Electric skateboards have been one of those cool gadgets that have been “trending” nowadays. Popular YouTube star Casey Neistat is seen riding his Boosted Board through the streets of NYC in nearly every video. He brought the electric skateboard to a lot of people’s attention but in my opinion there’s something better than a Boosted Board and that’s Lou.
#1- 3 Versions to choose from
If you’re unsure of if you’ll like e boarding, the 1.0 is the better option because it’s the cheapest and most beginner friendly. If on the other hand you know you’ll love e boarding and want to shred up the streets, the 3.0 is the way to go.
Unlike most e boards on the market the Lou Board is not as big. In fact it’s 1 inch smaller than the popular Nickel board. The board is made out of carbon fiber which is lightweight, strong and stealthy looking. It’s small enough to be carried on public transportation without a hassle and that is a huge plus. That’s probably one of the main reasons I love the Lou Board so much. Not to mention the boards weigh less than 12 pounds which is great in comparison to other e boards out there.
Don’t let size fool you. The Lou Board can reach speeds of up to 22 mph! In my opinion any faster than that is super sketchy and very scary. The board has 2 modes, mode 1 and mode 2. Mode 1 is more of a comfortable cruising speed while Mode 2 is the fast setting. The Lou Board also has regenerative braking which means as you slow down, the battery regenerates charge.
Speaking of charge, the Lou Board battery fully charges in 2 hours or less. A full charge has a range of up to 11 miles which makes Lou perfect for commuting to work and back. Oh, did I mention that the battery is interchangeable!? That’s right, if you run out of power mid trip, you can swap out and keep shredding.
Lou allows you to swap out deck plates (grip tape) to the color of you choice. They have black, red, purple, wood, and much more. Also the decks are plastic which is perfect if you’d like the paint on you own designs. I decided to do this to my purple deck plate. I posted a video on YouTube about my customization which you could watch by clicking here or by pressing play below.
#6- Hub Motors
Usually most e boards have belt driven motors, but not Lou. Instead Lou’s motors are in the wheels themselves but this doesn’t mean that torque is lost. Also when the board runs out of power it is very easy to push just like a normal skateboard. If it were belt driven, pushing would be much harder.
