News from the team!
Since the last update we’ve taken a very close eye on the production of all the parts. The good news is that we received all of them ! Well, except the trucks, that are still in production right now.

Why the trucks take so long ?
We decided to redesign the trucks to increase the strength of the interface with the motor. To reach our expectations, we had to modify the truck axle. Now our truck is insanely strong but the truck axle is quite sophisticated and its production is very slow. This axle is the one reason why we are all still waiting. We make no compromise on quality and now that we tested the truck, we know we've made the right choice.
Last week, Quentin went to Barcelona for 3 days to produce photos and videos. The photos are amazing, and we are making a small video to share all the thrill of riding an Elwing Board. We can’t wait to share it with you!
Here are a few shots from behind the scenes :
What’s the next step ?
Gael and the technical team are controlling the quality of all the parts, and they will start pre-assembling as soon as the QC is done. Quentin will join them in China early June to focus 100% on the final assembly (with the trucks), tests and quality control. Once we validate these final steps, we’ll be ready to ship !
We will keep you posted once we know the exact shipping date. Meanwhile, please check your shipping address and update it if needed!
Thank you for your trust and patience !!
