Shane Chen of Inventist is touted as the creator of the original hoverboard, and his latest project, SHANE, borrows its two-wheeled design. It comes equipped with parallel wheels that automatically react relative to the car body, keeping it in perfect balance, even at high speeds.
SHANE was designed to be practical and efficient for everyday urban as well as highway use where laws permit. The front wheel steering system ensures greater maneuverability and makes parking a breeze, thanks to the two wheel differential speed control. Large wheels minimize rolling resistance while in-wheel regenerative shocks store damping energy to recharge the battery. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on if or when we’ll see a functional prototype from Inventist.
- MOST CLASSIC AND RELIABLE - The GXL V2 is the Gotrax most classic, mature, and reliable electric scooter . The GLX V2 has an large console, long battery life, folding mechanism, and has passed stringent UL2272 testing.
- IMPROVED BATTERY LIFE - Featuring a 187.2Wh Battery the GXL V2 travels up to 12.5 miles recharges in about 4 Hours. Top Speed 15.5mph. We suggest you check the tires once a month and inflate tires in time to ensure that the tire pressure is 340kpa(50PSI).
- IMPROVED MOTOR - The 250 Watt Motor provides high torque but mantains a low power consumption. The Gotrax GXL V2 reaches a top speed of 15.5mph and can handle up to 220lbs.
Chen’s colorful history of inventions have won awards at CES, INPEX, ISPO and The History Channel and one of his scientific instrument inventions has been used by NASA in the space station. Now his original Hoverboard is featured in a new exhibit in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London,” said the company.
