I supported (ordered) the ZBoard 2 with $ I earned in June 2015. The company said the electric skateboard would ship by February 2016. They failed this promise. And I don’t expect to see it live any time soon. I got this update today:
The ‘ZBoard 2: The Most Advanced Electric Skateboard’ team just posted:
ZBoard 2 Firmware Developments and Progress
Since our last update we’ve been working towards dialing in the ZBoard’s firmware. Previously we were expecting to finalize this firmware in early April and though it has improved considerably in the last month, it unfortunately was not ready on time. In this update we will explain in detail the challenges we’re navigating and our path moving forward.
Check out the ZBoard 2 website along with our latest projected schedule moving forward.
Overall, the Z2 is truly exceeding our performance expectations and only small corner cases need further tuning. We’re confident that once those are in the rear view mirror we’ll be able to quickly ship boards. On your first ride you’ll know that it was worth the wait.
We deeply apologize for the delays and we thank you for your continued patience and incredible support – without you there would be no ZBoard.
Ben, Geoff, and the ZBoard Team
