One of the fastest growing modes of personal transportation is the electric skateboard - with boards that can travel up to 25 mph with little to no effort, it is an attractive choice for commuters or for recreation. While riding on an electric skateboard has certain risks, no rider assumes the risk of an electric skateboard being defective or malfunctioning, particularly while traveling at a high rate of speed.

Most electric skateboards operate through Bluetooth technology where a rider uses a handheld remote to control the speed and braking of the skateboard. Many users have experienced malfunctions of the board where the braking system fails going downhill or the rate of acceleration suddenly changes during riding.

With any rapidly expanding market comes intense competition between the leading manufacturers and a race to get products into the hands of consumers. Unfortunately, this competition in the electric skateboard industry has caused some of the leading manufacturers to put electric skateboards and accessories into the market without adequate testing and has endangered thousands of users. This race to the market has also caused manufacturers to implement cost-cutting measures on boards such as using inferior materials for trucks, boards, motor mounts and other aspects of the board.
