The Monolith Electric Skateboard

Mar 9, 2015

Category: Rides

Electric skateboards are starting to inch more from extremely niche market to mainstream, and as a result, many of the boards we see share similarities. But the Monolith lays claim to a couple of firsts: the first and only skateboard with motors in the wheels, and the world’s first electric skateboard with swappable battery packs.

Since everything is inside the deck and wheels, the board itself is sleek and aerodynamic. Top speed is 24 mph, and an accompanying app can set your desired pace. The range is roughly 10 miles, with a depleted battery taking just seconds to swap out. There are three sizes to choose from, with a full charge taking 90 minutes. Regenerative braking means the Manta Drive in-wheel direct drive motor makes use of this extra energy by charging your battery, and lights on the Monolith’s nose and tail provide some extra safety.
