So I just saw the video and kickstarter for boosted boards. Looks like a nice minimal board. They’re using and interesting two engine format and keeping the batteries (and skateboard range) to a minimum.

One of the things I like about this project is that begins they’re using some really nice base components which should make it a nice board to ride without the motor. e.g. Loaded board and Orangatang wheels.

Not so great is the price $1200

I thought the dual motor mount of two brushless motors Amazing is interesting. Most mounts I’ve seen are on one wheel off to one side.

Below is a close up of the drive train and how the wheel attaches.
