Originally hitting the scene in 2017 on Indiegogo with the first generation of Spectra, Walnut Tech raised over $690,000. The Spectra X turned heads as it was the first smart and portable eBoard that allowed riders a hands-free experience with the built-in AI. Spectra X is equipped with many of the same features as its predecessors, but of course, it’s now fine-tuned and amplified. The newest feature to Walnut Tech highlights is the swappable battery pack powered by Samsung, allowing riders to go an extra 7 km (as long as you have the extra battery). Besides this feature, the Spectra boards set themselves apart with their 3 methods of control. The 3D posture control is what makes the experience hands-free. Just lean forward, back, or side-to-side to easily control the board. You can also control via remote and app. Like many electric skateboards, Spectra X is also lightweight at 7.5kg so you can take it with you wherever you go. Furthermore, the built-in GPS and continuous tracking system will give you peace of mind from theft. Spectra X is now available for $499.
