Wheelbase (Inner Hole): 32.75" / 83.19 cm
Weight: deck only: 5.6 - 6.3 lbs / 2.5 - 2.9 kg

Flex 1: 150-250+ lbs

Flex 2 is what Adam S. (150 lbs) and Adam C. (160 lbs) ride.
The Adam’s prefer a board with a bit of flex to it (feels a lot better for freestyle). You can still take the flex 2 plenty fast and do slides comfortably, thanks to the rocker and concave. Flex 1 is definitely stiffer, and if you are 160 lbs it will flex only slightly under you. If you like stiffer boards and plan on doing hard pounding tricks with this board or weigh more (over 190 lbs), this is your board.
We recommend 180mm reverse-kingpin trucks: Paris, Randal, Bears, etc. Paris with standard bushings offer the most wheel clearance and best fit with the wheel wells. If you choose Randals or Bears, we recommend the use of a riser pad to ensure full wheel clearance.
Wheels: This board is designed to ride with 70mm or smaller wheels. 75mm wheels are too big and require risers to avoid the risk of wheel bite. Plus, 70mm is the perfect, lightweight size to throw around, do tricks on, and slide.
Adam Stokowski, Dane Webber and Adam Colton like this board set up with 86a Stimulus wheel for sliding and shuvit spin moves. The 86a is a good all round wheel for their style and provides extra leeway: when landing a shuvit wrong, the wheels will slide the extra bit around instead of gripping and bucking you off. A softer wheel will be more comfortable for cruising long distances, cross-stepping, manuals and such.
Additional Setup: Play around with kingpin tightness to adjust the looseness of the trucks. There are a lot of new bushings coming to market and they can make a huge difference in the ride. If you find yourself getting wheel bite, add a riser pad, or run slightly smaller wheels. Go out and experiment.
