About this item

  • CRAFTED FOR CARVING – The Loaded Vanguard brings lightweight snowboard-inspired construction and performance to the pavement. Camber, sidecuts, and high-energy flex allow for responsive carving, pumping, and commuting.
  • ELEGANT DESIGN – Tapered shape maximizes wheel clearance for deep carves and tight turns. Sidecuts reduce torsional stiffness between the feet for greater nuances in the turning radius. Mild concave provides edge-to-edge control, while the topmount and cambered platform provides energetic carving performance. Lightweight, snowboard-inspired bamboo and fiberglass construction pair with a cambered profile for a lively and engaging ride.
  • HIGH-PERFORMANCE FLEX – Bamboo and fiberglass provide lively and energetic flex perfect for hard carving and pumping. Available in two sizes and five flex ratings to tailor the ride to your stance, weight, and style. Lower flex is ideal for heavier riders; higher flex is recommended for lighter riders or those looking for a more responsive board.
  • PARIS TRUCKS – Paris 180mm, 50° V2 longboard trucks deliver smooth and controlled turning response that's perfect for carving, pumping, and all-around riding.
  • ORANGATANG WHEELS – Orangatang 75mm, 83a Durians provide just the right balance of grip and slide for a freeride-friendly setup. Includes Loaded Jehu V2 bearings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing board and amazing company
By Brian L. on January 11, 2017
First off the stock photos don't do this beautiful board justice. The Otang wheels with the black on gold Paris trucks look fantastic. Also, the board assembly was spot on and I only had to tighten up the trucks a bit because I'm a fatty. As for the board itself, it turns like butter and the wheels eat cracks and rough spots for breakfast. Getting used to the flex was kind of weird at first, it felt like a trampoline with wheels on it. Once you get the hang of it though you'll be Carverd grad in no time. I will definitely be buying from Performance Longboarding again.
