Heavy, but not bad
Posted on 2020-12-08
I set up my Nessie with 165mm arsenal trucks and a set of fresh 65mm Cuei sliders for some smooth freeride. Although the recommended truck width is 180mm or 184mm, I found this to stick out far past the edge of the deck, so it was not my preference, although riders searching to do some more intense downhill riding may prefer the wider trucks. 165mm fits well for me, sticking out just 1/4 inch or so. The wheel flares offer better grip just between them, but are not comfortable to stand directly on. As I stated when I began, this deck is a little heavy to pop, but more experienced freeriders can definitely get something when using the shorter wheelbase options. Overall, I believe it’s a great option for riders looking for directional freeride decks with the intent of sliding and charging light hills, as opposed to tricks.
