Kickr – retro-fit your longboard with some electric go-go power



Who doesn’t love longboarding? I personally love it, though my track record isn’t anything to brag about. However, kicking a longboard for a long (no pun intended) amount of time can prove to be a very tiring activity. Wouldn’t it be much better if the board kicked itself along instead? Well read on folks.Introducing the all new Kickr – a new add on gadget that will turn your existing skateboard into an all new electric board that will do 20mph without you having to lift a finger (or a foot?). At last, a way to enjoy your longboarding sessions without getting all sweaty and pooped.

The nifty little retro-fit motor does not require any complex installation, it’s universal and will mount onto any existing board without a problem. The drivetrain comes with a throttle pad attached to the strap, just step on it to accelerate, and remove pressure to slow it down. Kickr is now up for funding on Kickstarter. It has already passed its funding goal, so secure one for yourself before all deals are gone. Yes, we know the purists will be horrified, but think of the fun factor.
