We all could use a little assistance, especially when that assistance gets us going up to 30 mph. Rise Robotics was started several years ago in 2011 under the umbrella mission of designing and selling breakthrough mechanical products that serve the purpose of assisting mankind in our day to day endeavors. The Kickstick is one such product.

Acting as a self-propulsion system, the Kickstick features patented Rise Robotics technology to propel skaters to speeds previously unattainable on flat ground. Simply activate the stick, touch the wheel to the ground and pull the lever. You’ll instantly be boosted in speed atop your favorite board. There’s a pressure-based throttle that prevents skidding and helps maintain control, an ergonomic grip and carbon fiber suspension facilitate a comfortable ride, and it’s durable so ditching the Kickstick in any moment of panic won’t damage the product. The device is also completely battery powered so you can carry it with you wherever you go, always at the ready for a quick and stylish exit. Available now for preorder.Watch the video below to see it in action. [Purchase]
