Update #8 - Dual version is confirmed
over 1 year ago – Thu, Jun 29, 2017 at 03:49:14 PM

You want it, you got it!

Dear XTND backers,

We have great news for you! Our engineering team has been working really hard to grant your request for two motors and we’re proud to say they did an outstanding job.

The XTND Board will now also be available with two motors! This upgrade, however, has to come with several significant changes. It primarily concerns the truck design because it requires more cables. Moreover, it is also necessary to adjust the whole control system and electronics. Nevertheless, it’s nothing we couldn’t do! Since we’re launching both the pre-production and production phase after the campaign, we’re still able to incorporate these changes into it.

If you’re alright with a bit of additional weight (2.2 lbs / 1 kg), what you’ll get in return is better output, faster acceleration, and better hill climb. Of course, the maximum speed could also be higher, but we think 28 mph (45 km/h) is more than enough. Moreover, the motors will heat up less and distribute the heat better, which means better efficiency and range.

As we promised, we’ll add several add-ons to the Reward section a week before the end of the campaign where you’ll also find the second motor. We’re sure you understand that this upgrade can’t be completely for free as it involves quite extensive changes. The second motor will be available for $150. It’s the lowest price possible since, unfortunately, motors are the second most expensive component after the batteries.

We hope you’re as pleased and excited as we are about this. We’re incredibly grateful that you keep pushing us forward and helping us improve the XTND Board. We’re more than happy to oblige because we want you to be absolutely satisfied with our board.

Update #7 - 2nd stretch goal unlocked
over 1 year ago – Thu, Jun 29, 2017 at 11:18:58 AM

Free set of wheels for everyone

Hello XTND backers!

Today kicked off with great news! We’ve reached the second stretch goals, which means everyone will get a free set of spare wheels of your choice. Now you can enjoy twice as many kilometers on your XTND Board. And, you can choose from two options.

1. Street wheels

Riding qualities of these wheels are a lot like standard longboard wheels. They have a smooth surface without any pattern and with a perfect adhesion. They are ideal for well-kept roads and sidewalks.

2. Terrain wheels

These wheels are similar to the street ones but with several alterations that make them more suitable for a more demanding and wet terrain. They have a pattern for a better adhesion on a rougher terrain and a softer polyurethane mixture that makes riding on bumps more comfortable.

You’ll be able to choose the wheels according to your preference after the end of the campaign in a survey that we’ll send you.

Now, let’s make it to $400,000 and conquer the next stretch goal!

Update #6 - A few changes for the better
over 1 year ago – Wed, Jun 28, 2017 at 04:36:48 PM

Hello XTND backers,

As we already mentioned, we have a few surprises for you that we hope will make you happy. We’re putting out a short update with a couple of changes in the stretch goals that we adjusted to fit the campaign better. We’re incredibly grateful for your support so we want to give you back as much as possible in return. We have one last week to go so let’s make it count.

$200,000 - Customization

Every XTND Board will be tailored according to your preferences and it will bear your name and your backer number. You will be able to choose between two types of wheels (street or terrain) and two colors of the board (Jet Black or Silver Fox). The board will also be adjusted to your weight.

NEW - $300,000 - Free set of wheels

Every backer will get a spare set of wheels of their choice for free. Riding the XTND Board is fairly addictive and we don’t want you to worry about anything stopping you from enjoying the ride every day. The wheels are extremely easy to change - it doesn’t take an engineer or more than a minute to take care of it.

NEW - $400,000 - Free travel bag

Every backer will get a travel bag for free. At XTND we love traveling and we want you to travel without having to make compromises on comfort or safety. The travel bag will keep your board safe from bumps, dirt, and humidity. It will also have compartments where you can store all the necessary accessories.

NEW - $500,000 - Voice control

Not only does the XTND Board obey your every command, now it’ll literally listen to you, too. You can set voice commands through your smartphone or smartwatch to see the miles remaining, the battery status, your average speed, or use it to turn the lights on and off, and many other features.

$1,000,000 - Special surprise

We are preparing something exciting for you, but we don’t want to spoil the surprise just yet. We can tell it’ll be huge, though.

Update #5 - A few things worthy of mentioning
over 1 year ago – Wed, Jun 28, 2017 at 01:20:18 PM

Dear XTND backers,

We’d like to share some of our great news and recent accomplishments with you here.

XTND is one of the 500 most promising early-stage tech startups

We’ve recently taken part in the prestigious technology event in Europe, the Pioneers Festival in Vienna where we met 2500 other tech founders, innovation executives, investors, and journalists that are shaping the future. The event was mostly focused around the future of transport, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality. We learned a lot of new things that inspired us how to make the XTND Board even better. And, we’re proud to say that the Pioneers Festival named XTND one of the 500 most promising early-stage tech startups of 2017.

XTND is the dark horse of the most promising young Czech companies

Another of the latest accomplishments is that Forbes named us one of the best Czech startups of 2017. Though we’re not among the TOP 10 yet, the jury composed of investors, journalists, and other experts, say we deserve a special attention because of our potential to make it big. Forbes especially appreciates our innovative attitude and vigor.

We’re very pleased with these achievements and hope that you share it with us. Nevertheless, this is just the beginning of what we believe is a promising future ahead of us. Thank you all for your amazing support. Stick around for more updates that we have for you.
