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.
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).
Micro Drop - Characterized by, yep you guessed it, a small drop from where the truck baseplate attaches to the deck to where your feet stand, micro drop decks are versatile and add stability to your ride.
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.
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.
Adjustable Wheel Base - Sometimes you want a highly maneuverable setup that can navigate around people and cars in the city and turn on a dime. Other times you want a longer wheelbase for stability at speed. A board with an adjustable wheel base will have multiple truck mounting positions so you can change your setup according to your environment.
Waterproof - Full composite construction, urethane rails and urethane truck mounts create a waterproof, sealed deck with added vibration dampening. You can ride year around in any weather condition with confidence – without fear of de-lamination or cracking due to water penetrating the wood core.
Urethane Rails and Truck Mounts - Full urethane rails and truck mounts offer industry leading durability. These curb breaking rails will keep your deck on the street longer than most decks.
Precision Machined Truck Mount - Moonshine truck mounts are 100% level. Urethane truck mounts are precision machined for trusted accuracy. This translates to confidence and performance at high speeds.
Compression Molded CNC Machined Wheel Wells - All wheel wells are machined prior to the deck's compression molding process. This delivers additional structural integrity compared to traditional longboards where structural integrity is lost after pressing.
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.
Laser Cut Roam Griptape - Factory installed, laser cut Roam grip tape keeps you locked in.
