The board comes fully assembled and ready to ride at no extra charge. If you want to assemble the board yourself, we send you all the hardware you need.
If the board is to be used for all-around riding or getting around town, spacers are NOT needed. Spacers sit between the bearings in the wheel and provide additional stability for more advanced riding.
Drop Thru shock pads, while not required to enjoy your ride, are a great way to remove unwanted vibrations from the road.
Used to keep the bolts on your board nice and tight and/or to assemble the board.
Lubricant and cleaning kits are used to keep the bearings in the wheels turning quickly and smoothly; if this is your first board, these upgrades are not necessary. Make sure you love to ride first!
CUSTOMER REVIEWS
beginner
IVE BEEN RESEARCHING ABOUT LONGBOARDS and whaT StYle to get. thIs one looks Really good and i think i'd fit on my level. ive never been longboarding or skateboarding but with this, i think i can Learn a lot and progress. with this, i really want to go fast and be able to dance. i hope this is good for crossing legs, dancing and high speeds. and When im into long boarding And i cAn do tricks, i miGht get a more complex. maybe i can get a deck deaigned for sliding
Great board
My first board and probably my favorite, part can be chocked up to being sentimental, but a great all around board

I love it for cruising, but i've also taken it up to 35mph
I've used it for downhill with great results, but that's not what it's intended for
Don't add grip,
It comes pre gripped with lucid clear grip and the koa top sheet is beautiful.
This board is the perfect mix of flex and stiffness
I'm a heavier rider ~250 lbs and it still holds up to my weight
It's extremely versatile, and goes best with Paris 180's 50° trucks
I've had mine for 3.5 years now and have ridden it around 500 miles and it hasn't failed me once
Amazing board beyond a doubt......
I got this board in and it came fully assembled and ready to go. The first time riding it was a dream. I had the shock pads installed on it, which I recommend for a smooth comfortable ride. The flexiness isn't all of what i thought it was, it's still has a great flex to it and i wouldn't stay it can't break in to a better flex from more riding. What i found after riding it for a couple of days, is the trucks became a bit squeaky and loud, but it got better and I fixed it using some internet advice :P
The ONLY downside to this board, is there is no kick-tail! That's the only thing I would change about it. I watched videos and read descriptions and Arbor said it had a "functional" kick-tail, but most riders(including me) say it's questionable....
Im super impressed with this board and the set up i have fits me well. The recycled glass grip tape looks nice on the koa wood, and the graphic is pretty sweet too. I've already shredded a couple nice sized hills with this board, it's crazy stable and smooth, and i haven't got any sketchy speed wobbles at all. Not to mention, it's scary quite on fresh paved road.. It's all around a great board for anything you put it up to, no joke.

- Thank you for reading this, I took the time to write it because I didn't have much to read before i bought the board, so this is for you guys who really want detail about the board and personal experience from riding it.
arbor axis koa
this board is all around awsome and is a joy to ride

setup i ride on this board:

-caliber 50 black outs
-rush ceramics (they are ok i prefer reds)
-sector 9 butterballs (with this board they are EXCELENT for sliding
Love it
This board is great, i have it set up with bone swiss bearings and the default dano downhills. very smooth ride and looks sexy as f*uck. It carves really nice. my only concern is that i wish it was a tad bigger, like 2 inches longer and and maybe a 1/2-1inch wider.

Great board tho, i really reccomend it
The beautifully elegant Arbor Axis
The Arbor Axis is longboard art at its finest. With a Koa top layer that creates a gorgeous look as you're riding, to the artistic photography by Matt Smith on the flip side, Arbor designed this board as a cruiser oozing with style and sophistication.

The maple wood used for the board is extremely flexy, but even for a big man like me, 6'5" 240lb, there's enough stiffness to make it stand up even to the heaviest punishment. This is a surprisingly resilient board. The Axis's namesake is the symmetrical shape it has, meaning it can be ridden either direction equally. The board also has a really nice concave sort of feel that is very tactile and responsive.

Arbor uses a lot of recycled material for their board, so you can feel good buying a board that's environmentally conscious. I also stocked it with Arbor's Sucrose Initiative 72mm wheels which are the perfect match for this board.

I picked out some Caliber 50 trucks that are just a solid set of trucks to make every turn on the Axis feel way too smooth. Tack on some Bones Super Reds bearings and you'll be bombing crazy hills with huge amounts of speed.

The only negative thing I have to say is there is no kick tail, not exactly a negative of any sort since I realized that when I bought a drop-through, but still there are plenty if curbs I wish I could have just hopped with a kick tail. Something I definitely won't overlook on my next board.

Simply put, the Arbor Axis
Great board!
I bought this board about 6 months ago, and have loved it since the first day i got it. This board carves nice, rides smooth, and is just a great board. Highly reccomended
all around awesome board
Overall this board is awesome! This is my first longboard and the moment I got on I was ready to go bombing down some hills. Seriously great board
Nice cruiser
I've had this board for 3 months now and I enjoy it a lot.
It's a very good cruiser and you can get in some tight carves too.
With the caliber 50 trucks, they are pretty nice for some downhill because there isn't that much flex.
I also did some sliding on it but it's quite hard to me because I have 4presidents on it and they aren't really made for sliding.
The recycled glass grip looks very nice. Normal grip tape is just a bit better but I don't really care. The tail and the nose on this board aren't very useful because they're small so if you want to do tricks, like ollie or something, you better get another board.
Overall i thinks the board looks very nice

I recommend it to any beginner because it's easy to ride and you'll have a lot of fun.

Setup:

- Arbor Axis koa 2013

- Orangatang 4presidents wheels (good for downhill and cruising+carving)

- Caliber 50 degrees trucks (bit heavy, i think Paris trucks are better)

- Zealous bearings (very good)
