    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. If you want to know how they compare to their competitors, check out our ZBoard review, Acton Blink Review, and WowGo Board review articles.

You can also get it in a variety of colors such as black, blue, red, and purple. Most importantly, it is water-resistant, unlike any competitor in this price segment. The Lou Board 1.0 starts at $449 without additional customizations.

    Features
    • This board is polyurethane, waterproof, very light electric skateboard.It also has a silent motor like the other plates from Lou. As a result, you can pay more attention to your surroundings than to the hum of your board motor.

    • The plate also has regenerative braking, so it’s efficient and long battery power. Its waterproof design combined with a strong grip design at the top can be brave in any weather conditions. On top of that, since it weighs only 4.8kg, you can also handle it well.
