The Lacroix board is slick.
I love how Lacroix integrated the batteries into the board. There’s none of that boxy compartment you see even on expensive electric skateboards.
I want it just from looking at it.
But the Lacroix Board is more than looks. It claims to be the fastest and have the longest range.
Lacroix Board vs Other Electric Skateboards
The Lacroix Board has a top speed of 33 mph (54 km/h). It can go as far as 37.5 miles (60 km) on a single charge.
In comparison, the Carvon Evo 4WD can go up to 50 mph (80 km/h) and the Metroboard has a range of up to 55 miles (88 km).
The Carvon Evo 4WD may be faster but the Lacroix Board has a better range at 37.5 miles (60 km) compared to Carvon Evo 4WD’s 25 miles (60km).
The fastest Metroboard go only go up to 24 mph (38 km/h). Again Lacroix Board’s top speed is 33 mph (54 km/h).
The Lacroix Board may not be the fastest or have the longest range, but they have a good balance between range and speed. It makes a great well-rounded electric skateboard.
When you’re riding an electric skateboard, comfort matters. Vibrations from the board can quickly tire you.
Boosted Boards are known to be comfortable to ride because the board absorbs vibrations. Boards that flex well tend to be good at absorbing vibrations.
A Lacroix Board flexes too, though it seems a bit less than the Boosted Board. But the Lacroix Board uses pneumatic tires (air-filled tires), which makes the ride smoother.
You don’t have to worry about small bumps that would normally stop boards with urethane wheels. You can even go offroad.
The Lacroix board is also very wide at 10.75 inches with 15.5 inch trucks so there’s enough space for your feet. Also, the curves of the board makes it feel natural to use.
TL;DR (Too Lazy; Didn't Read)
- Top Speed 33 mph (54 km/h)
- Range 37.5 miles
- Flexible natural feeling board
- Pneumatic tires
- Comfortable (minimal vibrations)
- Pneumatic Tires
- 2 Large 2,550 Watt Motors
- Battery used same type used by Tesla
- Full charge in 3.5 hours
- Regenerative braking can charge up to 10% of battery
- Water Resistant (avoid puddles)
- Widest board on the market (10.75 inches)
- Carbon fiber enclosure
There are 60 Samsung 30Q batteries on a Lacroix Board DSS60 model enclosed between 5 carbon fibre compartments. This design makes sure the batteries don’t get in the way of the board flex.
The batteries used are the same ones people use on vape mods or the ones on Tesla cars. So if the batteries on the board doesn’t hold as much charge as it used to, you can easily replace them.
You can expect the battery performance to drop to 70% after about 300 charge cycles.
While the batteries are replaceable, they’re not swappable. It takes 3.5 hours for a full charge. Braking while going down a long hill can charge up to 10% of the battery.
