Mark Appleyard rules and Element makes good boards. ‘Nuff said. The Element Appleyard One Man Band Deck is constructed from 7-ply maple.
Spitfire’s Formula Fours are the newest wheel by Spitfire. Tested by Spitfire team riders, Formula Four Performance Urethane lasted longer, withstood more abuse and performed superior to all other wheels. Spitfire Formula Four Urethane was developed to combine all the desired properties of a performance wheel without sacrificing any one attribute at the expense of another. Formula Four gives you the highest level of control and consistent grip you can count on.
The Independent Stage 11 Low trucks feature new updated geometry. This is the new standard. You get superior turn and stability, better grind clearance, improved “no hang-up yoke” and a lightweight hollow body hanger. Made in the U.S.A. and guaranteed for life.
The Independent Genuine Bearings ABEC 7 go hard. These bearings are fast, serviceable and durable. Package brings you eight Independent bearings, eight speed rings and four spacers.”FASTER THAN BONES SWISS – LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE!”, say NHS Independent people… fast as fuck! Featuring removable non-contact labyrinth shields, grit blocking cage, stainless steel races and balls. Set of 8 bearings with spacers and speed rings.
Turn the tables on your generic hardware. Shorty’s The Blue Note hardware is a cool way to customize your setup. Comes in a set of eight. Two light blue, two darker blue, two white and two purple tipped screws with solid silver nuts. Jazzy.
Element’s Die Cut Logo griptape by Jessup is Element style grip done the right way, the way you like. Element logo die cut at one end. Comes in 9”x33” sheets.
