This is Nick out on prototype board last March in PR. I'm surprised it took him so long to get it to production.

Dependent on price, i am going to get one. Since i have to travel to kite. This looks sick.

Any guesses on price? 3k? 4k?

Thanks.

Cost in the us is going to be around $12,000.

Lot more than i expected but i guess it makes sense.

That seems pretty pricey. That is like the same price as a new jet ski. Maybe it will come down over time. I would totally buy one for 3 or 4 grand.

Seems way too spendy to me. Nothing there driving the cost close to that much.

"Driving the costs". . .Novelty and trying to recapture sunk costs quickly as I'm sure there will be competition soon.

The only upside to something at that price point is the barriers to entry is high. . . so the waters and lineups wont be as crowded with such a new tech ride.

I too am curious how long the charge lasts and how long it takes to recharge.

IMHO they nailed the video/add with the black-and-white filming and the Sinatra song.

I can't wait to try one.

How long does the battery last?
The battery duration depends on the riderís weight and speed. On average the ride time is one hour riding at 15 mph. The battery is easily interchangeable.

What is the time to recharge the battery?
2.5 hours. Just plug it in and go.

What is the max speed?
Max speed is about 25 MPH (40 KPH)
