The Powell Peralta Kevin Reimer Samurai model longboard is a pure pred race and freeride style deck that was designed by the man himself after becoming a 3 time world downhill champion in 2009 2010 and 2014. The Samuri’s mission is to not only be the fastest but also the easiest to ride downhill board available today. It boasts a 3/8” drop that will hold you in place for drifts, slides and freeriding. The concave is a flat top which is intended to be subtle enough to not affect pushing but provide a great hold on your foot for toeside corners and slides.
Powell Peralta longboards are a beauty not only to be marveled at but also enjoyed thoroughly. They are crafted using an industry leading extra light weight laminated core of of selected woods as well as multi axial fiberglass, and carbon fiber reinforcement. You will notice right away when you look at these premium decks that something is different about the tips. Those are the highly durable urethane bumpers. They are designed to protect against impacts, resulting in a longer lasting longboard.
This amazing technology is exclusive to Powell Peralta and is manufactured in the United States in the skate one factory under the watchful eyes of George Powell. They claim this Santa Barbra produced deck, is more light weight and durable than any other board available.
Its amazing how stiff these boards are torsionally given how light and thin they are. The ultra light weight gives the boards an added edge for quicker starts and faster response. The deck’s shape provides clearence for 75mm+ race wheels to be ridden without wheel bite.
