What is the difference between the Stair-Rover seen in action last year and the latest design?
The new design makes the board lighter, stronger, and more agile. We have worked hard for last 24 months to improve the performance of the Stair-Rover in all kinds of conditions. We selected a better material for the chassis to increase maneuverability and durability of the Stair-Rover. The angle of pivot axle has been changed to 50 degree for better turnability. The deck height and other component details have also been redesigned to simplify the product and improve performance when surfing over various urban terrain.
Can I push the Stair-Rover like a traditional longboard?
Yes, it acts just like a traditional longboard on flat surfaces and slopes. You will also discover that the Stair-Rover performs much better than traditional longboards on rougher surfaces.
Can I do tricks with the Stair-Rover?
Yes. Our test riders have tried many existing skateboard / longboard tricks using the Stair-Rover. But all skateboards / longboards are designed for different interests and circumstances. You may find Stair-Rover unable to perform some tricks as good as other longboards. You also may find Stair-Rover capable to do some actions no others can do. We can’t wait to see you invent new tricks using the Stair-Rover, and name it with your own style.
Do I need to have hardcore experience to ride a Stair-Rover?
Anyone can ride Stair-Rover. But we do think you need basic skateboard/longboard experience and skills to ride down stairs. While riding the Stair-Rover, we advise riders to:
- Wear fully protected safety gear (helmets and pads)
- Take particular care to avoid pedestrians and other vehicles
- Trial the Stair-Rover on shorter, gentler stairs before trying a longer stairs
Can I replace components of my Stair-Rover at a later date?
You can replace: bearings, wheels, bushings, grip tape, and even the deck. However, changing components may affect the quality of performance of the Stair-Rover.
