Arbor Axis Bamboo 40" Complete Longboard
This snowboard-inspired drop through is great for relaxed commutes to school or work, and mellow downhill runs. A camber profile and slightly concaved deck helps the board carve with ease while still taking on steeper hills. You'll notice a gentle flex when standing on the board, and this is to lower your center of gravity so that you will have improved control.
This beautiful bamboo deck comes equipped with Paris 50° 180mm trucks, Arbor 69mm 78a Outlook wheels, ABEC 5 Bearings with spacers, and Lucid (clear) Grip. A weapon of choice for long commutes that can also attack hills, the Arbor Axis is a complete package.

Commuter - Longboards for general cruising, ideal for experienced skaters and beginners alike. Never make the boring mistake of walking again!
Carving - Deep carves, boardwalk cruising and mellow hills are calling you. You'll find the longest wheelbases in this category meant for big turns and big fun.
Drop Through - Drop Through boards lower your center of gravity giving you a more responsive and stable ride.
Camber - Camber gives you a charged feeling underfoot and better leverage for turns. They can feel a bit more like a spring at first but any rider will appreciate how this makes the board responsive.
Symmetrical - If you ever think you want to ride your board backwards (freeride/freestyle) then a symmetrical longboard shape will help you with the learning curve. Other than that, it's all preference.
Cutouts - Cutouts around the wheels provide the extra space required to prevent wheelbite.
Mild Concave - Most longboards have a mild concave to give your feet natural curves to lock into. Choosing the right concave can be tough because it's all personal preference but mild concave is always a good place to start.
8-Ply - 8 plies sandwiched together for solid stiffness and control.
Maple + Bamboo Construction - Made with 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.
Paris 180mm Trucks - Paris longboard trucks are taking the industry by storm with a purer metal, greater strength, and quicker turns than the industry standard. Paris 180mm Trucks are ready to bomb any hills that you can throw at them.
ABEC 5 Bearings with Spacers - A smooth, long-lasting glide. Spacers are included to evenly distribute pressures, lengthening the life of your 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.
69mm (78a) Outlook Wheels - Centerset cruiser wheels that are ready to roll. At 69mm tall, these wheels are great for carving, cruising, pushing and commuting while maintaining a high roll speed smooth feel.
Eco-Conscious Efforts - All wood by-products created during the production are reclaimed for use in other Arbor products or by outside companies. Each board is produced with a water-based sanding sealer and final finish to avoid air pollution.
I love this board even more than mine. I told her I trade her boards but obviously she won’t do it
This was the best deal on this board we could find and I am very happy with the service I received from them. I would highly recommend this board and I will buy my next board through here.
