Rockboard Descender Skateboard Moves with Tank Treads

Are you ready to ride your skateboard like it is a tank? Check out Rockboard’s Descender board. This baby is outfitted with treads that are wrapped around heavy-duty rollers. That means that it will go over terrain that normal skateboards could never handle.

The deck of the Rockboard Descender looks normal, but there are no trucks or wheels here. Instead you get a set of four tracks like a mini tank. So now you can ride smoothly down a grassy hill, instead of falling off your board and getting face-planted.

Since the Descender isn’t motorized like this treaded skateboard, the downside is that it doesn’t seem very fast, and it really only makes sense going downhill. But if you like the idea of a skate-tank, the Rockboard Descender should be available this summer for about $120(USD). That’s not a bad price. You could be the first on your block to get one.
