The proposed deck designs for the Descender all-terrain skateboard
Rockboard is about to release an off-road skateboard called the Descender, that features tank-like tracks instead of wheels
Beneath the deck are four heavy duty triple-wheel sets (with 36 wheels in total), around each of which runs a rubber tread for good traction
The tracks tilt forward and backward for stable sidewalk-to-street transfer or a unique-looking wheelie
Pushing wood down grassy gradients can be quite a challenge for standard wheeled boards. There are of course oversized or chunky options available to help smooth over some of the bumps and dips, but hybrid scooter maker Rockboard will shortly be releasing a new all-terrain skateboard called the Descender, that features tank-like treads instead of wheels. While it's clear that you're not going to get the butt-clenching thrill or the hairline-raising speeds offered by adult off-roaders like Scarper's powerboard or the DTV Shredder, with some considered course planning you could still be in for quite a ride.
