It is not perfect for sliding but i totally recommend getting 86a stimulus whells and sum 80a riptide double cones ride paris!
Loaded for life man!
Ps its siiick for even carving ud be surprised how good it turns
although, the price is a bit steep and the durability is mediocre. It razor tails VERY easy, and gets dented and chipped quite easy aswel.
If you have the cash, I would say pick something else. Its a cool deck, but the price is just too high for a deck of this quality.
-Cruising is a breeze (Good bearings and decent sized wheels (I use 72.5 Baluts and 70 mm Stimulus)
-Durable Durable Durable; puts my Switch to shame
-Great for Dancing and doing tricks
-Like most Loaded boards, there's flex in the board so it's not optimal for downhill per-say.
-Sliding can be harder than normal
-Weight of board (So many materials put into board to make it's longevity last so sacrifices were made)
-Height off ground can cause strain on pushing legs (weight also contributes to this).
I'm not letting the cons outweigh the pros in an even face off so it keeps the 5 star ranking. REMEMBER: Creating some variations with this board will help it do things like slide and downhill; just come up with some.
Bottom line- Awesome board. Spend the money. You'll love it and yourself for getting it.
Overall this board is loads of fun! Good luck :)
overall, great board. this is my goto board. and word of advice...
it is bigger than what it looks like in pictures or videos.
