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 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.
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.
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.
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.
Kicktail - Kicktails on longboards can be used to ollie, manual, and do flip tricks just like on a regular skateboard.
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.
Maple / Coconut Construction - The natural coconut fibers used for the top and bottom ply of this deck allows Globe to use less maple for an eco-friendly deck that leaves a smaller footprint. Coconuts are readily available and they come from a self sustaining crop.

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°.
