If you have never experienced an electric skateboard, you are missing out on a lot. Back in the day, these babies weighed over 40 pounds, cost an arm and a leg and had a pitiful cruising range of only 5 miles. However, they have technologically advanced to the point that they now present a real threat to conventional skateboards, particularly in terms of price and performance. One of the electric skateboards that has definitely been making ‘waves’ in the skateboard world is LuooV Electric Skateboard called the Street Devil.
The LuooV Electric Skateboard is in a class of its own. Powered by an 8Ah Lithium Ion Battery, this skateboard is outfitted with a 1200 watt motor that easily reaches speeds of 20 miles an hour with a cruise range of 18 miles on a single charge. Run out of charge? No problem since the complete recharge time is a quick 2 hours and you’ll be back on the move. The LuooV also comes with a 2.4 Ghz variable Bluetooth remote control so that you can have perfect control of your speed.
Made out of 7 layers of Canadian Maple that measures 38 x 9 inches the LuooV only weighs 14 pounds and can support a weight of 230 pounds. With its 80% high rebound wheels you can rest assured that your ride will be smooth as it can be. The LuooV’s Regenerative Variable breaks also give you supreme control for those slow slacks that charge your battery as well.
One of the more seasoned LuooV riders Craig Cockerill calls the Street Devil “the Tesla of last mile vehicles.” Well, Luoov says that that they are not trying to replace the skateboard, just the car! We wish them all the luck with that one.
