Which Longboard Setup Should I Choose?
Want us to let you in on a little secret?
Here’s something most longboard companies don’t tell you.
You probably think that the deck is the most important part of a longboard… right?
The deck is important, sure. It’s the bit you stand on. It’s (usually!) the only part of your longboard to touch any part of your body. Its shape, concave, profile and construction all have a big impact on the experience you are going to have when you push off.
We think it’s actually the trucks that make all the difference.
If you think about it, your entire body weight, plus all the force you put through your feet to turn and steer, AND all the feedback from the road surface, all have to go through your trucks.
As it’s your trucks that are responsible for making your board turn when you lean, it’s the quality and setup your trucks that have the biggest impact on how your board feels when it turns.
We started longboarding because we were looking for a feeling. If a board doesn’t feel good, then what’s the point?
That’s why we never skimp on trucks. All our setups come with the best – Sabre Trucks.
Wheels are also important. So we spec the best Cult Wheels that we can on all our completes for the price.
Primo Sabre Bearings and hardware finish all our builds off.
We sell most of our boards with a choice of setups. Different setups work best on different boards, so we’ve specced accordingly to give you as much choice as possible.
