"Kickstarter is a great opportunity to test the market," said General Manager, George Li. "What we learn from it will allow us to fine tune the BajaBoard in preparation for its planned release in 2015."
The BajaBoard is a patent pending 4WD all-terrain electric skateboard, with a total motor rating of 16hp. It is the first skateboard in the world to feature a comprehensive suspension system with shock absorption, independent 4-wheel steering, electronic differential, and dual throttle control.
Thanks to its technical features, the BajaBoard offers outstanding stability and handling over all types of terrain. It overcomes hills effortlessly and has a self-restricted top speed of 31mi/h. It is also the first electric skateboard designed to handle jumps and drops typically reserved for mountain bike riders.
With everything included, the BajaBoard comes in at under 44lb, and fits into the trunk of an average car.
With its advanced design and capability, the BajaBoard looks to open up new possibilities on the action sports scene, as well as in the field of low emissions personal transportation.
BajaBoard is an Australian start-up dedicated to developing the world's most advanced and capable electric skateboard. The team consists of six young professionals working together with the goal of making BajaBoard an exciting new active sport icon.
