The jet board reaches a maximum speed of 26mph and has a runtime of twenty minutes at full speed or one hour at half speed, thanks to a 960Wh lithium battery that powers the direct-drive motor. The Mertek S1 is inflatable and foldable which making it easy to move around and less prone to damage. The 2.4m board can fold to around one-third of the full size, making it easy to transport and store. Its wireless remote control features eight speeds, including emergency stop. The board includes a coiled leg rope and overboard protection killswitch.
