If you haven’t heard, Primitive Skateboarding is a new brand brought to you by none other than Paul Rodriguez. Quality wood, a sick team including P-Rod himself, Nick Tucker and Carlos Riebeiro and bold graphics make Primitive one of our new favorites around here. The Primitive Rodriguez Eagle LG White is a solid choice.
The all-new Thunder 149II trucks feature a taller ride height and lower kingpin than previous Thunder models. This means less wheelbite and less kingpin hang-ups on grinds. All big improvements if you ask me. The hollow light model also features a forged baseplate with a hollow kingpin and a hollow axle, so you get an ultra light truck with that Thunder Trucks quality and control you can count on. Boom boom boom.
Ricta Speedring Wheels serve up the instant speed of cored wheels, but without their hard-core chatter. Structural ‘Flex-Rings’ fight against bearing deflection under-load to provide hesitation free landings, and that means successfully rolling away from more tricks. Roll faster.
Bones Super Reds are designed from the ground up to be the best bearing on the market at this price point. What Super Reds are not, is a Reds bearing with better super finishing (surface polishing). Super Reds are a superior quality precision ground bearing, using higher quality steel races, better quality and grade balls and a superior surface finish. The result is a bearing that is as fast as Reds, but quieter, smoother and longer lasting. Super Reds use a black shield and laser engraving to differentiate themselves from original Reds.
Shake Junt Phillips Hardware represents. What does it represent? Shake Junt, son! Skateboarding, money, smoke, booze and women. With this hardware, you get six black bolts, one yellow bolt and one green bolt. Same goes for the nuts. Six black, one green, one yellow. Do not eat these! You will kill yo’self!
Graphic Mob Griptape features a groundbreaking process that locks full color illustrations and crystal clear photographs into the grit, without sacrificing the durability, grip and feel that makes Mob the #1 choice of professional skateboarders. With the classic Lowcard “Stay Lame” and 2 of Spades adorned on top, you know we’re stoked.
