Traditionally speaking, electric skateboards haven’t seen a lot of innovation over the past decade, which is quite a surprise given their rise in popularity. Now, a company has set out to change all of that with STARY, the world’s lightest electric skateboard.
STARY is a newly designed advanced electric skateboard that is incredibly light (weighing just 8.6 pounds) and long-lasting. In fact, it can last for up to 10 miles on a single charge, depending on the load and stability. There are three modes, including Beginner, Cruise and Advanced. In Advanced Mode, this skateboard can hit speeds up to 18.6 mph. It’s controlled via a remote held in the rider’s hand. As the rider pushes their wrist forward, the board accelerates, and as the remote is pulled back, the brakes are applied. What’s even more unique about this electric skateboard is that the gears are all housed in the wheels. The STARY is available now to early backers for $399. [Purchase]
