Happy Easter weekend everyone!
Our BLINK S keeps getting more and more incredible reviews from our backers. Thank you all very much for your support! Today, we’re excited to announce a new feature for the BLINK S, S2 and QU4TRO – The Replaceable Hub Motor Shells.
- Easy solution for the wears on the Hub Motor wheel
- Extend the life of your BLINK Board
- New set of magnets for a smoother starting and stopping experience.
If you are in need of them now, you may order them here. We expect to have them in stock by next week.
A ‘Tutorial’ Video for replacing the Hub Motor Wheel will also be posted on our site.
More BLINK S are on the Way!
Our next shipment of BLINK S is arriving!!! It’s scheduled to be at the Los Angeles port by next Monday, 4/17. And we expect it to make it to our warehouse by Thursday, 04/21 (Hopefully sooner) or as soon as it clears all logistics and customs processes. We will then start fulfilling the remaining Indiegogo campaign backers and all pre-orders.
We are finalizing the legal and logistic procedures with our distributor in France. The reason for the delay is that we needed to set up a tax representation in EU to legally import and distribute products to our backers. We apologize for taking this long but the process is a lot more complexed and time consuming than expected.
We absolutely love the planet we live on and respect the government’s environmental regulations. In order to comply with all regulations. We are in the process of applying for a special treatment to our boards and as soon as this is complete, they will be on their way! More info can be found here.
Shipping has started to countries without distributors. Backers in many countries in Asia have already received their tracking numbers. As we have fans from over 40 countries around the world, logistics/time may vary from region to region. If you are not sure when your BLINK S is going to be shipped, feel free to contact us.
Production is happening now! Our manufacturing and supply-chain team is working their booty off to complete the production of the BLINK S2. But we are expecting a 3-5 more days in addition to our original plan and the shipping of BLINK S2 from our factory will start in the week of April, 24th. We sincerely apologize for the extra delay – almost there!
We have some exciting progress on the BLINK QU4TRO! Our design team has gone through many design upgrades and fine tuning (as well as some heated discussion). However, the main structure has since been completed and locked! We’ll have our new prototype ready by end of April and can’t wait to share with you what we’ve done! You will LOVE it!
How and when do we release blog updates?
Bi-weekly updates are shared on our blog. Some of the content included is updated shipping dates, and updates on the product. We also provide any updates that affect our customers or anything we feel that is important to share with our ACTON Community.
Have a great Easter weekend!
