WHERE THOUGHTS TURN INTO REALITY
The owner and designer of Epic Skateboards, Adam Riley built his first electric skateboard at the age of 15 as a school project back in 1991 using a bike chain, lead acid battery and a wired hand control. Since then Epic Electric Skateboards have come a long way, now all Epic skateboards have a wireless hand control with speedometer, headlight and a 5 bar battery indicator so you know when the board needs to be recharged.
They come with features such as lead acid or lithium batteries which get you over 1000 charges, regenerative braking so the power goes back into the battery when the brake is used and the option of a slow speed setting for when your just starting out and a fast speed setting for the more advanced and a reverse mode.
Auto power off after 5 min on the board and 3 min on the hand controller, so if you forget to turn either the electric skateboard or the controller off they turn themselves off for you so you can enjoy your next ride with out either battery going flat. You also have the option to purchase a built in horn in the hand controller and a alarm.

EPIC ELECTRIC SKATEBOARDS IN THE MEDIA
Over the last 2 years Epics Electric Skateboards advanced components and new skating technology has drawn a lot of attention with the press and media we have boards featured in the media with writers and presenters talking about the advanced engineering and technology, with the latest fordable skateboard appearing on UK and Japanese Television in late 2014.
We have worked with great American and Australian Engineers and are now working with awesome electrical and component engineers from Singapore and China making Epics already advanced electrical skateboards even more advanced.
Picture on the right showing just a few of the people who have done stories on our electric skateboards.
LATEST EPIC PROJECT
REVOLUTIONIZING THE WAY WE TRAVEL
The foldable Briefcase Electric Skateboard is from a concept from the designer and owner of Epic Skateboards working with the latest technology and working with and getting advice from some of the greatest minds, such engineers as Jeff Franchowiak from Chicago, America, Jason Koch and Aaron Rodd from Gold Coast Australia.
The design has been worked on for the past 24 months getting the right electronic components, dimensions, and weight to the final stages with months of test and refining to get everything finalized with just a few small modifications left, first batch expecting to be just 11.5kg total weight with speeds of 35km/hour with your choice of 200watt or 500watt brush-less motors with 36volt 7ah lithium battery, with a built in speedometer, battery indicator, and headlight in the hand control, forward and reverse mode, slow and fast speed setting and horn.
