There are many reasons why people are tired of cars, a lot of people choose to use public transport as an alternative, but not all cities have a viable public transport network, and those that do, are always limited, because they never leave you exactly where do you want to be.
This is where micro-mobility comes in, small electric vehicles, easy to transport, low maintenance and affordable prices! Among the wide range of micro-mobility vehicles available, electric skateboards are clearly the most fun and undoubtedly the most stylish.

Thanks to the small but powerful engine, it will seem that you are always going downhill, moving with the surfing feeling through the streets of your city, arriving at places and taking your skateboard by the handle with you anywhere.
You can combine the use of your electric skateboard with public transport in the way you prefer, getting off at the stop you want and skating to your final destination. When you get home, just plug your skateboard into the plug and after a couple of hours you’re ready to do several more kilometers.
Without a doubt, a change in your life!
