The Globe Tracer Classic is a super stylish old school cruiser which offers you tonnes of fun on the streets! The deck is made from seven layers of maple and provides you with a super comfortable ride. With its soft wheels and the high-quality Slant trucks, this cruiser beams you back into the seventies but comes with the latest and best technological skate features.
With this complete board, fun and style come first. Whether as a casual cruiser or traffic-independent transportation, this board takes you on any terrain.
The typical old school shape with short, pointed nose and practical kicktail still looks cool. The gentle concave gives you stability. The cutouts on the deck under each wheel prevent unpleasant wheelbites and sharp turns are no problem. Particularly noteworthy is the size of the deck. With a width of 8,25'', it is a bit bigger than the small, compact cruisers by Globe. The advantage of this is a particularly safe stand on the deck, your balance can be kept more easily even at high speeds, you keep a safe board feeling.
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 pop. The Deck is characterised by the tried and tested construction of 7 layers of maple wood.
When it comes to the setup, you can also rely on good quality. Usually, in longboarding reverse kingpin trucks are used for the boards. Globe took a different approach with the Tracer and equipped traditional kingpin trucks, with the bushings facing inwards. the Slant Trucks 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.
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
