Awake – the premium electric surfboard company in Limhamn, Sweden reveals a new level of extreme water sports and disrupting the electric water crafts industry. Awake, based in Limhamn, Sweden, manufactures high-performance electric surfboards that redefine mobility on water.
RÄVIK, Awake’s premier creation, is the first in a developing series of electric surfboards that does exactly what the tagline suggests; it redefines mobility on water. The development of the RÄVIK is a collaboration between senior designers, electro- and mechanical engineers, software developers, and production industry professionals. Our goal has been to deliver a new benchmark within the electrical crafts segment, and no compromises have been made in our pursuit. The result: An electric machine that thrusts the rider to speeds of up to 30 knots (56 kph/ 35 mph). Just one glance is enough to sense it’s raw power, and the ride delivers. The streamlined, hydrodynamic carbon body of the RÄVIK is designed to trigger adrenaline both in and out of the water. Simply have a look, and tell us what you feel.
“The market for electric surfboards has seen a stagnation in new products that push the limits of what these machines can do. Not much has happened in respect to power and agility, and even less attention has been given to exterior design and user experience. The Awake RÄVIK completely disrupts the existing arena, and is our statement that great design and great performance belong together.” – Philip Werner, Founder and CEO
The RÄVIK features a proprietary electronics system developed in-house with components strategically chosen for building a long-term, adaptable and scalable system for application in future Awake products. Awake uses multiple safety sensors throughout the system. This includes fundamental features such as temperature monitoring and automatic system shutdown if the product is turned upside down.
The superior torque in the RÄVIK is thanks to it’s patent-pending drivetrain. Awake Direct Drive™ enables highly efficient water propulsion that bypasses the major losses that are usually experienced in traditional, jet-propelled water crafts. The handheld, wireless throttle is ergonomically designed to reflect the sophisticated power of the Awake board with a 1 inch display showing battery level, speed, and rider mode.
With patents pending, Awake is at the forefront of the development of performance electrical crafts, and the RÄVIK is just the beginning. Awake’s primary focus is to become the world’s leading electric surfboard manufacturer by 2020.
As of August 1st, Awake will start taking orders through awakeboards.com, with deliveries starting in September 2018. As a major first step into the retail world, the Awake boards can also be ordered from Awake’s trusted retail partner, Smartech att Selfridges of London.
