The device consists of a slow-speed engine inserted in the wheels of the vehicle and a detachable battery block allowing the device to develop the speed of 36 km/hour. One charging will be enough to ride 25 kilometers. Moreover, the system of regenerative braking will charge the battery every time the driver brakes.

The device can be connected with any skate: for this purpose you need a few instruments and 30 minutes of your free time.
