In a quest to find the ultimate solution for urban/peri-urban mobility to shorten (walking) trips between the appartment, the public transportation and wherever you’re going in a convenient way, I tried to design a light-weight, compact electric foldable longboard.
It is composed of a high-quality 216Wh battery, 2 hub motors and a VESC drive system.
Measuring 43x22x21 cm and an acceptable 7.5kg when folded, it fits in any decent backpack and yet doesn’t compromise performance with 12-15km range and 30km top speed on a 80cm board.
You can find all build details (and diverse reflections about electro-micro-mobility) in the hackaday page
Here are a few pictures :
