IXO unveils high-end skateboards and longboards


Carbon fiber is a material widely used in manufacturing of products. Till date, we have seen it used in phones, sleds, bikes, golf cars and even rings! Counted among one of the most expensive materials used, and one of the strongest, the latest product that has shaped up in carbon fiber is a set of high-end skateboards. Until now, we’ve seen skateboards dressed in gold, leather and even shape up in porcelain. Thanks to IXO, we can now add to this list entirely carbon-fiber-made skateboards. Through its recent launch, IXO makes available two versions, one a mid-sized Skateboard and the other a longer version fully made in carbon fiber prepeg and nomex, beautifully integrating luxury and technology for daily use.
