Stairs, the natural enemy of skateboards. You can’t roll up or down them, disaster – at least in the eyes of the guys behind the stair rover. Their solution? To add more wheels. Four more to be precise. Soon you’ll be riding the Sleipnir of the skateboarding world, conquering one set of stairs at a time.
The video makes it look fairly effective and well thought out but also kind of boring. Why ride down stairs when you can use them as a feature? Spots like Wahlenberg wouldn’t be legendary if we could also just trundle down them on these eight wheeled monstrosities. In our humble opinion if you want to invent a skateboard capable of tackling all terrain then you should at least go all the way and equip them with tank tracks. Now that we would like to see.
