Flexdex illuminated skateboards

by Mark R

These days, pretty much anything can be made to look cool with the application of some LED lighting. Of course, some might think that this tech is too “flashy”.

Whatever your viewpoint, I suppose that we have the renewed success of Tron and the long-awaited sequel Tron Legacy to thank for this LED accessorizing. We covered some gaming controllers from PDP that looked quite cool with them, so why not skateboards?

This is why Flexdex made of translucent wheels, a clear as glass polycarbonate frame, and strips of LED lights that need to be powered by 9-volt batteries.

My Source does not say how long the batteries will last. In all honesty, I just don’t know how long they can last if you are giving your board a thrashin’ on your ride. Man, am I out of touch with the skateboarding community.

I suppose that we are going to see a lot of skate parks open at night now that these skateboards glow in the dark. What am I talking about? Most skateboarders hit the skate parks after hours whether they are open or not. I mean, I guess so. Once again, I am out of touch with the skateboarding community.

The Clear29 LT longboard will sell for about $199 in colors of electric blue, red, green, orange, and white.

This type of board would never be used in a skate park, it would be too long to hit most of the ramps in an average park, it’s more for cruising on.

I agree 200% with my fellow egg Adam about these boards not being used for any type of tricks because it would damage the electrics. It’s more a Sunday easy riding glow-in-the-dark stick on wheels. You won’t see this board anywhere by any skaters because a REAL skater wouldn’t get such a sissy glowly wood to be used just for cruising. Might as well go cruise in a wheelchair.

Bullshit! This thing is awesome! And of course its not going to any skate parks. You can tell from the shape of it that it isn’t a skateboard, its a longboard. Longboards are used for cruising as you said and I think will look kinda cool at night.

Oh. My. God. This board is sick. Obviously you can tell it’s shaped like a longboard, so all those stupid comments about the shape are redundant. They’re meant for cruising around and hillbombing, and they will look INTENSE for that purpose at night. Brb, gonna order it now..
