After learning from our experience with our first Kickstarter, where we managed to ship out all our products within two months, we feel comfortable guaranteeing that we can do the same or better this time around with all boards being shipped within 60 days of the campaign ending.
Tested by backers for backers. We have learnt a lot from our first Kickstarter, the most important lesson being: listen to the backers. To make sure we designed the best possible product for the Mk II, we used 20 of our Kickstarter backers in our testing program where they put the board to the test with daily rides sending weekly performance reports straight to our engineering team. Taking on board what our test riders had to say, we perfected our Mk II design to ensure that we would deliver an incredible product.
The Mk II features the latest technologies allowing it to boast some of the most impressive features as well as specs of any board out on the market
The Mk II motor kit is built around in-wheel hub motor technology. Our hub motors give the kit its sleek look and removability while still delivering 2000W of power to the ground each to give the Mk II's remarkable performance. The compact design also allows for our boards to free-wheel like a standard longboard without significant resistance. We build all our boards to a high standard to ensure that all our customers get the most out of the motor kits. Our assembly process includes rigorous quality control systems and we use the highest quality materials practically obtainable. The kits are made modular so that in the case of a breakdown, they can be quickly and efficiently repaired by replacing specific parts rather than being fully replaced each time.
2WD TO 4WD
Slap two Mk II kits onto a single deck to create a more powerful 4WD ride. The Mk II's modular design allows for each motor kit to be paired together on single deck for 4WD or for each to be mounted onto separate decks to create two standard boards.
USE ANY DECK
Install the Mk II and its front trucks like any ordinary trucks on any standard skateboard or longboard deck. Strap the Mk II onto the board of your choice to create the perfect ride for you.
ON-ROAD TO OFF-ROAD
Easily swap out our standard on-road wheels for larger, grippier off-road wheels at any time. Swap out your ride-to-work on-road wheels for your weekend-ride off-road wheels. Change your wheels easily at any time to match your riding style and environment.
Quickly swap out your dead battery for a fresh one to instantly double your range and keep the ride going. Bring a few extra batteries in your bag to triple or even quadruple your range.
The Mk II 4WD is the most powerful electric skateboard currently on the market with a total of 4000W of power allowing for extreme hill-climb capability. The 4WD is capable of climbing hills of up to 43%, easily steeper than the steepest hills in most cities. Check out what the 4WD can do.
The Mk II remote provides easy, reliable, wireless control over your motor kit. It’s an all-in-one control centre that fits in the palm of your hand. It gives you complete control over acceleration, braking, and user modes. It’s also got a charge indicator for your main battery and one for the remote itself. And it’s ergonomic design and safety lanyard ensure it stays in your hand on even the most exhilarating rides!

Customs & duty information
For backers in the US, EU and AU the stated prices are final and include VAT, i.e. the product should not be subject to any import customs duty in these countries.
As for the rewards sent to other countries, the purchaser is responsible for any import or other duties.
Risks and challenges
The Mk II is completely designed, prototyped and tested. Our factories are ready to produce on a large-scale, all we need is the funding to begin the process. What this means for you as a backer is that this project has very few risks and that we will be able to deliver within our target without any issues.
We have completed this exact process with our last Kickstarter managing to ship out our boards within two months so we are confident we will be able to do the same (if not better) this time around.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
