Hey guys. I’d just like to start off by thanking everyone for all their concern over my snowman attack two weeks ago. I’m all healed up and I’m happy to report that I carry a blow dryer with me at all times now. Anyways, I have some news, we got some Five Miles in the shop! SWOOP!
We got a nice fat shipment of A-4 Skyhawks, F-18 Hornets, F-22 Raptors, F-4 Phantoms, and the A-6 Intruder. These boards are dope boy fresh yo. Let me go through some of these specs on these beasts.
The A-4 Skyhawk, 38″ long, 10″ at its widest point, with an adjustable wheelbase of 31″-32″. Sweet drop though board featuring 3/4th” drops with 1/4ths” double rocker pockets that Five Mile likes to call “Hott Pokkets”. Add 1/8th Camber and it creates a “Mustache Rocker” as named by 5 Mile. It also features W Concave in the middle. Swag. The F-18 Hornet, directed towards freeride, is basically a top mount version of the A-4 Skyhawk. The F-18 Hornet gives you 100% control as its 37 1/4th” long, 9.5″ at its widest point, and an adjustable wheelbase of 29″-30″. It has a drop in the front at 3/8th”, a drop in the center at 1/2″, and a drop in the rear at 3/8th”. Rocker pocket of 1/4th” with a camber of 1/4th” and a 1/2th” concave. Its just not fair how locked in you are; its not.
The F-22 Raptor was built to satisfy your need for speed. At 38″ long, 10″ wide at its widest point with an adjustable wheelbase of 29.5″-31″, this board was designed for you to get your speed on while feeling totally locked in with its 3/8th” drop in the front with a 1/2″ drop in the center and a 3/8th” drop in the rear. Add this with a 3/4th” concave up in the front and a 1/2″ concave in the back and you’ll feel more locked in on this board then claustrophobic person in a cubicle. Can you say predrifts? Blam-o! Then comes in the F-4 Phantom which is the little brother to the F-22 Raptor. However the F-4 Phantom comes in at 36″ long, 9 3/4th” at its widest point with an adjustable wheelbase of 28″-29″ long. The front of this deck is wedged at 5 degrees while the back is wedged 3 degrees. It also features a 1/2″ center drop and a 5/8th” concave in the front pocket. Get some.
Last but not least, we have the A-6 Intruder. Directed towards freeriding and city cruising, the deck is the only deck in Five Mile’s line up that features old school and new school drilling for wheelbase options, which means, yes, you can run Indys on this guy! This symmetrical top mount comes in at 38″ long, 9 3/4th” at its widest point with a 27″ wheelbase. It features a 3/8th” drop with a 1/4th” rocker, 1/4th” camber, and 1/2th” concave. The thinnest deck that the Five Mile line has to offer as its made of 7 ply maple. This board will lock you in for all your stand up slide needs, and it is light and agile enough to be an excellent city rider.
Long story short, if your looking for some downhill/freeride decks that will lock you in at unfair amounts, come on by to Longboard Loft. We’ll make sure we hook you up with the freshest set up you can come up with. Swag Swoop Blam-o!! Sorry. I’m suffering from stage 2 swag syndrome lately.
Until the next stop, keep skating, stay stoked, and remember, if you see a bunch of 47 year old women drinking on the train at 10 in the morning, do what I do. Take a picture with them. #OneLoveFromLongboardLoft
