Loaded Longboards are the premier "flexible" carving longboards. Made in the USA. They are constructed much like a snowboard for a lively energetic flex. incorporating construction techniques like vertically laminated bamboo sandwiched between triaxial fiberglass makes them ride like nothing else. If you long for those deep snowboard carves after the snow has melted, this will satisfy that itch. Orangatang wheels are the logical progression of Loaded boards mission: building the best carving machines they can. What is carving without grip? it was obvious that for loaded boards to ride like they intended or dreamed of, they needed to control where the rubber met the road. Super high rebound and insane grip comes out of the carving wheels and a predictable slide is achieved from the freeride/sliding options.
