Ride Style

Freeride - Much of skateboarding has been created by people who push the envelope on what is thought to be possible. Freeride is a direct result of this. Slide pucks and buttery wheels are your best friends once you have freeride on your mind. Often featuring concave that create pockets for your feet and shorter wheelbases, freeride boards are meant to make power slides as natural as your choice to skate.

Mounting Style

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.

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

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

Double Kicks - With a kicktail at the nose and tail of the board ollies and flip tricks will become part of your arsenal. With symmetrical nose and tail kicks you are sure to enjoy switch riding as well. Double kicks are most often found on freestyle boards, but can add versatility to any deck.

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.

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.

Would be 5 stars but didn't realize the plate on the truck was plastic until it arrived. Deck looks great feels comfortable.

Asked by Rufino P. on 3/15/2017
Is this good for cruising on NYC sidewalks where there are decent cracks and bumps?
Answered by James D (Tactics Employee) on 3/16/2017
Yes, the larger, softer wheels will allow you to manage those bumps, cracks, and rocks without a problem!

Asked by Rufino P. on 3/15/2017
I am a beginner skateboarder who wants to start longboarding as a way to get around NYC. I learned the basics of skateboarding, and now want to get a longboard because my skateboard now is really cheap and the bearings, deck and trucks suck. Is this a good board for a beginner? Is it just good at a reasonable speed for flat ground?

By the way, I am 5' 7" and 155lb.

What are the size and durometer of the wheels?

Also, are the trucks metal, alloy, or plastic?
Answered by James D (Tactics Employee) on 3/16/2017
This board would be fine for beginners like yourself, and will be good for cruising and using to get around. The wheels are 70mm and have an 83a hardness. The trucks are made with alloy.

Asked by Owen Drake on 6/11/2016
Is this good for a 5`11 beginner transitioning from a 44inch one that is just to big and heavy to be effective?
Answered by Elijah W (Tactics Employee) on 6/20/2016
If you are wanting to get your freeriding skills locked down and improve with a more nimble and lightweight board this would be a great option!
