Akitio's SK-3501 U3.1 is compatible with USB 3.1 Gen 1 and may be used on USB Type-A systems via a USB Type-C to Type-A adapter.

10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2
By incorporating 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 technology, the SK-3501 U3.1 is able to deliver up to twice the speed of the USB 3.1 Gen 1 connection, which runs at only 5 Gb/s. However, the SK-3501 U3.1 is compatible with USB 3.1 Gen 1 and may also be used with USB Type-A via an adapter cable.
Reversible USB Type-C Connector with Power Delivery
The reversible USB Type-C connector enhances ease of use for connecting USB devices with a focus on minimizing user confusion for plug and cable orientation. The SK-3501 U3.1 supports power delivery (PD) over USB Type-C, providing 15W of power to laptops like the MacBook Pro (Late 2016) that support charging from a 5V/3A power source. This allows you to work with the external drive without the battery levels of your laptop dropping, even though the laptop is not plugged into any other power source.
