Corridor Digital made a live action Mario Kart YouTube video. Maybe you've seen it? (Click play above if not.) Last week, Dude reader Bailey B. product tipped us off about both the video and the longboard Corridor Digital used to bring Luigi and his quest to outscore his brother to life: the Boosted Dual+, a 2,000-watt electric skateboard.
According to Boosted Boards, "Your hoverboard has finally arrived." Hmmm. I think there might be some exaggerated ad speak going on there. But. iIf the Mario Kart video action does translate 1:1 onto your own street, it's true that Boosted's 2K power and onboard sensors will have you and your longboard cruising along smoother than

The Dual+ Longboard uses a lithium battery, 3 onboard microprocessors, and speed/power sensors controlled via a handheld Bluetooth remote to adjust speeds up to 22 mph. As a safety precaution, Boosted has also designed the board's speedometer to start capped off at 10mph. As your game improves and you master navigation through Level Empty Parking Lot and Level Suburban Streets, you'll be able unlock higher speeds, all the way up to the 22mph max.
Boosted Boards have flexible bamboo decks (Loaded) and compliant wheels (Orangatang). From carving to uphill acceleration, the Dual+ handling and torque are precise and strong enough to conquer it all. The longboard has an average range of 7 miles. Total weight is 13.5 pounds, light enough for role reversal during times you need to carry it.
