Loaded Kanthaka ¬£150.00      
Like its namesake from Buddhist legend, the Kanthaka is an agile, muscular, and loyal steed for any rider seeking a swift and exciting journey to double-kick freeride enlightenment. Blurring the lines between street skating and freeriding, the Kanthaka builds off contemporary skate design and brings rocker, functional and ergonomic wheel wells, and composite construction to create something innovative, versatile and unique.



ROCKER

The Kanthaka features a gently rockered platform (enough to create a comfortable cradling interface for sliding but not so much as to disrupt the mechanics of ollies and other tricks) that transitions smoothly into the kicks. Rocker also slightly lowers your center of gravity for enhanced stability.

INTEGRATED WHEEL WELLS/FLARES

Pronounced wheel wells flare above the top surface of the deck, increasing wheel clearance while also creating an ergonomic transition that provides lateral support and extra leverage in critical areas for your feet.

To prevent these concave ďhot spotsĒ from hindering certain tricks, we maintained the flare amplitude necessary to provide the wheel clearance and ergonomics we wanted but squeezed the blending transitions away from the center of the deck. The result is maximized real estate in the central standing platform, lateral support inside the bolts, tight pockets between the flares and the kicks, and excellent wheel clearance.

CONCAVE

The Kanthaka is designed with an elliptical concave profile. The concave near the centerline of the board is very shallow (but not completely flat) to minimize accidental flipping input on ollies. It ramps up gently near the rails to provide comfortable security and board awareness.

SYMMETRICAL SHAPE

To encourage switch riding and shuvit style tricks, the Kanthaka features a completely symmetrical profile from tip to tip.

NOSE & TAIL KICKS

The kicktails on the Kanthaka are designed to provide excellent leverage for slides and maneuverability. They extend from the standing platform at a relatively shallow angle to generate a quick and well balanced pop for the Kanthakaís geometric combination of length, rocker, and wheelbase.

The nose and tail share the same profile shape, but the nose is slightly steeper than the tail, allowing for a more concave pocket for leveling out ollies or a nominally higher contact angle for popping tricks or bluntslides.

FLEX

Solid for speed and crisp for pop, the Kanthakaís bamboo and fiberglass construction is stiff without feeling overbuilt. We designed the board with a very minute amount of longitudinal flex: just enough to soak up some road vibration and help keep the ride smooth.
