Our completes include Randal 150mm trucks & either 70mm 87A black Fireball Incendos or 70mm 80A black Shark Wheel Makos. If you wish to save $ & build out your own we like Randal, Fireball and Shark Wheels.
During the production of the Aileron we found there was a significant amount of trim scrap that was too small to be incorporated into that large cruiser deck. We needed to develop a second board that could incorporate even smaller pieces and that board is the Rover.
JPL’s plucky little Pathfinder rover was the inspiration for our new skateboard. They share a basic design criterion: being elegantly simple yet functional and as light as possible. Pathfinder’s diminutive size and mass were requirements for its solar powered cruise across the Martian surface. Our little rover will cruise you across campus or town and without encumbering your journey or weighing you down when you arrive.
At just 560 grams complete the Rover is the lightest skateboard we’ve found. It trounces those heavy plastic cruisers and the supposedly light wood deck (at @1100g, an Uber Light or Fiberlight weighs in nearly twice as much as ours), providing you with a lot more performance, not to mention style. The weight savings we gain from pure carbon fiber allows us to widen the deck and trucks, providing longboard stability and control in a tight, light package. Carbon fiber’s stiffness allows us to keep the board razor thin (less than 1/4 inch). And did we mention style? Equipped with Shark Wheels and Randal Trucks the Rover’s looks are INSANE and its ride is INCREDIBLE.
The Rover is cut to reflect the high-tech origin of its construction. Our carbon fiber is an extremely light weight and strong fiber reinforced polymer actually used in the production of rockets and the world’s highest performing aircraft. An old-school, surfboard shaped cruiser just wouldn’t honor that heritage. We looked to the sharp stealth cutouts of the classic F-117 Nighthawk and the sleek look of a hypersonic airfoil. From the swept back holes to the aggressive cut outs, each feature is engineered for both performance and style.
We’ve experienced the frustration of having our board stolen and so we’ve added cutouts on the Rover which serve as security hard points. They let you secure your Rover inside your locker or outside with a bike chain lock or a pad lock. Simply drilling a circular hole in the carbon wouldn’t match the Rover’s style, so we came up with a vented look that references the appearance of a high-performance aircraft.
We like to travel with our boards and found the Rover’s unique cutouts allow it to be strapped to a backpack, which is both convenient and very cool. We’ve tested our boards all over the world and gotten amazing responses from tech loving skaters from London to Hawaii. Even TSA agents smile when the Rover cruises through their scanner!
