BMW StreetCarver 2001

BMW StreetCarver

IT ROCKS...IT ROLLS...IT'S THE STREETCARVER FROM BMW

August 13, 2001...If carving the perfect turn on pavement is your passion, BMW has the ultimate skateboard for you - the BMW StreetCarver. By applying its legendary 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.

Safety features include wear indicators on the hard rubber covers of the aluminum wheels, which indicate when it is necessary to replace the running surface. Rubber grip tapes on the upper side of the deck help prevent slipping, and maintenance-free wheel bearings ensure long-term smooth running.

Prior to its U.S. debut, the BMW StreetCarver has already amassed several international design awards, including:

* Red Dot 2000 - one of the most recognized design awards in the world
* I.D. Magazine Award
* IF Award 2001
* Good Design Award 2000
* Baden-Wuerttemberg 2001.

Long board heaven on earth, the BMW StreetCarver measures 33.5 inches long, 11 inches wide and 6.3 inches in height. Recommended for ages 12 and up, the BMW StreetCarver has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $495.00 and is available through BMW retailers nationwide.

Jup, they make MTB's as well, but not that many. I "drove" a carver and have to say, I don't like skateboarden and stuf like that, but this is quite cool (if you get the hang of it) by leaning to the left or the right, its starts steering, but you can turn quite hard. Also, it doesn't make a stupid noise like the wheels of a skateboard do...

But I wouldn't buy it (friend of me got it with a X5)
