Zenyth Hubless Longboard / Skateboard

Zenyth Hubless Longboard
Zenyth Hubless Longboard

Zenith challenges the traditional form of a skateboard. It literally flips things upside down and inside out with a rising deck and center less wheels.
The aim of the design was to remove all interruptions to the flow of the form and develop a new aesthetic for an object that has not changed much since its conception.
The hand made Canadian maple deck is finished with an American walnut veneer and a hand cut Tasmanian Oak parquetry graphic.
The combination of large diameter wheels and the leaf spring like deck give the ability to roll over rough terrain with ease.
