We have two main motivations

Why focused on electric skateboards now, 3 main reasons
- Stand & ride vehicles (esk8's, one-wheels and like) has the highest power efficiency among all transportation options. In order to mobilize a human, cars have to move tonnes of mass, motorcycles a few hundred kilograms, stand & rides however few kilos.
- Esk8s gives the strongest feeling of freedom. Motorcycles are better than cars, esk8s are better than motorcycles.
- Current products on the market have major shortcomings, there is much room to innovate.
