One thing that has always been tricky to do on a skateboard which is a fundamental part of snowboarding or surfing, is carving. Now Aris Sport is hoping to change this with their new radically different conical wheels designed for skateboards.
The new conical wheels unveiled by Aris Sport, have been fitted to their Blade Runner skateboards, which they are hope will bring a little carving to our streets. Watch the promotional video after the jump to see the new wheels in action.
The conical design of the wheels is to help the skateboard tip more deeply into turns. Aris has created three styles equipped with their new wheels, with decks modelled after a snowboard, and long and short surfboards. Aris explains:
“We have reinvented the wheel…Carving will never be the same. We have engineered an entirely new way of motion related to skateboarding, bringing change to the action sports industry. Join our mailing list for first availability updates. Revolution Is Imminent…”
The new Aris skateboards equipped with conical wheels are expected to start shipping in March 2012 and will be priced under $200.
