The Cityskater was designed for last-mile travel – for example from a parking space or bus or train stop to the final destination. The study moves through the city on three wheels (two in front, one at the back) with electric power (from the rear wheel). Unlike a conventional skateboard or scooter, the Cityskater has a footboard with a separate wheel for each leg. A control rod provides the necessary stability; the skateboard is steered by intuitively shifting weight from one leg to the other. The control rod is used to start, accelerate and brake the double-board. The Cityskater operates at speeds of up to 20 km/h – perfect for bridging distances too far to cover on foot. Its range: approx. 15 kilometers.
