If you like the idea of an electric skateboard, but you love your current setup, you need to check out eon: the first modular electric powertrain. Dreamed up by a group of engineers passionate about riding, racing and extreme sports, eon makes any skateboard electric with a modular power train setup that weighs just over 3lbs. The hub motors are dragless, so you can still coast freely even when you exhaust the 12km per charge or you’re tired of cruising at a little over 20mph. Since the kits are also modular, you can double them up for additional range or hill climbing. And if you can’t be bother to upgrade your existing board, or you don’t own one, there are full eon board kits available that are ready to go out of the box.
