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 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.

Downhill - Downhill is like freefall; something to be experienced, not described. Downhill incorporates elements of carving, freestyle, and freeride with the main focus on the thrill of speed. Look for technical features using everything from fiberglass, to w-concave, urethane bumpers, and a plethora of materials. Get your full face helmet and pucks out, and head to the hills.

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

Drop Down - Drop Down boards lower your center of gravity just like drop through constructed boards, the difference being that one is a mount style, and the other features a dropped down platform in the construction. Drop Down boards are constructed to dip down below where the trucks are mounted which means you're closer to the road, this style of board is used primarily for downhill riding because it offers more stability and control, and gives you more leverage when cornering and sliding.

Deck Shape

Symmetrical - Symmetrical boards are ideal for freeride and freestyle. The freeride pros will tell you that figuring out how to come out of a slide switch is not an easy task and having a symmetrical deck underfoot will help you speed through the learning curve to the top of the class. Freestyle skaters love their double kicks and reliable symmetrical boards to land flip tricks. So if these pursuits sound like your style, check out symmetrical boards.

Deck Features

Cutouts - With big wheels you need lots of room to carve and dig into turns, cutouts around the wheels provide the extra space required to prevent wheelbite while cutouts for your trucks appear on drop through decks so you can ride closer to the ground.

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.

W-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 and W-concave looks like the letter W, makes sense right? Breaking away into a slide becomes easier with this style because you have a little more support where your toes/heels will anchor.

Deck Construction

9-Ply Maple Construction - 9 plies of hard rock maple for an incredibly durable and stiff ride. This construction method is great for carving and cruising, providing a responsive and secure feel under your feet. Epoxy resin makes boards lighter, stronger and longer lasting than normal water-based decks.

Truck Options

180mm 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 70mm 83a Wheels - Hard enough for sliding through turns and drifting, yet soft enough for riding over craggy streets without getting hung up on rocks.

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.

Fast delivery. Great quality product. This is my first long board and really skateboard of anytime. I'm an old dude that just wanted to ride with his son and connect with him at that level. So far this has exceeded my expectations and were having a blast.

The board is fantastic. Started out pretty new on it as a rider. Low ground clearance makes you feel safe on it. Even the tape is comfy to the touch.
