A perfect transition to sliding, freeride and downhill, the Maven, top-mounted and dropped low into a 0.925” angled tub concave, is more than a creatively sleek, slim, sexy silhouette. Constructed of visibly hard angles with ultimate lock-in in mind, the Maven is also one of our most comfortable symmetrical freeride platforms ever; looks are deceiving. Incredibly light, short, sweet and to the point, the Maven has everything you need (down to the nose and tail flairs) and nothing you don’t. If you need a professional grade, race tested, drop-deck solution that is as ideal for pushing and commuting as it is for sliding, bombing and downhill, take a look at the Maven 35.

The Maven 35’s concave runs continuously along the full platofrm, unlike traditional dropped decks that stop the concave as it contacts the drop. This Maven concave bends both ways (and over backwards) to keep you locked in now matter what. So easy to sink into, but so incredibly hard to forget, the Maven is one of an elite few to ever create two such defined pockets (front and back). While the Maven is the furthest thing from a freestyle longboard (pure dropped speed) it also incorporates flairs; tip and tail, to allow for a curb drop here or a nollie shuvit there. That said, with all the stability in the world, and no reason to hold back your high speed riding, we hope the Maven 35 will be doing more toe-sides than shuvits and more switch toe-sides than tre-flips. Get out there, ride one, and let us know what you think.
