Those wishing their skateboard came with a motor of some sort can rejoice at the invention of the Boosted Board. Founded through a Kickstarter campaign, the Boosted Board offers skaters the chance to ride an entirely electrical board.

The Boosted Board is described by its creators as being "the world's lightest electric vehicle." This fun motorized skateboard creatively combines speed, portability and agility all into one fun design. The Boosted Board comes with 2000-watts of power allowing you to travel up to 20-mph. Users can charge their board in less than 90 minutes and enjoy playing around with the wireless remote that allows you to break and throttle the board. Despite the addition of a motor the Boosted Board only weighs a mere 15-pounds. Stats for Lightweight Electric Skateboards Trending: Older & Buzzing
