After a few years of experimenting and testing the Powell Peralta Kevin Reimer Carbon Samurai Pro Longboard finally made it's way to Australia.  This deck is the step up from the Samurai since the whole deck is finished with a Full Carbon Fiber skins on a tri-axial fiberglass board. If you know a bit about Downhill Skateboarding, you will know this name: Kevin Reimer has the record for winning several  Downhill World Championships and any race he enters. This Samurai 10" x 36.75" was designed and developed by Kevin himself with Powell Peralta , as a deck for all:  Race and Freeride Skateboarding.

The aim behind this design was to develop the easiest and fastest downhill board available today.  This Samurai has a 3/8 inch micro drop front and back that will hold you in the right position  for sliding, drifting, or freeriding. It also features a flat-topped W concave that is meant to be subtle enough to not effect pushing, but noticeable enough to hold your foot on toeside corners and slides. 

With a  mellow concave, more gentle and round than other concaves which allows for more foot contact with the board, meaning more grip, more control, and less feedback that can slow you down. Many of todays downhill and freeride boards have intense concave that hurts your feet and in fact hinders your skating, and the Samurai has the opposite of these extremes.

Built to be super light using the least amount of material possible, and allowing the use of large race wheels 75mm and above without wheel bite.

  • High strength epoxy glue
