7-Ply - This is the standard for a reason; 7 ply construction gives you a deck that is durable, sturdy and poppy without breaking the bank.
Hard Rock Maple Construction - This is the standard of all skateboards and longboards. Hard rock maple has proven to be durable and responsive underfoot.
6.0" Slant Trucks - High-grade alloy construction and hardware, engineered to stand up to the most abusive skateboarding. All Slant trucks are guaranteed for life.
Globe 62mm 83a Wheels - Designed for a smooth, carefree cruising experience. Soft with plenty of grip, but hard enough that sliding through turns and drifting is a breeze.
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.
Kick Tail - A kick tail allows for easy ollies and grab tricks along with improved overall maneuvering while cruising.
Wheel Wells - Wheel wells help prevent wheel bite by providing more clearance between the wheel and the underside of your deck. More wheel clearance allows you to take sharper turns without experiencing bite.
The large size does sacrifice a bit of responsiveness. However, I had no trouble dodging people and debris with it and I was still able to make somewhat sharp turns.
I read beforehand that cruisers ride best on level surfaces, so my main concern before purchase was how it would handle hills. Thankfully, it rides down mild hills in residential areas very well.
When going down hills with this board, I do recommend: placing more weight on the front trucks, lowering your center of gravity by bending your knees more, and making stable, wide carves. These actions will help reduce speed wobbles and control your velocity downhill.
Overall, this is an excellent cruiser complete that's perfect for beginners. I really recommend this if you're interested in a board that'll get you from Point A to Point B smoothly while avoiding obstacles.
