With a range of 5 to 10 miles, 17 miles per hour top speed, and a lovely minimalistic design, the ZBoard is the coolest little summer personal vehicle project on the block here at the front end of 2012.

17 whole miles per hour!  Goodness gracious, how will people survive the ‘>wind burn?!

This board has regenerative brakes, works with sealed lead acid batteries (rechargeable, of course), and has a 24V, 400W motor. And that’s all just with the classic model…These boards have both front and rear foot pads so you can stay stable, the trucks underneath are heavy duty, as are the tires which are off-road-ready, and the whole rig has a handle for easy carrying. The bulk of the weight comes in the battery box, the motor being relatively tiny sitting in front of your back truck.

It’s still not a hover-board or a speederbike like in Star Wars.
