Skateboarding is known for a lot of great tricks, but carving isn’t one of them. Skateboarders who wish they could carve up sidewalks and streets like snowboarders carve up powder just might have reason to rejoice, though – the Bladerunner is almost here. That is, as long as its Kickstarter page meets its funding requirements.
The Bladerunner is a skateboard that uses conical wheels, rather than regular circular wheels that make carving much more difficult. You can check out a promotional video on ARIS Sport’s Kickstarter page for the Bladerunner, which shows some footage of a prototype in action, from an under-the-board camera angle.
ARIS Sports claims that the Bladerunner should be ready for sale this summer. They might not have reinvented the wheel, but if all goes well, it looks like they may have at least started a skateboarding revolution.
