Stary Is the World’s Lightest Electric Skateboard

July 23, 2015

The problem with most electric skateboards is they’re heavy—which, when you think about it, goes against one of the true benefits of using a skateboard: they’re portabile. For an electric skateboard that’s more actual skateboard than skateboard tank, consider Stary. At just 8.6 lbs, Stary isn’t a pain in the bicep to pick up and carry around when you’re not riding. Eschewing the standard motor and large battery for a set of power wheels operated by a wireless remote, the clever skateboard keeps weight down while allowing riders to travel up to 18.6 mph. Thanks to a planetary gear-brake mechanism, Stary makes it easier for riders to stay stable while breaking and hopping on the board. Back it on Kickstarter now and save $400 off retail.
