The Scarpar is the all-terrain answer to skateboarders who feel bound by concrete.
After nearly two decades of development, and more than $5 million invested, the Scarpar is about to hit the road. In early July, Andrew Fern, the man behind the Scarpar project, released the above video and announced the all-terrain skateboard prototype will soon undergo field trials. Hundreds of fans applied to be test riders on the battery-powered, double-tracked skateboard, which is engineered to roar across all types of terrain and hit speeds in excess of 30 mph.
It’s been a long time coming for Fern, who first took on the all-terrain skateboard project from its original inventor, Daniel Baldwin, in 2006. The Scarpar, however, is finally on its way to being completed. It’s closer than ever to being available to riders willing to spend $5,000 to $6,000 when it hits this holiday season.
