The LaGrange L1 Difference
Our motorized skate truck (patent pending) is an easy, bolt-on solution to convert any skateboard into an electric vehicle. Our proprietary wheel hub easily converts any standard skateboard wheel into the drive wheel for use with the LaGrange L1. New and experienced skaters alike love the feel of non-stop cruising and going fast, while electronic motor braking takes the pain out of stopping. Plus, when your finger is off the throttle, your board can coast and ride like a traditional longboard.Wait. There’s no battery on that board!
For our completes and the intended kit configuration, the battery is separate from the board (carried in a backpack), which preserves the traditional skateboard weight and handling, and also allows for easy carrying and swapping of multiple batteries for extended travel range. The battery pack plugs into the board (don’t worry, it’s equipped with an emergency quick-disconnect power cable), and you control the speed and braking via wireless remote. With your own kit, or just the LaGrange L1 truck, you can, of course, put the battery wherever you like; even attached to the board.
Change Your World, Change Your Ride. We’re not going to tell you what you already know about the advantages of convenience, cost savings, etc, etc, that an electric skateboard provides as a portable electric vehicle.
