Rockboard Descender Can Take Your Board Off Road

By David Ponce

Traditional skateboards work great on paved surfaces, but take them on grass and it won’t be long before you go flying off. There are several solutions on the market for off-road boarding, some using bigger wheels, suspension, etc. The Rockboard Descender takes a different approach by decking out the underside of the board with “tough-as-nails” treads that let you take it pretty much anywhere. The video below should give you an idea of what to expect. We don’t have much details on its performance, and whether you’ll be giving up some smooth-surface agility in order to gain all-terrain abilities, but for those of you on the lookout for a different kind of thrill, the Descender is expected to go on sale for around $120 in Q2.
