Think of the Electric Skateboard as a mountain bike in skateboard form. An Australian design team cooked up the for thrill-seekers looking to experience the kinds of jumps and drops usually reserved for snowboarders, featuring a massive independent double wishbone suspension — with four mountain bike-style shock absorbers and either two or four separate motors — making it equally at home on dirt, gravel or a rugged mountain trail. The G4X model, fitted with a 3000W brushless motor per wheel, is capable of reaching a top speed of 50 km/h (31 mph). The 900Wh Li-ion battery has a range of 18-22 miles, and re-charging takes 2-2.5 hours.
