The Globe Big Blazer is a simple but all around stylish old-school cruiser for maximum fun on the board. The deck is made of 7-ply maple and provides a great ride comfort. The used tensor alloy trucks and the soft wheels provide an authentic 70s feeling - but at the current state of the art in skateboard manufacturing.
With this complete board, riding fun and style come first. Whether as a casual cruiser, a means of transport independent of traffic jams or for a few runs in the skater park - the board will take you further on any terrain.
The typical old-school shape with short, pointed nose and practical kicktail still looks cool even after decades. The soft concave keeps you securely on your board. The cut-outs on the deck under each wheel prevent unpleasant wheelbites and particularly sharp curves are no problem either. The size of the deck is particularly noteworthy. With a width of 9.125'' it is much larger than the small, compact Standard Blazer Cruiser by Globe. The advantage is a particularly safe position on the deck while keeping the better balance and you can also maintain a safe ride even at higher speeds.
Decks with Resin 7 construction are glued with epoxy instead of conventional water-based glue. This results in a lower weight and a better, longer lasting pop. The deck comes in a proven 7-ply maple wood construction.
Globe focuses on quality in the choice of individual components. With longboards Reverse Kingpin trucks are normally used, but Globe uses traditional and proven Kingpin trucks with the Big Blazer Cruiser and that means skateboard trucks where the bushings don't point inwards. The Tensor Alloy trucks are dimensioned so that the 62 mm wheels are perfectly matched to the board. With a hardness level of 83A, the wheels are the optimal compromise for speed and grip. And thanks to the wider tread of the wheels, you can sweep over pebbles and small knots.
The bushings offer stability at high speeds and have been specially selected to fit any skate style, from downhill to cruising, from carving to street skating. The Globe Abec-7 ball bearings rotate faster and longer, which means you need less power and are faster at full speed.
Note: Wheel and truck colours may vary due to stock shortage
What started out as a skateboard import business in Melbourne in the late '70s is now one of the biggest players on the skateboard market. Known for their "true to the roots" skate shoes, Globe have taken generations of skaters to heart and progressed alongside with them. With a longstanding tradition of supporting actions such as Go Skateboarding Day and helping to improve the quality of skate parks in Australia, Globe are as dedicated as they are hungry.
