About Lou Board
Lou Boards is a range of high-performance and lightweight next-generation electric skateboards. Why the next generation? Batteries are an internal part of the board, not an external underside.In addition, all Lou Boards have silent motors. This gives you amazing speed and performance while keeping mechanical noise to a minimum. You’ll appreciate nature and your city more when you’re hurtling through the streets or hills. In addition, the floor slab also moves in a simple and lightweight design. This makes them very manoeuverable.
