The Flowboard Design Included Innovations in Trucks and Wheels
The Flowboard is designed using the DeepCarve system, which enables a 45 degree turn ability, like a surf/snowboard, rather than the standard 25 degrees on a skateboard, while remaining stable.
The Flowboard DeepCarve system combines the excitement of snowboarding and surfing--without snow or water! The innovative design enables the rider to carve turns with fluid transitions from edge to edge. Instead of regular skateboard wheels, the two curved axles are each lined with seven 68mm x 24mm x 90A abec 5 bearing in-line skate wheels. This allows the rider to carve to a 45 degree angle without resistance.
