A new skateboard design!
And it looks like a beast!
At 28lbs, this is as heavy as some electric scooters!
The claimed range is between 18-24 miles. Oddly, a top speed of only 15mph (is it intentionally throttled by the manufacturer?).
I’ve watched this video more than once and still can’t get over what I’m looking at:
After seeing everything that’s basically a variation on the same theme, this comes along with something entirely new.
It also proves that if you have a product that is so different from what others have, you don’t need specs in the promo video to get people curious!

Well done, EcoRider!

Then someone did this:
So, EcoRider took (stole?) the BMW design and the electric conversion idea and put them together?
