Bamboo Drop Through Cruiser Board
The difference between a good board and a great board comes down to the deck. The bamboo and fiberglass used in this deck make it one of the best cruiser style boards on the market! The 3 plies of bamboo give the deck great flexibility while the fiberglass reinforces the deck to add strength and durability. On top of the huge performance benefits of the bamboo fiberglass blend, these materials also make one awesome looking build!
A decks flexibility has a huge impact on a boards feel and performance while cruising and carving. Too stiff and the board feels rigid and harsh. Too soft and the board will feel like you're riding a pool noodle. The right amount of flex results in a ride that feels lively and responsive. This deck feels like it is pushing you out of your turns and carves, allowing you to maintain speed with little effort. The flexibility of this board is truly something to brag about!
The bamboo drop through shape features a shallow concave with a nice arched camber and subtle kick tails on both ends. The shallow concave provides maximum conform under foot while cruising. The deck gets its lively spring feel from the combination of materials and camber in the design. If your in the mood to dance or partake in some freestyle you will undoubtably appreciate the subtle kick tails designed into the shape. The shape also features cut outs around the wheels which eliminate the possibility of wheel bite.
