We just reached our Kickstarter target! hooray!
THANKS HEAPS TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED US!
Now we want to reach our stretch goals. #1, #2 & #3
This thread is dedicated specifically to goal #3… the adjustable angle base plate.
This will be a world first for electric skateboards, The idea is to allow the user to configure the handling properties of their ride depending on what they plan to be doing during their day of riding.
Example 1: You want to go out for a very cruisy relaxed carving session at the beach. You really want to get low and throw your weight into some turns, well you simply adjust the angle of the base plate so that the tilt angle of the deck suits your riding style & desired turning radius.
Example 2: You plan to go as fast as possible in a very straight line & want to minimize speed wobbs, so you use the angle adjustment to dampen the turning response at the trucks. This way when your weight shifts around on top of the deck it has less impact on your turns improving stability at high speed.
NOTE: All Raptor 2 pre-orders will get these rewards, doesn’t matter if you ordered on our website first, however, we must reach the targets & you must submit the order before the Kickstarter ends!!
