The mini cruiser has been here for half an eternity. Even the most seasoned street skaters can take a break and switch to narrow trucks and large wheels when cruising to the next street spot. The wider and softer wheels provide better grip and protection against pebbles and stones. The Blazer Complete is a great example of a brilliant mini cruiser by Globe, as soon as you step on, you don't want to get off.
Sporty Cruiser for Fun Riding
The Blazer Mini Cruiser from globe is slightly shorter than a traditional cruiser. Due to the properties of the board, it is super easy to ride from A to B. The Blazer, inspired by the classic Globe Bantam is mobile and thanks to its kicktail, you can get over any obstacle. With the right technique, you can get over anything in your way. The mellow concave provides your feet with support and control. This cruiser is so good you don't want to leave the house without it.
Light and Stable Thanks to Wood and Epoxy
Globe continues its usual quality processes with the Blazer. The multiple wood construction is laminated with epoxy, rather than water-based resins. The epoxy makes the mini cruiser much lighter, more stable and more durable than other boards without it. Moreover, the epoxy and laminate construction give the board incredible pop. So much pop that you'll be able to ollie your cruiser over your friend's longer, less poppy longboards.
Traditional Trucks for Agility
Usually, in longboarding reverse kingpin trucks are used for the boards. Globe took a different approach with the Blazer and equipped traditional kingpin trucks, with the bushings facing inwards. the 4.25" Slant Trucks are narrow and have 62mm wheels attached, which are perfectly matched to the width of the board. The wheels have a hardness of 83a which is the perfect compromise between speed and grip for this sporty cruiser. The wide tread and the softness of the wheels also ensure that stones, branches, and small obstacles can simply just be ridden over.
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!
