A flexible longboard is great for carving, but the crisp response you get out of a more firm, shorter, board can make a huge difference in your freestyle longboarding game. The Apex 34 takes a good thing and makes it even better, like the Apex 37, the Apex 34 makes use of Original’s industry leading Hybrid Vert-Lam core. Combined with a shorter wheelbase, that core means easy flippage and quick rippage, providing an all around ride that is ideal for the freestyle minded longboarder looking to advance.
Lower than low.
In longboard skateboards, height gives you added power in the carves at the cost of stability at speed and flip trick control. The Apex 34 is custom routed using a precision CNC router to drop Original trucks straight to the deck (no riser). This drop to deck design, combined with the fact that Original longboard trucks are the lowest trucks on the market makes the Apex 34 lower than, or at least as low as, the most popular drop-through longboards on the market.
Coming in just under 5 lbs (complete with S6 150mm Original trucks and 3dm Cambria super wide wheels) the Apex 34 is the lightest board in the Original line and lighter than the Apex 37 by almost 30%. Given that the Apex 37 is already the lightest longboard in its size range (37'' to 38'' inches) the further weight reduction showcased in the Apex 34 leaves the rider with a longboard skateboard that is lighter than many shortboard skateboards on the market today. Holding one is believing, there is a new standard in feather weight longboards.
Up, or down, for anything.
Just like the larger Apex 37, the Apex 34 sports a twin-tip longboard skateboard shape ideal for mastering longboard slides and spins, while maintaining your focus on forward direction. No worries on that varial flip, the nose is the tail, keep pushing your longboarding and keep pushing your longboard, no need to revert. Remember. There is no wrong way to longboard on the Apex 34.
