We've seen plenty of electric vehicles over the years, but none that weigh in at under ten pounds. Claiming the throne of "world's lightest electric vehicle", the Marbel Electric Skateboard comes in at 9.9 lbs, and offers a range of up to 10 miles and a top speed of 20 mph thanks to a powerful battery system that's completely integrated into the deck. Speaking of which, it's built entirely from carbon fiber and kevlar, save for the nose, tail, and wheels, which are all crafted from Urethane rubber. All you need to do is hop aboard and move the throttle slider, or better yet, pair the board to your phone and completely customize your ride.
If you've always wanted to experience the feeling of flying, but don't want to deal with the expense of a plane or helicopter, or spend the time getting licenses and certifications, then the Aero-X Hoverbike might be just what you're looking for. With two carbon fiber propellers fitted to the front and back, the hover bike is capable of flying up to ten feet above the ground and cruising at 45 miles per hour.And with maneuverability similar to that of a motorcycle, you can just tilt your body to change your course. Ideal for a range of professional and recreational uses, it's perfect for search and rescue, border patrol, disaster relief, bounding over the desert, or flying over the water (with the optional flotation pontoon kit).
Modern skateboarding as we know it came from surfing — after the waves went out, surfers would carve the asphalt just trying to pass the time — so it only makes sense that a surfboard company would bring us skateboards that harness the spirit of the surf. Salt Skateboards are made from two layers of walnut veneer sandwiching a layer of maple veneer, giving them all the strength of hardwood while maintaining enough flexibility to maneuver. The tail kicks up slightly giving you excellent control when you're carving, so you get the feel of moving through the waves even on land.
