The Osprey ‘Text’ Twin Tip Longboard Skateboard is designed for those laid back guys and girls who love the long, smooth and not to mention fast rides that only a longboard can deliver. The extra sturdy deck is capable of standing up to adrenaline charged, downhill rides as mammoth as the robust Canadian maple that makes up its construction. The durable yet lightweight 8 inch Aluminum Trucks complete with bases, offer incredible stability and the PU bushings and cushions offer awesome shock absorption keeping the ride smooth even on more rugged concrete terrain. With large PU 70mm x 51mm wheels and ABEC 9 chrome bearings the ‘Text’ can get up to speed pretty quickly and its twin tip design means that wheel bite is less of an issue, allowing for silky smooth cornering even at a fast cruising speed. Aesthetically the ‘Text’ features a simplistic blue stenciled deck design, as a single decorative statement. But then again this is a board that has no time for gimmicks and flashiness, pure unbridled performance is its forte, suiting the kind of rider who likes to let their skating do the talking for them.
