Marbel – The Lightest Electric Skateboard in the World

Some people say, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” while other’s say, “technology is a gift of God.” However you feel about the addition of electricity to a skateboard, the Marbel board is the world’s lightest electric skateboard, weighing in at just 9 lbs. Lighter than any other electric vehicle in the world, apart from perhaps a miniature electric remote control car, the Marbel can reach up to 20 MPH uphill. Just one charge can give it 10 real world miles, which should be enough to get you to work between pushing and electric assistance. If that wasn’t enough, it can connect to your smartphone to customize your riding style and even control the throttle of your board. Currently raising funds for its Kickstarter campaign, you can contribute by visiting the Marbel page and watch their video.
