Frammento, from road to road - cruiser skateboard
Frammento
from road to road






Fragment is a collection of skateboards made of the rubber obtained from End-of-Life Tires (ELT). Through the shredding processes, the rubber of the tyre is transformed into granules that are cheap and that can maintain all the rubber technical properties such as grip, durability and elasticity. The End-of-Life Tires revive in the form of a skateboard so that the tires can have the opportunity to keep travelling. My proposition is for everybody: a means of transport without pretentions, practical, fun and safe. A skateboard to run around town.
