Ronnie Sarmiento reports the BoardUp folding skateboard paired with the Mellow Drive weighs 16.8 pounds.
Mellow itself reports the Quinboards Micro-Me deck paired with the Mellow Drive weighs 13.2 pounds.
The few extra pounds for the BoardUp — which can fold smaller than the Micro-Me — seems worth it for the longer stance.
And even though I keep referring to the Mellow Drive, alternatives such as the Onan Booster, Ride Unlimited’s R Kit, and DIYeboard’s swappable battery kit still remain as possibilities. It seems every possibility brings with it just about the same weight!
