Fancy this skateboard?

We often have people asking what's the most expensive set up we have, so here it is. Have a guess how much it'll cost and save up if you want it!

Deck: You will get the Almost Uber Light. The internal carbon fiber foam deck is ultra light and nearly as stiff as metal. It acts like rebar embodied by a standard 7 ply, giving it a natural feel with supernatural performance. The deck wears, slides, and looks like a normal 7-ply but it's lighter and has a supernatural pop that lasts far longer than normal deck. Cost: $180.00

Trucks: Tensor Magnesium. These are the lightest trucks on the market at the moment. Each truck is about 273g, about 30% lighter than regular 5.0 trucks. Available in slider or response and also in 7 different designs. Cost: $100.00

Wheels: Element durathane wheels are guaranteed for life to never flatspot. The high grade urethane is superior to all others, making it stronger and more resistant to flatspotting. Cost: $75.00

Bearings: Modus Ceramics. I think that says it all. Cost: $140.00

Bolts: Add in some nice colour bolts for colour on your black grip and your deck is complete. Cost: $5.00

Total cost of complete skateboard: $500.00
