Triborg Skateboards from Lansing, Michigan in the US offers an off-road ESk8 since 2014. It looks handmade, well, it is handmade, but seems pretty powerful and manages almost any terrain.
Triborgs concepts are kind of unique. Their electric Skateboard has a wired remote control and only 3 wheels.
They claim that the 3 wheel design will avoid speed wobbles once you go faster. Their ESk8 makes up to 20 mph or 32 km/h.
The one wheel which is connected to the motor is actually between your feet.
This wheel is also using a dirt bike style rear suspension, which keeps the tire on the ground in almost every terrain. Rock'n Roll.
