ESK8 Creators Review the New ShredLights

We reached out to some of the top electric skateboard reviewers to get their thoughts on the new SL-300+ smart headlights and SL-R1+ brake lights. See what they had to say in their review videos.

What are the benefits of smart headlights and brake lights for electric skateboards?

Electric skateboards have become increasingly popular among commuters and enthusiasts alike, but riding at night has been challenging since most electric skateboards do not include headlights or brake lights. ShredLights have been the most popular option among ESK8 riders since 2015, making it possible to see the road ahead and be seen by cars from over 2,000 feet away. In August 2023, we released the SL-300+ smart headlights and SL-R1+ smart brake lights to take night rides to a whole new level. The benefits of having these smart lights are numerous:

  • Enhanced visibility: Skateboard headlights ensure that riders can see the road ahead up to 25 feet ahead while riding at night. This improves safety and reduces the risk of accidents.
  • Increased safety: Brake lights alert other road users when the rider is slowing down or coming to a stop. This helps prevent collisions and ensures that riders can confidently navigate through traffic.
  • Convenience: The ability to control up to 12 lights from a smartphone adds a new level of convenience. Riders can easily turn the lights on or off, adjust brightness, and customize lighting patterns according to their preferences.

What do ESK8 reviewers think about the new ShredLights?

We reached out to some of the top electric skateboard reviewers to get their thoughts on the new smart headlights and brake lights for electric skateboards. Here's what they had to say:

Daniel Kwan

"Nowadays, there are several skateboard lights you can consider. But when it comes to these smart lights, I don't know of any other lights that even come close in features and convenience. Being able to turn on a group of lights using just one light is super convenient and saves time. For that reason alone, I think these lights are worth the premium if you're looking for lights for your board that are easy to install and remove, convenient to use, and full of features."


"These new lights from an unrivaled light company in personal electric vehicles are excellent in operation and manufacturing accuracy. The light intensity, which is the most basic feature, is excellent. In particular, the automatic on/off and active brake modes introduced are really impressive."

Drew Elia

"The best feature about them is bluetooth control so you no longer have to turn on each individual light by itself. You now have the ability to turn them all one with one light, the app, or the auto on/off feature."


The introduction of smart headlights and brake lights for electric skateboards has revolutionized the night riding experience. Not only do these lights enhance safety by improving visibility and signaling intentions, but they also add a touch of customization and convenience with the ShredLights app. Top electric skateboard reviewers agree that these smart lights are a valuable addition to any electric skateboard. So, if you're looking to upgrade your electric skateboard, consider investing in the new smart headlights and brake lights from ShredLights.
