General:hello@chic-pi.com

Founded in 2007, CHIC is the pioneer of the self-balancing industry who released the very first smart hoverboard in 2014. Chic is headquartered in Hangzhou with operations in Shenzhen, Los Angeles. Chic made a strategic decision to be headquartered in China in order to take advantage of China’s robust and ever-innovating supply chain.  

In 2015, the company introduced its first hoverboard in China -- the board got popular over the world immediately. After years of R&D investment, CHIC has obtained over 186 patents and intellectual properties globally.  

As the patent holder of the first generation hoverboard, Chic aims to make the hoverboard more fun, more precise, and absolutely safe. That’s the reason why we’ve devoted ourselves to making the Pi during the past 2 years. .

Why Kickstarter?  

We all know about Hoverboards, they sold in the millions last year, some claim it will soon be one of the dominant means of local transportation. It could be... if it’s done the right way, if we can find the right balance. The first generation of hoverboards was fun, but lacked precision and some were even produced by amateurs, who gave this great product a bad reputation. 

As the patent holder of the first generation hoverboard, Chic aims to make the hoverboard more fun, more precise, and absolutely safe. That’s the reason why we’ve devoted ourselves to making the Pi during the past 2 years.  

We’re starting our campaign on Kickstarter because we believe the backer community will play a crucial role in the development of Pi. Through Kickstarter, we're not just launching our self-balancing scooters to early backers, but rather forging relationships with a passionate community of innovative individuals.  

Dear Pi's Kickstarter, your feedback will help us and your support will enable us to reach our goals and beyond! If you’re ready for an hoverboard revolution, please support our campaign and spread the word! Let’s revolutionize it!

 

Risks and challenges

We are really excited about launching the revolutionary hoverboard with unibody and aluminum casing battery, and we’re proud that we have our own manufacturing line to make sure the mass production is in control, and glad to tell you that the molds of Pi are ready. However, we know that the most important part of our process is that we fulfill our promise to you, and deliver your hoverboards on time!

1)For the shipping
As Pi’s gross weight is 22LBS (10.6KG) and the Li-ion Battery is 36V 4.3Ah, some countries’ custom has a strict regulation over the hoverboard with battery. Please note that shipping to any country outside North America may be delayed or canceled depending on the feasibility of local product approval requirements or local import regulations. In a case of cancellation, we will refund your pledge. There may be additional duties, fees or taxes raised by the authorities in your country. You may need to take care of them yourself when receiving the shipment.

2)For the UL 2272 Certification
As Pi’s aluminum casing battery is totally different from the traditional hoverboard’s battery, although we’ve designed the battery to meet the UL2272 standard and we are in the process to be certified, this will take some time to get approved. We’re absolutely confident that Pi will get the certification, and we’ll keep you updated.

We are excited to bring Pi to life and get these revolutionary hoverboards into your hands!

Thank you,
The Chic Team
