The Illuminated Flexible Skateboard
Forty-six red LEDs embedded in the board’s underside infuse the entire deck with a preternatural glow. The deck is made of clear polycarbonate for a smooth ride that is easy for the novice to master while being worthy of expert-level shredding. The material’s flexibility provides a unique pressure response when pushing off or maneuvering, without unwanted “spring back” that would make for a wobbly ride. Instead, the polycarbonate absorbs vibration and softens out sidewalk gaps with ease. With or without the glowing red LEDs turned on, the clear deck allows riders to watch their feet glide over the pavement.
