      @Omar Romero - 1. I highly doubt that Lo King Yiu will be able to convince Kickstarter to lift the suspension. So far, out of the many campaigns which have been suspended, I have only witnessed two campaigns being revived.
      2. Even if Lo is somehow able to convince Kickstarter to revive this campaign, he will have to start from scratch zero backer and funding.

      @citiboi, I hope you’re right, that the suspension is permanent and final. I note that the creator doesn’t see it this way. Thank you.

      @Omar Romero - There is NO NEED to cancel your pledge. This campaign is already suspended and Kickstarter will not collect your pledge.

      Looks like this is the violation, possibly among others —

      “Throughout the process, creators owe their backers a high standard of effort, honest communication, and a dedication to bringing the project to life. At the same time, backers must understand that when they back a project, ***they’re helping to create something new — not ordering something that already exists.*** There may be changes or delays, and there’s a chance something could happen that prevents the creator from being able to finish the project as promised.”

      The product is already for sale (as reported) and is not proper under the KS platform.

      Please cancel my pledge. Under the ‘Terms of Use’ I’m allowed to do this BEFORE the end of the funding period:

      “You can change or cancel your pledge at any time before the project’s funding deadline (with one exception). You can increase, decrease, or cancel your pledge at any time during the campaign, with one exception. During the last 24 hours of the campaign, you can’t decrease or cancel your pledge without contacting customer support first — if that action would drop the project below its funding goal. Once the project has been funded, you can only cancel or change your pledge by making special arrangements directly with the creator.”

      This exact KKA S1 is already being sold in China. (see https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/KKA-4-wheel-electric-skateboard-hub_60717239456.html). Even the video is identical to that in the website. Of cos, the design is an exact copy of the BMW Streetcarver.

      The only reason why I backed this is that I managed to pledge for one at $699. BUT, I am still on the fence about the credibility of the creator, especially when he responded that he will be using Li-ion battery from Samsung. The Chinese manufacturer is NOT using Samsung battery.

      So, caveat emptor.

      Dear all,Don't Worry This is a misunderstanding we will communicate with kickstarter come back soon.

      Thanks. Samsung is definitely reliable. Otherwise, LG or Panasonic/Sanyo will be equally reliable.

    14. King Yiu, Lo Creator on

      @citiboi, As for Battery we test many battery, all top reputable Lithium-ion battery manufacturers, we use Samsung battery now, We still looking for better one.

      @King Yiu, Lo - Apparently, you overlooked my question.

      Please confirm if you are using 18650 Lithium-ion battery manufactured by LG or Samsung. If you are not, please identify the manufacturers of the Lithium-ion. As you are well aware, Lithium-ion batteries made by non-reputable manufacturers are unreliable and are more likely to explode.

      Do you select the questions you want to answer ? I think that it is important as a seller to give all the question an answer.
      It is quite simple to advice the backers if they will have to pay or not the custom clearance and pay extra duties.

      @citiboi we have Immerse KKA S1 in the water for 30 minutes. still working good.

      @Lo - WOW! IPX7? It is possible to immerse the KKA S1 in 1 m of water?? The iPhone X only has IPX7 rating.

      On a different note, any thoughts about having a real suspension system?

    24. King Yiu, Lo Creator on

      @Ricardo Barrios 7 IPX

      @Ricardo Barrios, i am sorry to heard your bad experience, we are different to other one-time Kickstarter project, we have made many years of scooter and electric skateboard, We have our own factories and r&d teams. In fact, KKA S1 is a very mature product after market and user tested long time.

      @Ricardo - I am really sorry to hear about Longrunner. I have been burnt before and know how you feel. Don't bother approaching Longrunner or Kickstarter for a refund. I will advise you to initiate a charge back claim on your credit card through your bank. There is no harm in trying that. You may just get your money back.

      @Lo - Is it possible to incorporate a real suspension system to the KKA S1. If you are able to do so, the KKA S1 will be really awesome as a genuine off-road e-skateboard at this price range.

      I hope you are building a good quality product. Sad to say I got scammed from a skateboard company called Longrunner that had their campaign on Kickstarter. Lost over $250.00, and could not give my 7 year old son his Christmas present that I promised him. Kickstarter washed their hands, and did nothing to help me.

    32. King Yiu, Lo Creator on

      @Ricardo Barrios, we have one year warranty for the spare parts if it is not man-caused,if so you can buy from us.

      This concept looks good, but do you have a plan for spare parts such as tires, swing arms, batteries, etc... What type of warranty will you be offering?

      Hi Lo.
      I backed your KKA S1 and happy for this.
      My question is about customs clearance and local taxes :
      I've already bought 2 others electric board via KS and Indiegogo (also built in China) and I hadn't paid any others duties, taxes, custom handling fees, etc...
      I really hope that you will manage the same for your product ;) Please confirm if you already planned that.

    35. King Yiu, Lo Creator on

      hi citiboi, sorry i misunderstand you, KKA S1 has special suspension system and cushioning rubber gasket better than other skateboard. vacuum tires mean not inflated tires.

    36. citiboi

      @Creator - Thanks for your prompt response. If this KKA S1 does not have a suspension system, won't off-road riding be really bumpy and uncomfortable? Also, your specs provide that the tires are 10 inch vacuum tires. Is this erroneous? What do you mean by vacuum tires?

    37. King Yiu, Lo Creator on

      hi citiboi, thanks for your question

      1. The wheels are 5 inches in diameter.
      2. the deck is 85.5 cm in length, the skateboard total length is 101.5 cm including wheels.
      3. The rocker bridge do not have suspension system, it has Swing arm in it.

      Thanks.

      @Creator - I just need to confirm :

      1. Are the wheels 5 or 10 inches in diameter?
      2. Is the deck 101.5 cm in length?
      3. Does the rocker bridge chassis come with any kind of suspension system?

      Thanks.
