Wheelman Motorized Skateboard
This is the motorized wheelboard that whisks riders along at 20 mph while enabling the feet to carve nimble turns like a skateboard, snowboard, or surfboard.
Both feet are placed onto two slip-resistant footboards housed inside each of the hubless tires’ rims. Side-to-side motion of the front foot steers the front wheel while the rear foot stays firmly into the driving rear wheel. Powered by a 2-horsepower, two-stroke engine, the rear wheel’s centrifugal clutch and chain drive are controlled by a rider with a tethered handheld throttle and brake for smooth acceleration and confident stops.
The 14″ knobby tires allow riders to traverse any type of terrain, including packed sand, grass, dirt, or asphalt. With enough power to tackle grades up to 15º while supporting a rider up to 200 lbs., it starts just like a weed trimmer with a pull of a string, and its 1/4-gallon tank takes a mixture of gas and oil, providing a range of up to 20 miles.
