Convenient & Portable
Leafboard is more compact and light for easy portability but doesn’t sacrifice performance. It is perfect for short trips like daily commute to school, metro, grocery...and more!
We also designed a backpack which goes perfectly with Leafboard and your other daily accessories.

Easy to Ride
Leafboard is not only compact and convenient, but also very easy to ride. We didn`t go with the traditional deck size and trucks of the freestyle skateboard, but in instead we use a 9.5 inch wide deck (the same width as the one of typical longboards) and a 6 inch trucks.
We listen to many skaters when we started the design of Leafboard. So we have a deck with the kick tail to make Leafboard easy to do kick and stop, have the low U concave mold to make it comfortable for long range ride, and have pro longboard bearings, high rebound wheels and bushing to make it more stable.
Light Yet Powerful
If you like speed, Leafboard is for you! Travel up to 19 mph to get where you need to go fast.
Hills are no longer a problem with Leafboard. It can easily handle inclines that stop other electric skateboards.
A sophisticated braking system provides a safe, smooth speed reduction and stop. It also will recycle energy and increasing the mileage!
Leafboard`s deck and motor are processed with special treatment to make it water resistant.
We designed a taillight on the board for extra safety in low visibility. Turn it on or off with the Remote.
Leafboard’s quick-charge system can be fully charged in about one hour.
Leafboard has a USB outlet to charge a phone. A full charge of an iPhone 6 plus will only reduce the range by 1.25 mile.
Take A Closer Look
Speed and braking can be controlled easily with the included remote control. You can see from the screen about the battery level for both of the skateboard and itself.
Leafboard has 3 modes: ECO/SPORT/PRO. With the remote, you can switch the mode very easily.
- ECO mode: For beginners, slow acceleration, and maximum speed of 6.25 mph.
- SPORT mode: Unlock all the features.
- PRO mode: You want fly? Enjoy the speed!

How do we make Leafboard in such a Compact size and also powerful?
We use 3 layers of fiberglass mixed with 8 layers of Canadian maple for the deck and 2.5mm of carbon fiber make up the battery case. These materials are light but super strong. A 5000mAh Lithium Polymer battery and FOC ESC is embedded within the deck.
We designed a highly efficient and durable power system, a customized 1800 watt motor provides reliable, long-lasting power.
Why We Don’t Use In-wheel Motor?
- Single in-wheel motor doesn’t has sufficient power, however double in-wheel motors will be too heavy.
- External motor has been a more mature tech and it is durable than the in-wheel motor.
- The thickness of the polyurethane on the four wheels should be the same, and it is the major reason why we use external motor.
We are an experienced group of engineers, product designers, and skate park addicts who are passionate about riding great looking boards. Leafboard is a labor of love and we know you’ll be hooked after one ride and love it as much as we do. We look forward to bringing LeafBoard to the world and proving that modern skateboards can look great and maintain top performance.
Development In Progress
Note of Shipping Cost:
Every pledge for the Leafboard(s) will include an indicative cost for shipping. When finalize the package and determine the final shipping cost, we will have an update on the actual costs with you.
Risks and challenges
We are confident that the risks involved in taking LeafBoard from concept to production and onto the marketplace are minimal. Our team has the necessary talent, skills, experience, and expertise to tackle any obstacles should they arise.
Our team has been building skateboard products for many years and we have a great deal of manufacturing experience. We are dedicated and single-minded in bringing the product to market on-time and true to specifications. However, with any project unforeseen problems may arise. Some objectives that could possibly take more time than we anticipate like the FCC/CE electronic certification.
We will be transparent and on-time with our updates as the project progresses and will answer any questions our backers may have.
