The all-new electric skateboard for kids features "kick to cruise" technology, a unique design and offers segment leading value at only $130.
DENVER, Oct. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- SWAGTRON®, the leader in affordable light electric vehicles, today introduces the all-new Swagskate NG3, a compact electric skateboard built just for kids. The mini e-board features "kick to cruise" technology aka Endless Mode, allowing young riders to experience the thrill of riding a board boosted by an electric motor without the need for a remote. Once the rider kicks off, the motor takes over and smart sensors in the board maintain speed automatically.
The NG3 is capable of speeds up to 9.3 mph, but only maintains whatever speed the rider achieves by kicking (think: cruise control), making it an intuitive way for young riders to progress from riding a traditional skateboard to an electric one. The motor disengages once any deceleration or resistance is detected allowing riders to slow and stop the same as a traditional board. Powered by a 100-watt motor, the NG3 can support riders up to 150 pounds and go up to 6 miles per charge.
"Our goal with the NG3 was to create an electric skateboard that offered kids the chance to experience the thrill of riding an e-board, but in a way that was a natural transition from traditional skateboards," says CMO Jason Wakefield. "And of course, to make it available at a price that parents would approve of."
The Swagskate NG3 is compact; at only 19.6 inches long it fits easily in a backpack. And weighing in at only 7.7 pounds, it's easy to carry, too. The lightweight deck features a futuristic shape and the griptape is emblazoned with the iconic lion logo. An LED taillight doubles as a color-coded systems indicator. A multicolor display shows during standby, while green means charged and ready to ride and red indicates braking. The LED also helps keep riders visible in low-light conditions.
