We’ve been selling skateboards for the best part of a decade and we didn’t imagine that electric skateboards would be a fully functional and popular gadget by now! But low and behold, they are.
This month, we’re celebrating one of the leading Electric Skateboard brands, Lou! You may have read our blog earlier in the year, where we reviewed their newest board, the Lou 3.0. If you missed it, you can read it here.
So as they are September’s Brand Of The Month, we thought we’d take a look at their other models, and the brand as a whole!
The Lou board is built for speed, range and reliability, but also designed with size heavily in mind. They wanted to build the lightest, fastest and most manoeuvrable electric skateboard on the market. At just 66cm’s long, this board is perfect to take anywhere on your travels.
Skaters, don’t be put off by the thought of a board you control with a button, you can also ride it without any power, meaning it can act as a regular skateboard too. As well as that, it’s water-resistant, so don’t think the rain or wet weather will stop you getting out there!
In terms of power, top speed and battery, the Lou board comes in 3 variations suited to your needs. Whether it’s to commute to the office or school, travel around the city on, or simply enjoy in your free time cruising through parks.
Other top features of the Lou board include swappable deck plates, you can go for a wooden one or a jazzy pattern (available at louboard.com), replaceable wheels so you can keep your board riding like new, and you can adjust you brakes and check your battery via the SoFlow smart app.
We got to test the 1.0 and 3.0 and can say they are both great boards. They’re easy to set up and use, and good fun once you’re up and running. That’s why we’ve chosen Lou as our Brand Of The Month for September. Check out Bobby’s review of the 3.0 below:
