Introducing the Zorro Chilote – A Marvel of Evolution Inspired by Darwin’s Fox!

Embark on a journey through the Chilean rainforests with our Zorro Chilote, named after the elusive Darwin’s Fox, a small endangered creature that defies the conventional definition of a fox. This deck is the result of meticulous evolution from its predecessor, the Conselecta, born in 2014 before the freestyle deck trend took flight.

The Zorro Chilote has evolved with the latest knowledge, combining a perfect blend of the past and the present. This 40″ freestyle masterpiece bridges the gap between the shorter El-Toro and the slightly longer Axolotl, offering the best of both worlds under your feet.

Description

Construction: Crafted with a cutting-edge construction, the Zorro Chilote boasts a robust horizontally and vertically laminated bamboo core. The core is strategically sandwiched between layers of fiberglass, carbon fiber, bio-epoxy, and bamboo veneers, creating a composite box construction ensuring durability and peak performance. The bamboo veneer on the top and bottom not only adds to the deck’s strength but also keeps your hands free from glass residue. This new and improved layup makes for a stronger board with stiffer kicks. 

Mechanical properties:

The fact is that the tensile strength of carbon is one of the strongest in the world. We do not shy away from adding this composite in this board like we do for all, so saying that this feature is special for Zorro Chilote would be a lie. The all-new bio-epoxy ensures a superior bond and stiffness, surpassing anything we’ve used before. The result is a deck that stands strong against the test of time.

Shape: In short, it’s a fully updated Conselecta shape totaling in 103cm or 40.5” length and a width of 23.3cm or 9.2”. It’s made to be a light, flippy and quick popping deck and can also be very well ridden with 165mm trucks for extra flipness. The sidewalls have been engineered to distribute impact forces to reduce chipping. Lengthwise they are a bit rounded but this increases the chance your deck will roll a bit more on a primo slam instead of disintegrating on impact. The edges of the deck are also rounded off more to keep the looks good even longer. rounded edges enhance durability and aesthetics, ensuring your deck looks good for the long haul.

Concave: With a 12mm median concave, slightly more pronounced than the El Toro, perfectly tailored for the extended wheelbase. This unique design ensures the Zorro Chilote maintains the stiffness of its shorter sibling without the need for extra reinforcements, keeping it agile and light. Small wheel flares provide comfort during casual cruises and add finesse to light freeriding. The addition of rocker not only enhances stability but also lends a hand for those jaw-dropping, extra-high ollies.

Kicks: Engineered for the boldest tricks, Zorro’s kicks are a testament to innovation inspired by years of street skating evolution. Beyond the bolts, the kicks stay flat, creating pressure pockets that turn flip-tricks into a seamless experience. As you move along the upward angle, revel in a pop that stands the test of time. The kicks also boast a touch of concave on the upward part, delivering precise control for intricate no-comply combos. The extra 3mm layer of bamboo at the kicks’ ends ensures durability, allowing you to push your limits without worrying about wear and tear.

Wheelbase: Navigate the urban landscape with ease – the Zorro Chilote strikes the perfect balance. Opt for a long tail and short wheelbase (58.8cm – 23.1″) for maximum control and quick pops or choose a shorter tail with a longer wheelbase (61.8cm – 24.3″) for enhanced control at higher speeds and massive pop. Both options seamlessly accommodate reversed kingpin and traditional kingpin trucks, giving you the freedom to customize your ride.

Elevate your longboarding experience with the Zorro Chilote – where concave, kicks, and wheelbase options converge to create a board that’s as dynamic as your riding style. Order now and embrace the evolution of urban cruising and freestyle mastery!
