Product Description

Wheel colors may vary. The Sector 9 Aperture puts everything into perspective as its Sidewinder truck setup keeps you turning on a dime and wrapping around corners with the greatest of ease. The Aperture Longboard is a 36" cruiser that uses it's length as an advantage, keeping you stable on those fast downhill runs. Outfitted with Gullwing Sidewinder trucks, the double-kingpin on the Aperture makes for some camera-worthy turns and slides, putting response directly underneath your feet.

OK the board is beautiful! Its UNBELIEVABLY perfect for carving and also as others have said, if you tight the trucks a little bit it becomes perfect for cruising trough college or your town as it has a great maneuverability! I havent found not a singles down point for this board.

Pros:
-beautiful design and graphic
-Flat aerodynamic design allows for nice speed and carving
-Carves/handles on a dime
-With Pumping; a little goes a long way. (invaluable feature)
-Fast

Cons:
-Trucks are double edged sword. Great for carving, dangerous for bombing. Speed Wobbles tend to show up so easily (Prob. a little tightening and wheel size upgrade would counteract this)
-Cant stress how much bigger wheels are needed, if your a bomber.

Even with that, this board is a solid 4.5 out of 5.0 must have for beginners-intermediate-advanced.

This is my first long board, but I have ridden daily for years on other skateboards (mostly street, but I also enjoy skate parks when I can get there). My impression is that this is a great starter long board for the price. You can find cheaper set-ups, but the Sector 9 offers solid components that you will be happy to live with for a long time.

Sidewinder (double pivot) trucks allow great carving action and allow for a full u-turn in less than a 10 foot arc. The board is springy and soaks up the bumps on the road. I like the drop through set-up with the side cutouts that allow for the crazy actuation of the trucks while carving hard. My neighborhood roads are chip-sealed (basically: tar, then gravel is sprayed somewhat evenly over the tar when wet.) I can ride comfortably and quite fast in these conditions, although on some high speed hill descents I experienced some speed wobble so I don't know how fast it would go on a smoother road (I will let you know on later tests).

Bearings are "ABEC 5" rated so they are middle-to-upper-end and finely machined--no complaints with them. The wheels are pretty spongy (important on my roads), fast, grippy and generally a good match to the rest of the components. They seem to be holding up well and not grinding away. Sector 9 did a good job.

WHAT WOULD I UPGRADE? After a year or two I can see myself getting a slightly longer 100% bamboo board, but the ones I am looking at start around $200 just for the deck. By then my wheels will need replacing, but I will probably stay with something similar. I will keep the same trucks and bearings.

Surfing the Mountain Pipeline for Intermediate Riders
For this Amazon review, I will be breaking down the Sector 9 Aperture longboard. This board is best optimized by the intermediate longboarder; the deck of this board is maple, the wheels are a hardness of 78a, and the trucks are Gullwing Sidewinders.
The deck and hardware of a longboard are a very important part. The deck on this longboard is a 7 ply maple longboard that is 36 inches long by 9 inches wide. 7ply is a good amount of layers for a person from 125 to 160 pounds; maple is also a very strong and flexible wood that is a smart choice for riders with a budget. The length of the board is for stability and this defines it as an intermediate board; the length is good, but professional boards are better at 42 inches or more. The hardware used for the board is standard Sector 9 hardware, which contains 8 steel screws and nuts. The grip tape used on the deck is also standard stock Sector 9. For intermediate riders the grip tape and hardware are a great cost efficient choice.
The wheels and bearings are the next to look at. Wheels come from the smallest, about 45 millimeter wheels to the largest about 100 millimeters. These wheels are 69 millimeters with a durometer of 78a. The bearings are an Abec 5 rating; this is one of the biggest parts that will separate this board from a professional board. The bearings in this board are mid-level rating; it is good for easy hills. The durometer of the wheels describes the hardness. The durometer of the wheel matters, because the softer the wheel the less bumps in the road you will feel. The downside to having softer wheels though is they crack easier than wheels with a high durometer. The size of the wheel matters, depending on the condition of the road that will be rode.

I purchased this board for my 11-year old son who is just a beginner, but his next-door neighbor has a Sector 9 long board that he rode and liked very much. He wanted one just like it -- or close to it as possible -- for Christmas. I saw a few Sector 9 boards on Amazon and elsewhere, and just relied on the reviews, and some minor knowledge I gained from researching.
This board arrived ahead of time (probably because the supplier is close by), and thus far, my son is very pleased with it, and has been riding and enjoying it very much. His comments are that the board is perhaps a bit "slower" than his friend's; but that it's smoother, and handles better ... specially on the turns.

I will try and provide more feedback when I "learn" more from my son and his experience.

A great board. I use it to get to my college classes. It is a great size board. I am 5'6 and I love it. The only thing I should mention is that the bearings are irremovable shield bearings
