Loaded Fat Tail Longboard Skateboard Deck w/ Grip
Although the lovely Loaded Pintail may be discontinued, it's spirit lives on in the form of the new Loaded Fat Tail Longboard Skateboard — Along with a few convenient modifications!
The Loaded Fat Tail Longboard Skateboard features a more aggressive concave to lock the riders feet to the board, a small nose for assisting the rider perform manuals and shove-its, and a generous tail to allow the rider to pop up and down curbs with ease.
The Loaded Fat Tail comes in three flex variations to help you select the most appropriate level for your body weight and preferred riding style.
The Loaded Fat Tail would be a great choice for someone looking for a campus cruiser or simply a do-it-all board for cruising, carving, and some smaller freeride hills. And, with the looks of it, this beast would be a blast in the skatepark, too!
Throw on some 150mm Paris Trucks and some 70mm Orangatang Stimulus Wheels and you've got yourself one great board for the your longboarding expeditions.
Please Note: We recommend sticking to a ~150mm truck for this bad boy. Although we all love 180mm (or 10") trucks, they may not be as lively as some 150mm (or 9") trucks on this board. If you're thinking about doing some mild downhill freeriding on this board, 180mm will be a bit more stable, but don't say we didn't warn you if you're not able to maneuver the sidewalks very easily with 180mm trucks !
Length: 38" / 96.5cm
Width:8.63" / 22cm
Wheelbase (Inner):26.5" / 67.3cm
Wheelbase (Outer): 27.4" / 69.6cm
Weight: deck only: 3.bs / 1.4kg
A little extra girth never hurt anyone. At least that was our approach when it came time to revamp the design of the Pintail. We wanted to modernize this classic concept so it could keep up with evolutions in riding and performance.
The Fattail was designed for pumping, carving, pedestrian slalom, freestyle and generally any situation where lively, energetic lines are on the menu. Increased concave locks your feet in against g-forces, while the topmounted and cambered platform provides energetic performance in and out of each carve. The width of the deck has been redistributed while maintaining subtle tapering near the trucks to provide both ample leverage and awareness of foot position while powering through turns. The formerly vestigial tail has received the silicone treatment for improved functionality in both freestyle tricks and surf-style shredding. The Fattail is also equipped with a slight nose kick for manuals and shuvits.
A vertically laminated bamboo core is sandwiched between fiberglass skins. The tail is reinforced with an additional layer of fiberglass (top) and carbon fiber (bottom) for added stiffness and abrasion resistance. The bottom is finished with a bamboo veneer with a die cut water droplet pattern, which is filled with transparent urethane and a “floating” graphic to give a sense of dimensionality.
Flex 1: Up to 275 lbs/ <125kg
Flex 2: 125-215+ lbs/55kg - 95kg
Flex 3: 75-175+ lbs/35kg-80kg
Trucks: The Fattail rides best on 150mm trucks - we recommend Paris, Tracker FasTracks, and Navigator Drone.
Wheels: Recommended wheel size is 70mm. Our go to wheels, Orangatang Stimulus and 4 Presidents.
Mini VanguardBy Chad McGuigan on 2018-09-03 Verified Purchase
I spent a good bit of time searching through every company to find a deck to serve as a smaller version of the vanguard, but couldn't find one anywhere. The fattail is around the same overall size, but has much tighter wheelbase options, so I finally convinced myself pull the trigger on it, like I always knew I'd have to eventually. The fattail (flex 2) excells at carving exactly how you would expect it to. It dives in and rebounds out unlike any other brand, as far as I've experienced. This can make it a little more difficult for newer riders to learn on; I've been bucked off my fair share of boards in past when I wasn't expecting the rebound they had. But of course you can opt for the flex 1 version if that's a concern of yours. Also, I did notice that with how the nose is designed, you can't get your front foot as far up to the truck as you can on a traditional pintail, so low speed pumping is a little more difficult to initiate. For me the deck fills it's purpose like only a loaded deck can do, with incredibly smooth flex characteristics. BUT if I were to do it again, I don't know that I'd choose to spend Loaded kind of money, instead of going for another traditional pintail with a similar flex/pump, and maybe put the extra money into new bushings and wheels.
Carvy flexy kicktail fun!By Jack Blevins on 2018-03-12
This deck is made for fun, plain and simple. The flex and camber make carving a breeze, pedestrians won't know what didn't hit them. I threw on some 70mm sharp lipped wheels and real narrow tkps so the width of the wheels matches the width of the board. Nothing gives me more joy than sneaking up on people and cutting them off on sidewalks. You have the power to scare people of all ages! I advocate flex 3 and soft wheels to maximize your stealth potential.
