The Pintail Bamboo is a classic longboard with a surf-inspired shape, perfect for smooth carving and cruising. Price and performance, as always with Globe, is excellent.
With this complete board, fun and style come first. Whether cruising through the city or as traffic-independent transportation, this board performs on any terrain.
This shape is a classic. The short nose and the pointed tail are as eye-catching as timeless. The elegantly curved shape of the deck is more reminiscent of a surfboard than conventional standard skateboards.
The deck has a lightweight, very robust bamboo and maple construction. Decks with Resin 7 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 flex.
The slant reverse kingpin trucks are agile and very stable. The soft wheels provide a very good grip and roll particularly smooth over any surface. 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!
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!
