IvoryBoards are closing in on their pledge goal required to take their new high-performance yet affordable electric skateboard into manufacture. Halfway through their Kickstarter campaign the team is under $5,000 away from raising the AU$50,000.
Watch the promotional video below to learn more about the IvoryBoards and the unique design which provide high performance at an affordable price.
To ensure our riders are safe on our board we have included several safety features. The first of which is integrating ‘Low’ and ‘High’ power settings to allow users to ride based on their skill level by adjusting the board’s acceleration and speed. Next, we integrated front lights so that you can have a clear view at night and stay visible to cars. We then equipped the board with regenerative braking which allows for descents to be safely navigated as well as for riders to safely travel alongside other vehicles. Finally, the board was designed to be water resistant meaning you can ride it knowing that a wet patch or a bit of rain won’t ruin it.
We wanted the IvoryBoard to work exactly like a standard longboard when powered off, so we built the motors directly into the wheels rather than using a belt system. This hub motor design allowed us to create a streamlined, efficient and frictionless ride that glides freely like a normal skateboard. This means that if the board runs out of power or you just feel like going old school, you can simply push it like a standard longboard for a smooth ride.
Although the app for the board is currently in development, it still requires thorough testing to ensure its safety as well as approval from the Android and Apple app stores. As such, the application will become available to our users within 6 months of the end of our Kickstarter campaign.
