Loaded Longboard Buyer's Guide
The very first Loaded longboard ever released, the Vanguard is a carving and pumping machine. Snowboard-inspired camber and sidecut shape allow for nuanced turn control, while vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass construction provides responsive, high-performance flex characteristics.
The Fattail longboard is designed for parking garages, pumping, commuting, freestyle, and even a bit of freeride. It has high camber for deep, energetic carves that spring you out of one turn and into the next. It also sports a big ol' tail for manuals, quick maneuvers, and freestyle tricks.
Designed as an intuitive drop-through carving and pumping board, the Dervish Sama is low and easy to ride for both the first-time skater looking to cruise around town and the experienced rider seeking a soulful, snowboard-inspired ride and the ability to explore longboard dancing and freestyle. A cambered profile helps spring you in and out of turns, and mild concave ensures control and secure foot placement.
Designed as a smaller drop-through carving and pumping longboard, the Tan Tien is light, low, and easy to ride. Its shorter wheelbase enhances agility around town. Upturned nose and tail kicks allow for manuals, tricks, and quick maneuvers. Perfect for first-time skaters, urban commuters, and experienced freestyle riders with a soft spot for flexy fun.
The Bhangra is our flagship dancing and freestyle longboard deck. With a rockered profile and damp flex, it offers plenty of foot space for dancing on yet is compact and lightweight enough to facilitate slides and advanced flatland tricks. Mild concave and a purposeful griptape design enhance traction in all the right places, and sizeable nose and tail kicks provide ample leverage.
The Poke longboard is perfect for surfing the streets. Rocker, concave, and subtle flex combine to create the ideal balance of comfort and shredability. The big kicktail allows for quick maneuvers, aggressive slides, and freestyle tricks. Pair with the Carver CX.4/C2.4 trucks for a uniquely surfy and pumpable ride.
The Kanthaka longboard blurs the lines between street skating and freeriding. Rocker and flared wheel wells add locked-in ergonomics to the traditional skateboard shape, while composite construction provides lightweight durability. Beefy kicktails ensure plenty of leverage for freestyle tricks, and a symmetrical shape encourages switch riding and shuvit-style tricks.
High-performance drop-through carving design meets innovative longboard construction in the Loaded Icarus. Wheel well flares accommodate big wheels while also providing ergonomic support for improved control when carving, pumping, and freeriding. Minimal nose and tail kicks help navigate city streets and open the door for freestyle trickery. Variable concave yields a consistent flex pattern, and a cork bottom sheet helps quiet road vibration.
Equally adept at downhill, freeride, freestyle, and dancing, the Tesseract longboard is the swiss-army knife of modern all-terrain skateboarding. It integrates rocker, wheel well flares, W concave, and multiple wheelbase options into a lightweight package designed for big mountain roads, high speeds, snappy slides, lofty ollies, and techy manual combos.
The Cantellated Tesseract sports a single kicktail to meet your ollie-popping, tick-tacking, and manual-balancing needs. Its tail features a wider and fuller shape that promotes more frequent and emphatic use than its double-kick cousin.
The Truncated Tesseract offers all the performance-driven ergonomics and construction of the Tesseract in a more traditional and race-inspired shape.
The Overland longboard is designed for the all-around rider seeking a happy medium between a shorter technical double kick and a downhill freeriding machine. Mild radial concave and subtle wheel well flares ensure a comfortable stance, while a beefy kicktail and steeper nose provide crisp pop and ample leverage for ollies, slides, manuals and shuvits.
The Chubby Unicorn is the ultimate longboard for the downhill technophile. Rocker, W concave, functional wheel flares, and nose and tail kicks create an ergonomic platform for downhill, freeride, freestyle, and dancing. CNC routed grab rails, recessed angled truck mounts, and wheel well flares shave weight, lower your center of gravity, and keep your steering geometry true. Orangatang urethane sidewalls, composite construction, and a UHMW base provide abrasion and impact resistance, protection from moisture, and vibration dampening.
