About this project

It's like Training Wheels for a Skateboard and much more. Teach your child, a friend or yourself to ride a skateboard in one day.

  • Easy to learn
  • Easy to teach
  • Instant Control
  • Safer
  • Great exercise
  • Similar to snowboarding

Simply grab the handles, stand on the deck, jump, spin, twist and grind away. Now you can start, stop, turn and hop with ease. Practice your snowboarding skills on your skateboard.

KRAINKN JR. KIT AND DECK- Smaller board for 12 and under. (7.25" x 29")

Manufacturing, design and assembly will all be done in the U.S. Skateboarding industry infrastructure is already in place and ready to supply me with decks, wheels, trucks and bearings....as many as we need and quickly too.

KRAINKN PRO KIT AND DECK - Full size board for teen to adult. (8.5" x 32")

We've done tons of live testing. It took a while but we finally got it right.

KRAINKN JR.COMPLETE PACKAGE

KRAINKN PRO COMPLETE PACKAGE

Bring an old Deck........Back To Life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No Wheels No Problem. Try Krainkn on:

  • Trampoline
  • Easy set of stairs
  • Grassy Hill
  • Off road on obstacles ( like free-running or parkour )

How will funding be used?

I've dedicated more than 2 years to the development of KRAINKN, and with your help I can make the final push to turn it into a reality!  Funds will go directly towards tooling costs, injection mold casting, and components. I'll also be setting up manufacturing and quality control process in Minnesota. Additional funds will all go toward essential expenses and development of breakthrough new features and accessories. 

When will KRAINKN ship?

We anticipate shipping the first KRAINKN products ordered through Kickstarter as early as October 2012.
