While experienced longboarders can shrug off high speeds by powersliding, most of us are left without way of easily stopping, especially coming off of hills. Brakeboard finally brings this ability to the layman by way of a simple foot pedal on top of your rear truck mounts. Downward pressure on the pedal is regulated by a urethane bushing for smooth, non-abrupt braking, and triggers a linkage system through the trucks that leaves normal mobility and turning untouched while activating two independent clutch brakes, one per side. Otherwise, the Brakeboard set fits most existing longboards with just a slight modification needed (drill bit included), works with wheels between 65 and 75mm (if you’d rather not use the optional 70mm’s), and comes wrapped up in a limited edition padded metal road case.
