For this update we have some exciting news straight from today's Computerbild Awards in Berlin, Germany. We're stoked to announce the Inboard M1™ Electric Skateboard has won the Golden Computer for Innovation of the Year!
For those unfamiliar with the publication, Computerbild is one of the most popular tech magazines in Europe with distribution in nine countries. Every year they host the Golden Computer Awards, where 96 nominees in 12 categories compete to take home top honors.
Inboard CEO Ryan Evans accepted the award from World Rally Car Champ Sébastien Ogier after he rolled up to the podium in style on the M1.
The M1 earned Computerbild Innovation of the Year for it's forward-thinking design in the field of lightweight electric transportation. The Manta Drive™ in-wheel direct drive motor was a standout feature for the editors of Computerbild for offering smooth acceleration, regenerative braking, and an accompanying swappable battery while still allowing the M1 to maintain the clean look of a traditional longboard. Check out all the additional features and preorder your M1 here.
We'd like to thank the editors and readers of Computerbild for recognising the M1 with this incredible honor. We'd also like to thank YOU, our amazing backers, for helping us get to this point. There's no way we would be here without your feedback, trust and endless support!
