LycaonBoard was founded to offer accessible electric skateboards for eskate lovers at a revolutionary price.
Arthas, an eskate lover and the founder of LycaonBoard, had been living in the East of Africa. He loves Lycaon dogs when he was volunteering there. When he decided to build his own brand of electric skateboard, Lycaon is the first name came into his mind.
Lycaon, also known as the African wild dog, painted dog, is a highly social animal. They cooperate as a team while hunting and take care of the tribe. Arthas hopes the team could be a group people love eskating and have strong bonds as Lycaon does.
Lycaon is one of the top 10 fastest land animals in the world, hunting by approaching prey silently, then chasing it in a pursuit clocking at up to 44 mph (70 km/h) for 10 to 60 minutes. That's the vision of how LycaonBoard should perform- Speed & Stamina.
Says Arthas: It's now a hard time and also a good time to enter the electric skateboard market. As for the hard time, there are already many established eboard companies. It might be difficult to be recognized as a new brand. As for the good time, the technology is well developed, which allows us to control the cost at a reasonable price for more eskate lovers to have fun with their desirable boards.
Speed, range, ride, control, convenience & cost-These are the elements what we would focus on when selecting a board. One always comes at the expense of the other. The essence of building a fine board is to find the balance. LycaonBoard strives to build board running smoothly faster and further as the Lycaon dogs do.
Electric skateboard is more limited compared to traditional skateboard for its speed and riding mode, but not necessarily dull and boring. LycaonBoard integrates more interesting design with the board, allows more visual enjoyment with the strong mechanism.
Arthas builds LycaonBoard simply because he wanted to customize a perfect board for himself. And he believes everyone would love it if the board could fit his/her specific need. For sure it is impossible for companies to customize boards for everyone. But your opinions are attached great importance when LycaonBoard design a new board. Come join LycaonBoard to make eboards better for a ride.
When getting a new board, we always want to purchase from a company who would stay there and take responsibility. Founded by an eskate lover, Arthas believes LycaonBoard would inspire a new mode where eboard seller & customer should bond together. LycaonBoard offers suggestions and strategy for a mechanical issue. Customers would feedback with refinement under practical circumstances. This dynamic balance would make electric skateboard better and better for more eskate lovers.
Safety comes first. The mechanic flaw might cause danger to life. Rational board building and rigorous experiments ensure every board to be ridden smooth and safe. LycaonBoard team would also manually test out the board before launching. Stay with a board company who actually rides!
