My board in particular came equipped with Randall R-11 180mm Longboard Trucks. Which boast a reverse kingpin with non restrictive flat bushing cups, and an open pivot cup to help really cut into your carves. While offering a 180mm base for stability. The Wheels I recieved are Surf One Five Star 70mm 78a. Which are center set and have speed cores making them lighter and a little faster. It also came equipped with Bones Reds. Which I thought was awesome, because usually factory shipped boards come with a lower quality bearing.
All, in all. Im very impressed with this board. Right out of the box, complete and ready to go, my board had quick pick up, nice flex, nice response, and a long smooth ride... My only complaint, and its minor. It appears the top and bottom graphics are just that, graphics. Im pretty sure taht the attracive wood grain appearence is just inked on. Its not at all important. Everywhere I take it people always make positive remarks about the vintage looks. Some girl actually asked me if it was a really old skateboard. Kinda dumb but a little flattering.
I reccomend this board to any one just getting into longboarding. Kids looking to get around a school campus, or even an experienced rider looking for a nice cruiser. You wont be dis-apointed!
*NOTE This is shipped as a factory complete longboard. You may need to make adjustments due to size or riding preference.
The board picks up and mantains speed readily on flatground, which is something I love..
It is also very light and as other reviewers mentioned.. very beautiful..
The ladies do take notice(over here, they like to stroke the board,I dunno why..) and you`ll get compliments from lil kids and other riders..
So much for the pros.. the cons will include the issue of wheel-bite, especially if you`ve loosened the trucks too much and if you are sporting 70mm wheels.. 1/2 risers are absolutely necessary to prevent this..
Because of its raised height, pushing may be strenous to the 'pushing feet' , I had a severe case of plantar fasciitis and knee aches(Patella tendinitis) initially.. But with good insoles and heel cushions plus proper pushing techniques, you should be able to manage this..
It does not have any flex or camber (read: lack of suspension) so it doesn`t really soak up the minute bumps on the road well.. hence travelling over rough pavement can be a a little jarring to the sole and joints and you do 'feel' the road..
Its lack of a concave makes it hard for the feet to lock-in the board for heelside speed checks or slides, but toeside checks are possible.. It is also not very suitable for downhill.. speed wobbles do occur and I got thrown off the board once..
But other than that, it makes for a beautiful and affordable cruiser board.. the shipping from Amazon Exports was swift( 1 week to reach Singapore) and competitively priced.. Buy it, ride it and remember to wear a helmut when skating!! =D
