The Sk8-Booster is an innovative and high-tech e-drive that can be easily attached to your existing skate deck to make it more powerful than ever.

What's great about this particular e-drive is that it doesn't have to be screwed directly onto your board or its trucks. Rather, the Sk8-Booster clamps onto the board's edges and tightens into place at a few twists of a bolt. Once clamped on, the e-drive is capable of helping you achieve a top speed of 25 km/h.

Ultimately, what the Sk8-Booster offers is flexibility and the advantage of not having to commit to either regular or electrically boosted skating. The use of bolts means you can throw on the accessory if you want a powered ride, but can easily take it out if you'd rather power your own skate by yourself.
