Powell Peralta Kevin Reimer Carbon Samurai Longboard Skateboard Deck w/ Grip
The carbon version of Kevin Reimer's Samurai longboard deck is now available at Muirskate.com!
The Samurai is a top notch downhill/freeride longboard skateboard deck with everything you need. It is constructed with Tri-axial fiberglass, carbon fiber skins, a multi-species wooden core, and hard cast polyurethane bumpers.
The medium concave of the deck is more rounded than most. This contour allows more foot contact with your board. It has just enough W-Concave to give you that extra leverage you want for toeside slides.
The deck's symmetrical profile with wheel cutouts allows you to ride the board without compromising wheelbite.
The Radial Micro-Drops give you a natural footstop on the front and back for perfect reference points.
Set this longboard skateboard deck up with 180mm Caliber II Trucks and 69mm Powell Peralta Snake wheels for an amazing all-around ride!
Powell Peralta's Description
The Samurai is a pure bred race and freeride board developed by 2009, 2010, and 2014 Downhill World Champion Kevin Reimer. The goal of the Samurai is simple: to be the fastest and easiest to ride downhill board available today. The Samurai has a 3/8 inch drop that will hold you in place for sliding, drifting, or freeriding and also features a flat-topped W concave that is meant to be subtle enough to not effect pushing, but noticeable enough to hold your foot on toeside corners and slides.
Many of todays downhill and freeride boards have intense concave that hurts your feet and in fact hinders your skating, and the Samurai has the opposite of these extremes. The concave of the Samurai is more gentle and round than other concaves which allows for more foot contact with the board, meaning more grip, more control, and less feedback that can slow you down. The Samurai has been built with the least amount of material possible in order to keep the deck extremely light weight, and allow the use of large race wheels 75mm and above without wheel bite.
