BOOSTED BOARD STEALTH

Focus-Science and Technology - - INNOVATIONS -

For nor­mal skate­boards you want empty roads, good weather, smooth tar­mac and, ideally, a hill to roll down. This makes them pretty use­less as far as com­mut­ing goes (I’ve tried), but the Stealth blasts through these lim­i­ta­tions with a 2,100W mo­tor that pro­pelled my weary frame up­hill, over cob­bles and even past traf­fic. The ac­com­pa­ny­ing app and hand re­mote give you in­tu­itive con­trol over your speed and let you brake quickly or slow your de­scent down a hill. The Stealth is heavy, awk­ward to carry, and de­mands you wear a hel­met (at top speed you’re toe­ing the line be­tween fun and dan­ger­ous) – but it will also in­ject pure, child­ish joy into any jour­ney. From £1,499, boost­ed­boards.com

TOP SPEED: 38KM/H (24MPH) RANGE: 22.5KM (14 MILES)
