Krown Rasta Freestyle Elite Review
|Krown Rasta Drop Through
|36 x 9.25
Are you or someone you know thinking about getting into longboarding for the first time, but are little reluctant to drop the hundreds of dollars that are often needed to buy a quality longboard? If that is the case, the Krown Rasta Freestyle Elite is the perfect board for you.
This high-quality board comes complete with 8-ply maple construction. This means that the board itself is going to be sturdy and able to survive the inevitable bumps that come with learning to ride longboards for the very first time.
Another reason why this board is beginner friendly is because it has a low center of gravity. This is thanks in part to its drop through design. A lower center of gravity means that it is easier for a beginning rider to keep themselves up on the board. Additionally, it is going to be easier for a beginner to propel the board since it is lower to the ground and will require less strength and less endurance.
Board stability is a must-have for anyone starting out on a longboard. Parents who are looking to get a board for their children should consider the stability of the board before they purchase it. The more stable the board is, the less likely it is that the rider is going to fall off.
Once again, the low center of gravity that the Krown Rasta Freestyle Elite offers to riders proves itself invaluable. This board will remain stable even when traveling at higher speeds.
At 36 inches in length, the boards deck is relatively small. This makes it lighter and makes the board easier to handle. The 7.0 reverse kingpin trucks and the 71 mm 78 a wheels make sliding on this board a breeze. The wheels on this board are of the highest quality. With proper use and maintenance, they will not need to be replaced for a very long time.
The only complaints that individuals who purchased this board made have to do with the grip tape. Users commented that the grip tape is not well applied and easily comes undone.
However, this is a small fix that a person can repair themselves or have done at any skate shop. Additionally, some riders have commented that it might be necessary to loosen the trucks so that they feel comfortable to the rider.
Overall, this board is an excellent buy. The graphic overlay on this board is phenomenal and will instantly become an eye-catcher. It is relatively inexpensive, so a beginner can feel confident that they are not spending an arm and a leg on a product they may not use. This board promises to provide its owner with many years of quality and enjoyable riding.
