Overview
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.

Ride Style

Commuting - Commuter boards cover a wide range. Whether you're cruising to the store on a beverage run or crossing from suburbs to downtown and back on the daily, commuting boards are made to make your life a litter easier and a lot more fun.

Shorter boards in this category make up the cruising department. Some have functional kicktails, but they're still made to fit large wheels so you won't get hung up on any rocks. Some are even small enough they can fit in lockers or under a work desk.

Longer boards are made for distance skaters. With features like rocker, flex, and anything to lower your center of gravity, commuting boards make skating feel like you have your own cloud underfoot. These boards are really great for beginners and experienced riders alike.

Never make the boring mistake of walking again, get your commute on.

Carve & Pintail - Deep carves, boardwalk cruising, and mellow hills are calling you. This is the traditional Californian longboard and is still relevant today. You'll find the longest wheelbases in this category meant for big turns and a large surface area for dancing.

Mounting Style

Drop Through - Drop Through boards lower your center of gravity, giving you a more responsive and stable ride. Trucks are mounted through the board and truck bases will sit either flush or slightly above the deck surface. Great for high speed assaults or even cruising around town to your local watering hole.

Note: If assembling yourself, you'll first need to remove your longboard truck hanger from its base by unscrewing the kingpin. Once separated, reassemble the trucks through the mounting area (sandwiching the board between the hanger/base of the truck), then tighten the kingpin nuts and you're ready to roll.

Deck Profile

Camber - Camber gives you a charged feeling underfoot and better leverage for turns. Camber boards can feel a bit more like a spring at first, but any rider will appreciate how this makes the board responsive. Camber boards are especially fun for commuter decks, freestyle, and cruisers where you'll be carving a lot.

Deck Shape

Symmetrical - Symmetrical boards are ideal for freeride and freestyle. The freeride pros will tell you that figuring out how to come out of a slide switch is not an easy task and having a symmetrical deck underfoot will help you speed through the learning curve to the top of the class. Freestyle skaters love their double kicks and reliable symmetrical boards to land flip tricks. So if these pursuits sound like your style, check out symmetrical boards.

Deck Features

Cutouts - With big wheels you need lots of room to carve and dig into turns, cutouts around the wheels provide the extra space required to prevent wheelbite while cutouts for your trucks appear on drop through decks so you can ride closer to the ground.

Mild Concave - With the right concave underfoot you'll feel you can skate anything. Concavity can be seen if you look at a board straight down the nose to the tail. Mild concave shows as a slight rise towards the edges of the deck giving your feet plenty of places to lock in. Choosing the right concave can be tough because it's all personal preference, but you can't go wrong if you don't already have a preference.

Arbor Deck Construction

7-Ply Maple + Bamboo Construction - Made with seven plies of sustainably sourced hardrock maple and a power ply of environmentally friendly bamboo. Bamboo is a sustainably grown, power-generating ply that delivers improved return and lasting durability.

Deck Features

Wood By-Product Use - All wood by-products created during the production of Arbor skateboards are reclaimed for use in other Arbor products, or by outside companies. This allows Arbor to stretch an important resource, while helping to reduce the strain on landfills and forest land.

Water Based Finishes - All Arbor skateboards are produced using a water-based sanding sealer and final finish to avoid air pollution.

Trucks

Paris 150mm Trucks - The Paris 150mm trucks are your go-to carving truck with 90a Divine bushings. If you're looking to cut some serious turns and get your carve on, then these babies are for you. Like all Paris Trucks, the baseplate angle is 50°, which provides the perfect balance between stability and maneuverability. The 150mm hanger allows for quicker turning and greater leverage when compared to a wider hanger.

Wheels & Bearings

All Arbor Wheels are made from an environmentally friendly sucrose-based, bio-urethane formula that reduces Arbor's reliance on harmful synthetic materials, without sacrificing an ounce of performance.

ABEC 5 Bearings - ABEC 5 bearings give you a smooth, long-lasting silky glide, so you can keep rollin' with minimal resistance.

70mm (78a) Outlook Wheels - Centerset cruiser wheels that are ready to roll. At 70mm tall, these wheels are great for carving, cruising, pushing and commuting while maintaining a high roll speed smooth feel.

Arbor Axis Bamboo 40" Complete Longboard 2016 - silver trucks / trans amber wheels
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.

Beautiful board

Arbor Axis Bamboo 40" Complete Longboard - silver trucks / trans amber wheels
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.

Handles smoothly, and the board itself is much more beautiful in person. The Sucrose Initiative wheels are definitely worth it

Arbor Axis Bamboo 40" Complete Longboard
Vivek Srinivasa is right that when you buy it some of the hardware (bolts) are loose, but tighten them up and you can't go wrong. It is durable and flexible and it is absolutely flawless
