Po-Chih Lai’s Staircase-Friendly Skateboard

26 Jun

This could be a game changer for urban longboarding! Designed by Po-Chi Lai, a Royal College of Art grad, the Stair Rover is a skateboard with eight wheels and a Y-shape aluminium frame. The cantilevered trucks allow the long deck to traverse stairs and other obstacles in the modern urban landscape. Check out the slick video below shot by Juriaan Booij  showcasing the Rover at London’s Barbican. Me likey!
