With successful collaborations with Tiffany & Co., Nike, Kith, and Virgil Abloh, among others, NYC-based artist materials brand and design studio Krink is no stranger when it comes to pushing the standards of collaborative design. For this project, Krink teams up with Banzai Skateboards to create a collectible skateboard set that celebrates design, skateboarding, and graffiti.
Banzai Skateboards, founded in 1976 in California, specializes in producing skate decks made entirely from anodized aluminum. With the board’s sleek finishes and '70s shape, Krink and Banzai found an opportunity to do something new and refreshing. Together, they created a mirror-finish board with etched logos and Krink NYC scratch tag. Paired with the board is a custom Krink x Banzai Scriber, which allows the user to customize their board. Scribing is a form of graffiti where you mark surfaces with a sharp or stone tool, commonly seen on public trains, windows, and bathroom mirrors.
Limited to just 100 skateboards worldwide.
The Krink x Banzai Skateboard includes a full assembly set, polishing cloth, Krink NYC grip tape, scriber tool, and is all housed in a silver collectors’ box—Krink’s flagship color.
Size: Large 28.5" (72 CM).
Equipped with thicker, shock-absorbing riser pads and a wheelbase near modern skateboards, hovering through the city becomes a new sensation. We were able to carry out the transformation to a modern form of transport. The specially heat-treated aluminum alloy allows stability and power transmission at any speed.
