The Mellow In-Wheel Motors
This is where the Mellow Drive brings its power to the streets. Two custom made in-wheel motors deliver high performance and top speeds of up to 40km/h (25mph) with virtually no noise.
Completely encapsuled they are water and dust proof. Because Mellow wants you to feel like you’re still riding a skateboard and not “the next hoverboard” you can still push and freeride like a traditional skateboard or longboard.

“How quick do the wheels wear off and how can I replace them?”
-This definitely depends on how you ride your board. If you slide a lot with your board they will of course wear off more quickly. Generally the wheels of the Mellow Drive are very robust. We would be impressed if you would have to change the wheels once a year. To replace them just unscrew the wheel with a regular skateboard tool, slide off the used wheel and slide the new one back on.
“Are you also going to offer different wheels?”
-Yes, after the initial production phase Mellow will stock up shop with a variety of wheels in different sizes, hardnesses and shapes.
The first ever drive system for skateboards that can be mounted on any deck. Just unscrew your rear truck and replace it with the Mellow Drive, simple as that.
So if you think, “This looks like nothing else I’ve ever seen.”, then you’re damn right. With this concept Mellow is challenging existing electric board standards in terms of design, quality and sustainability.
Mellow is a state of the art product “Made in Germany” that comes with a solid 2 year warranty.
Mellow is the first mountable electric drive that turns any normal skateboard into an electric skateboard – within minutes.
