Skateboard with F1 tech is probably too beautiful to use

Some sports just aren't supposed to look high-tech, like skateboarding. Sure skaters will spend plenty for the latest trucks and wheels, but the actual deck itself is usually pretty basic and covered with flashy graphics.

The Roadmaster deck from WeFunk of Germany takes the opposite approach, using Formula 1 inspired composite construction with a stunning finish to create a real art object. Taking this beauty out to grind some rails would be kind of like using a Bugatti Veyron at the local demolition derby.

Of course if you can swing the $860 asking price (trucks and wheels extra), you probably don't care too much about giving it a little road rash.
