The Evolution of Skateboarding to the Motorized Wheelman

If you want to get your young son or daughter out of the house and away from the video games, the newest motorized skateboard called a Wheelman could very well be the solution.

A Wheelman can go over smooth surfaces or off-roading in the grass or dirt. The large wheels gives the rider options of different terrains and surfaces to cruise.

This new generation skateboard has a center mounted engine that can be gas or electric with a frame supported at each end by two-wheel. Your feet are inserted into the two wheels while standing upright. You balance like a traditional skateboard but have much greater flexibility as to where you ride.

Generally consensus says skateboarding began in the 1950’s, although no one can say who developed the first skateboard. Many attached a wooden box to an old pair of roller skates. no one was yet buying a skateboard from a store pre-made. In the sixties, skateboarding was having its first peak as a fun pastime. Skateboard companies began mass producing skateboards as single planks of wood with roller skate type wheels.

The fad faded until it restarted in the mid 70’s and continued strong through the 80’s. The technology took a leap in the way the wheels were made and their design. This catapulted the skateboard from being a pastime to being a recognized sport because of the added tricks that took skill and athleticism. There was a mild pause in the popularity of skateboarding in the 90’s where it lost its momentum. But X Games gave skateboarding the attention it needed to regain its fan base.

The evolution for the skateboard would not stand still. Motors have been added while still maintaining the same physical posture and skills used in the originally designed skateboard. The motor can be gasoline powered or electric. An example of an electric-powered skateboard is the MotoTec Wheelman V2 1000W. Its maximum speed is 20 MPH with a ride time of 1.5 hours. The frame is aluminum with a finger throttle and a cable disc brake. The recommended Age is 16+ years old.

The skateboard continues to get kids out of the house doing an athletic activity that takes practice and is physically healthy. If you are looking to acquire a MotoTec Wheelman on monthly payments while improving your credit, contact AddvantageUSA at 888-601-5527.
