The Icarus is more than just a regular carver longboard. It's a drop through flexy board with a unique shape. It's made for pumping and carving. It's made for more than just regular riding. It's made for asphalt flying.
The Icarus Complete Longboard comes with high-quality Orangatang Nipple bushings, Orangatang InHeat wheels and high-end Paris trucks (180 mm). This combination raises it to the gold standard of carving longboards.
Loaded pioneered the flexible drop thru board with the Dervish in 2007 and the Tan Tien in 2010. They’ve returned to their carving roots using many of the things learned over the past few years from their freeride boards, downhill boards, and their snowboard (with design cues from bacon). Combining wheel flares, cork, a balanced flex pattern and novel manufacturing methods, the Icarus is a milestone in their exploration of the soulful carving experience.
Vertically laminated bamboo and fibreglass construction pair with a cambered profile and a variable concave for a lively and engaging ride. The cork bottom helps dampen out vibrations without compromising the liveliness.
Drop-through truck mounting positions the deck lower to the ground for easier, more efficient pushing and enhanced stability. Light weight and compact size make the Icarus intuitive and commuter friendly.
The right curves in the right places enhance rider ergonomics while contributing to a responsive and high-performance ride. Wheel well flares accommodate big wheels and improve turning leverage and control. Variable concave yields a consistent flex pattern while providing a variety of riding experiences based on foot placement.
Minimal nose and tail kicks help navigate city streets and open the door for freestyle trickery.
Note: Wheel and truck colours may vary due to stock shortage!
