The one I am going to talk about in this review article is Merkapa 22’’ complete skateboard. This one is one of the best skateboards available for kids and teenagers in the market right now. This unique looking mini skateboard is getting all the attention that it rightfully deserves.

The deck is built with Polypropylene (PP) plastic which is the safest of all plastics available. It is robust in nature and also heat resistant.

The wheels are the main attraction of this board. The wheels has pre-set LED in them and they light up when you start rotating them.

The LED lights will also help you ride at night and think about the glow it will make when all the LED will light at the same time. It will be magnificent to watch.

The dimensions of the wheels are 60 x 45mm. Small wheels for a small board, that’s understandable. The hardness rating of the wheels is 78A, so they are on the soft side.
