People kept asking us to bring the carbon Trip back, and so we did. The Trip is a fantastic double drop commuter longboard for both beginners and experts alike. It’s compact, stable, and lively with an exceptionally nimble wheelbase for a double drop longboard. You’ll have just enough room for your feet, a little added space on either end to make space for large wheels, and that’s it! It’s utilitarian and efficient, and riders all over have loved the Trip since we first dropped it back in 2015. Since then, it has gone through several update, mold and shape reiterations, and graphic changes. In 2023, this board is as good as it’s ever been.
These carbon Trips will be made in limited runs and have largely been available only in overseas shops up to this point. We only have a few here, so get them now or you may have to wait for quite some time!
Our favorite complete consists of 150mm Paris 150mm trucks in the 50/43 configuration. This puts a high degree turning truck in front, and a slightly lower degree in back for increased stability. This is ideal if you’re going to be riding your Trip fast and especially on hills. For lower speeds and a smaller turning radius, choose the 50/50 options. Finally, while we prefer the tight fit of a 150mm truck, we are also offering 165mm trucks for riders who have zero tolerance for wheelbite. With the 150mm configuration, riders MAY be able to force wheelbite, depending on bushing choice, riding style, and rider weight. We certainly don’t want anyone getting hurt, but if you’re willing to finagle with your setup a bit and make sure it’s dialed for your needs, we believe the slimmer setup to be superior. Riders will significantly reduce their chances of kicking wheels on accident, and the slimmer setup allows you to land your push foot closer to your center of gravity. This is both more powerful (faster) and more efficient. On the other hand, you’ll definitely want a 165mm truck if you’re riding wider wheels like Orangatang Caguamas, for example. With Speed Vents offered here, the fit is just about perfect with 150mm.
