The New Metroboard Slim Electric Longboard is Here!
For Fall 2014 we are incredibly excited to release the Metroboard Slim, Our New Electric Skateboard.
We’ve gone to great lengths to redesign the Metroboard Slim from the ground up, resulting in a board that is more portable, fun, and stylish, than ever before.
The Metroboard Slim was Developed over the past two years and is backed by eleven years of Experience in the Electric Skateboard industry.

We’ve always sought to create a motorized skateboard that handles like a traditional Skateboard . Unlike other boards on the market that are heavy, bulky, and hard to maneuver, the Metroboard Slim looks and rides like a traditional Longboard, with great Responsiveness and the added Thrill of Carving without pushing. Our goal was to make the Ultimate Carving Machine, and we are more than pleased with the end result!
A lot of thought went into designing the Metroboard Slim Electric Longboard. The combination of deck, trucks, and wheels results in an electric skateboard that looks gorgeous, handles beautifully, and weighs just 17 lbs. The Honey Skateboards 40” Velocity V2 Deck has an elegant wood pin striping and a broad 10″ width, enabling you to carve on a dime. Combined with the beautifully sculpted Caliber II 10” 50° Reverse Kingpin Trucks you will be able to maneuver around anything the road brings at you. Your choice of 97 mm (Black) and 83 mm (Clear Blue) 75A Super High Rebound Wheels, guarantees smooth handling over any type of asphalt.

The heart of our electric skateboards lies in our choice of motor and battery. The 6374 Brushless Outrunner Motor rated for 3000 Watts Peak Power (600 Watts Continuous) is ultralight, compact, and incredibly quiet. This powerful motor will give you quick acceleration, rapid hill climbing, and a thrilling 20 mph top speed. The real gem of the Metroboard Slim is the Thin Super Light Lithium Battery, just 22 mm thick, available in both a 15 mile (36V 6AH) and 20 mile (36V 8AH) range option, and housed in a stylish slim aluminum battery box. The battery’s weight is evenly distributed across the entire length of the deck, making the Metroboard Slim highly portable and easy to carry.
We’ve also completely redesigned the brushless motor controller (Designed and Made in the USA) to improve high power performance and increase reliability under the daily stresses of vibration and impact. Our new controller also drives two One Watt High Power White LEDs in the front and two Red LEDs in the rear. Super Bright LEDs are embedded into custom translucent riser pads, creating a cool glowing effect at night. These high power lights are bright enough to ensure that others see you and that you see the road ahead of you, helping increase your safety at night.
