Elwing is a compact, versatile electric skateboard that can take you up hills and through traffic, with a top speed of 18mph. At 9.9lbs it’s light enough to carry anywhere but powerful enough to cruise up a 10% grade hill. Getting around the city was never been this convenient and fun.
INTRODUCING ELWING BOARDS
Elwing is the world’s most compact electric skateboard. Every detail has been designed based on the idea that commuting should be the fun and easy part of the day. The result is an extremely lightweight electric skateboard that holds a incredible amount of power.
Elwing’s performance is amazing : 18mph of top speed and 7 miles of range for only 9,9lbs. It takes only 45 minutes to charge with the fast charger. The frictionless in-wheel motor provides phenomenal gliding sensations and allows you to keep riding without using the motor.
Elwing packs a powerful motor within a small form factor so it’s versatile enough for any situation while being light enough to hold with one finger.
Art and board sports have always been very related. It’s beautiful to see someone riding with style, and so should the product be. We’ve had this limited edition designed by Mecca Collective and laser engraved by Le Shape.
BEAT THE TRAFFIC
GLIDE TO WORK
CARRY IT EVERYWHERE
NEVER PUSH WHEN GOING UPHILL
CONTROL YOUR SPEED WHEN GOING DOWNHILL
The Elwing Board is the result of 2 years of prototyping, testing, failing and learning. We met in 2014 in Shanghai, where we spent over 2 hours everyday commuting to work.
We believe commuting should be the fun and easy part of the day.
As board sports addicts, electric skateboards seemed to be the perfect solution to our commuting solution. But all we found on the market were electric longboards. They are super fun but too heavy and expensive.
We built a compact electric skateboard that holds an incredible amount of power. Since then we wake up everyday knowing that we’ll have our daily dose of fun.

RISKS AND CHALLENGES
Designing a product that contains mechanical, electrical and electronic constraints is not easy. We understand that delays happen and things may take a little longer than expected.
We’re always planning ahead to bypass potential delays. For an on-time delivery, we’re working to solve potential production problems now. Things like:
- Finishing the design of a new remote control with a larger slider to improve accuracy while braking and speeding up. We will then have to adapt the software and solve the remaining small bugs to reach the perfect settings.
- It takes about 2 months to pass FCC/CE certifications. It could take 1 more month if we fail some tests in the first try. We’ve started the conversation early and hope to have the certification by the end of this campaign.
