If you commute by car or public transport, switching to cycling, walking or running to work is one of the best things you can do to make yourself happier. You heard us. Happier. Your fitness increases, you become healthier, clearer in the head, you’ll certainly save money and in almost any city it’s a hell of a lot easier than dealing with daily traffic. Skateboarding to work however was never really a commuter option, until now. Introducing the M1 by InBoard Technology, an electric skateboard so incredibly fun you’ll not only want to use it all weekend – you’ll want to ride to work with it too.
Before now, electric skateboards were an expensive risk that almost always ended in disappointment. They might have been too slow, heavy or ran out of battery too quickly with no options to charge. InBoard Technology addressed all these options, and released the M1 – the most superior electric skateboard on the market. Here’s a few things we love about their latest model the M1, which is much more than a novelty toy.
A SAFER COMMUTE
The M1 includes built-in front-facing LED lights and rear-facing red lights, an innovation that’s long overdue. The lights ensure drivers or pedestrians can clearly see you in both directions.
A BETTER BATTERY
Other electric skateboards suffer because their batteries can’t be easily removed—which means having to find an outlet each time they die. Inboard has designed the world’s first electric skateboard with swappable battery packs. The PowerShift battery can be swapped in seconds. Carry an extra battery in your bag and swap it into the M1 to extend your range. Plus the battery is safe for air travel.
Are there a couple of hills in your neighbourhood you need to climb? High speed matched with maximum stability can see you getting to the top of some pretty steep gradients. With a top speed of 35km, you’ll be at work in no time. The board uses a simple handheld joystick style remote, to accelerate and brake. Best of all is the App so you can sync the board with your mobile phone. Controlling every aspect, to adjust settings, view battery levels and use the Touch Throttle in place of the remote.
