The Loaded Tan Tien Longboard Deck is a great board for both intermediate and more advanced users, offering a lively performance perfect for developing new riding styles and tricks. The design blends carving and advanced trick riding seamlessly. Powerful features such as foot-locking concave, drop-thru truck mounting, pumpable camber and responsive nose and tail kicks all contribute to a super responsive, versatile longboard.
The Tan Tien is available in 3 different flexes which are based primarily on rider weight, but also depends on your riding style. Flex 1 is for heavier riders and those wanting to perform more aggressive tricks. It also gives more stability at higher speeds. Flex 2 is a softer flex pattern more for carving and commuting, which gives more control and tighter turns at slower speeds making it easier to slide, but will tend to lose stability slightly at higher speeds. Flex 3 is for younger and lighter riders.
The Tan Tien is constructed from Epoxy and Tri-axle fiberglass with a vert-lam Bamboo core, pressed into concave and convex cambers as well as nose and tail kicks. This makes the board strong and durable. An extra layer of fiberglass to the nose and tail of the deck adds stiffness and strength without compromising on the level of responsiveness and the energy of the central camber.
The deck has been designed to work well with many of the reverse kingpin geometry trucks available including Randal R-II, Paris, Bear and Gullwing Charger, along with wheels with diameters of 70mm+.
The board comes pre-gripped with an aggressive black griptape that provides maximum coverage where needed but also allows the board to flex naturally. It offers enhanced traction and control for sliding and pumping, as well as creating a serious "lock-in" on the nose and tail. The non-gripped area in the centre of the board allows for spinning moves (shoe saving!).
The Tan Tien is an excellent high performance deck for freestyle, carving, pumping and commuting.
