The XTRS skates are the first of their kind, the only skateboard that actually measures your steps, time and speed. Unlike other skaters who step on the air or skate without shoes, the XTRS board is designed to perform independently of your body (you can even wear them in public if you push through it). It’s environmental friendly, too, as it uses water-repellent synthetic fiber to keep it dry and clean.
skateboarding is as old as humanity itself. We all have been doing it, it was just a matter of time that this technology would one day make its way into the mainstream. The skateboarding industry has gone from a niche at first to a $50 billion industry over the past few years. But there’s a problem with this horizon: What we’re seeing is what we’ve seen before. The same companies who made skateboards and helmets are now making these same technologies, just with different names and even one cheaper.
Skate technology is a synchronicity that is made up of three parts: Skateboard, Skateboarder, and Skate! This clever modular skateboardrobot was developed by John McGraw and Chad Bashkitt in order to add an incredible amount of speed and functionality to the already existing skateboard industry. The fact that you don’t need a helmet to ride a skateboard is just one of the many things that makes this product so great.
