Quick Overview

This is a great board for cruising, carving, and dancing!
DETAILS

How It Shreds:

 

The Loaded Vanguard longboard is an amazing board for surf-style cruising and carving. Loaded has an amazing line up of carving boards with serious dancing potential. Skate like a surfer with this beautiful longboard! The Loaded Vanguard has quite a bit of flex and offers multiple flex options for full rider customization. It has a nice amount of camber as well to counter the flex so that when you ride the board levels out to be nice and flat. We have been fans of the Loaded Vanguard since it’s early days and still use it for getting around to this day. We even have some old oak ones lying around that we will never get rid of! Basically this board is a blast and you have to check it out!

 

Recommended Components:

-Bones Reds Bearings

Practically indestructible and more Loaded than ever. These lively bamboo composite boards offer the finest ride legally available and are the most popular longboards we sell.

Advanced technology, innovative design and a commitment to using only the finest ingredients have led to this amazing evolution in longboarding. With symmetrical shape and stance for a balanced center of gravity, as well as the ability to weigh and un-weigh the deck through turns for control and efficient energy generation, these performance downhill boards will change the way you experience topography. Made in USA!

Flex Choices: The Vanguard is currently available in four flexes. Check out the flex drop menu above to determine the most appropriate board for your stance weight and style.

  1. Flex 1: 42” 175-230+ lbs.
  2. Flex 2: 42” 150-210 lbs.
  3. Flex 3: 38” 150-200 lbs.
  4. Flex 4: 38” 120-170 lbs.

Keep in mind that a softer flex pattern will give you more control and tighter turns at a wide range of speeds, but tend to lose stability slightly at higher speeds. Stiffer flex means more energy potential and more stability at higher speeds, but will not be as forgiving and lively when cruising.
