Description

Leave it to Prism Skate Co. to conjure up the most innovative downhill skateboard design for 2019! The Prism "Hindsight" is undoubtedly a much-anticipated skateboard for Downhill and Fast Freeride. The Team over at Prism Skate Co. nailed the specs on this one. The deck measures 36 inches in length. The tapering rocker platform, at its widest point, measures 9.75 inches across. For optimal foot placement, a noticeably comfortable "W" concave runs down the center of the deck. The tail has a 3.5" kicktail for maneuverability, and the nose a has a 2.5" kick for those talented types! The Prism Hindsight is a top-mounted, and underneath you will find a .25" flush-mounts and a 24" wheelbase for your reverse kingpin trucks. The ultimate skateboard would not be complete without functional wheel flares. There is no doubt that your first run down the hill will be unforgettable. So what are you waiting for, "Time Waits for No One."

For the ideal fast freeride setup, try Caliber 44 Reverse Kingpin trucks and 70mm Morgans Pro Model wheels equipped with Zealous Downhill Bearings.

If you want to try a Downhill setup, try a split degree 44 rear/50 front truck. Just make a note in the comments at checkout, and we will adjust the setup fo you! Blood Orange Alpine wheels are a predictable downhill wheel with plenty of grip! There are many wheels to choose from for downhill. Please visit out downhill guide for more details!

Prism's Description

Made to be our most versatile board in the line-up, the Hindsight is built compact with a functional kick-tail and mellow features making it perfect for tight urban maneuvering and free-riding. Big wheel flares, mild w, and rocker work together to create pockets that lock your feet in but don't get in the way when doing tricks. Built with 6 plies of maple and 2 layers of fiberglass this board is lightweight but stiff enough to be stable on high-speed mountain roads.

Incredibly stable , near-perfect freeride deck
on 2020-07-25 Verified Purchase
I freeride/dh and grabbed this as a deck w/ a bit more length ( my main is a 35" topmount ) and I honestly did not expect such a hefty slab of beautifully concaved W'ed wood and fiberglass plies to be as nimble & controllable at high speed as this turned out to be. Im 160lb, 5'10" and it's as though the WB and width is tailored for me. I run 180mm Arsenal cast 44° trucks . I presently am running Seismic 68mm Tantrum 79a wheel = the thing almost slides where I think it's so easily effortless and balanced. A fantastic longboard.
Super fun quiver killer

I love this board, it’s got mellow concave but is enough that I’ve never worried about not being locked in enough! Good functional kick tail and all around fun board for any kind of riding!

The Hindsight is markedly light for its size, and the fiberglass being insulated with wood plies has kept the deck looking and feeling good in my hands even after six months of flips and curbings. The concave is supremely comfortable, and despite the compact wheelbase, the standing platform feels expansive. Unlike many other downhill decks that I've ridden, the tops of the mounts on the Hindsight are flush with the platform and blend in seamlessly. The tail, instead of coming up at an angle, is a further extension of the platform, pushing the standing room out all the way from nose to tail. This cruiseresque platform is the most notable feature of this deck, and I think this point is undersold. It's so dope. I mean, there's definitely a loss of leverage relative to a board with a more steeply angled kicktail, but the added versatility and comfort of the long, rockered platform is a completely worthwhile trade-off. Having the freedom to position my feet however, wherever, is valuable to me as a rider. Speaking of which, the concave up front is super gentle, and combined with the microdropped flush mounts it's actually feasible to cruise comfortably on this deck. It's pretty low, for a topmount. The W-concave that runs down the middle of the board is mellow, but very functional—especially when re-gripped with your favorite coarse griptape. I like Lokton, personally. Speaking of favorites: It's important to note that this deck seems designed for use with Caliber RKPs, but I've gotten the most fun out of it on 46 degree Aera RF-1s and 69mm Powell-Peralta Snakes. As a heavier rider, I have found that bringing in the trucks as close as possible feels the most solid, and at an effective 23" WB the deck feels nimble enough to cruise but still solid enough to handle hills. I'm happy to say that it's my go-to board at the moment and is proving to be a true quiver-killer.
Comfy and versatile

Lots of good things about this board. Love that it has a kicktail. You can still shred high speed with it if you want though-concave works great and locks you in nicely. The rocker lets you know exactly where your feet are without you having to look down. If I had it my way it would be like 1-2 inches shorter but that’s just me. Good board for a good price, can’t go wrong.
Only board you’ll need!

I’ve been swapping between two boards, landyachtz Charlie horse and a prism theory v2, for a few months now because I love the wheel flares on the Prism but I like having a little bit of a kick tail for some tricks and freestyle. This deck gives me the best of both!! It has nice wheel flares and a slight rocker to keep your feet locked in, not to mention the wider width which holds my large size 12 feet perfectly. Plus a nice kick tail for a little pop! This is just the best all around deck I’ve had so far. Not to mention the super clean graphic :)
