Smart electric personal transportation devices are often quite clunky and difficult to store, but the Urmo hoverboard defies this perception by folding flat in just two seconds. When being ridden the Urmo hoverboard features a range of 12 miles and a top speed of 9mph. This places it in line with other hoverboard offerings, but the true appeal of this product lies in its ability to be stowed and hidden.
According to Felix Ballendat, co-founder of Urmo, "The folding mechanism is the key feature of the Urmo.” The folding ability of the Urmo hoverboard lies in a patent-pending mechanism that functions simply and efficiently. This system relies on metal joints built into the board that also ensure the hoverboard does not need any sort of locking mechanism when the vehicle is unfolded and in use.
