Lightweight Skateboard is specially designed for young people. It is a high-strength, lightweight skateboard with an adjustable wheelbase made from hollowed-out magnesium alloy as a way to use less wood. Currently, most skateboards are made of wood. The vast number of skateboards sold around the world depletes forests of trees, so Lightweight Skateboard was designed without wood to be eco-friendlier. This skateboard is die-casted using magnesium alloy and finished with CNC processing. This guarantees strength and lightness, with a striking appearance inspired by the weight, flexibility and strength of leaf veins. Versatility is key. The skateboard can be used on roads and pavements alike. It has four main characteristics: non-slip, shock absorption, adjustable wheelbase and smooth turning. The adjustable wheelbase caters to beginners, who are better suited for longer wheelbases, and experienced skaters who prefer short wheelbases. There are also plans to develop expansion modules that will improve the user experience, such as anti-collision modules and lighting modules.
