Let there be ESK8 lights

So what do you use to see and be seen?

Currently I’m running shredlights.

But i also have these modified shredlights im yet to use.

Need to wire them to a power source.

I also have these im yet to use.

Has its own power supply anf bluetooth features.

Now everything i have i feel like it only helps me be seen. I used to have a good light on my remote so i could see but it broke.

I want to see peoples lighting solutions.

Just found a great cheep lighting solution on amazon :

Just received mine today and not only is it incredibly bright but it also runs of between 12V and 60V so it will run directly from your sk8 battery.

I have mine wired so that i can plug it into my charge port for power whilst riding :slight_smile:

That’s a good light but make sure that mounting bracket doesn’t break. Mine broke from rattles in less than a week. Still looking for a good cheap light that won’t vibrate apart.

do you have a picture of how it broke?

That’s pretty awesome! Looking into this for sure.

Here is how it broke. I had it layered up like deck->washer->mount->washer->nut, so it was secure as could be. The rattles just got to it eventually.


This mounting system fared a bit better, but with 2 of them they still broke after time. This system suck ass though because a single mount can pull away from the light unit and damage it which is worse than just the mount breaking.

Now I’m using a flashlight taped to my remote, but it’s not ideal. Next I will try a p clamp to strap the flashlight to my deck.

I wonder if making a mounting bracket that uses super soft bushings to soak up vibrations would help.

yeah there is just too much weight on these thin walls.

When I tried it I thought they would flex rather than break like my thick other ones would.

Boy was I wrong lol

the bracket seems quite solid however i think im going to make something custom anyway.

Just trying to get it into fusion now :slight_smile:

I quite like how the bracket attaches to the light, so if you make something that doesn’t fall apart let me know, I’d want one.

well depends on the material. not all like being bend.

btw what lights would you recommend to make your board into a disco?

thats your first post, can you link the product or name?
Edit: What i mean is that there a million different led lights, but i don’t want to buy the trashy ones.

Nope lol.

I got them from @hyperion1 no idea where he got them

Please keep us updated if you create a bracket! I have the same light! :smiley:
