Scooterboard is an electric rideable with 3 wheels and a single-handed handle. Its lean-to-steer axle makes cruising and maneuvering easy.

We've combined two experiences: Riding sideways and leaning to steer like a skateboard with the handling stability of a scooter.

Whether using it for your commute or for your leisure, Scooterboard is an exciting and effortless way to get around!

UPDATE 8/31: Since we reached our funding goal so early in the game, we created a new stretch goal for $50,000! Once we reach $50,000 in pledges, our backers will have the opportunity to design a Limited Edition board!

 

Scooterboard offers a truly fresh approach in combining the skateboard experience with the scooter experience to create a one-of-a-kind rideable. 

Here's six points that make Scooterboard a must-have:

This product comes from an international team who is truly passionate about the product; we’ve poured our hearts, souls, resources (and a lot of coffee for those late nights) into this. Our engineering team has designed and produced electric rideables for nearly a decade.

We started developing the first version of Scooterboard in 2014. Our goal was to create a unique electric rideable that was easy to ride and a cool experience.

It looked chic, but we wanted to make sure it was going to be the amazing, user-friendly device we imagined. After thorough testing, it turned out that this prototype wasn’t quite right. The turning was unintuitive and threw us off balance.

Now, knowing what to fix, we scrapped the model and launched forward with even more determination.

This effort led to results: 

Our current Scooterboard that anyone can ride. 

We've been able to bring Scooterboard to some early users and here are their thoughts:

 

 

 

To thank you for being our backer, we've created some special backer rewards for you:

If you want to support us by buying a Scooterboard, we have special pricing just for you! Our projected retail price is at least $599, but we want to make sure you get a great reward by being an early adopter:

 

We want to engage the Kickstarter community because like you, we aren't fad chasers, we're deviants. We aren't thinking outside the box because there is no box.

We've created a product that breaks down the boundaries between a scooter and skateboard. No more front-facing riding. No more high learning curve. We want to validate the market and use the money raised to start mass manufacturing, create add-ons for Scooterboard, and create more unique products that are unlike anything else existing in this world. 

No other rideable out there looks like our product and rides like our product. Your support will allow us to shake up the industry and push ourselves and others to develop more novel technology that directly impacts your life for the better.

 

We are a small international team based in San Diego. We want to hear from you! If you love our campaign let us know and share with #scooterboard!

 Thank You For Your Support

Please note that our videos and photos are portrayed by professional Scooterboard riders. While we've created a safe and fun electric rideable, Scooterboard is still motorized. Please use common sense, be aware of your surroundings, and ride within your limits. We encourage wearing safety gear such as helmets and pads while riding.

Risks and challenges

We understand how valuable your time and money is. That’s why we put in so much work into researching, prototyping, testing and retesting: To make sure we created a product that’d deliver exactly what it promises to.

We’ve already taken the risks. We’ve created Scooterboard and started the first batch of production.

This is good news because:
1. Since we’ve already created Scooterboard, we have the full confidence to say it will do what it promises to.
2. You will receive your Scooterboard within 45 days of our Kickstarter project ending - no need to wait for further development and manufacturing.

We wish we could teleport our Scooterboard to each and every one of you now - so you could experience the board at this very moment. So teleportation is one challenge for us at the moment. But hey, that’s why we are offering such a great rewards to our Kickstarter backers.

If there are any unforeseen hiccups, we won't leave you hanging. We pride ourselves on integrity and clear communication.
