Freebord's new skateboard

Evolved from the edging techniques used in snowboarding, the Freebord is a new kind of skateboard which uses the concept of "edging" on the road.

Two inner, centered wheels are positioned to sit just below the outer, longer wheels which act like a snowboard's edges. When riding a Freebord, you can carve, slide, and slow down just like on the snow, bringing more control to the skateboard experience.
