Mellow Skateboard Drive

Fancy an electrified skateboard but don’t want to trade in your favorite deck? Try the Mellow Skateboard Drive, which attaches to your board in lieu of one of the standard 180mm trucks. Its solid, completely encapsulated water- and dust-proof aluminum singleframe design can take a beating while weighing little — 5.5 pounds total for the device — and gets you to speeds of up to 25 mph thanks to dual motors. High quality cells from Tesla’s supplier grant a 10 mile range, though the battery is also hot swappable and the board will free wheel when you push. It’s all controlled from an intuitive handheld thumb remote that accelerates when pushed and brakes when pulled, the latter triggering regenerative braking to recharge the batteries.
