The Loaded Tan Tien features a new engineered wood bottom veneer and a new grip design, compared to the previous model of the Tan Tien. The Loaded Tan Tien, blends carve-oriented longboarding with advanced trick riding. A flexible deck, drop-through truck mounts and usable kicks allows the Tan Tien to pack a lot into a relatively small package.
The complex contours create a super responsive board that allows for increased confidence when leaning into turns, popping tricks, and powering through slides. Lines are fluid. Directions are malleable.
Coming pre-gripped with an aggressive black griptape designed to provide enhanced traction and control for sliding, pumping, and freestyle tricks. The functional, orbiting griptape pattern allows the board to flex naturally without compromising traction.
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 hard pounding thrashers alike.
Please note: The V2 version comes with matte black Paris V3 trucks, and your choice of 77a/80a/86a duro Orangatang Fat Free wheels.
