Ride Style

Commuter - 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 little 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.

Carving & 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

Top Mount - The classic skate mount. Trucks are mounted from the top to sit flush with the bottom of the board for that proven ride and feel (as opposed to drop-through mounts, which are mounted through the board to lower your center of gravity).

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 board for carving and cruising or a precision downhill deck, a directional board could be in your future.

Deck Features

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 Hard Rock Maple Construction - 8 plies of hard rock maple for a durable and stiff ride. This construction method is great for carving and cruising, providing a responsive and secure feel under your feet.

Truck Options

150mm 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 76mm 78a Wheels - These wheels are designed to let you cruise over bumps for a smooth, carefree ride. Big enough to get the job done and just hard enough for easy shredding maneuvers.

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.

Globe Arcadia 36" Complete Longboard
If you want a short review, read this. If you want a full review, read below the dotted line:

This board is so beautiful and versatile for many long boarding activities. It is of high quality and very speedy, although it loses speed just slightly more.

------------–-------------
Now for the full review:

This board is great for anyone looking for a good cruiser/commuter Longboard for any travel. City travel is a breeze since the bearings are decent for stock. However, two shields on two of my bearings came off, but who cares?

It is great as a pintail, and great for carving at both the 50• and 54• hangers. It is also good for a person like me trying to get into downhill. The dirty gold trucks look amazing, and the red/white stripe design looks better in person!

This board is great for beginner downhillers, commuters, and carvers. The 76mm wheels are some of th biggest I've seen and are very grippy. They are very smooth on all terrain like the usual cracked streets of NYC. This board is good for anyone.

The size is perfect for a person who wants a medium sized Longboard.

Globe Arcadia 36" Complete Longboard - red
Love everything about about the design & I especially like the way the wheels make it a smoother ride. The only thing I would say that I don't like is the grip tape it's not as good as good quality as the sector 9 grip tape.

Globe Arcadia 36" Complete Longboard
This board is f@#%ing beautiful. I've had it for 3 years. Its finally giving out. I'm 200 pounds and ride aggressive at least 10 miles every other day sine I got it, I slide, I've lost a chunk out my wheel and it still rides smooth, I'm in Florida(RAIN!!!), bad side walks every where. The woods mad strong. Oh and kick flips perfect.

Asked by Rufino P on 4/19/2017
Are these wheels centerset, offset, or sideset?
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 4/19/2017
This is a back set core and will be closer in to the hanger
