Florida-based start-up Marbel is launching a crowdfunding campaign for what it claims to be the world’s lightest electric vehicle. The electric skateboard weighs in at a mere 9.9 pounds and has a range of 10 miles thanks to using carbon fiber in combination with Kevlar in the composite deck.

“For range, we worked long and hard on this and 10 to 11 miles seemed to be the sweet spot for most of our test riders,” says Belcher. “We have the ability to add more range down the road if customers really ask for it, but if we do add more range it would mean sacrificing on weight.”
