E-Bikeboard: Could This Be Our Transportation Future? Page 2

The K-1000 has plenty of power for light off-road duty. The manufacturer claims the K-1000 can climb a 13-percent grade, but we couldn't find anything that steep in our neighborhood, so we settled for testing on grades about half that. The K-1000 ascended those without slowing measurably.

Charging time for the batteries takes about 4.5 hours for the pair, and the batteries are designed to provide accept 300 full-cycle charges, and then degrade mildly after that. In practice, the pair should provide years of service life.

Overall, riding the E-Bikeboard is fun. Owning one could make a lot of sense for people in planned communities who need to cover shorter distances (under 10 miles one way) at limited speeds. Compared to the cost of a conventional golf car or neighborhood electric vehicle, the E-Bikeboard could turn out to be a much better value.
