EXO is concept foldable e-skateboard. The name itself is a shortened form of “Exoskeleton”, describing the aesthetic behind the E-boards construction. It takes the interpretation of a personal e-skateboard and turns on its head, the board has been designed with intention to become world’s first foldable electric skateboard. Not only it looks unique but also highly functional like you’ve never seen before.
Simple to understand at a glance and highly intuitive when being used, the rider simply depresses and pivots the boards individual pedals, which in turn operates the two 150W motors located at the base of each wheel. Acceleration, braking, and steering can all be done by your feet. The board is able to determine which foot is placed in the front, and can change the orientation of the electric motor’s quickly to accommodate. On either side of the wheel is an inlet fan for cooling the electric motors and an outlet vent to let the hot air escape from inside the wheel. This is a new interpretation of air-cooled technology.

When the board is required to be packed into a smaller space, or to be carried, the user simply has to press the red button located in the center of the board (This is also where the boards battery housing is found). Once the button is depressed the board can be manipulated into its compacted shape.
