The Freebyrd Lo-Pro is a symmetrical cutaway drop through longboard, aimed at the beginner.
It features a super-comfortable rockered profile and a nice responsive flex.
The Freebyrd Lo-Pro features drop-through truck mounting.
This means that the trucks are mounted through the deck via the top of the truck baseplate, rather than on the bottom of the baseplate like a regular skateboard or longboard.
This results in:
- lower deck height = easier to push and footbrake
- lower center of gravity = more stable at speed
- lower ride height in relation to the wheels = slides become easier to initiate and control
All these characteristics make the Freebyrd a perfect beginner longboard. It’s great for learning longboarding basics and learning to slide.
For a lower ride height and a more comfortable board feel, we’ve pressed the Freebyrd Lo-Pro in our rocker mold.
The rockered profile and the drop-through truck mounting combine to make a lower profile than a most other longboards out there, hence the name: Lo-Pro
The flex and the drop-through trucks work together to create a comfortable cruiser that will also do a bit of dancing and sliding if you want.
A Premium Setup
If we’re honest, it’s the undercarriage – especially the trucks – that really makes the difference to how well a longboard skates.
We’ve also treated this board to a custom die-cut griptape job with a top logo, which makes it a bit easier to see (and feel!) where your feet are on the board when you’re skating it.
With the Freebyrd Lo-Pro, you’re getting a premium setup – it’ll feel awesome underfoot, straight out of the box.
The Ideal Cruiser Board
The Freebyrd Lo-Pro is a great all-rounder, perfect for nipping to the shops, learning to slide or just cruising around.
It has a flexy ride thanks to the rockered maple construction, giving great energy return from carving turns and a smooth ride over rougher road surfaces.
If you’re looking for a drop-through longboard cruiser – you are in the right place!
