Rather dodge trees than people while partaking in your weekly skating regimen? You’re in luck. Piggybacking on the tangent of core and extreme roller skating comes Powerslide’s SUV all-terrain skates. These off-road skates just recently made their way into the foray and are taking off in British Columbia. Vancouver to be exact. And from the embedded video it actually looks like a hell of a good time. Skater Dustin Werbeski makes the treacherous downhill trek and natural obstacle course look like adrenaline-fueled fun in this feature, shot within the forested trails of the Vancouver’s North Shore.

The brand, Powerslide, offers several similar offshoot products that take a more aggressive stance on everyday wheel-based products. The SUV all-terrain skates, featured here, are made of an aluminum frame and 125mm air tires that keep it durable and dirt friendly. Not a bad investment if you’re looking to one-up your typical outdoor hiker. Plus, since you can take these deep into the forest, you no longer have to worry about getting busted for blading by your friends.
