Concave

This board is pretty wide at 23,5 centimeters. The concave is considerate to this. It has a rather tough concave making this board very stiff. The middle part, between the bolts lengthwise is pretty flat. Giving you a large platform to land on while doing big flip tricks. Accentuated concave at the stance will let you know where your feet are at all times.

Kicks

Big ones. The shape of the kicks are chosen in such a way that it’s great for no-comply pressure flip tricks and no-comply variations. Pops kind of like a skateboard. Which is pretty awesome considering the length. Also it works well with the design which is nice. Large platform to land so you can revert out of tricks easily (yeah.. easy). Shape, design and practicality come together nicely in this board.

Mechanical Properties

Big concave all over, combined with the length of the wheelbase and the length of the kicks give this board a really hard feel. Stiff. Pretty damned stiff. Not a rock. Just enough to have this springy feedback when doing tricks. Carbon, different glass weaves of different weights and reinforced kicks make this board durable and resistant to a very long and hard pounding. Get your minds out of the gutter.

Wheelbase

64,5 centimeters (25,4 inches) and 67,5cm (26,6 inches) for the widest option. Not too long, not too short. The perfect middle ground.
Style

Like a herd of bison plowing through a picnic. Balloons fly away into the sky. The next day in the distance a church bell rings.

Suggested set-up

This board is pretty all round. You can go with all kinds of 180’s, bushings and all that. Whatever you like. If you want bigger wheels we do suggest an appropriate sized riser. It does have flares so it’s ok to use some bigger wheels. To a certain point. Maybe after 70 millimeters you need some risers, but this depends on how turny you like your trucks to be. Tim: “65mm is the best”.
