Know The Skateboard Which Does Not Have A ‘Board?’
Inventors insatiable hunger to bring more variety in our living and playing experiences brings forth another advancement — this time in the skateboard, which doesn’t need to be introduced as an equipment for riding or performing tricks.
This advanced version of skateboard, which is also being termed as the Post Modern Skateboard, does not have the board. Absence of the board gives the product a unique shape that doesn’t resemble much with a typical skateboard.
Instead of a board, Skates consist of two 10-inch wheels with platforms where the skater places their feet in order to display feats. Additionally, a rod has been packed up with skates for beginners. So if you have never tried skateboarding before, connect this rod to pair of wheels and learn how you can stabilize yourself on gibbous paths.
When skateboarding, you will have to make crisscross movements. These movements will rotate the wheels which will push the stakes in forward direction. You can make 720-degree spins and magical turns with these skates. When you want to stop yourself, you will have to place your toes on the ground.
Hammacher Schlemmer has posted a video on its product page. In this video, we can see three skaters using the skates for radical movements not only on the concrete sidewalks but on the grassy areas too.
But performing such tricks without any experience is easier said than done. If you really want to master the art of performing extraordinary spins and making tight turns, you will have to spend some time practicing at some smooth place before you finally advance to the serious skating.
On the page, Hammacher Schelmer has notified that the product has certain age and weight limits: people with weight more than 200 pounds should not attempt to ride skates because that will exceed its endurance limit. Similarly, children below the 8 years are also advised not to risk their bodies.
The board-less skateboard has officially been named as Sidewinding Circular Skates and is being offered at Hammacher Schelmer store. Once the product reaches the market, it will be priced at $100. And $100 for a thrilling skating experience is worth spending. Is it for you?
