Benjamin Newman has designed a new style of skateboard called the Rat which is fitted with disc brakes and aply named the Rat Brakeboard, check out the video below to learn more about this unique skateboard which is fitted with disc breaks and has taken to Kickstarter crowdfunding website this month to raise AUD $50,000.
The Rat is the first in the Kickstarter range and provides a 30” x 9” Brakeboard which is now available to back, or if you are looking for something slightly longer the Brakeboard Longboard measures 39” x 10.5”.
Brakeboard has gained a reputation for producing the best skateboard brakes in the world. We take pride in the quality and performance of our products. Just like our 190mm Longboard trucks, the 150mm Rat trucks are designed to withstand high-speeds and steep downhill cruising.
The Rat’s new brakes use less aluminium and lighter stainless steel rotors, resulting in a better balance for the smaller board. The Rat brake pedal is half the size of its bigger brother, but maintains leverage and power.
Like all our boards the brake pedal is easily removable for park riding. The 150mm Truck Set will also retro-fit most skateboard decks and wheels of your choice.
