Rimable 41 Inch Drop Deck – Main Features
The Rimable 41 Inch Drop Deck is what you get when you combine a fairly standard drop-through board with higher-end trucks and bearings. This is the type of board that’s not just great for riding around town, but that will also give you enough speed and control to weave through obstacles – or crowds – without endangering your balance. It’s got a high degree of maneuverability that you don’t usually see in a longboard, combined with the kind of excellent construction that you’d expect from a board that’s meant to stand up to serious use.
The wheels on this board shouldn’t be ignored, either. The brand definitely brags about the board having an incredibly smooth ride and that is definitely the case here. There is very little resistance when moving, which makes it easier to take the board for a long ride or to build up speed when going downhill.
This could be dangerous. Nonetheless, the board also offers a high degree of control as well as a very stable center of gravity. That makes this board one of the rare longboards that caters to experienced riders as much as it does to novices looking for their first boards.

The Price Tag Doesn’t Support Quality Parts
