We all know how carbon fiber is commonly found in exotic cars, making your dream Ferrari that much more of a dream. But thanks to Louis Bradier‘s SocBoarding Carbon #1 downhill longboard, made entirely of carbon fiber, it is now more affordable and realistic for us common-folk to cruise in style.
Louis Bradier has taken his career of mechanical engineering and design and manufactured this gnarley board. Bradier’s site describes the carbon fiber board in detail,
“It features a foam core construction with a torsion box, an impact tough injected polyurethane edge and load distributors. Tech. Spec.: Length: 1050 mm, Max width: 260 mm, Wheelbase: 900 mm, Weight: 1.5kg, Longitudinal and torsional flex: close to none”
The SPC#1 is definitely not intended to show off your latest and greatest tricks but instead provide a nice and easy ride. Carbon fiber’s lightness assists the SPC#1 in lowering energy absorption thus increasing speed. Not only will you get to your destination faster, you’ll be comfortable the whole ride there as Bradier designed with comfort in mind.
Make sure to check out the shape of the carbon fiber board, it’s meant to resemble the shape of a human body. And next, check out the graphic on the bottom of the board, reminding you of a smooth ride. I don’t know about you but the SPC#1 makes me want to take up skateboarding!
