Tool Time!

Dear Mellows,

todays news is a huge milestone on the way to getting the Mellow Drive out to you guys.

What you see here is our last round of 3D printed pieces for the Mellow Drive. For the last weeks we’ve been finetuning them so all the pieces will fit perfectly together.

In clear words that means:

We have ordered the tools that will built the magnesium parts!

The company that will built the tools is a direct neighbour of our manufacturer who produces the frame of the Mellow Drive.

Next in line are the tools for the parts of the Battery Pack. Which actually consists of 9 pieces altogether.

We can’t tell you how exciting this is for us. We have been talking about Mellow for years and now we are holding the final model in our hands. Sorry for being a bit short on words this time, but we are sort of speechless.

A little extra for all of you who are waiting anxiously for some new accessories in our online shop – here's the first 3D printed models for offroad wheels.

On top of that we have another sweet news saved for you: We will be in Trier at the weekend of the 16th of April with the Trick17 skateshop for some testrides and chats. You can’t miss us with our new Mellow Mobile Basecamp.
Hope to see you there at Messepark Trier!

Happy Easter!
Speak to you soon,
Johannes & Kilian

      Dear Tim and Jay,
      we try our best to have them in the shop before shipping starts. But no promise on that one. We still have to do some testing on them concerning their effect on motor efficiency and so on.
      And a snow compatible version hasen't been planned yet. But you never know what might all happen in the future ;)

      Hooray. Offroad wheels!!! Please have them ready before shipping so I can add them to my order.

      Any chance to use Mellow as snowmobile like the following product? I know it might be dangerous, but it's gonna be fun. I will just sit on my board. :)

      @Tim: Offroad wheels have been mentioned a few times in the comments, but never in the updates.

      Offroad wheels? I don't remember reading about these before. Will they be available when the first Mellow drives ship? How much will they cost?
