Has anyone heard of zenboard technology? They’re about to launch a kickstarter and it looks like one of the coolest production boards I’ve seen.
It’s a carbon fiber deck with planetary gear hubs and which appear to have a good amount of 74a thane around them. The board is also controlled by what they call flowcontrol, which senses your body weight to accelerate. Seems interesting, what are your thoughts?
Stary remake. Flowcontrol? The more unproved concepts, the dodgier this feels. Lost count of the amount of kickstarters that fail to deliver, XTND is another one that was hyped as fuck. Floating remote charge dock station and “Artificial Inteligence” inside the board…loool. They still havn’t delivered, soon two years later.
On a positive note tho. The planetary gear motor is a good concept, it will be noisy as fuck with straight gears, but good concept nonetheless.
Like the reduced gearing. No remote no way. I’d be jerking around all over the place with that shit. I move around all over the board when I’m riding. @anon42702729 mate I think so. Sure they were at that Melbourne tech show last year. Much less refined product but the same weight concept.
Well my guess would be high costs, low income. 22k isn’t much to build such a complicated product.
I went to check the campaign and there’s no way this board goes 22 miles with this deck even if it was full of batteries (which apparently is not the case as it requires sensors)
