About this project
Never before has there been an electric ride on product with motorized wheels that are so easy and quick to change, giving Lou a longer life span and a continually fresh ride.
With the double drive, she is more powerful than any electric short board on the market, yet she offers a simplicity and elegance that has never before been seen in electric ride ons. Unlike other electric ride ons, Lou’s motor is silent so you can hear the rush of the wind while you ride.
Lou combines what we know about great skate design with the latest electric technology, providing the lightest, fastest and best ride on the market today. At first glance, Lou is just another pretty face because she looks and feels like your favorite skateboard but she is so much more. Look inside Lou...
Lou is the revolutionary board to get you where you are going, go for a cruise, or practice some tricks. Lou combines effective transportation with the freedom of skateboarding.
Risks and challenges
The Love Affair with Lou:
We are tech lovers, passionate skaters and e-mobility experts. We put our heads together to create a board with Swiss quality and engineering that would be a viable, alternative mode of transportation to appeal to the skater inside of you. We wanted to be in love with the ride. We wanted to have an electric board we could be passionate about and we wanted to take it with us everywhere.
With our experienced and dynamic team, it turned out that creating the technology for the board was the easy part. The development of hiding the battery in the deck, creating the ability for replaceable wheels and creating the smart phone app all went smoothly. But naming this new beloved invention proved to be our biggest challenge. How could we give such a great new concept in transportation an ordinary name? The name should be strong, electric, fast, cool, trendy, easy to say, easy to spell, multicultural etc. etc.
Ask any of our team members, no name was good enough. We would throw names on the table. Some were taken by other inferior boards, others thrown out because they didn’t measure up to the quality of our invention. We went through every letter of the alphabet in multiple languages.
Until one day, we learned that a Scottish word for love is Lou and the team agreed wholeheartedly. The Lou board was born.
The Lou team has been working together for the past two years. We are experienced in e-mobility products and have a dynamic line of electric ride on products that is popular in Switzerland.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
