The 8” Banger Complete can be used by beginners to start their skateboard life but it’s definitely no beginner only board. With premium components like Impact Support technology, Tensor magnesium and premium urethane wheels, this board suits the needs of more experienced riders as well.
The Globe 8” Banger complete features a narrow width, ideal for street/park skateboarding and smaller riders. The Canadian Hard Rock maple deck is made up of seven layers, this provides you with a robust deck that can withstand hard impacts. Impact support technology provides impact carbon fiber laminate discs that disperse impact shock from the truck mounting points which makes decks stronger, pop harder, and last longer. The full concave can be used for all aspects of skateboarding, great if you don’t yet know how much concave you prefer, or if you just like a medium concave deck.
The Tensor magnesium Trucks are lighter and stronger than normal trucks. On top of that they have a perfect width and height for the deck and wheels of this complete, so you won’t have to worry about wheel bite or instability.
Globe’s premium wheels feature high-rebound urethane formulas that are abrasion resistant, smoother, faster, and provide excellent grip. The smaller than average wheels provide you with fast acceleration and stabile landings, perfect for street and park. The 101a material provides slighly less grip and more speed, perfect characteristics for sliding and grinding.
Globe Abec-7 bearings spin fast and are durable, which means less effort and getting up to full-speed fast even after using them for a decent amount of time
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!
