I am looking for a decks that are wedged/dewedged like the Subsonic Century 40 and the Landyachtz Evo 40 Falcon in the EU that cost less that £150. Does such a thing exist?
As far as I can see these are the only two options available but they are super expensive. Does anyone know of a cheaper deck that fits the description available in the EU or with reasonable shipping prices?
TL;DR: Split angles offer more stability at high speeds i.e. less speed wobbles. Angled trucks are expensive, angled risers are a bit flimsy (I still get wobbles at around 55km/h). So split angled decks are a good solution.
Dewedging the rear gives high speed stability, wedging the front gives you maneuverability. By integrating this into the deck rather than using wedge blocks mean you stay lower, again improving stability.
DH boards also generally work very well for esk8 applications.
The other problem with that is that your truck’s hanger might start hitting the deck as you turn. I had to cut out a bit of my deck when I did that (Being so low to the ground was really nice, although I did hit every curb or stone lol)
Heh, I’ve been riding it to work every day (5-9 miles each way) for the last 2 months like that. I did put a new pivot cup in, still working myself up to a bushing upgrade. I’ve got the kingpin pretty tight, but still loose enough for some close quarter maneuvers.
Crazy that you’re having unwanted “wiggle”. Mine are rock solid up to the boards max speed (27mph), the stock rear TB218 plate resulted in mad speed wobbles over 22mph.
