This snowboard-inspired drop through is great for relaxed commutes to school or work, and mellow downhill. A camber profile and slightly concaved deck helps this complete carve with ease while still taking on steeper hills. Part of Arbor's Bamboo Collection, this deck is made up of 7 ply maple and finished with a power ply of bamboo. The addition of a strong bamboo ply to the decks construction allows for power generation and increased durability.
This complete comes equipped with Paris 50° 180mm trucks, Arbor 70mm 78a Outlook wheels, ABEC 5 Bearings, and Lucid (clear) Grip. A weapon of choice for long commutes that can also attack hills, the Arbor Axis is a complete package.
The ride was pretty smooth with the bearings that it came with but i put some Red's originals on there and it was great. First real ride with said reds was fantastic, i fell and tore my MCL in the knee. I would really recommend this board.
My daughter absolutely loves this bored she won't shut up about it her friends constantly give her compliments on this board so that in itself makes it worth every penny when you can see how big of a smile it puts on your teenager's face

I am very pleased with my purchase, however. I hadon't ordered a board from this website from the past and it was packaged and wrapped beautifully. This particular purchase however, was not wrapped at all and had a piece of packing paper on each side as a vain attempt to keep the board from moving in the box. The board was not wrapped and moved freely in the box throughout the entire journey it made to get to me. The art on the board was not damaged but the grip tape on the board is messed up in spots. I also found the bearings to be less than adequate when I spun the wheels. I am having them replaced and the grip tape looked at and probably redone at a local skate store. It looks like the board was perfect looking before it was shipped.
