The right equipment is one of the most important elements of success, no matter what it is you’re trying to do. Finding that piece of equipment, however, tends to be a little complicated. Longboarders tend to have quite specific needs, and even more so depending on their favoured style of riding.
One brand which is known for catering to the needs of longboarders (genuinely designing with the rider in mind, listening to what they want and making the suitable modifications and adjustments to the models, and consistently delivering high quality products) is Sector 9. The company has a history as a top brand, whatever you’re looking for in a longboard.
One of their most attractive qualities is understanding that a high quality product does not have to have a high price tag: their boards deliver style and performance at an impressive level while still being affordable and low in price.
Sector 9 longboards are without doubt the best bet for beginners and riders in the early stages of their career in the sport. The level of flex and the aerodynamic nature of their boards mean that you will have a highly responsive ride, making anything you try to achieve with them that much easier. The stability and perfect amount of surface area makes them great for walking the board, and the concave is just right for providing a smooth, effortless ride.
Reviewers have particularly praised how great these boards are for going at high speeds on a downhill, whether you’re trying to race a car on a straight or carve some decent turns. This board does favour wider turns, but those who know what they’re doing can make certain adaptations so they can make the angle a little more sharp if they’d prefer.
If you’re looking for a high quality longboard at a great price, then look no further – you’ve found it.
