Brooklyn Workshop's Freerider Skatecycle is a recreational vehicle that combines a snowboard, skateboard and casterboard. This award-winning skatecycle features a solid aluminum frame, durable composite body parts, two slip-resistant footboards, hubless wheels and a twisting axle. With the help of the axle, rider can propel the device with ease.

The Freerider Skatecycle weighs just 7.25 lbs and is priced at $150.

Implications - For those who aren't interested in skateboarding or snowboarding, designers are creating alternative vehicles that let people enjoy the thrill of cruising down the street with ease. With so many urban cities, these type of contraptions can make the perfect method of transportation for those who want something different. It's the perfect creative edge businesses can use to attract people to a friendlier version of extreme sports.
