Unlike other skateboards, Stair-Rover was designed from the ground up to surf the entire city, meaning that its unique eight-wheeled mechanism makes the board equally at home cruising smooth pavements or gliding down steps. Continue reading for a video and more information.

On flat ground, Stair-Rover is the equal of any traditional longboard. But when the surface gets rough – cobblestones or uneven paving, for example � the chassis goes to work. It reduces impact and keeps you moving.

It’s that same mechanism that gives the Stair-Rover its name. Reach the top of a flight of stairs and simply keep going – let gravity and the patent-pending V-frame design do the rest. The wheels bounce up and down independently and conform to the shape of each step. It’s a balancing act that gives the board its crab-like scuttle and gives you a butter-smooth ride to the bottom.
