Terror at Top Speed!

Ever since way back in the 1990’s when I saw Cool Runnings, I’ve been terrified of downhill super-speed sports. This gives me horrible flashbacks! It rocks so hard, I can barely believe it. I’ve got such a reverence for people who are able to do this sort of sport that I can barely contain my excitement at this clearly professionally designed downhill sports board on four wheels. Zoom!

This is an adjustable skate machine. It’s got chamfered rails, trucks adjustable between 0 and 90 degrees, precision CNC machined parts, all the excellence of a perfect ride you’d only otherwise be able to get with a sack of baseplates, hangars, risers, gear of all sorts. Get yourself a drop deck, a top mount, a drop trough, evo setup, everything you’ve ever wanted.

The trucks are made of aerospace grade aluminum, the axels machined from solid blocks of chromium vanadium steel. The deck has a birch and airex core and is vacuum laminated with carbon fiber and epoxy resin. All of this fine-tuned to your specifications.

    You know, that is just another longboard with flashier (And IMO Flawed) Design.
    This is nothing new, down-hill longboards have sxisted for years now. And I don't don't trust this one.
    The trucks are mounted ontop of the board, and out on the edges. Making all the pressure go onto those points, which i believe would get very unstable.
    So I'll stick to regular downhill dropthrough longboards, thank you.

      Yes, we've all seen "new" carbon fiber down-hill decks, but at least his truck system is a new idea. I know I would like a truck system that allows me to manipulate the base angle with out having to change out base plates. As for mounting, there's nothing wrong with doing things different with truck mounting, and as a designer, you think you'd be able to encourage that. I would like to see the deck in action. I'd be more worried about the torque through the brackets than "Making all the pressure go onto those points"
