We have seen complex structures skateboarding as a honeycomb configuration Hydroflex before, but Gridboard takes a more sophisticated note. The company brings a new level of boards. The similarity with the traditional structure of the board was reduced to a minimum, in particular – from plastic components. Instead, they had a choice made in favor of carbon fiber, which is lighter and more durable, as well as technology was used honeycomb structure with hollow cores. Users can also use a kind of paddle, which will need to balance the newcomers at first. But apart from that it can provide and seasoned borders many benefits. For example, if the anticipated riding straight and level range, it may cause an acceleration paddle.
Typically, a manufacturer of carbon fiber board would really be effective by itself to reduce the mass of the entire product as a whole, but the people at Munich’s Innovation Office HYVE went one step further. The company has designed a skeleton board, finding inspiration after seeing and learning elements of different organisms – or rather, insect wings and plant leaves. However, the other components remained unchanged.
Unfortunately, the first board HYVE an actual length of 39 inches (100 cm) and had no particular success. Apparently, because the proposal to light their novelty, for some reason, journalists were refused, citing the fact that the current version of the prototype is not brought to mind, it weighs more than the expected weight of the model for mass production, and then the product was just released on the market. Who knew he knew. New creation HYVE now called Gridboard and will be released closer to the market in July.
