The ZBoard is the world’s first, weight-sensing electric skateboard. To ride simply lean forward on the front footpad to accelerate and lean back on the rear footpad to brake. The ZBoard is available in two trim packages, the Classic, with it’s Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) battery is good for 15+mph with a range of 5 miles, while the Pro features a Lithium Ion Phosphate (LiFePo4) battery which moves you at 17+ mph with a range of 10 miles. Prices are $500 and $800 respectfully.
Other features of both the Classic and the Pro are:
- 40″ long x 9.5″ wide deck
- Balanced Handle for Easy Portability
- Included 110V Wall Charger
- Off-Road Tires
- Individually Numbered Deck

We wouldn’t try taking this one in a skate park, but it would make a great beach path cruiser or town get around board.
