We've all dreamed about owning one, but unfortunately they wont be available until 2015.... if the movie is correct.

The ZBoard...

The ZBoard is a weight-sensing electric skateboard. To ride it you simply lean forward to go and lean back to stop. Its a great way to complete short commutes and a blast to ride. Learn more about the ZBoard here.

Hoverboard + ZBoard + Michael J. Fox Foundation = !!!

Now to celebrate October 21st - exactly two years until Back to the Future Day - we are excited to announce the limited edition ZBoard Hoverboard, with proceeds going to the Michael J. Fox Parkinson's Foundation.

Great Scott!

With custom grip tape, multi-colored footpads, a pink deck, and a pink battery box, this board looks like something out of a movie.

1.21 Gigawatts?

Nope - the ZBoard Hoverboard runs on a 20 Ah Lithium battery. And though it can't hit 88 mph or take you back in time, the ZBoard Hoverboard is still plenty capable of taking you where you need to go as seen in the chart below:

"When this baby hits 18 miles per hour"

Though the board is capable of high speeds, the throttle is totally variable. Lean forward a little bit to go walking speed, and lean a little bit more to hit the top speed of 18 mph.

The ZBoard is also equipped with regenerative braking, which make it safe to ride down hills and helps it get a carbon footprint equivalent to 1500 miles per gallon.

The Michael J. Fox Parkinson's Foundation

All of net proceeds will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research. Team Fox is the grassroots fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Each year, more than 1,600 Team Fox members worldwide turns their passions and interests into unique fundraising events which, to date, have helped to raised nearly $20 million for Parkinson’s research.

Letter from the Founders

From early in the development of the ZBoard, people often compared it to the Hoverboard from Back to the Future Part II.  Its hands-free operation has inspired freedom and fun for friends, customers, viewers, and kids at heart of all ages all around the world.  Although the ZBoard doesn’t truly “hover”, it does give the feeling and thrill of floating over the ground as you surf the sidewalks to your destination. 

To celebrate Back to the Future Day this October 21st, we are excited to announce the ZBoard Hoverboard, a limited edition electric skateboard inspired by the Hoverboard in the 1989 movie.  

With this model, we’re embracing our inner movie nerd, while doing what we can to support a great cause.  Proceeds from this model will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, in honor of his tireless work as an advocate for those living with the debilitating neurological disorder, and of course, for his performance as Marty McFly. 

This is an important personal issue to me, as Parkinson’s Disease has affected the past three generations of my family, and may affect me one day as well.  It profoundly impacts quality of life for those afflicted as they gradually lose the ability to control muscle movement, concentration, and communication.  Some have described the later stages as being trapped in one’s own body, before it can eventually cause death.  There is unfortunately no known cure and much remains to be learned about how it works and how it can be prevented. 

This limited release of the ZBoard Hoverboard is an excellent opportunity to raise money for an incredible cause, while adding some fun to your commute.  We hope it can inspire you to rethink the way you get around.  One day, maybe where we’re going we won’t need cars – or roads.  It’s not 2015 yet, after all.
