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.

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

Kicktail - Kicktails on longboards can be used to ollie, manual, and do flip tricks just like on a regular skateboard.

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.

Bamboo Top Construction - A top ply of bamboo layered over maple plies for a bit more flex than a full maple deck.

Details

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.
