Electric skateboards are becoming more popular, especially in cities where it can be cheaper to use than a car. The Halo Board Carbon Edition is yet another entrant into this market. The company is hoping you’ll find their board more appealing than what the market currently offers. The company says the board’s 3,000-watt dual motors can power up 25-degree grades and its E-ABS will slow you down safely. They’re also promising instant acceleration and braking and a board that is “indestructible.”
It certainly looks like a really nice board. I haven’t been on a skateboard in a very long time but these electric skateboards have gotten me interested. While I don’t think I’d be brave enough to do Ollies or Nosegrinds anymore, it would be fun to just go for a ride on this baby. You can check out the full press release and specifications listed below and hit the link to pre-order if you’re interested. The board is on a pre-order sale for $1097USD with a retail of $1497USD.

FULL PRESS RELEASE
The innovative tech of tomorrow is here today. As electric skateboards are becoming more commonplace, we wanted to create an experience of riding that people hadn’t ever felt before. The speed and joy of boarding down a hill, the floating feeling of riding fresh pow, the precision of carving sharp corners effortlessly — we wanted it all. All the time. Anywhere.
Enter the Halo Board. Using brushless hub motors, the microsensors on the remote are able to precisely transmit all signals instantaneously to your Halo Board, giving you complete control over how fast you accelerate, stop, and heal and toe to carve the roads. We wanted to bring the mountain to any road and any hill. Why should you only speed down a hill when you can Haloboard up the hill as well?
For those of you who like compact designs, the Halo Board was built using t700 carbon fiber to hide the batteries and its motors from view. So, to the naked eye, The Halo longboard looks like a regular skateboard, but once you fly around town, everything you believed possible changes. And when we say around town, we mean it. Our halo board will get you around 12 miles of travel before it needs to be charged again. And even then, it only takes 3 hours to fully charge, so you’ll never have too much down time.
Think you’ll be late if you have to wait to charge before you’re Haloboarding again? Think again. These electric boards are scary fast. The 22 mph top speed of the halo board is no laughing matter and will take some getting used to.. You’ll definitely need to pick up the skills to handle the acceleration without getting a little weak in the legs.
Are you ready to say Halo to the future?
