Lot's of media-hype/news about this board since the recent CES events. I'm intrigued by this board and the other electric board options that are being brought to the public these days.

Looks pretty cool, but would be interesting to see how it copes on steep slopes or gravel like surfaces.

This board's roots have to date back to the homemade board "Tox" brought out to Boreal in 1999. I don't think I have any photos of it, but he later redesigned his homemade board as a 3 wheel inline type. I remember watching him attempt to ride his one wheel board down the course. Insane! He even entered the Big Air competition on it. Not to mention, he rode his bicycle out from Chicago to attend the next year's Kratka, California event. One of the most creative and unique characters in our sports history :)

im a big believer in the simpler the better. and this hit that button beautify. also get the impression the ride on this must be sooo smooth. would love to have a go. only down side i see is that stance width being so limited.

what i really wanna see is how it copes with some bindings in a skate park ;)
