This is the Rockboard Decender, a $ 120 skateboard deck with tank treads instead of wheels that can only be ridden down hills (unlike THIS badass mother). Don’t have any hills around your house? GET THE F*** OUT OF THE MIDWEST. Trust me, you’ll thank me for it later. Oooooooor come to my house and try to kill me. Expect a fight. Also, expect to win (I’m only good at shrieking and pulling hair).
Hit the jump for a video of the board in action. Me? I like to ride down hills the old-fashioned way: inside an old tractor trailer.
This video footage is for sale for professional use, please contact me! Everybody who wants to get the music please look here: Amazon: www.amazon.de iTunes: itunes.apple.com If you want to see me skating in real: please come to the “Beton on Fire” (www.betononfire.de) on August 27-29 in Altenberg, Germany!
In a move that is sure to excite the outdoorsman (or outdoors-lady, as it were) in us all, German outfit Ego-Kits has unveiled the E-Powered Downhill Bike Kit so you don’t have to go through all that pesky exercise getting to the top of the mountain to enjoy the thrill of bombing back down. The kit comes with a 1200-watt aluminum motor that mounts under the down tube of 70 percent of downhill bike models, a battery pack (contained within an included backpack), charger, controller module, crankset, chain, and twist grip throttle with a battery charge indicator. We don’t know the price or when the system will officially go on sale, but we do know that when mounted on a mountain bike, it looks cooler than other, more pedestrian electric bikes we’ve seen previously. Jump after the break to see the Ego-Kit in action.

The footprint of the equipment looks a little large for the average gym to start offering but for a training facility it would probably work well. As you can see in the video below, and from anyones experience on the slopes, this would probably offer a great workout and a way to stay in shape in the off season.
