The Loaded Tan Tien is probably one of the best all-round longboards on the market. The relatively small size is ideal for carving around town. However, it is still long and stable enough for freeriding and mellow downhill skating. The complex contours create a super responsive board that allows for increased confidence when leaning into turns and powering through slides.
A versatile freeride board for creative skaters. Whether for smooth cruising and carving around town or for downhill skating at higher speeds.
The symmetrical shape is perfect for skating in both directions, whether forward or switch. With drop-through truck mounting, the board sits a little lower than a top mount deck would. The low centre of gravity increases stability and smoothness. The camber profile and mild concave create a responsive yet comfortable platform for carve-oriented longboarding.
The trucks and wheels perfectly fit the board. The soft wheels provide excellent grip and speed, even on rough surfaces. The deck is made of bamboo, epoxy and fibreglass. Making it particularly lightweight and durable.
This Loaded Longboard comes in 3 different flex options. Keep in mind that a softer flex pattern will give you more control and tighter turns at slower speeds and make it easier to slide, but tends to lose stability slightly at higher speeds. A stiffer flex means more energy potential, more stability at higher speeds, and better longevity.
Note: Wheel and truck colours may vary due to stock shortage.
For the past 10 years, Loaded have provided the industry with high quality, hand-made bamboo longboards and snowboards.
