High performance electric skateboard made from bamboo
23 February 2017
The Ivoryboard is one of the cheapest electric boards on the market, with a top speed of 25mph, a range of 18 miles and is made from bamboo for added flexibility.
Ivoryboard hopes to make electric skateboards as accessible to as many people as possible so the future of transportation becomes smarter. By partnering with Onan and Shredlights, the Ivoryboard is among some of the best performing boards on the market whilst starting for a price of just £441. This is far below the prices of other boards and matches or betters them on specifications.
The battery pack is removable meaning that the boards range can easily be double or tripled with extra packs. The batteries have been designed to be easily snapped in and out whilst remaining durable.
Regenerative braking has been integrated meaning that every time the board brakes, it recharges automatically and adds to its range. Two riding modes are possible using a customisable remote so users can pick their riding style; low for soft acceleration and a limited top speed and high for full acceleration and top speed. The remote includes a finger hold so it can be gripped safely whilst riding.
It’s made from high quality bamboo and fibre glass to ensure maximum flexibility and a comfortable ride. It’s also water resistant so it can be ridden anywhere in all weathers. Powerful front lights have been integrated into the board so it can also be ridden at night safely.
The motors have been designed directly into the wheels rather than using a belt system. This creates a streamlined, efficient and frictionless ride that glides freely like a normal skateboard. It also means that if the board runs out of power, riders can simply push it along like a standard board.
