Metroboard Lithium Charger - 4 Amp

New Super Fast Charger, Abec-11 Flywheel Pulley Insert, and 10 Mile Slim Lithium Battery

4 Amp Fast Charger We now offer an optional super fast 4 Amp Charger for the Metroboard Slim Battery pack, which charges the battery twice as fast as our standard 2 Amp Charger. This results in a charge time of about 2 hours for our 20 mile slim pack, 1.5 hours for our 15 mile slim pack, and just 1 hour for our new 10 mile slim pack. We do however recommend using the 2 Amp charger when you are not in a rush to charge, as slower charging is better for the long term health of the battery.

This machined Aluminum Pulley Insert can be pressed into the hub of an off-the-shelf Abec-11 Flywheel with a diameter of 76 mm, 83 mm, 90 mm, or 97 mm, turning it into a Metroboard Outrunner Compatible Drive Wheel. The pulley can also be rotated…

10 mile Slim Pack

New 10 Mile Range Slim Pack

Coming soon, our new 10 mile slim pack, weighing in at just 1.16 kg (2.55 lbs). This will enable us to build with a slim pack on our shorter boards (even our 29″ mini). The minimum wheelbase is about 19″ to fit this pack. The only board it won’t fit on is our 32″ shortboard which has only a 14.5″ wheelbase. It will be housed in a slim aluminum battery box similar to the one on our longboard, but just shorter in length. This pack will enable us to make Metroboards as light as 13.5 lbs! Should be available within 1 month! Interested? Email Us for more info.

First Preorder Metroboard Slim Electric Longboards started shipping this week!

This week we started shipping our first preorder Metroboard Slim Electric Longboards!
