If standing on top of a board travelling at 28mph is your idea of fun then this electric skateboard should be right up your street.
The Gnarboard has 850W of power driving each wheel, resulting in a whopping 3.4kW of pushing power, which explains its ability to go from 0-28mph in an undergarment-soiling 1.9 seconds.
With enough battery to last for around 15 miles, each Gnarboard Trail Rider’s charge should last long enough for a decent dose of high speed off-road shenanigans, although its hefty US$6,100 price tag may put a downer on light wallets.
Still, there’s always the slightly cheaper Road Warrior (US$5,500) and Commuter (US$4,800) models, both of which pack a little less grunt but can still reach the same top speed over a longer range.
