The Globe Spearpoint Bamboo 40" complete longboard combines the low center of gravity of drop through mounted trucks with a long wheel base for excellent stability and easy pushing. The Spearpoint features a bamboo top and bottom ply that makes the deck more flexible than traditional all-maple. Deep cutaway wheel wells allow you to carve and turn without fear of wheel bite.
Commuter - Longboards for general cruising, ideal for experienced skaters and beginners alike. Never make the boring mistake of walking again: get your skate-commute on!
Drop Through - Drop Through boards lower your center of gravity giving you a more responsive and stable ride.
Standard - Standard decks are the most predictable and some swear they break-in better than other profiles. Great for any skill level.
Directional - Directional decks may have a dramatic cut like a pintail shape or they can have a slight taper which is generally reserved for downhill skateboard shapes, but of course it's all preference.
Cutouts - Cutouts around the wheels provide the extra space required to prevent wheelbite.
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 - Most longboards have a mild concave to give your feet natural curves to lock into. Choosing the right concave can be tough because it's all personal preference but mild concave is always a good place to start.
Bamboo Construction - Bamboo offers a solid alternative to standard maple decks, the detail of the grain offering a unique look.
180mm Slant Inverted Trucks - These trucks come with reversible hangers. They come stock at 50°, which provides greater stability at high speeds but if you want to execute tighter turns flip the hanger to 54°.
All Slant trucks are guaranteed for life.
Globe 69mm 83a Wheels - Hard enough for sliding through turns and drifting, yet soft enough for riding over craggy streets without getting hung up on rocks.
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.
