Thanks to notice our R&D efforts ! (don't make to much fun at it, it's more an electric (urban) board than a real mountainboard )
Integration of hub motors is going on : tires have been installed and lithium ion battery installation + electric connection is next...we should have the first video of the test ride soon. (link to full report)

Cool concept with the hub motors, can't wait to see where your R&D goes. That buggy looks pretty fun too.

I can't see anybody making fun or giving you a hard time on here ;)

Nice! What sort of speeds have you gotten out of it? It certainly looks like it has some power - the way it reared up at the start.

around 25 km/h because it 's limited by the electronic controller...could be much more with 2000 W

It's just meant to hold the power control and the brake.
It can freely rotate on a flexjoint. As the guy making/testing the board don't want to use footstraps, he use the handle to hold in place when the board accelerate.

Oh! I was just wondering because I think reg. Flexboards have a pretty cool design. I'd love to try one. It's kind of cool that your posting vid. of your R&D with the electric, not too crazy about the handle though.

Handle will be replaced by a wireless controller soon...
If you want to test a Flexboardz, please contact me by PM, there is a testing tour ongoing in the USA.

There's my electric mountainboard. Anyone interested in buying one they are for sale..... If the solid axles don't bend like the pro's did, they are ready for sale.

The hub motor idea is stellar.
