Foldable Skateboard, Is It A Good Idea ?

The need of space-use efficiency has directed the designers to many innovative concept products ranging from bicycles to full fledged cars. But folding skate board is quite an exceptional idea for user convenience, portability and space minimizing. The board is actually a combination of two parts connected with a clump at the middle. The combination of black upper surface with a led direction indicator and the white under surface has given the skate board a fabulous look. The movable rear wheel base will allow you to place the wheels in an organized way when you will fold the board. Foldable skateboard might look cool, but the real skateboarders don’t seem to agree with this idea.

DOSENST SAVE MUCH SPACE AND I WOULDENNT EVEN TRUST DOING A KICKFLIP ON IT MAYBE TO SHOW OFF AND GO PLACE TO PLACE

this is a horrible idea. doing board slides or dark slides would be a bad idea on this. skateboards take up no room.

I’d be willing to check it out. I make/ride pretty small board for getting around NYC. Small because I like it put away and hands free when I’m hustling. I would say even skinny up the trucks .. for more small.

What’s up with those wheels?

If you had done any research as to the functional requirements of a skateboard you would appreciate that this concept is rubbish. I would rather carry a complete board comfortably than try to carry that thing around. Where do you hold it? This is thin.

It's folding mechanism barely saves any space. If you want a folding bold search STOWBOARD. It's already been invented.

Let's face it, folding a trick board serves no purpose. Only a commuting board would benefit from foldability. The stowboard knows what it's doing. This idea is clearly made by someone who never skated for tricks or for commuting.

It's folding mechanism barely saves any space. What the hell it's like half semi folded. If you want a folding board search STOWBOARD.

At least the Stowboard offers a smoother commuting ride and actually folds in a useful manner. This crap is neither good for tricks or for commuting. It's obvious the designer never skated either as a trick rider or a longboarder.
