About

  

 

Pimp up YOUR deck with our JayKay e-trucks! The electric drive is invisibly pluged inside the truck. It does not differ from other longboard trucks. Only you are aware of the JayKay drive under your board. Cruise along the lakeside with light electronic support or go up the next hill with top power. If you just want to feel your muscles, switch off the drive and enjoy the one hundred percent freewheel.   

Our unique selling propositions are

  • Patented, invisible e-drive including electronics and batteries in the truck
  • Electric drive which can be attached to every longboard deck (drop through or top mount)
  • 100% freewheel by wheel hub motor (license granted)
  • Low weight of approx. 2 kg / truck
  • Without On / Off switch - the drive starts when the board is moved
  • Fully wireless
  • "Invisible" control via Clip of Flicktek

The design of our e-truck is straight forward, descreet and full of secrets. No one but you will know that there is a hell lot of power in those trucks! The entire electronics, the motor and the batteries are integrated into the truck – the aesthetics of your board is retained.   

Electric drive

Our e-trucks can be mounted on every longboard deck, whether with drop through or top mount. They are designed to be driven together as a couple. The drive is protected against dust and splash water according to the protection class IP54 in the truck.

100% Freewheel

The combination of a well thought-out motor and a patented winding ensures maximum efficiency and a hundred percent freewheel. Due to this technology you don’t have to stop for charging. You can continue without any roll resistance – like on a normal longboard.

Energy recovery

By braking, energy is recovered, allowing you to expand your maximum range. This enables you to brake even when the battery is empty. Because the electronics detect when a driver is off the board, it brakes automatically when you spill off.

More Features   

  • 30 km / h top speed

With our e-trucks you can travel up to 30 km/h under top speed on a level surface. If this is too sporty, you can choose a more relaxed mode like ``eco`` or ``slow`` in the JayKay App.

  • 12 km range

Theoretically, you can cross the Lake Constance with only one battery charge. If you prefer staying with dry feet, you should have arrived at home after a maximum of twelve kilometers, drive without support or have a beer in a pub while your e-trucks get charged.

  • Bluetooth control

Sensors on a clip on your wrist detect the finger movements, interpret them and send the data via Bluetooth to the trucks.

  • 1 hour charging time

The interchangeable battery has a fast charging time of one hour and a normal charging time of three hours. Can be charged either inductively or via the universal USB Type C connector.

 

 

 Baseplate   

Through the induction coil, a smartphone can be charged according to quasi-standard QI by placing it on the base plate. At home the board can be inductively charged by a board suspension / mount (planned feature). 

The data exchange between the two axes and the smartphone or smartwatch takes place via bluetooth. The USB Type C connector is a global standard connector for smartphones / tablets. With it you can charge your e-truck battery or load your gadget on the road during a short break.   

Engine

The engine is integrated into each single wheel, which means that your board has a four-wheel drive and accelerates homogeneously.

The combination of a well-thought-out motor and a patented winding ensures maximum efficiency and an one hundred percent freewheel, whereby manual driving is also possible. Regardless of whether the battery is full or empty.   

Battery pack

Four high-performance industrial battery cells per axle provide power to your board. Spare batteries can be replaced by a few easy steps. The electronics are equipped with cell protection and charging balancing. The recharge time is designed for 500 charging cycles. We provide an one year warranty on this battery.

Assembly   

The axis is completely cordless, this means baseplate and hanger can simply be inserted into each other as usual.

The casters and the ball bearing can be exchanged quickly and easily. To change it, open the outer plug with the enclosed tool. The outer ball bearing and the wheel can then be replaced. Both are available in our shop.   

 

The JayKay e-trucks are invisibly controlled by Clip, first product from Flicktek – a startup from the UK. Clip is the first and only sensor technology for the wrist, able to read and understand finger movements. It’s a fast and natural way of interaction that lets you focus on what’s ahead and think forward. This clip is attached to the bottom of the watch or the wrist strap. Sensors detect the finger movements, interpret them into commands and send the data via Bluetooth to the e-trucks.   

Technical details   

Clip technology recognizes finger gestures from the wrist thanks to a layer of sensors. These sensors interpret the movement of the tendons, then our algorithm classifies the gesture.

Why tendon analysis?

There are other possible approaches thoroughly documented in literature (Elctro/Phono/Meccano/Photo – myography ) that are capable of achieving some results in gesture recognition, however flicktek chose the tendon approach because

• it is more accurate and reliable,

• the sensors are smaller and more comfortable,

• it works with sweat, water, tattoos.

This technology is patent pending by flicktek.

Risks and challenges

Some objectives that could possibly take more time than we anticipate are the respective testing centers for approval the relevant product certification like FCC, GOST, CCC. We do everything to ensure that our e-truck already meets all the necessary requirements. However, if adjustments are still required, time delays may arise. Same for the Apple Store and Google Play approvals of our mobile app.
Almost every supplier come from Germany, which means we will not be subject to delays due to long shipping times. In the rare case that a supplier fails to deliver, we have a possible replacement for each one.
