Skateboarding into urban warfare

Another entrant to the motorized-skateboard jungle.

Rok It Science

Speak of the devil-board. Just as we were speaking of the hot competition in electric motorized skateboards , along comes another one from a U.K. company called Rok It Science.

The "Boom Borda" has specs comparable to such competitors as the " Metroboard " and the " E-Glide Powerboard ," with a 400-watt motor and the ability to go 15 miles per charge, though it comes in slightly less than the others at $463.

But the real advantage, if it has one, is its graffiti-inspired design as seen on Gizmag. After all, when everything else is stripped away, they are still skateboards.
