Flex Choices: The Vanguard is currently available in five flexes. Check out the flex drop menu above to determine the most appropriate board for your stance weight and style. Flex 1: 42 175-230+ lbs. Flex 2: 42 150-210 lbs. Flex 3: 38 150-200 lbs. Flex 4: 38 120-170 lbs. Flex 5: 38 80-140 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.

If you need a great all-around longboard that can take on a variety of situations, the Loaded Vanguard may be just what youre looking for. It is constructed from lightweight bamboo and quality fiberglass, and overall it is a flat board with a lot of flex. You can get this board in five different flexes, depending on your weight and preferences. A softer flex is good if youre looking for more control over your movement and tighter turns. However, a softer flex will not offer as much stability at higher speeds. A stiffer flex option gives you more energy potential and is a better choice for high speeds because it retains more stability. With all of the flex options we offer for the Loaded Vanguard, this choice could be a good one for a variety of boarding styles.

We offer a wide array of different wheels, trucks and bearings to go with this board. Whether this is your first longboard, or youve been boarding for years, we will have a great setup for you. So if you want a lightweight, high-quality and easy to customize option, the Loaded Vanguard could be the perfect board for you.
