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.

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

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.

Medium 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. Medium 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 medium concave is really good place to start if you don't know your preference.

Deck Construction

7-Ply Hardrock Maple - Traditional for a reason, 7-ply hardrock maple construction gives you a deck with tons of response and a long life.

Deck Features

Double Drop Platform - Take the ergonomic bowl for your feet that the Single Drop Platform offers you and combine it with cut-outs for drop through trucks and you get one stable low rider. This profile is meant for the sharpest corners, steepest hills, and longest commutes.

Trucks

Triumph 180mm Trucks - With stability in mind, Triumph trucks are ideal for long-distance and downhill. Each set comes with double barrel 79a bushings, ideal for smooth predictable turns.

Wheels and Bearings

Gravity Blazers 70mm Wheels - This is the bigger brother of Gravity's Burner wheels. Being a midsize wheel with square outer and inner lips, this wheel is made to grip through the turns and its larger size is faster on the straights.

Durometers:

Green - 77a (SOFT)

Black - 80a (SOFT)

Orange - 83a (SOFT)

Width: 55mm

Contact Patch: 54mm

Weight: 179g

**Note: Wheels equipped shown in color name (Ex:"black trucks / burner black wheels" would mean you're getting 80a durometer wheels)

Gravity ABEC 5 Bearings - Gravity's ABEC 5 bearings are equally at home cruising the block or shredding the hill and feature a removable dust shield so you can clean all the junk out of your bearings when they get dirty.
