Original Carbon Apex 40 AvRockerConcave Longboard Deck (Deck Only)
Original Carbon Apex 40 AvRockerConcave Longboard
Wheelbase: 27.5" or 29"
In the Apex 40 AvRockerConcave, our goal was to apply complete 360 degree concave support to your stance platform while maintaing lower speed performance to go with our new freeride focus. We based the development on the RockerConcave Freeride 41 concavestyle. Then we modified the board by moving the rocker away from the center of the board, which is now flat for 10 inches. We placed all of the rocker where you will feel it: on the foot placement section of your stance platform. While this does not modify the 3.5 degree wedging, it does increase your awareness, lock in, and feel of the deck (front to back) drastically. Enough, (we believe) to justify the separate AvRockerConcave name designation.
The AvRockerConcave enjoys a taller kicktail than the DoubleConcave and is much more agile on flats and small hills making it great for both freestyle and commuting.
The Devil is in the details. Here is how the Apex 40 AvRockerConcave stacks up.
