Cruising on one’s longboard is like enjoying the rush of air across one’s face, fully cognizant of the thump on the chest. And when the ride is over, most longboards are best propped up against a vertical structure, allowing them to stand with proud. But the sad fact of life is that there may not always be a ready structure to accommodate one’s imposing longboard. With the BoardUp Longboard V3.2, however, you won’t need any.
The BoardUp is an ingeniously crafted longboard that folds in the middle to form an inverted V or even a tent, allowing it to be propped standing up wherever that may be. And while some may think that its folding nature can significantly affect the overall integrity, reliability, and performance of the BoardUp, one would be surprised that not only does the hinged middle doesn’t affect performance it also allows for more absurd, crazier, and sharper turns. Everything actually depends on the ride, of course.
With a full 34 inches of premium Canadian maple wood deck that has been seriously reinforced with an additional glass fiber layer, the BoardUp V3.2 is one longboard that will never say no to any wheeling adventure you may have in mind. The 6-inch Kingpin trucks provide the framework for its 75×51 millimeter high re-bounce elastic polyurethane wheels. The ABEC-9 wheel bearings have also been significantly improved to ensure smoother rolls and blitzkrieg speeds. Technically, the system allows the BoardUp to travel 40 to 60% farther in a single kick.
Bridging the two panels of the BoardUp is an aluminum alloy locking hinge, ensuring that the board retains its exceptional combination of rigidity and flex to have one easily cruise on straights and downhill lanes.
The BoardUp literally stands up to the rigors of cruising, making it the best for students and commuters alike.
