The Journey to production

The Journey to production

Production

Production

Jed Board’s intention has always been to provide customers with an enjoyable experience that stays true to the form of a longboard. User safety and experience are the forefront of our design decisions and define the standards our engineering team rises to meet and exceed with every component of our designs. In early March, members of our team traveled to China to supervise and improve all stages of production to ensure that our standards were met as part of our commitment to our customers that the Jed Board will deliver. They will continue to be stationed in Huaqiangbei until production and delivery is well underway to our customers.

Our team’s been busy testing the boards and getting feedback from riders, which we’ve used to drive some exciting improvements - ahead of starting full-scale production and delivery to our awesome customers.

Here’s a roundup of the changes we’ve made over the last six months, starting with major revisions to the core technology of the Jed Board - its drivetrain.

To keep these posts lightweight and fun, we’re going to split our mega-update into a series of posts over the next week. 

Safety is of the utmost importance to us at Jed. For the last +6 months, we've been thoroughly testing our boards with hundreds of different riders in various conditions. Our extensive telemetry data has helped us refine each component during the design and engineering process. This journey has taught us a lot about what Jed boards are capable of and how to scale up to mass production.
