750 mm, so the feeling of speed comes weigh earlier than on a longboard. The point is definitely not to hit the world speed record, but to get a lot of adrenaline. The weight and range are not optimal and there is still a lot of work to turn this prototype into a real product. In fact the two motors consume a lot of battery and we are trying to figure out how to keep a long battery range without sacrificing too much its weight.
The CES was a great experience for us. The NIMBUS was very appreciated by visitors, media and potential distributors.
