About

The world's first Dual-Sport Electric Skateboard lets you carve uphill and down ...on-road or off! 

Moving from street to off-road (or back) is easy now...
Moving from street to off-road (or back) is easy now...

We invented the wireless electric skateboard back in 1997. Since then, we've been making the best electric skateboards in the world. The Pro-Line V3 DS is the first electric skateboard that lets you to ride the concrete wave and shred the mountain trail - all on the same board.  

Kickstarter will fund the off-road tooling and production minimums to quickly transform the Pro-line V3 from a street slasher to a dirt carver, and back.

 Modular Design = Full Customization Options

Our revolutionary V3 platform is fully modular - allowing you to customize decks, wheels, bushing, batteries, trucks and motors. You decide how you want your board to look and perform. The Dual Sport upgrade adds another dimension to this modularity and gives you freedom to ride on virtually any terrain.

How Easy is it to Move from Street to Off-Road?

...Three easy steps that take about 90 seconds
...Three easy steps that take about 90 seconds

1 - Loosen the kingpin bolts to remove the front & rear trucks; unplug the the motor from the electronics .
2 - Swap out the street version trucks with the off-road trucks (or vice versa); tighten kingpin bolts.
3 - Plug the motor into the electronics.
THAT’S ALL! You're ready to ride!

What does Kickstarter Fund?

So what, exactly, will your pledge fund? 

The street version of the Pro-Line V3 has been in production since October 2012. Kickstarter will fund the off-road module tooling, including front and rear hanger, motor mount, wheel hubs and drive hub, along with the minimum production runs needed to produce the off-road components. Everything else is ready to go.
We’ve been riding, testing, and modifying functional prototypes for over a year, so we’re confident of performance and design.

Performance & Specifications

From US-designed and made electronics, to Canadian hard rock maple/epoxy resin decks and premium US-made urethanes, we’re confident you won’t find a better combination of performance and affordability anywhere else. Offering two boards in one platform has been our goal since introducing wireless 3G remote control in 2009.

Warranty: All boards come with a 1 year warranty except for wear items (belts, wheels, and batteries).

No-Risk Satisfaction Guarantee: Try any board free for 5 days!

The Pro-Line V3 DS makes it easy to change from street to off-road through careful design of electronics and interchangeable parts.

Service: One of the most common questions we’re asked is, “What will I need to replace?” With proper care, there are only 3 common wear items on the boards – wheels, belts, and batteries. A well-maintained board can go 18-24 months without service, and we have many boards that are still going strong after 15 years of use.

Rewards Recap

       * Final specifications for the Off-Road configuration are dependent on final tooling and are subject to change slightly. 

Risks and challenges

We've been working on the Proline V3 Dual Sport model for nearly two years, so we have virtually eliminated the design risks. The street version of the V3 released in October 2012 and has been in production since. Only the injection molds and cast tooling for the off-road portion of the project needs help from Kickstarter.

All technical drawings are completed and functional prototypes have been tested on streets pathways for over 1 year, so we don't expect significant delays - but we will keep investors informed with any changes to our schedule.

We expect tooling and testing of the V3 off-road modules to take about 6-8 weeks to complete. Once tooling is approved, the first production run should require 45-60 days.

We've been working with our current suppliers for over 3 years so we're confident in ability to deliver in a timely manner. We know that delays happen, but provided there are no major issues outside of our control, we're confident we'll deliver on schedule.

All rewards that include the V3-Street version will ship immediately upon successful funding of the campaign (unless otherwise indicated).

We'll update our backers weekly - good news, no news, or bad news.
