We aim to bring top quality boards at affordable prices and have found two electric skateboards that we believe will do just that.
Shenzhen, Guangdong (PRWEB) November 12, 2014
While skateboarding doesn't have the long history that many other sports like football, baseball, cricket and tennis have, it has grown rapidly from humble beginnings. Skateboards started out as just a piece of 2 by 4 with roller-skate wheels attached and then in the 50s, thanks in large part to the surfing craze and its ability to recreate the freedom of the waves on concrete, skateboarding saw considerable growth. More recently it was included in the '1995 ESPN Extreme X- Games' which saw skateboarding move in to a mainstream sport that today sees more people than ever enjoy taking to 4 wheels.
“With so many people now using skateboards, the next evolution in their history appears to be in developing electric versions for everyday use that are cheap, clean and reliable,” said Rose Li, PR Manager at Chinavasion.
We asked Rose Li what she thought about the rise of electric skateboards. “In this rapidly growing market, electric skateboards can range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars for top of the range boards, but it can be hard to find good quality at respectable prices which is an area we aim to address.”
Asked why Chinavasion was interested in electric skateboards Rose Li responded, “We have been monitoring the trend in electrical transportation closely and following our hugely successful Uni-Wheel we were determined to replicate that with skateboards by offering customers even more choices in alternative clean transportation that combines fun and practicality.”
Rose Li told us that at Chinavasion “We aim to offer top quality boards at affordable prices and have found two electric skateboards that we believe will do just that.”
Introducing the ‘E-Street Board’ model, Rose Li said, “It is a great entry level electric skateboard that has a 65KG load limit, so it’s perfect for younger riders such as teenagers or newcomers to boarding and it has an affordable price.”
The specifications show that this electric skateboard has a 150 Watt motor and can reach speeds of 10kph so, as Rose Li puts it, “Its fast enough to have some fun while still being very safe.”
It runs off a 24 volt lead acid battery, which makes it heavier than a standard board so users probably won’t be doing any ollies, heel flips or board slides, however that weight brings with it around one hour’s worth of push-free gliding even up gentle inclines. The wireless remote puts the user firmly in control of acceleration and breaking letting them confidently cruise with ease and it can cover about 10 kilometers before it will need recharging, which should be enough time to get some thrills while traveling to where ever they are going.
The big brother to the ‘E-street Board’ is called the ‘E-Mountain board’; Rose Li says, “We’re not sure if the 'E' is for electric or extreme as this mountain board really packs a punch”.
Like all mountain boards, it has large wheels so it can be used on grass, dirt tracks and uneven surfaces. Also it supports a maximum load of 135kg. The 'E-mountain Board' can accelerate up to 32 kph thanks to the 36000mAh battery, so riders will really feel the wind in their hair as they speed about on these wheels. Users get a massive 26km or so, on a full charge letting them commute to work, travel to their friends or even use it to take a surfboard to the beach to enjoy some waves. The choice is theirs and the price is great thanks to Chinavasion wholesale listings bringing everyone the best products at prices they can afford.
“One of the benefits of the electric skateboard is that they are very easy to use and have a fast learning curve so even if you don't have great balance you can quickly master this form of electric transportation for commuting and fun,” said Rose Li.
Chinavasion is a leading wholesaler of cool gadgets and electric forms of transportation like the Uni-wheel and now these new electronic skateboards which start from less than $300 and offer a great alternative to some of the commercial branded forms of electric transport.
