XIAOMI ACTON Electric Skateboard: Design
This skateboard has no other objective than to provide the user with a quick and safe trip. It is very light and its design resembles that of a traditional longboard. However, it is composed of high-quality materials that allow it to be more resistant and move more easily. In its construction, we find 7 layers of Canadian maple wood and an aeronautical grade aluminum alloy capable of supporting a weight of 100 kilograms. In addition, XIAOMI ACTON Electric Skateboard can dissipate heat to keep the board cool and safe.
With rather small dimensions (70mm x 20mm x 13mm) the ACTON looks really modern and attractive. The electronic equipment, added to the classic factor of skateboarding gives a decidedly futuristic appearance. The frame is made of aeronautical aluminum alloy while the table is composed of 7 layers of Canadian maple. The quality of the two components gives it a particular sturdiness that allows the skateboard to support up to 100kg in weight.
Its four wheels incorporate a motor of 500w that makes it able to reach a speed greater than 22,5 km / h. That’s 5 times faster in relation to a bicycle. These wheels are made with high rebound polyurethane that maximizes traction and favor speed. In addition, they have a hardness of 78A that makes them resistant and practical for use on roads with or without asphalt.
The design also includes a group of unidirectional LED lights at the bottom of the table that makes this XIAOMI ACTON Electric Skateboard stand out among other scooters. They look great and provide security at night, as they illuminate the busy area, avoiding accidents on the road.
