The Loaded Tan Tien blends carve-oriented longboarding with advanced trick riding. A flexible deck, drop-through truck mounts, and usable kicks allow the Tan Tien to pack a lot into a relatively small package. The complex contours create a super responsive board that allows for increased confidence when leaning into turns, popping tricks, and powering through slides.
User Friendly — Drop-through truck mounting positions the deck lower to the ground for easier, more efficient pushing and enhanced stability. Light weight and compact size make the Tan Tien easy to handle for freestyle, freeride, and commuting.
Responsive Ride — Vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass construction pair with a cambered profile for a lively and engaging ride.
Versatile Variations — Available in three flex ratings to tailor the ride to your weight and style. Lower flex is ideal for heavier riders or aggressive tricksters; higher flex is recommended for lighter riders or those looking for a more responsive board.
Flex 1: 170-270+ lbs
Flex 2: 130-210+ lbs
Flex 3: 80-170+ lbs
As always, these are recommendations only. Experiment!
