MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 1, 2016) - ACTON, the leading designer and manufacturer of advanced, smart, light-weight, and innovative electric skateboards, electric skates and electric scooters, today announces its newest innovation, BLINK QU4TRO. As one of the fastest, most powerful eBoards on the market, it's the only board that includes four-wheel drive and electric hub motors for ultimate climbing power. QU4TRO is also made of light-weight materials for easy transport, and features unprecedented engineering and design, allowing for 22 miles of cruising per charge.
In addition to launching the BLINK QU4TRO, ACTON has also added the BLINK S and BLINK S2 to its line. All three of the new eBoards utilize hub motors, which are powerful, torquey, smooth and require less maintenance. These advanced motors also allow for advanced regenerative braking, making them superior to standard belt motors. Additional specs include powerful Samsung/Panasonic battery cells, smart features via the ACTON app and integrated lights, which double as a design and safety feature. Controlled by a remote, the hands-free, lightweight boards give riders the ability to set the speed of the board.
"Our goal is to transform the way people commute and cruise around town, so we wanted to create boards that are integrated machines, far superior to what eBoards once were," said ACTON's Co-Founder and CTO, Peter Treadway. "These aren't just a collection of off-the-shelf parts assembled with a few electronics; we carefully designed these next generation BLINK boards with aluminum and carbon fiber materials so they are rugged but still light-weight and easy to carry. They're ideal for any commuter from students to the business professional."
