Why did we make SF Special?
Since our launch last year, ZBoards have been ridden over 50,000 miles through 24 countries and the majority of the customer feedback we've heard has been: "WE WANT MORE... of everything... " With this in mind, we've developed the ZBoard San Francisco Special to give just that.
With a range of 20 miles per charge (double that of the ZBoard Pro), you will tire out before your board does. This range is made possible by the SF Special's new, high discharge 20Ah LiFePO4 battery pack, which features the largest capacity rating of any electric skateboard battery available. It also includes a new quick-charger, so even with twice the battery it will still charge just as fast.
The SF Special's battery, electronics, and tuning allow greater hill climbing by providing the motor with more power and dissipating more heat.
Stop Faster – Even Downhill:
The SF Special has increased braking force and stronger reverse power to slow down and stop with more assertion while descending hills.
The SF Special features the highest top speed and quickest acceleration of any ZBoard.
Smooth, high traction 110mm wheels give the SF Special a smoother, more comfortable, less noisy ride. You can ride the SF Special all day and not get sore.
The SF Special includes an orange deck and die-cut grip tape outlining the city's world famous skyline. This surface is designed to not wear down even after the hardest of rides.
Frequently Asked Questions:
If I purchase now, when will I receive my SF Special?
We are opening the SF Special up for pre-orders and shipping will begin on July 1 st.* Quantities are limited and those who do not pre-order are not guaranteed to receive their board within this timeline.
*If you purchase an upgrade kit, we will coordinate with you to have your board shipped back to our shop so it arrives on or near July 1st.
What if I already have a ZBoard Pro or Classic?
You can upgrade your current ZBoard to a SF Special with kits available for both Pro and Classic ZBoard models. The kit, which we will install for you, includes the SF deck with die-cut grip tape, smooth high-traction wheels, and ultra-capacity LiFePO4 battery pack with higher discharge rating. You will send your ZBoard in for installation of the upgrades and to have it custom tuned. Price for full upgrade from a Pro is $499, and from a Classic is $799, domestic shipping included both ways.
What if I just want the battery?
For those who want the added range and performance of the SF Special, but prefer to leave the appearance of their ZBoard intact, we will be offering a Performance Upgrade Package. The kit, which we will install, includes the same battery and tuning upgrades as the SF Special. For current owners wishing to maximize their performance, the upgrade from a Pro is $299, and from a Classic is $599, domestic shipping included both ways.
What if I already have smooth wheels?
If you are upgrading your current ZBoard to an SF Special, but have already purchased smooth wheels, you will be credited for the full price of the wheels on your upgrade kit order.
What if I just want the deck?
The ZBoard SF Special will only be available for limited production run, and availability and pricing of cosmetic-only upgrades is TBD.
Why are there two range ratings?
All ZBoard models are range tested under a variety of real world conditions to determine proper ratings. "Highway" range is determined under constant speed on smooth, flat pavement. "City" range is determined under normal riding conditions on flat ground, including regular stop and go on a variety of pavement conditions. Charge status, terrain, rider size, topography, and riding style all influence battery life.
