The origin of Globe lay in the desire for authentic skate products for the action sports market. The products are designed by active skaters and surfers who combine style, great performance and unique quality in their collections. With a width of 7.6'', this Complete Deck is rather narrow and therefore suitable for riders with smaller shoe sizes. But if you like a deck which is easy and effortless to flip, you can't go wrong either.
Decks with Resin 7 construction are glued with epoxy resin instead of conventional water-based glue. This results in a lighter weight and features a better and longer lasting pop.
This board is perfect for any terrain. You can skate it on the street as well as on your local skatepark, bowl or miniramp.
The deck has a modern shape which is preferred by most skaters nowadays. The nose is a bit longer than the tail and the concave keeps you comfortable on your board.
Deck, wheels, and trucks work perfectly together. The wheels work best on the smooth surface of your local concrete skatepark. The Slant trucks are super stable and lightweight. The bushings offer stability at high speeds and they’re chosen to appropriately fit styles from fast downhill lines to cruising, carving, and street skating. The Globe Abec-7 bearings spin faster and longer which means less effort and this enables getting up to full speed faster. The Deck is characterized by the tried and tested construction of 7 layers of maple wood.
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 expanded their selection to include skate hardware and apparel for both men and women. Keeping up with their heritage, Globe is still licensing and creating new proprietary brands every year; one of the reasons we are such big fans!
