Skateboarders that are looking for an easy way to transform their existing skateboard into an electric skateboard, maybe interested in a new electric skateboard drive unit that has been designed to fit all existing skateboards.
The new electric skateboard drive has been named Mellow, and has been created Mellow Boards and is the first mountable electric drive that turns any normal skateboard into an electric skateboard in just a few minutes.
Watch the video below to learn more about this unique addition to your skateboard, that is currently over on the Kickstarter website aiming to raise €100,000.
“None of the existing rides on the market could satisfy all our expectations. That’s why we designed Mellow. It’s a flexible system that easily adapts to your individual needs. It’s mountable, which means you can choose any board you like and transform it into your Electric Mellow Board. Mellow also comes with a swappable battery, giving you the freedom to ride for as long as you like.
What we love about surfing and snowboarding is the effortless floating feeling of the ride. We wanted to make sure that Mellow gave us the same feeling, so minimum weight and maximum latitude was vital, when we started prototyping. The two in-wheel motors deliver direct transmission and a performance that will let you carve powerfully, fly up hills and put a big smile on your face.
The Mellow Drive is the first ever drive system for skateboards that can be mounted under pretty much any deck. Just pick your favorite and turn it into a full on riding machine.”
