The Paradigm is a downhill and freeride board with an adjustable wheelbase to help you find the perfect balance between stability and tight turns. The symmetrical design allows you to pull huge slides and come out riding switch without feeling backwards and the micro drop profile and drop through mounting style lowers your center of gravity for enhanced stability at speeds and while pushing. Whether you're drawn to the steep hills or just need something light to get you across campus, this fun board won't let you down.

Downhill - A longboard designated for downhill is crafted specifically for high speeds. Get your full face helmet and head to the hills.
Freeride - Featuring concaves that create pockets for your feet and shorter wheelbases, freeride boards are meant to make power slides as natural as your choice to skate.
Drop Through - Drop Through boards lower your center of gravity giving you a more responsive and stable ride.
Micro Drop - Micro Drop skateboards give skaters more spots to lock in your feet for steep hills and long standees.
Rocker - Rocker decks are great for both downhill and freeride. You'll feel snug and secure on a rocker profile and is especially useful for freeride beginners.
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.
Adjustable Wheelbase - A board with an adjustable wheelbase will have multiple truck mounting positions so you can find what exact wheelbase works best for you. Move your axles in for quicker pop, increased agility, higher traction, and lower swing weight; move them out for greater stability and more lean.
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.
W-Concave - Added concave in the shape of a W, meaning the sides are raised as well as a slight hump in the middle of the platform. This gives you a little more support where your toes/heels will anchor for slides making this a common choice for freeride.
8-Ply - 8 plies sandwiched together for solid stiffness and control.
Hard Rock Maple Construction - Hard rock maple construction creates durable, long-lasting boards with great impact resistance.
Atlas 180mm 48° Reverse Kingpin Trucks - These tech-heavy trucks feature a massive ball pivot that delivers a 50% increase in load-bearing surface area, which provides more control than traditional pivots and easier turns.
Atlas's patent-pending pivot cup technology self cleans, self centers and is even threaded so you can remove it with your axle.
69mm, 78a Cloud Ride! Cruiser Wheels - Soft and gooey, these wheels have great grip for cornering and easily rolls over cracks, small rocks, and rough surfaces without tripping you up.
ABEC 7 Cloud Ride Bearings - Cloud Ride Bearings are durable, fast, and shined to a high tolerance for a long life and a smooth roll. A great choice for any type of riding.
