OLO BOARDS presented the OLO One jetboard at boot 2019.
A luxury electric surfboard which can be customised to your needs.
OLO plans to ship in spring 2019 with a delivery time for new orders of 4-5 weeks.
The OLO One jetboard is made in Germany in Norderstedt close to Hamburg.
One of the engineers brought his experience from the first Lampuga company to this project led by CEO Vitalij Reidel.
It was the first time the OLO One electric surfboard was shown to the public. Even the website is not fully up.
Check out the full interview and presentation in the video below:
The carbon fibre electric jetboard has by intent a shape close to a surfboard and offers 11kW or 15 horsepower for a top speed of 52 km/h.
The performance was limited to 15 horsepower in order to avoid the need for a sports boat license which is needed above 15 hp in some countries such like Germany.
A magnet is connected to a security leash to turn the motor off in case you have a crash.
A nice ring of LEDs is showing that the board is ready to go once the magnet is in place.
While the board has a top speed of 52 km/h it depends on the weight. According to Vitalij an 85 kg rider can still make 48 km/h.
The run time is between 20 to 50 minutes depending on the riders weight and speed. The quick charger shall charge the battery in 120 minutes.
An 85 kg rider cruising and carving shall be good for 30-35 minutes said OLO BOARDS CEO Vitalij Reidel.
The battery is controlled with a battery management for safety reasons and the remote control can be connected to a rope at the top of the board for beginners.
The board has the dimension of 239 x 72 x 16 cm and a total weight of 36 kg. This includes the 20 kg for the battery and 8 kg for the powerbox, which makes the board alone 8 kg.
The powerbox is the engine with controller and can be removed with just 2 screws for easier service.
The board comes with 2 years warranty and is selling for 24.999 EUR excluding VAT.
Several customisations such like special design of the board, the pads and the remote control are available which of course increases the price.
Something unique is a compartment in the board for you keys, smartphone, sun glasses etc. A nice idea.
The package includes the board, a case, a board bag, the remote control, a quick charger, a smartphone app and a fin set.
