Downhill - A longboard designated for downhill is crafted specifically for high speeds. Get your full face helmet and head to the hills.
Freeride - Featuring concaves that create pockets for your feet and shorter wheelbases, freeride boards are meant to make power slides as natural as your choice to skate.
Drop Through - Drop Through boards lower your center of gravity giving you a more responsive and stable ride.
Micro Drop - Micro Drop skateboards give skaters more spots to lock in your feet for steep hills and long standees.
Symmetrical - If you ever think you want to ride your board backwards (freeride/freestyle) then a symmetrical longboard shape will help you with the learning curve. Other than that, it's all preference.
Cutouts - Cutouts around the wheels provide the extra space required to prevent wheelbite.
Double Kicks - With a kicktail at the nose and tail of the board, ollies and flip tricks will become part of your arsenal. Double kicks are most often found on freestyle boards, but can add versatility to any skateboard.
Deep Concave - Deep concave is like a bucket-seat for your feet. It offers supreme leverage for slides and provides a platform in the middle for downhill riding when you want your speed tuck to be pristine for the whole heat.
8-Ply - 8 plies sandwiched together for solid stiffness and control.
Maple - Cold climate maple from North America is the time-tested standard in skateboard construction. To make this deck, Sector 9 presses together plies of cold climate maple to give you a board that is nice, responsive and super durable.
Rocker - This mold drops down slightly between the truck mounts, allowing for a lower center of gravity.
Symmetrical Shape - The same shape from front to back. This gives you a consistent feel under-foot and in each direction, ideal for freeriding.
