Completes are set up with Paris V3 180mm 50°trucks, Oragnatang 65mm 86a Fat Free Wheels, Loaded Jehu 2 bearings, Loaded Button head hardware (1.25"), and comes set up on the 31.25" wheelbase.
This dutiful deck features rocker, mild concave, symmetrical shape, well proportioned kicktails, grab rails, and an ergonomically optimized yet elegant griptape to keep your footwork flowing and controlled. Before pressing the wheel wells are pre-milled into the core to allow for extra wheel clearance while keeping the decks strength and finish.
Made from bamboo and basalt to keep the deck light, lively, and durable. The vibration damping cork was moved to the bottom layer, while a tougher bamboo top veneer took its place to keep that surface primed to bust those dance moves. Another layer of basal reinforcement in the nose and tail was added for more pop and wear resistance.
Flex 1 uses a thicker bamboo top layer for extra stiffness, while the lighter and more lively Flex 2 lets you dig deep into those carves. Both flexes have the updated wheelbase options for additional riding preferences.
The Tarab II uses a bio-based epoxy made by Entropy Resins. These dudes use bio-based materials from industrial waste streams like tree sap to take the place of petroleum content and minimize the carbon footprint of epoxy manufacturing. Let's face it, the longer the planet sticks around the more skating we get to do.
The original Tarab graphic was a collaboration with artist Will Scoobie and Lofti Lamaali. For the Tarab II they took the graphic to the next level while digging in deeper to Lotfi's Moroccan cultural background.
