Loaded Vanguard Flex 4 Longboard Complete - $311.00

The one that started it all. Symmetrical shape and stance for a balanced center of gravity to increase the ability to weight the deck through turns for better control and energy generation. The sidecuts allow for decreased torsional stiffness between the feet to exploit the board's torsional energy to allow for greater nuances in the turning radius. The Vanguard was designed and intended for speeds between 0 and 25 mph (0-40km/hr). You can take the board faster with skill and experience, but it is not intended for higher speeds due to its flex characteristics.Flex 1: Up to 270 lbs // Flex 2: 130-210+ lbs // Flex 3: 80-170+ lbs Keep in mind that a softer flex pattern will give you more control and tighter turns at slower speeds and make it easier to slide, but tends to lose stability slightly at higher speeds. Stiffer flex means more energy potential, more stability at higher speeds, and better longevity through abusive tricks and aerial landings, but will not be as forgiving and lively when cruising. The Flex 1 is considerably stiffer so as to be appropriate for heavier riders and hardpounding thrashers alike.Key Features of the Loaded Vanguard Flex 4 Longboard Complete: Length: 42"/107cm & 38"/98cm Width: 8.5"/21.5cm Wheelbase: 35"/88.9cm & 31.5"/80cm Weight: deck only: 2.7 - 3.8lbs / 1.2 - 1.7kg complete: 6.9 - 8lbs / 3.1 - 3.6kg Epoxy and Tri-axle fiberglass sandwich a vert-lam Bamboo core, pressed into concave and convex cambers for liveliness, responsiveness and high energy potential. - $311.00
