MODES With the ability to select pre-set modes, and even customize your own, Vision allows the Rider to perfect the Monolith’s settings to suit their level of riding. Beginner: Our beginner mode makes it easy and safe for anyone to ride a powered skateboard. If this is your first time on a powered skate (or any skate for that matter), the beginner mode will get you up and riding by reducing the overall top speed and reducing the acceleration curve. Advanced: When you’re ready to take your riding to the next level, our Advanced mode gives the progressing rider more acceleration and top speed. Eco: With Eco Mode you can go further! Our motor controller continuously monitors and analyzes the Manta Drive’s performance. This allows the Monolith to automatically adjust its speed and acceleration to ensure the rider gets the most range out of the board given the current riding conditions FEATURES Lock It Down: With the Inboard Passcode Lock, simply lock your board with one swipe from the dashboard using our intuitive interface. On The Fly Updates: Download and push Firmware updates to your Monolith Board via the Vision Mobile App. This way you and your board are always up to date with the most advanced firmware for optimized performance.
