Overview
The Globe Spearpoint Bamboo 40" complete longboard combines the low center of gravity of drop through mounted trucks with a long wheel base for excellent stability and easy pushing. The Spearpoint features a bamboo top and bottom ply that makes the deck more flexible than traditional all-maple. Deep cutaway wheel wells allow you to carve and turn without fear of wheel bite.

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.

Freeride - Much of skateboarding has been created by people who push the envelope on what is thought to be possible. Freeride is a direct result of this. Slide pucks and buttery wheels are your best friends once you have freeride on your mind. Often featuring concave that create pockets for your feet and shorter wheelbases, freeride boards are meant to make power slides as natural as your choice to skate.

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

Standard - For the rider that just wants a solid plank underfoot without reactive camber or mellow rocker, the standard deck will deliver exactly what you see in the picture. A favorite for technical downhill, standard decks are the most predictable and some swear they break-in better than other profiles.

Deck Shape

Directional - Directional boards might have concave towards the front, maybe the tail is tapered, it could be shaped to have a fatter nose than tail, and it probably feels awkward if you hop on backwards. However, when you want to pump a board, or you want to have something that sets you up for the fastest line, directional boards are great. Whether you are looking for a really responsive directional camber board or a precision downhill deck, a directional board could be in your future.

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.

Wheel Wells/Flares - For the boards that don't need full wheel cutouts, wheel wells are beveled out of the board to give the extra clearance needed to avoid wheelbite.

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.

Deck Construction

8-Ply Bamboo - A top and bottom ply of bamboo sandwiches inner plies of hard rock maple. This construction method is stable, responsive and a bit more flexible than standard maple decks.

Truck Options

180mm Slant Inverted Trucks - Slant Inverted Trucks provide a smooth, stable roll for easy carving and transitions with great stability at higher speeds. Featuring high-grade alloy construction and hardware, these trucks are engineered to stand up to the most abusive skating. All Slant trucks are guaranteed for life.

Slant Inverted Trucks come with reversible hangers, so you can choose between a 50° or 54° angle. They come stock at 50°, which provides greater stability at high speeds, but if you want to execute tighter turns feel free to flip that hanger to 54°.

Wheel Options

Globe 69mm 83a Wheels - Hard enough for sliding through turns and drifting, yet soft enough for riding over craggy streets without getting hung up on rocks.

Bearings

ABEC 7 Bearings - ABEC 7 bearings are highly precise and turn faster for longer. A precise bearing means that it has a higher tolerance to heat caused by friction.

The northeast is covered in snow and ice, but this board is a high quality product. From what I can tell riding it around the halls of my dorm, it's my favorite board so far

Globe Spearpoint Bamboo 40" Complete Longboard - silver trucks/red wheels
Great for what ever you want. this was the 1st board i ever bought! i was deciding between this and sector 9 or the original Longboards but the price was just too high. This Board gives you the same quality as the other boards plus it's cheaper. totally would recommend this board to anyone. My friends love it cause it rides smoother and goes faster than their longboards do. I taught my girlfriend how to Longboard on it too. so it's a great board for a great price.
