Kymera, World’s First Electric Body Board Can Travel at 30 MPH
Water sports keeps seeing the advent of new devices which are often no more than expensive toys. But the development of the world’s first electric jet body board Kymera is sure to create a buzz and attract the attention of all the water sports enthusiasts. It is more than a toy and its beauty lies in its simplicity. It is basically a simple body board but it has been outfitted with an electric motor capable of moving the board at 30 mph. The electric motor gets its power from a lithium ion battery that has sufficient power to keep the motor running for 60 minutes.
Brain Child of Jason Woods, California Based Designer
The concept is sure to receive an enthusiastic response as it is eco friendly and can be very effectively used for rescue operations apart from recreation. It is light and convenient to carry and more importantly it is much cheaper than any other comparable device. However the interesting concept was originally developed for purely personal recreational purposes. Jason Woods, the California based designer is the brain behind this interesting concept. Perhaps he had also not expected the kind of response and interest his creation has generated amongst the rescue teams and lifeguards. The Eco-friendly watercraft is an innovative product that is cheaper and more convenient to use than any boat that is used for a rescue operation.
Kymera is Built to be Light But Very Powerful
Kymera weighs only 48 lbs and can easily be carried by hand. The board is built around a roto-molded hull which is considered ultra durable. It features a 1000wh Lithium Polymer battery which is swappable and packs sufficient power when charged fully to keep the board moving at top speed for 60 minutes. It is sure to attract more people to water sports. It is designed for riding in the unique heads up position. There have been other electric watercraft and jet packs but the experience of riding the Kymera is unique. It has power and speed and you literally ride the waves. And most importantly, its affordable pricing makes it accessible to practically everybody and that’s why there is no doubt that the concept will surely be a huge success.
