Your passion for skateboards shouldn’t be poking a hole in your bank account. Luckily, Huger Tech has launched a new Indiegogo campaign for it latest line of premium electric boards. And while all these skateboards promise a large range, their price tag (at least for Indiegogo backers) is quite small.
Each of the three new skateboards in Huger Tech’s new line is rechargeable and depends upon Huger’s ergonomic, Bluetooth-enabled remote controls. That means that you can accelerate, brake, or hit reverse with just the tap of your finger. You can also use the controller to check the battery life of a board.
All the new skateboards are composed of a durable Canadian maple wood deck and boast an IPX6 waterproof rating, which means that you can take these guys out for a spin even in inclement weather (though given the electrical component, that may not be the best idea). And of course, the Huger Tech boards come with a companion mobile app for both iOS and Android, which features an odometer, speedometer, and more.
The three styles newly available on Indiegogo are the Travel, Racer, and Classic.
The Travel Board is designed for the city commuter who needs to get from Point A to Point B as efficiently as possible.

Weighing in at 14.6 pounds, the Travel Board has a removable battery that recharges in 2.5 hours. Early backers will be able to snag this board for $500, which represents $400 off the retail price of $900…
