So you are sick of polluting the environment with your stinky CO2 emitting combustion engine beast? You have flicked that polluter off to some schmuck and have been riding around on some form of mass transit, or just using the feet you were born with, but still hanging out for just a bit further or faster coverage? If you want something you can throw into a locker, because there is never anywhere to lock your bike, or you live in a town where you cycles seat is constantly getting stolen then eglide may just have what you are looking for.
affordable, electric, personal skateboards after the jump
Our purpose is and has been to produce the world’s most high performance, reliable, and quality electric skateboards.
These things look pretty damn good. They will reach 20mph (in four seconds?!!?) utilising400 watt high torque electric motors, and will slow you just as fast with their electric brakes! The larger model long boards get over 12 miles on the flat (the short boards around 7). The are controlled by a cable connected remote to avoid interference.
I oculdn’t find anything on their site about charging them up but I would assume they just plug into a wall socket. Maybe only 110V?
Priced from $400 US they seem like a pretty good solution.
