The Geminon Drop-Down 41'' is a part of Globe's Progressive Longboards series. This performance designed complete skateboard is engineered for long hauls and downhill jams. The Geminon Drop-Down is a symmetrical freeride board with drop-down trucks and drop-platform deck construction. These features give you more stability and balance on the deck while maintaining manoeuvrability for slides.
Freeride - Stylish moves in tight curves, this board is about creative riding. With freeride boards, you can slide through the curves, whether forward or switch.
The classic top-mount truck mounting offers a higher centre of gravity than the drop-through mounting. The lower stability of the construction provides better handling in fast turns. The symmetrical shape allows for riding in both directions, ideal for moves and slides where you end up switch. The drop-platform deck construction reduces the distance to the ground. This gives you more stability on the deck while maintaining manoeuvrability for slides.
Decks with Resin 9 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 9 layers of 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!
