What is a longboard for?
As its name suggests, a longboard is similar to a skateboard, but is longer.
It has a rigid deck and bigger, softer wheels for grip and speed that make it perfect for fast riding.

How are our products tested?
All our decks are tested in the laboratory. These tests ensure that all European standards for skateboard/longboard decks are met. Wear tests are also carried out.
As well as lab tests we do field tests - some measured and others based on the testers' opinions - to really put the product through its paces. The result: a thoroughly proven product.
