I’m looking for a mini-ish sized deck for custom eskate.
I want something in the 30-34in length range, no kicktail. Something around 20-24in wheelbase would be awesome. Good flex like a bamboo board would be great.
I have a Loaded truncated tesseract and it’s awesome, pretty ideal, but a bit pricey to get another one of those.
I have a Meepo Mini 2, it’s a little shorter than ideal, the wheelbase is short and I don’t like the kicktail. Also Have an Evolve GTR but it’s huge to be carrying around of course.
I plan on putting some DKP trucks and elofty DD setup.
Also, if anyone knows where to get a good set of DKP for the elofty, let me know!
What price range are you looking for? I’m assuming significantly under $200 since you say the Loaded is pricey and seem to be looking for something cheaper. A few random options I do not have much experience with are:
Most of the stuff I’m finding with no kicktale is a bit longer at like 36" though because that seems pretty standard for downhill stuff. There is a lot more stuff approaching $200 like the Zenit Mini Rocket. That is getting back towards the price of the loaded which seems like a very good deck though.
I know you said no kicktail but I ended up really liking this board I built for my brother. Moonshine sidekick and an eBoosted enclosure. Packed a 12s3P of samsung 40T cells into that bad boy…and DKP trucks believe it or not, but theyr’e tight with some hard bushings. Didn’t get to do too much testing but really enjoyed the ride and feel.
Big true. I got a message it was in stock and it wasn’t a day later. I just said budget cause I slapped a drivetrain with thousands of miles on it instead of buying new. Def not a low budget small-deck build.
Ya that was the only configuration I could make work and have room for everything else. It was pretty snug after the pack was built so I just wrapped it in kapton tape instead of shrink wrap. I got the 40Ts because they were on a great sale. I was also building a 14s8p so I needed those savings. Did you just minimally wrap your p groups/pack to make it fit or did it just work? I saw you used p42a and was a bit curious.
I actually got the deck for 189 with tax and shipping so not too bad for the high quality. Im surprised it took them so long to up the price.
