What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

BackFire Team
BackFire Team

The idea of making an Electric Skateboard initially came up from Randy and Jerry about 3 years ago in 2014. Before that, Backfire was found back in 2009, specialized in skateboarding industry including street skateboards and long boards, the company distributed regular skateboards and longboards to over 20 different counties. While we got into the Electric skateboards area with our exciting new ideas, we noticed there were some similar concepts from the pioneer and followers already. However, there are several key things making Backfire different from others:

- We knew skaters better with our specialized expeirences in the past. We knew what skaters like and want, and we care about the quality but we also want to make it more affordable to more people rather than some expensive units but only few people could afford in the market. It took us a couple of years to design and test, and come up the second generation of Backfire Electric board, a mature product with consistent quality and good price for the mass production. 

- We pursue better performance of the board: Backfire is proved with more than 1000 hours testing the samples that  our board could reach top speed of 40 km/hr and last 25 km of curious range.  

Design and Test
Design and Test

- We focus on details : We know the wheels will be worn out after a period of riding, our new design makes it much easier to replace the wheels (kindly like change tires for car) , keeping the whole board in good performance.

The funds raised here will all be used for purchasing the models to mass produce the boards, so we can distribute this fantastic product to more people in the world. In additional, we will continue designing and improving our product for better quality and performance but lower cost. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the first 50 backers, we want to deliver you something cool for fun.

Risks and challenges

RISK
Safety
Please make sure you always wear a helmet and your personal protective gear just in case. Please make sure you get used to the board before you speed up. Do not ride the board out of your skills and always care about your surroundings.

LEGALITY
Please check your local legal requirement of the electric vehicles and electric skateboards before you use it, the lows and regulations vary by countries, states or counties.

Other Risk or Challenges
Backfire Electric skateboard is very close to the stage of mass production. We have sourced good suppliers and manufacturers who make the components for us. Certain suppliers might have different lead time and their own peak season production circle, our biggest challenge is to control the lead time better. To be able to do so, we need collect enough funds in front to pay demand to meet the suppliers' MOQ (minimum order qty) requirement to have the suppliers prioritize our purchase order.
