Skateboarding has never been more popular than it is today, and while there are many kinds of skateboards, most ‘serious’ skateboarders don’t have just one, they have a few. There are skateboards designed for speed, others for tricks and then there are basic all-purpose boards.
But now, there is a new skateboard in town that has technology integrated into it that propels the skater forward with an electric motor, it’s called Blink. Weighing only nine pounds, it is the lightest electric motorized skateboard on the market.
Powered by an 800w electric motor that you operate with a hand-held controller, you can travel up to six miles on a full battery, and it only takes one hour to charge! The Blink has two speeds, slow and kinda fast (15mph), and sports attention-getting LED lights under the board, which makes it easy to see the skater at night.
All in all, if you live on campus, or you have to commute to work, but don’t have a vehicle, or there is no parking available near your work downtown, then this might solve your transportation problems in a ‘blink’ of an eye, and a swipe of your card.
