Diego Bermudez and Marvle Boards have designed a low-cost electric skateboard which is capable of propelling the rider for over 25 miles on a single charge and is available to back at a limited time price of just $599, offering you a saving of the recommended retail price of $699 once the Kickstarter campaign has finished.
MarvleIs looking to raise $30,000 over the next 27 days to take electric skateboard into production. Watch the promotional video below to learn more about its construction and electronic propulsion system which is capable of being recharged whenever you break.
The on-board 12 cell lithium battery is good for over 1000 charge cycles and includes a battery protection system and the plug and play charge port. As developers explain a little more about their electric skateboard design :
What we love about surfing and snowboarding is the effortless feeling of the ride. We wanted to make sure that Marvle Board gave us the same feeling, so minimum weight and maximum latitude was vital when we started prototyping. The powerful 2,200 watt motor delivers performance that will let you powerfully carve on the street and on hills.
Most importantly, we designed the Marvle Board with an astounding range of over 25 miles. We wanted to make sure that the board never dies on the long rides, daily commutes, or when cruising on campus. Leave the charger at the door because there no need to worry if the battery will last all day, because the Marvle Board can.
We are in the final design phase for the Marvle Board. All the internals (Motor, battery system, speed controller) have been tested thoroughly and are ready for large volume manufacturing. We are working diligently to produce an aesthetically pleasing, powerful board. With the funding from Kickstarter, we will be able to finish the aesthetic design of the Marvle board, and place bulk orders for the components.
