Prism brings you the Monolith, a revamp of the traditional California top-mount design with a .25" rocker and wide standing platform to help you snap in to your slides. A simple concave and taper will give extra control to seasoned riders. If you're ready to take your downhill to the next level, here's a good deck to consider.
- Top Mount
- Adjustable Wheelbase
- Wheel Wells/Flares
- Medium Concave
Downhill - A longboard designated for downhill is crafted specifically for high speeds. Get your full face helmet 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.
Rocker - Rocker decks are great for both downhill and freeride. You'll feel snug and secure on a rocker profile and is especially useful for freeride beginners.
Directional - Directional decks may have a dramatically asymmetrical shape or just a slight taper which can be great for anything from mild cruising to intense downhill; but of course it's all just preference.
Adjustable Wheelbase - A board with an adjustable wheelbase will have multiple truck mounting positions so you can find what exact wheelbase works best for you. Move your axles in for quicker pop, increased agility, higher traction, and lower swing weight; move them out for greater stability and more lean.
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.
Medium Concave - Medium concave shows as a slight rise towards the edges of the deck. 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.
8-Ply - 8 plies sandwiched together for solid stiffness and control.
