With the Stubby, Globe is launching an impressive cruiser with a classic Oldschool shape. You are looking for a practical means of transport for the city, would like to overcome curbs with a quick Ollie and from time to time also take a run in the bowl? Then you are perfectly advised with the Stubby.
With this complete board, fun and style come first. Whether as a casual cruiser, traffic-independent transportation, or a few runs in the skatepark, this board takes you on any terrain.
The typical old school shape with short, pointed nose, and practical kicktail still looks cool. The gentle concave offers you a secure stand. The cutouts on the deck under each wheel prevent unpleasant wheelbites and also particularly sharp turns are no problem. Particularly noteworthy is the size of the deck. With a width of 10'', it is a lot bigger than the small, compact Cruisers from Globe. The advantage of this is a particularly safe stand on the deck, the balance can be kept better and even at high speeds, you keep a safe board feeling.
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. The Deck is characterized by the tried and tested construction of 7 layers of teak and maple wood.
When it comes to the setup, you can also rely on good quality. The wide slant trucks in reverse kingpin design are agile and very stable. The soft wheels provide a very good grip and roll particularly smooth over any surface. 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.
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 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!
