is a problem that man has struggled with since the invention of the wheel:
how can I make it go faster without sacrificing control? The skateboard
was good, but any four-wheeled vehicle by nature has limited maneuverability.
Snowboards are quick and ultra responsive, but confined to snow. Can't
someone figure out a way to combine the best characteristics of both?
According to the skate-sensei at Tierney Rides, one can. Thus was born
the T-Board, the world's only street board that handles like a snowboard.
In truth, the only thing the T-Board has in common with a skateboard is
wheels. The deck more closely resembles a snowboard body, and the four-wheeled
truck system has been replaced with a pair of caster-like trucks sporting
Tierney's "Torsion Response Technology" for added stability.
Basically what you have is a two-wheeled longboard that has insane carving
But don't take our word for it. The T-Board also happens to be a favorite
training device for both the U.S. and Canadian Olympic snowboarding teams.
It's also been featured on ESPN's X-Games, the 2002 Gravity Games and
Good Morning America.
