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.

Made by our team of specialists, the design of the tire arc makes the KKA S1 the best skateboard on the market for turning on any surface.    

It has the following amazing adaptions:   

- 5-inch-high bullet PU tire (a regular skateboard has a 3/4-inch tire)  

- Wear-resistant 

 - Anti-corrosion  

- Perfect for poor road conditions  

The large and thick tires give the KKA S1 the ability to adapt faster to rough terrain and make your journey as smooth as possible.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The hub motor gives the KKA the possibility to have a high adoption to chassis and gives it a high-barrier capability.

The KKA S1 is a solution to the biggest problem of skateboards - being seen. You can't go out during the night with a normal skateboard without risking not being seen by a car. This awesome electric skateboard offers front LED movements and taillight to make sure that you get safe to your destination.

- Brake  

- Reverse

- Drive  

As you can see in the pictures, it also has a power button below it. What's more, the Bluetooth controlled balance allows the skateboard to adapt to the weight of the rider.

Our company started with a simple idea: to reinvent transportation by creating a top-notch brand for our customers. We started our story in Las Vegas where we strived to lead the technology of boards. In 2015, we gave it a shot and we founded Better Wheels with the end-goal of shaking up the personal mobility industry. Following 2017, we created the "KKA" brand which stands for "Ok, Cool, America!" hoping to make it America's New Transportation.

We aimed high and went for a continuous pursuit of detail, high quality products and outstanding service. Here at KKA we aim to make perfect products for you.

I think we can all agree that skateboards have undergone many changes over the last couple of years. They went from classic skateboards to the creation of pennies, longboards and many other creations. However, there aren't so many skateboarders due to the low-safety measures they offer. Reduced balancing, high friction and poor aerodynamics are what drives people away from skateboards. There was much room for improvement in terms of turning, balancing and using it in poor climates.


Once we saw the opportunity, we went straight for it. We saw that it's time for skateboards to provide the same lightweight and freestyle skating while also being modern, safe and fit for everyone.

That's how we got to the KKA S1 - a reliable electric skateboard that, combined with all of its components, creates the perfect way of transport. It's been in research and testing for years and we finally created a flawless skateboard. The KKA S1 is minimalistic, stylish, modern and last but not least, fashionable.

 

We reinvented the skateboard, while keeping its core components. We've made a better, faster and safer way of transportation while also making it durable, stronger and superior to anything else.

This amazing invention, the KKA S1 is not something that appeared out of nowhere. The first prototype was launched back in 2014 and received a lot of productive criticism and an overwhelming response from the community. All of these ideas and suggestions are what made the KKA S1 after carefully following every idea. This experience has led us to have a better perspective of what regular skateboarders want from a modern skateboard. They want it fast, reliable and flexible, allowing them to continuously stay on it without leaving the board.  

Simpler, this revolutionary skateboard allows you to do everything you could do with a regular skateboard, safer and faster. Having in mind its awesome steering and body frame, together with its high quality materials, it's perfect for both road and off-road trips. Compared to conventional skateboards, the KKA S1 stands out due to its amazing weight-balancing and dynamic cornering features.

The introduction of KKA S1 to the skateboarding community has led to an overwhelming response, and it is becoming popular every day. In fact, considering its potential, features and sporty dynamism, we see it replacing the conventional skateboards to a sizeable percentage in coming years.  

KKA S1 does not require any specialized training or weeks of experience to be able to ride on it. Like any skateboard step on it, push and ride. However, for advanced sports and riding actions, practice makes a man perfect.

 

 Although it has a battery in it, it won't bother you at all. We've designed the case to make it feel light and maneuverable. Of course, you can also use the board with the battery empty, while using the same features, without the remote-controlling. The lights used are incredibly durable and can easily be changed if needed.

The KKA S1 is perfect for any type of adventurer. Whether you're skateboarding to get to work or you are an adrenaline-filled enthusiast and no matter the age, no matter the distance, this electric skateboard is your safest choice!

Once introduced to the community, the KKA S1 has received an amazingly positive feedback and becomes more popular each day. Considering all of its features, we hope that it will replace the conventional skateboard within a couple of years.

Unlike regular skateboards, the KKA S1 doesn't need any kind of training or skateboarding experience. Step on it, push and ride. Even for advanced sports, its much easier to learn and to practice than with a conventional skateboard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

KKA S1 production model will be the lightest, most efficient - and most fun way to snowboard around your streets. Special pricing is only available to our Kickstarter visionaries as a thank-you for joining this movement.

 

 

Be Part of the Revolution

We want YOU to join us in changing the world and help us reinvent the skateboard as we know it. Our goal is to make skateboarding accessible for any person, regardless of their age. We are on the verge of being the next thing and we hope that you won't miss the opportunity to be part of this revolution.

Research and adapting to change is vital if survival is sought. To a common buyer, KKA S1 is the most trust-worthy way of transport and by far the safest as we have spent countless nights and days and hundreds of hours over schedule so we can test the S1 and bring you a perfect experience.

Currently, we're aiming to research the battery mechanics as we want this skateboard to be even more durable and as lightweight as possible, while keeping all of its awesome features intact. However, for growth and many more improvements, we need your help.

KKA S1 is not only our passion and dream - it represents an opportunity to change the skateboarding sport forever. It can make skateboarding available for everyone while also providing a reliable travel equipment. Regardless of age, the S1 is the perfect commuting device for you AND your family!

We have a keen interest in skateboarding and have many more ideas, however, they will require YOUR help in order for us to improve.

Risks and challenges

The KKA S1, an advanced and very popular product, there are often delays into full scale production. Luckily, we've been working with amazing suppliers and competent manufacturers to make it happen in time.

Our relationship with the manufacturers is unique as we have worked with them a lot of times before. They have never let us down and have proven the ability to foresee complications, therefore being ready for any problems and solving them before causing any harm. Therefore, with minimal to zero risks and almost no challenges, KKA S1 is the safest project to invest in.

All certifications and tests are projected early yet timely in order to assure top-quality control. Please drop any questions or feedback that you have as we're always eager to listen and help!
