Crunchy Nut Cornflakes Product Placement…
These two new shapes have a lot in common – they are both designed with a slidey, carvey ride, if you’ve only been skating longboards for a couple of years you’ll know it as “Freeriding.” They both come set up with the mighty Cult Classics and proven Sabre Trucks and bushings. They are both from our new rocker mould – 0.75″ rocker, and 0.75″ radial concave.
Lots of lovely rocker!
The main differences between the two are:
>The Elevator is topmount, the Symbian is drop-through. The Symbian is slidier, easier for more technical freeride and dancing moves, whereas the Elevator is grippier, with a touch more control when sliding for the more advanced skater, or those who just prefer that surfy topmount feeling.
Rich with a sideways Elevator around the Bristol “corner training” location… surfin…
>The Symbian is completely symmetrical, as the name suggests, perfect for shuvits and flips. With the Elevator, we kept things directional, using a similar profile to the renowned Sequel and Vandella race decks.
You asked for symmetrical decks…
>The Elevator is 8ply Canadian Maple for a little flex, whilst the Symbian is 9ply for extra strength and less “bounce” for super long standup slides.
Rob needed a stiff deck for this sort of steepness… arrrrgh!!!!
>The Symbian has a fully-functional nose and tail, giving a little more maneuverability and even alowing ollies and flipsÂ should you desire, whilst the Elevator has only a very small tail and barely any nose.
>The Elevator has probably the craziest graphic we’ve ever done – full-chrome print with a multicoloured fade underneath, artwork by Tom Moore – and also a mashup of Green and Blue Cult Classics. If you want to stand out from the crowd, stare lovingly at your own reflection all day, or deflect laser beams, you are gonna like this…
This photo really does not do it justice… believe us!
These two decks are, in a way, the spiritual successors to the legendary Lush Samba – retired from the Lush Quiver after seven years of service!
Both are available now from your local skateshop, or if you’re in the UK, Canada, USA or Germany, right here from our own website from the product pages.
