The Arbor Vugenhausen 2015 Longboard is a perfect setup for downhill and freeriding. The Vugenhausen is a completely symmetrical setup that is made complete with a micro-drop and some leverage inducing gas pedals.
This board is made with 9 plies of maple, runs 38" long and has a 9.5" width. The Wheelbase is adjustable between 30 and 31" making this board not only extremely stable but making those slides a lot more consistent and predictable. If you're looking for a quality longboard, Arbor is the brand for you.
