Bravo Sports Partners With Altered To Launch Electric Skateboard With Remote Control

Nov 10, 2015, 07:23 ET from Bravo Sports Corp.

SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif., Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Bravo Sports Corp., global leader in recreational and sporting goods, has partnered with Altered Electric Skateboards, the original wireless electric skateboard company, to create the Fantom 1.0 Electric Skateboard, which just launched at Walmart. 

The next evolution in skateboarding, the Fantom 1.0 is controlled with a patented trigger-style wireless remote. The individually coded remote, a revolutionary device that allows for complete control, continuous acceleration and safe, even braking, only controls its corresponding board. This makes the Fantom 1.0 safer than other skateboards whose remotes work with multiple boards, which could cause accidents if used improperly.

The Fantom 1.0 Electric Skateboard is easy to ride. Along with its state of the art deck designed for stability, the patented torsion trucks eliminate wheel-bite, allowing riders to make precise turns with less effort.

With classic red and black styling, the Fantom 1.0 is designed to look like a skateboard, but under the "hood," there is so much more than trucks and wheels.  Driven by a rechargeable 100-watt electric motor, the skateboard reaches speeds of up to 10 mph and can run continuously for 40 minutes.

Smooth and quiet, the Fantom 1.0's belt-drive is designed to last through years of long rides without a loud roar. Comparable models on the market retail for well over $600, making the Fantom 1.0 a great choice for parents concerned with both safety and price.

For kids 8+, The Fantom 1.0 Electric Skateboard retails for $199 and is available at Walmart locations and online at See the Fantom 1.0 Electric Scooter on You Tube.
