ACTON is a company that you've most likely never heard of, but for the past few years, they have been creating unique and interesting forms of alternative transportation. The firm also debuted its first electric skateboard last year but expanded its catalog this past December, offering a range of new electric skateboards on Indiegogo. The campaign, with three new skateboards, went on to raise nearly $1.5 million in total funds. The company is now ready to offer its skateboards to those that might have missed the campaign with pre-orders being made available through its website.
Although all three of the latest options are available for pre-order, the BLINK S is the one that will arrive the soonest, with that date being sometime in March. As for the specifics, the board includes a hub motor that can produce a maximum speed of 15MPH and a battery rated to last up to 7 miles on one charge. You'll also have access to an app to set ride modes, check how many miles you've traveled, track routes, and more.
The BLINK S has a normal retail price of $699.00, but for a limited time, you can save $100 off with a promo code provided on the product page. The promo pricing is also available on other models.
While pre-orders are currently available from the ACTON website, the updates on the Indiegogo campaign indicate that shipments of orders have been extremely slow and delayed. While the ETA is a few months out for most boards, you may choose to exercise a bit of caution with pre-orders of this nature, as things such as estimated shipping times can and do slip.
