If carving the perfect turn on pavement is your passion, BMW has the ultimate skateboard for you -- the BMW StreetCarver, featuring the same fiberglass insert sandwich construction used for snowboards.
By applying its expertise in automotive design and technology to a new genre of mobility, BMW has developed an award-winning product that allows riders to experience the thrill of surfing or snowboarding wherever there's pavement. An innovative aluminum steering mechanism derived from the original BMW 5 Series chassis allows spectacular steering maneuvers, while ensuring excellent stability and roadholding. Its progressive steering action allows riders to shift weight and change direction while maintaining full control as they ""carve"" turns. For optimal damping, the deck features the same wood and fiberglass insert sandwich construction used for snowboards.
