Reverse trucks to aid turning and for better speed control

What is a longboard for?
Longboards are longer than ordinary skateboards. Their wheels are bigger and softer, making them more comfortable to ride. It's easier to pick up speed and you don't notice bumps as much because the soft wheels absorb vibrations. Basically, it's the perfect skateboard for short journeys around town and for casual rides. And as well as being fun, it's an eco-friendly means of transport.

Great skateboard, it’s a really comfortable ride.
Used for More than 1 year
I've been using this for around a year now, and haven't touched any of my other boards since.
I did change the bushings to give it a bit more maneuverability, but in all fairness I never gave the original ones a chance to see if they settled-in, so they may have been fine.
It's a lovely smooth ride, especially if you get to give it a go on that lovely smooth shop floor!

Buy this you will not be disappointed. I've not been on a skateboard in years, this is easy to ride. Tic tac easily if you want or just push. Great value for money
