Spectra Is The Perfect E-Board For Commuting

There are many forms of personal transport available now, but most are too bulky for the office. In contrast, the compact SPECTRA e-board is perfect for commuting. With intelligent hands-free controls and an impressive range, it will make you want to skate everywhere.

– Small enough to strap on your backpack

– Range of 12.4 miles and 15.5 mph top speed

– Smart brakes and various speed modes allow for total hands-free control

Commuting or just cruising

Getting around any city is easier if you can avoid the roads. Bikes offer one alternative, but you can’t easily push one around the subway. Even some smaller forms of transport are pretty bulky.

You can’t accuse SPECTRA of carrying any extra weight. The Pro version weighs just 12 pounds and measures only 19.4 inches long. You can easily carry it under one arm or attach it to your backpack.

When you need to get somewhere, the 3.1-inch hub motors jump into action. SPECTRA can hit 15.5 mph on the flat, and the motors are also powerful enough to handle 15-degree inclines. On a full charge, the built-in battery gives you a range of 12.4 miles. In most towns, that should be enough for any round trip.

In addition to lightweight brawn, this e-board has plenty of brain. Pressure and gyro sensors translate your movements into speed control — you simply lean forward to accelerate. The smart brake kicks in immediately when you step off, and the hub motors assist your turns.

Otherwise, SPECTRA rides like a regular skateboard. Consequently, beginner and pro riders should both feel comfortable. Smart LED lights on the front and rear keep you safe after dark. You can also use the companion smartphone app to control the e-board and connect with other SPECTRA riders.
