Scarpar is Part Tank and Part Skateboard

by Shane McGlaun

Last year we talked a bit about the Scarpar off-road skateboard thingy. It looks like a skateboard, but it is made to run off-road and has no normal wheels to roll on. Some off-road boards just have large wheels on each corner. Wheel’s are for pussies though.


Scarpar has tank treads on the bottom, and it will scoot you along. The thing is motivated by an electric motor and a battery pack, and the top of the line unit can hit speeds up to 28mph (45 km/h). I’m not sure how you control the Scarpar, but I am pretty sure I would break my arm.

The last time we talked about this contraption it was mostly a concept. This time around you can actually order the Scarpar if you really want one. The Scarpar will retail from $2800 to $3800 (USD), but can be reserved for $500 to $600. The maker says it wants to gauge the interest in the board and notes that the cost varies with the capacity and strength of the battery pack. The company expects to ship the first of the Scarpar boards in December 2011.
