About eight months ago we told you about the Mellow Skateboard Drive, which can be attached to any standard deck to turn it into an electric one. Now there’s another similar product on the market.  It’s eon, which is billed by its makers at UNLIMITED as “the first modular electric powertrain for light vehicles” thanks to its modular design that offers users a wider range of customization options.

That means that with eon, you can double up on how many motors you put on your deck for skating uphill or going farther than one can take you on a single charge—around 12 kilometers, incidentally. Its top speed is about 20 miles per hour, but the wheels are dragless so you can keep using them even with no battery.  And if you don’t have a deck there are kits that give you everything you need to become the Electric Skateboard Guy of your town.

You can check out eon’s Kickstarter listing right here, where pre-orders start at a little over $400.
