The Ember is tiny. Any skater who can skate a street deck will be very familiar with the stance. There’s plenty of space you need, and nothing extra. Eight plies of Canadian maple hold this sucker together, and for 2018, we have chosen to laminate the deck using epoxy! This should help increase weather resistance and the longevity of your deck. It also comes gripped with laser cut griptape. We are super stoked with how this came out!
We’ve dropped the platform low with a 3/4-inch crescent drop and 1/4 of rocker between the drops. It is the perfect commuter. Easy to push, easy to footbrake, easy to slide, nimble, lightweight, supports huge wheels and thin trucks, which keeps you from kicking the wheels and smashing your face. Though the deck is small, it is nearly ALL platform. Because the deck is specifically designed around street trucks, you get to stand next to the wheels, where you have the most control and leverage. No other commuter board is made this way.
The Ember sets up as a complete that is reasonably priced and extremely purposed. It’s not just a longboard because longboards are cool, or because we thought we could sell you on “cool,” ya kook! It’s a longboard meant to take you where you want to go, whether you’re a beginning skater, an old former skate rat looking to get back on a board, or an experienced veteran looking to cover a hundred miles at a time. It just makes sense.
