Loaded Boards has proven time and time again that their primary concern is providing their customers with a board that is going to allow them to challenge themselves and push themselves to their limits. Proof of this can be seen when looking at the Loaded Tan Tien. It has been set up to allow riders to explore new riding styles and create their own tricks as they ride.
Some of the features that allow riders to invent tricks and develop style include foot locking concave and drop through platform design. Both of these features increase the stability of the board and also improve the control that the rider has over the board as they are carving through the streets, careening down hills and dazzling the world with their elaborate tricks.
The Loaded Tan Tien combines the best of carve orientated riding with advanced trick riding. This means that in one moment a rider could be carving down a hill, and when the spirit moves them, they can do a trick or two without missing a beat.
The Loaded Tan Tien is extremely responsive. It moves with the rider. This will allow the rider to have more confidence while they are on the board. They know that if they lean into a turn, the board is going to respond with them.
They also have the confidence of knowing that if they pop a trick, the board is going to react exactly the way they want it to, and the board is going to be consistent trick after trick. Powering through slides becomes a breeze because of the high quality Gullwing trucks that are used in conjunction with perfect sliding wheels.
The board itself is not just functional. It is also extremely attractive. It comes complete with a woven bamboo bottom and a unique grip design. The board is easy on the eyes, and it is sure to get the attention of anyone who sees it skating by.
The Loaded Tan Tien gets its name from the Chinese term that refers to the energy center of a person. This name is apropos simply because the board allows the rider to have an amazing center of balance. In comparison to other boards made by Loaded, this board is a little bit smaller and has a shorter wheel base. This means that the board is going to slide easier, and it is going to respond well to tight curves. Additionally, it’s being smaller means that it is lighter. The board is easier to push, and it is a piece of cake to commute with.
The Loaded Tan Tien comes equipped with a functional nose and tail shape. This means that locking in manuals/shovits/pivots is so much easier with this board, as opposed to some of the other longboards that are available on the market.
The Loaded Tan Tien represents longboarding at its best. The attention to detail that is applied to this board makes it literally second to none. It is a must-have for anyone who is serious about longboarding.
