In-Wheel Motors

  • Riding the Mellow Drive feels like riding a wave – lots of power with a smooth acceleration right up to the topspeed.

  • The two in-wheel motors can easily accelerate you to top speeds of up to 25mph.

  • Safety first! The Mellow Drive comes with not just one but two braking systems.

The Reinvention of the wheel

This is where the Mellow Drive flexes its muscles. The two in-wheel motors can accelerate you to top speeds of up to 25mph.

Excellent Excelleration

A look under the hood of the Mellow Drive reveals a serious power machine. The data sheet of the custom made motors promise 6Nm (3Nm each), 1000 Watt per motor and a topspeed of up to 25mph. In real life it means that this rear wheel drive accelerates you from zero to hero at full thrust all the way. If you compare the performance of a Mellow Drive to automotive standards the board (without a rider) provides the same boost as a 500HP supercar.

Fly Up Grades-No Sweat

Living in a hilly area? No sweat! The Mellow Drive can climb 15 degree slopes. With the uphill performance of the Mellow Drive you’ll leave every cyclist gasping.

Back Up Breaks

A reliable break is crucial for a motorized skateboard. That's why the Mellow Drive has not one but two breaking systems. A dual regenerative brakes that recycle breaking energy into battery power, and a secondary breaking resistor in the frame that allows you to slow down even when the regenerative brake has switched off. It also functions as a heat sink to protect and ensure longevity of your motors. All this combined gives you the extra safety you need to feel confident going downhill.


Recharge your battery with every braking maneuver.


A second braking resistor doubles up the braking power of the Mellow Drive.


We equipped the Mellow Drive with the most advanced braking system to keep you safe at all times.

Water & Dust Proof

It can take the rain - if you can. The Mellow drive is IP65 waterproof - meaning a puddle or splash won't wreck your drive. We conditions shouldn't stop you - but always be cautious and slow down in wet conditions.

Mellow Drive Wheels

These wheels represent elegant understatement. They disguise the powerful motors of the Mellow Drive beautifully.

Friction within the Mellow motors has been reduced to a minimum. In contrast to a belt driven board the motors of the Mellow Drive allow you to freewheel like a regular skateboard. So even if you run out of juice while riding you can easily push your way home.


The wheels itself can be replaced once they are worn down. All you need is a skateboard tool and a new set of rims.

Hidden Power Connections

To shield the cables that run from the motors to the electronics as well as possible we embedded them into the custom made truck of the Mellow Drive.

The tech behind the power

The motors for the Mellow Drive have been engineered from scratch to provide you with an unprecedented ride.


    The stator of each Mellow motor consists of 12 single wound teeth. This custom made construction allows for more wire to get onto the stator, which brings more current and thus more torque.


    The magnets in the Mellow motors are special arched magnets. They have a higher efficiency than flat magnets and prevent the loss of torque due to air gaps between the magnets and the stator.

Tested and approved.

Mellow developed the first professional test rig for electric skateboards. Thanks to this rig, we are able to test the Mellow Drive with simulated conditions and scenarios to make it excel (and break) an every condition.
