LOADED - DERVISH LONGBOARD
Sustainable Bamboo Core
Loaded Longboards are now using Bamboo as their new core material for all their Loaded Longboards. They are stronger, lighter and more durable. Further, since Bamboo is a grass, it is a more renewable resource, growing 10 times faster than Oak. Bamboo continues growing after being cut - leading to less environmental damage due to new growth and associated forest fire hazards. All this allows a reduction in the toxicity in the production of the core.
With a lower center of gravity and a torsionally stiff design, the Dervishes are built to hold an edge and maximize energy return. A drop-thru carver designed to work with most reverse kingpin geometry trucks and 70mm+ wheels. The dropthru design allows for easier pushing, more stability at speed, and easier sliding. It has a small flat nose and tail for manual and shovit tricks.
The Dervish was designed and intended for speeds between 0 and 30 mph (0-50km/hr). You can take the board faster with skill and experience, but it is not intended for higher speeds due to its flex characteristics
- Length: 41.5"/ 105cm
- Width: 8.75"/ 22cm
- Wheelbase: 33"/ 84cm
- Weight Deck Only: 1.55-1.65kg
- Weight Complete: 3.4-3.5kg
- Construction: Epoxy and Tri-axle fiberglass sandwich a vert-lam Bamboo core, pressed into concave and convex cambers for liveliness, responsiveness and high energy potential. DropThru cutouts are CNC milled for precision
Currently Available in two flexes:
Flex 1: 170-230+lbs / 77-105+kg
Flex 2: 100-185+lbs / 45-85+kg
Keep in mind that a softer flex pattern will give you more control and tighter turns at slower speeds and make it easier to slide, but tends to lose stability slightly at higher speeds. Stiffer flex means more energy potential, more stability at higher speeds, and makes air moves easier, but will not be as forgiving and lively when cruising.
Note: It is natural for the boards to break in and become slightly flexier over time.
