designers at sunset skateboards have created a line of transparent, light-up cruisers whose wheels illuminate with motion. the skateboards have transparent polycarbonate decks that come in a variety of vibrant colors and styles, including the ‘ghost’, a clear deck with white and red wheels, ‘the alien’, an all green machine, and the ‘princess’ which is pastel pink and blue.


the wheels are fitted with LED lights that are completely powered by the rolling motion — they will last for up to 100,000 hours of skateboarding and will never need batteries. the sturdy, high quality decks are made from water-clear polycarbonate, the same material used in bullet proof glass, with special UV inhibitors to help make it weather-proof. you can choose from one of sunset skateboard’s already made designs, or build your own custom wheeler — selecting your deck and truck colors as well as the palette for the four wheels individually.
