Built The Right Way
We may be the only company that installs bearing spacers on every longboard. Bearing spacers provide precise alignment of the bearings, making them faster, last longer, and reduces wheel wear.
We developed our own riser pad made from urethane, the same durable shock absorbing material used for wheels. Our urethane riser pad creates a smoother ride, keeps hardware tight and extends the life of your longboard.
We use stainless steel hardware because it's stronger and rust resistant. We also dreamed up the nylon seating washer, which prevents the hardware from tearing up the grip tape.
Similar to the way your favorite tire company installs the lug nuts on your wheels, we use a torque driver to ensure every screw and nut is installed with the same amount of pressure.
