The Globe Geminon EVO 38'' is a complete longboard with a symmetrical shape, perfect for freeriding and cruising. Price and performance, as always with Globe, is excellent.
The strength of this complete deck lies in its flexibility. Tricky freeride sessions and fast downhill descents are its specialities. Nevertheless, it works just as good as a casual cruiser or for transportation.
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 deck has a lightweight, very robust bamboo construction. The wood stringer along the centre of the board features a diamond pattern and the veneer is made of premium olive 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!
