Clear29 LED Skateboards Light Up the Night

by Paul Strauss

Now I’ll start out by saying that if I even tried to skateboard during the daytime, I’d probably end up with a bloody lip and a concussion within 10 minutes, so the idea of skateboarding in the dark is completely off-limits for me. That said, these LED illuminated skateboards still look cool, and would be great for more skilled skateboarders out there.

The Clear29 LT Longboard is a clear polycarbonate skateboard, accented with bright LED lights attached to its undercarriage. Because of the placement of the lights on the underside, it provides the illusion that the skate deck is literally floating above the ground – especially when viewed from the side.

The lighting is powered by a simple 9-volt battery, but they don’t mention how long the run-time should be. But since they’re power-thrifty LEDs, I’m betting you can get in a nice long ride. In addition to the LED illumination, these 29″ x 8.5″ longboards include translucent wheels with ABEC5 racing bearings, held on by 9″ Gullwing Mission trucks for a smooth ride.

They’re available in five colors: blue, red, green, amber and white LED versions. I think they should offer a version where you can change colors yourself – or even do some sort of disco chase light sequence. But for now, you’ll have to settle for single colors. You can get your hands on the Clear29 LED skateboard over at Gadgets and Gear for $199.95 (USD).
