Behold, a personal electric vehicle that finally combines the stability of a full-size longboard with the portability of a mini skateboard! This revolutionary design features a lightweight and durable aluminum deck which boasts a competitive wheel base when in the fully-extended riding mode. The powerful electric motors combined with the smart controller allow you to effortlessly glide through the city. The onboard battery pack hidden within the deck provides all the power you need to conquer even the steepest hills. After reaching your destination, the longboard can be quickly retracted into a sleek and compact form no longer than the length of a laptop!
