Linky 2.0 Foldable Electric Longboard

Longboard, as the name implies, is not exactly the most portable when you are on it. It is typically long and more cumbersome than regular skateboards. Up to this day, I still cannot comprehend why would anyone bring such a huge thing to lectures. But here’s a solution that makes bringing a longboard to campus sensible: Linky 2.0 Foldable Electric Longboard. I might as well rest my case because the product name is pretty much self-explanatory.

Linky 2.0 Foldable Electric Longboard

Billed as the world’s first foldable electric longboard, Linky 2.0 features a unique folding system that allows it to be, well, folded down and tucked into a small backpack or a trolley

In longboard form, it measures 85 cm (2.8 feet or 33.5 inches) long, 31 cm (1 foot or 12.2 inches) wide, and 13 cm (5.1 inches) tall and it folds down to just 40 cm (1.3 feet or 15.7 inches) long, 31 cm wide and it is just 14 cm (5.5 inches) tall. It is not just ultra-portable when you don’t need it; it is lightweight too, tipping the scales at just 5.8 kilograms (about 12.8 pounds).

It folds and unfolds in seconds, allowing for a seamless transition from travel mode to carry-on and vice versa. Because it is powered, you will take the leg work out of traveling so you will not be drenched in sweat when you reach your destination
