Marbel: The World’s Lightest Electric Skateboard

Legs, they’re so yesterday. Cars, electric bikes, people movers, all designed to replace the need to move our lower limbs. Same with electric skateboards. Whereas you might need to propel yourself every 20 feet now, you’ll have the option to do it much less with electric skateboards. Consider the Marbel. The makers bill it as the world’s lightest electric skateboard, weighing in at a not-so-pudgy 9.9 pounds. It runs on lithium-ion batteries and hits a rather quick, 20 mph uphill, and a total run of 10 miles.

They also use kevlar and carbon fiber construction, so durability won’t be an issue. It’s not the prettiest thing in the world, nor the cheapest. It’s currently in the crowdfunding stage, and you can get in $1,200 right now. So, if you hate the idea of striking your foot down on the pavement every couple of seconds, this just might be the answer.

What Materials Are Trucks Made From?

Skateboard Trucks are made from aircraft-grade T6 aluminum alloy; the axles are made of high tensile SAE 4130 Chromoly alloy steel. Most of the time, distinguishing a cheaper truck from an expensive truck might require some measure of experience; this is why I recommend you to choose the best skateboard wheels manufactured by reputable brands.

Cheaper trucks are manufactures with low-grade cast materials that are well polished to give them an attractive appearance. As the adage goes, “you can put lipstick on a pig, but that doesn’t change its nature.” The bushing and pivot give off a horrible experience. Additionally, if you’re a fan of tricks and stunts, be rest assure that this trucks won’t exceed a month.
