SkatE-Pods - Hands-Free Electric Boards
CARVON LLC is a startup company that will mainly produce SkatE-Pods. SkatE-Pods are hands-free electric boards with freewheel mechanism and mechanical brakes. SkatE-Pods are different from most electric skateboards because they are not operated by hand remote-controls. It also uses mechanical brakes to stop, unlike all available e-boards today which uses motor-braking to stop. Because of the introduction of mechanical brakes and the elimination of the motor for stopping purpose, a freewheel clutch is able to be added. This is beneficial because it adds a magnet drag-free coasting which is helpful for extending battery-life, unrestricted downhill and tricks, and the ability to easily manually push the board when it runs out of battery-life, or when you turn it off.
