ACTON Announces BLINK QU4TRO

Featuring four-wheel drive and space-age materials, the only electronic longboard of its kind on the market.

ACTON, the leading designer and manufacturer of advanced, smart, light-weight, and innovative electric skateboards, electric skates and electric scooters, today announces its newest innovation, BLINK QU4TRO. As one of the fastest, most powerful eBoards on the market, it’s the only board that includes four-wheel drive and electric hub motors for ultimate climbing power. QU4TRO is also made of light-weight materials for easy transport, and features unprecedented engineering and design, allowing for 22 miles of cruising per charge.

In addition to launching the BLINK QU4TRO, ACTON has also added the BLINK S and BLINK S2 to its line. All three of the new eBoards utilize hub motors, which are powerful, torquey, smooth and require less maintenance. These advanced motors also allow for advanced regenerative braking, making them superior to standard belt motors. Additional specs include powerful Samsung/Panasonic battery cells, smart features via the ACTON app and integrated lights, which double as a design and safety feature. Controlled by a remote, the hands-free, lightweight boards give riders the ability to set the speed of the board.

“Our goal is to transform the way people commute and cruise around town, so we wanted to create boards that are integrated machines, far superior to what eBoards once were,” said ACTON’s Co-Founder and CEO, Janelle Wang. “These aren’t just a collection of off-the-shelf parts assembled with a few electronics; we carefully designed these next generation BLINK boards with aluminum and carbon fiber materials so they are rugged but still light-weight and easy to carry. They’re ideal for any commuter from students to the business professional.”

Each BLINK board has different features to meet the unique needs of any consumer:

  •  BLINK QU4TRO – Four-wheel drive, most powerful, amazing range and conqueror of all hills.

Specs: deck 865mm/34in, 4 hub motors, 22 miles per charge.

  • BLINK S2 – Two-wheel drive, commute and cruise, great range and effortless uphill power. Designed for commuters and students.

Acton “Blink-Board” electric skateboard controlled with your phone.

Acton is now entering the growing electric skateboard market and hoping to cruise to success on the strength of an iPhone-based remote control system.

The company’s new Blink-Board, which it unveiled here at CES 2016, is far smaller than many of the electric skateboards on the market today. While they’re modeled on so-called long boards, Acton’s Blink-Board, which is just 26.5 inches long, is designed to be more like tiny “Penny Boards.”

“It’s quite small so you can take it anywhere you want to go,” Peter Treadway, Acton’s CTO, told Mashable, adding that the board weighs 10 pounds, which might be just light enough to sling over your shoulder. It comes with a carrying strap for when you’re not riding it.

He said that most of the long boards are designed for longer commutes. “We wanted to get more people to ride the short distance who wouldn’t normally be doing it,” said Treadway.

The all electric Blink-Board comes with a remote control, but if you leave the remote behind, your iPhone, with the Acton app, of course, can double as a remote.

To ride it, you hop on the maple wood deck and hit go on the app or use the throttle toggle on the remote. “There’s no soft push start,” explained Treadway. The board charges in a couple of hours and can ride, claims Treadway, six miles on a charge. The app will keep track of the board’s charge and let you connect with the Blink-Board riding community.

With a max speed of 12 mph and a max load of 250 pounds, the Blink-Board’s wheels — or “trucks” as they’re called in skateboard lingo — are very close to the front and back edges of the board for better stability. The board is also equipped with some LED accent lights.
