Stair Rover Skateboard
For many, skateboards and longboards are the ideal mode of conveyance: they’re small, light, and portable – or at least more so than bikes. Unfortunately, their tiny wheels don’t deal well with drops and stairs, and so they’ve been mostly relegated to veteran skaters. Or at least until now. A longboard at heart, Stair Rover’s four independent V-frame brackets hold twice as many wheels as regular boards and smoothly oscillate down gaps and obstacles, notably stairs, all while keeping the board surprisingly stable. Else, the board features a maple (or black fiberglass on the pro model) deck, custom aluminum trucks, a stabilizing thermoplastic chassis, and weighs just 11 pounds.
