N2R LONGBOARD: Technology Revolution from Yachts to Skates

£10,294

 HI KICKSTARTER, our story is simple. We had a dream: 
to apply "state of art" yacht & car racing technology to performance longboards & skates. Our goal was to make a revolutionary "life time" board with totally innovative technologies + style + features that give real advantages for boarders... and trust us, we did it !
Now it's your turn to make it real and be part of this board revolution!

We offer (only to passionate longboarders) 5 REASONS why our N2R Boards are top performers:

1 – They're built to be Indestructible with a long term resistance, 40% stronger than the fiberglass ones and 70% stronger than the plywood ones. All details are designed aiming to perfection offering outstanding durability and impressive core shock resistance. Therefore: The Board comes with a 3 YEARS WARRANTY over structural damages, out-performing the whole market where the average warranty is in between 6 and 12 months. Boards are projected and tested to be used on worst conditions, including raining and wet days, without any structural damages.

2 – It's easy to carry with you because the urban version is average 25% Lighter than other standard Boards. Feel it! Take it in your hands. Our urban board weight is 1,6 kg (3,53 Lb) whilst to the 2+kg that other standard 37' boards. So it's much easier to carry around. 

3 - We made it with the same 100% registered Infuture tricomposite biaxial Technology that we use for the top yachts & racing cars, so you may use our Decks in any situations, including rain, and load it as much as you want. This technology is developed in collaboration with DIAB, the greatest core production company, after a 15 year cooperation and using recyclable core material.

4 - Sold Direct. Premium Boards cost anywhere in US and Europe between $250 - $520+ in the stores. Cheaper boards just don't compare for features and in performance. Only for Kickstarter Backers, for a short time, we offer our "amazing board" with a great 40% launch discount compared to the next retail prices! 

URBAN FLEX '37 (€179 - $244)

Easily to carry with you due to it being 25% lighter. Use it every day with rain and sun, because it's made to be used in rain conditions. The more you use it the more you'll like it because you won't suffer micro fractures and performance will remain constant in time. Enjoy it in the city and skatepark.

L: 37,98 - W:10,1 Semiconcave - KG 1,6 - LB 3,53 - Variable Profile - Semi Flex Core - 3 Years warranty on structural breaking.

ROCK DOWNHILL '37 (€189 - $259)

YOUR REWARD LIST

CALLING ALL LONG BOARDERS... THESE ARE THE TECHNICAL FEATURES THAT GIVE YOU THE BEST BENEFITS:

.... AND FOR ENGINEERS: TECHNOLOGIES THAT MAKE the N2R 37' AN INCREDIBLE BOARD...

We have been working for the past 15 years practicing and developing it on top yachts and car racing parts. "Infuture" proprietary Process joint to Diab Core, make our boards top products incomparable with others. Here are its principal Strengths:

Can be Used in High Temperatures - Resistant against Fatigue - Closed Cells - High Compression Strengths - High Shear Strengths - Low water absorption - Dimensionally Stable - Chemical Resistant - Recyclable - Light


The technology we use is "state of the art" and our premium products out-performs other material characteristics by far (such as balsa, wood, fiberglass, polyurethane foam). Other applications of our core: - Aeronautical & Aerospace - Wind Turbines - Racing Cars - Premium Yachts and Racing Yachts - Trains.

Diab Core gives us 3 substantial improvements when compared to all monolithic materials used up to now on Boards: Best Flexural Rigidity existing on the market, Less Weight, Top Sturdiness.

We use this energy efficiency to build the best boards ever.

TESTS

We performed several tests on the decks both in the Labs and on the field here some of most interesting:

LABS: More significant are the Mechanical Stress Tests we did at Natta Tech Institute filmed here http://youtu.be/VY3aqLhQg6I. Take a look on how our technology resists impacts and his incredibly Flexural Rigidity.

STREET: Jins going to his studio in the city http://youtu.be/rxa1l2iBF4Q using our urban version and Filippo "PanchoVilla" Salerni Downhill testing the Rock version around Malaga, Spain

And here Ivo Knievel testing the '37 urban version in the Frankfurt Skate Part with his Soneart crew:

3 YRS BREAKING WARRANTY

We are so confident that all our boards are guaranteed for 36 months against core structural breaks on normal use conditions as per our warranty conditions. This include the use in extreme conditions (rain, wet, etc) for both version urban and downhill.

JINS LIMITED EDITION

We have a Limited Edition signed by Paolo Gillone "Jins" one of the most well known Italian Pop artist, a friend and one of our urban tester. He drawn for us a limited collection of FISH to create a real fish-longboard you can choose a signed and numbered  "Limited" Deck Reward at £163 and that will be in his next expositions for 399. If you like as we do, you may choose urban or downhill with one of these unique Jins drawings:

STRETCH GOALS ?

Our Board is so performing that we don't need to promise more features unless new colors: so at 18K£ we'll introduce the 4th color and at 28K£ the 5th colour. But a big surprise can happen at 40K£....

NOW SUSTAIN US !

Multiply our voice and share this project with everyone. Make our dreams a reality to build a new paradigma and give us suggestions for future decks. Use our board as a real tester, we'll create a brand around you and not the opposite !  THANKS - GRAZIE


Risks and challenges

N2R Skateboards are proudly made in Turin, Italy where the best Italian Yachts and Premium Car are made. We’re committed to local manufacturing and have optimized the supply chain to reduce our shipping miles and carbon footprint. Here's our schedule to get N2R Skateboards to you!

November - December '13: Make final product refinements and Proto Tests.
February/March: Kickstarter Campaign runs. Make lots of new friends.
April: Place component orders and setup for bulk production
End of April: Start production.
From end of May: Ship out first Boards
June: Ship out complete and all limited edition designs.
July: Finishing sending out boards
August: Holidays (with our '37 :-)

Dear Backers we want also you know that as N2R our final dream and challange it's to create an environnement and an ecosystem where different products share the same same 3 values: top design and style, produced with an innovative technology and best sustainable as possible. Previous project we did and successful funded was an "Hydro Jacket" you can see here http://kck.st/1fcYfpp that it's on the way, exactly in this moment we are launching the fabrics production. To not influence our first project, 2 new people (Beppe and Simone) are just dedicated to our Longboard dream. So our environnement at the moment it's the following: www.n2rskate.it for Longboards and www.n2r.it for Hydro jacket.
Hope you like this idea as we do !
