Riders can control the Marbel board using a wireless handheld controller, which is fitted with a thumb slider that users can slide up or down to accelerate or brake. The board also a built-in WiFi module which allows for highly advanced controls via an accompanying iOS and Android app. The physical skateboard itself consists of 180 mm longboard trucks and 76 mm wheels.
