Something that a company like Xiaomi does is bring to the market items that consumers do not expect. The brand stands out for making intelligent what was not, as it should be the technological approach. That’s why this time Xiaomi announces the new ACTON Smart Electric Skateboard, an intelligent and incredible skate.
Introducing ACTON Smart Electric Skateboard
The first thing that draws attention is the modern design. At first glance, it does not seem to have anything special, but the true beauty of this product is in its interior. Although this skate was developed by the company ACTON, its design comes from Silicon Valley and is armed with several components of recognized brands. Even so, the DNA of Xiaomi is patent in the project, since the price of the model is very inferior compared with the other models of the ACTON catalog.
With 70 x 20 x 13.5 centimeters as measures and weighing 5Kg, it can support up to 100Kg. ACTON Skateboard has fabrication materials like Canadian maple wood and an aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. In this way, Xiaomi shows that it can bring us the best that technology and sports offer.
Characteristics of the ACTON Smart Electric Skateboard
The LG motors located in the wheels have a design with 500W brushless DC hub, which provides a high speed, which can reach up to 22.5 km / h. Below the table, we will find 10 of Samsung 18650 batteries that provide a range of 12 kilometers. It also feeds a circuit of LED lights integrated into the lower surface of the skateboard and will be loaded from 0 to 100% in 90 minutes. So it will be safer to move at night while another LED indicator will show us the status of the battery.
All these features make it interesting enough, right? But there is still more. Brings its own wireless controller to accelerate and stop the skate, and you can activate it to be able to move in automatic until the battery runs out. Its built-in electromagnetic brakes promise to reduce the speeds constantly, without abruptness.
