Crafted for Carving

The Loaded Vanguard brings lightweight snowboard-inspired construction and performance to the pavement. Camber, sidecuts, and high-energy flex allow for responsive carving, pumping, and commuting.

Elegant Design

Tapered shape maximizes wheel clearance for deep carves and tight turns. Sidecuts reduce torsional stiffness between the feet for greater nuances in the turning radius. Mild concave provides edge-to-edge control, while the topmount and cambered platform provides energetic carving performance. Lightweight, snowboard-inspired bamboo and fiberglass construction pair with a cambered profile for a lively and engaging ride.

High-Performance Flex

Bamboo and fiberglass provide lively and energetic flex perfect for hard carving and pumping. Available in two sizes and five flex ratings to tailor the ride to your stance, weight, and style. Lower flex is ideal for heavier riders; higher flex is recommended for lighter riders or those looking for a more responsive board.

Paris 180mm, 50° V2 longboard trucks deliver smooth and controlled turning response that’s perfect for carving, pumping, and all-around riding.
