So, whenever my daughter complains about us living on the streets, I just show her this sexy board.
Can't be any happier 5/5 has it all around and remember you never know what you're going to run in to but as long as you're riding chubby it does not matter you're set that's all I have to say
BTW....better than loaded tesseract
Ronin trucks 400$$
abec 11 83mm centrax 90$$
bones swiss ceramics 110$$
Thats 960$$ for a downhill setup
I will not spend almost a grand on a downhill board. The urethane sidewall creates a rounded edge, meaning you cant get good leverage for toeside slides. The kicktails are only 4 inches, the site says its 7 inches, but that is too the inner whole. that makes no sense. Loaded completely takes advantage of the name brand by raising the price and giving false info.
But obviously it was the boards fault because I fell and bailed but I didn't do anything wrong. But whatever chubby unicorn is for fags anyways.
Its amazing with the 3d wheel wells that lock your feet in and the SUPER PHAT W concave ends right where you put your foot to lock into the wheel wells so that makes it super tight and fits the W right in to the arch of your foot pushing your feet even more into those wheel wells and al;ksdjfl;asdjkf;laksjdf;laskdjfasf its perfect.
No complies are awesome.
nice wide kicks are great for poppin some ollies and there is slight concave in the kicks which makes your pop shove its so effortless and great.
The W flattens out in the middle so you can do manuals and whatnot easier and more comfortably
the reason i like this board is because i am used to riding a 50inch board so this is even easier to slide with (obviously) and it has a nice wide and long standing platform which is just perfect. I cant find anything else i did or didnt like about it lol. a second wheelbase option would have been kool but its still an awesome wheelbase at that!
I would recomend this board to anyone who likes fast free ride and it is absolutely worth the money
I bought the board so this is actually based on experience rather than assumption
This board is untouchable... a lot of people think the materials on the chubby are only for durability, but they really dampen vibrations. It makes hills that were a challenge feel easy, letting you enjoy the speed and scenery rather than the wobbles and in turn letting you hit bigger hills. The rocker is nice as it is slightly steeper at the edges, allowing you to quickly realize bad foot placement and correct it. A common argument I heard against this board was the w concave being worthless as "they couldn't tell it was there on the picture". The w concave is subtle, but wide, so it actually fits the contour of your foot. It actually locks you in really nice AND feels comfortable.
The problem with freestyle is learning it, which means a beat up board. The durability is good because the board won't crack or chip, but it also will look fresh too. I have drug my tail across asphalt SL many times, and all you do is wipe it off with your hand and keep riding... no scratches... and the main thing I was worried about was the thane scuffing, but the sidewalls are pretty durable and have limited wear. the w concave doesnt interfere with foot placement for tricks either. My complaint in this section is that they should have angled the kicks ever so slightly more to help kick the board up a bit.
A section this board is not prized for is carving. However that does not mean it is a bad carver, it actually does very well. The wheel well and flare combo keeps you from getting wheel bite and the materials filter out surface imperfections. Since the w concave is wide it actually helps you stay locked without making it uncomfortable and the rocker also keeps you stuck to the board even in aggressive carves. even though it is not flexy, the chubby feels really lively with carving
I havent done much sliding yet so i cant really give an opinion
This is I feel the weakest section for the board. However it still has solid performance... it will take getting used to the w concave. It is wide enough to set your foot vertically on, however it is easy to misalign and I often find myself replacing my foot.
Uhh... I haven't tried it... but I don't think it will work
If you have big enough ramps and good spacing its possible... I have seen YouTube videos of long boards in parks... however they were pretty flexy, making me wonder how landing this from a huge height would feel... these last to sections were mostly for kicks
Now that ive done a noard review... i will review my setup and put overall pro and cons
Bear 852 (with harder bushings than stock)
Orangatang baluts 80a
Zealous bearings (will be replaced with better bearings)
Price, lets be honest, i spent almost five hundred bucks with crap bearings. That is really steep. Honestly its the best choice ive ever made, but the only reason i bought this board was becuase I had money set aside ro upgrade my subwoofers. After they were stolen, I decided to combine the fund with my board fund to get this. I would do it again if I had the choice again, but that still doesn't mean that I'm happy with the price
This board can do everything better than most specific boards... it doesnt seem like a big deal when you have a quiver, but I like riding my board everywhere around town, meaning I can't carry my quiver. I can commute on just my long board without any limits on ride styles. I can hit the big hill outside my house, carve through the neighborhoods, and freestyle the parking lots. I have even pumped it like a surfboard with proper foot placement
The biggest thing that makes this board so worth it is the ride. It feels like a sin riding it, like its just too much pleasure to be legal. I think I really hit the sweet spot of the deck with this setup. There is no way to truly no how nice it is without trying it
Plus its durable, so you might pay an arm and a leg, but this board will be able to be passed down to your grandchildren after your gone...
Think of it as an investment
Overall its a five star (or more) board with a hefty tag
I would suggest it if you have a lot of space to ride locally and you want to get as much out of your ride as possible
Worth ever penny. Amazing board with the right set up
Playful and very stable. Highly recommended!

It may be expensive but it is lightweight like a dervish but stable like a switchblade and wery slidey it feels smooth compared to a maple deck .
Overall if you have the money GET THIS BOARD!!!
