Product Description

Loaded Tan Tien 2016 Bamboo Longboard

Specs:

Length: 39" / 99cm Width: 8.75" / 22.25cm Wheelbase (Inner Hole): 27" / 77cm Weight: deck only: 3.1 - 3.5lbs / 1.4-1.6kg complete: 6.6 - 7lbs / 3 - 3.2kg

Flex 1: Up to 270 lbs Flex 2: 130-210+ lbs Flex 3: 80-170+ lbs

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 better longevity through abusive tricks and aerial landings, but will not be as forgiving and lively when cruising. The Flex 1 is considerably stiffer so as to be appropriate for heavier riders and hardpounding thrashers alike.

Loaded Tan Tien 2017 Bamboo Longboard

Specs:

Length: 39" / 99cm Width: 8.75" / 22.25cm Wheelbase (Inner Hole): 27" / 68.5cm Weight: deck only: 3.1 - 3.5lbs / 1.4-1.6kg complete: 6.6 - 7lbs / 3 - 3.2kg

Flex 1: Up to 270 lbs Flex 2: 130-210+ lbs Flex 3: 80-170+ lbs

The Tan Tien blends carve-oriented longboarding with advanced trick riding. A flexible deck, drop-through truck mounts and usable kicks allows the Tan Tien to pack a lot into a relatively small package. The complex contours create a super responsive board that allows for increased confidence when leaning into turns, popping tricks, and powering through slides. Lines are fluid. Directions are malleable.

The updated grip design and bottom veneer (Dec. 2016) reference the history of the Tan Tien and its conceptual underpinnings. Itíll also make your home smell of many leather bound books.
