Wow, it is finally here. The speedboard longboard from Loaded. The Chubby Unicorn. Blood Slayer Edition.
This is a board ideal for freeride and downhill shredding. It has slightly upturned nose and tail for awesome tricks and launching kicker ramps. Also be ready to rock some sick manuals. Prepare your best freestyle moves, this board was designed from the ground up to handle them like a champ. Loaded has termed this longboard a "shred stick".
Included with this deck are features like W concave which provides support along the rails for extra shredding power. Loaded Boards has also CNC'd the rails of this longboard deck to help with grab tricks, early grabs, and railing corners. Wheel wells come above the deck platform to maximize clearance and allow you to run larger wheels and turn harder without less of a threat from the terrifying wheel bite. This longboard deck also has recessed truck mounting points to keep your center of gravity nice and low, just the way you like it. Prepare for some longboard speedboarding like you've never had before folks. The symmetry of this board promises that you'll always have a way to rip, whether switch or regular.
The Loaded Chubby Unicorn longboard also is made of composite materials which helps dissipate energy from vibrations at high speeds. Around the board itself is a super hard Orangatang urethane sidewall that will protect from abrasions and provide crispy pop. The longboard has a bassword core carefully bonded between fiberglass skins. The base of the Chubby Unicorn longboard features UHMW for increased damping, abrasion resistance, and protection against moisture.
Get ready to shred, this longboard deck is a must have in your quiver of skateboard decks.
Beginning in early 1995, trying to mimic the rush of snowboarding on pavement, our shortboards got less and less play time while we experimented with more stable wheelbases, any funky truck we could get our hands on, and pretty much any material we could put trucks on. All sorts of shapes of Baltic birch plies, solid wood, modified shortboards, and various other objects became projectiles to careen down local hills with.
Looking for a lively and precisely tuned and responsive ride, old snowboards soon found themselves reincarnated with trucks and wheels attached"€awaiting more brutal methods of destruction. We played (and continue to play) with almost every board and truck available and took courses in composite and material technologies, continuing on with our quest to build a lively board capable of skating bigger hills with enhanced control.
September 2000 through June 2002 were dedicated to developing these boards. It was challenging. We enlisted and ended up frustrating many of the greatest minds in skateboarding and snowboarding. Determining and testing the materials was a full time job.
Trying to get the wood and fiberglass to conform to compound contours was an affront to physics and we got sick of hearing that it couldn't be done with curvatures as pronounced as we wanted. But done it was and the first ride made it clear that it should be done.
