Continuing the legacy of the Fish and Ceviche, the Poke is the newest performance-driven stage of a pescatarian culinary tradition.Featuring highly functional kicktails and a comfortable platform with concave, rocker, and wheel well flares, this compact and versatile thrasher / city commuter will take you all over town hunting for driveways, banks and garages.The Poke is a performance bamboo composite longboard designed to carve and slash through the urban landscape.Joining a pond of playful performers, the Poke is the latest incarnation of the Fish and Ceviche, mellow-mannered cousin of the Kanthaka, and little sibling to the Fattail. Nimble, highly pumpable, and freestyle-friendly, this versatile city commuter keeps up with your every whim and makes each outing a creative, dynamic adventure. Vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass construction provides a lightweight and snappy board with just the right amount of flex.The Rocker:0.1 of rocker in the Pokes standing platform complements the subtle flex of the board and allows you to sink into a comfortable hammock-like interface for both leisurely and aggressive riding. The rocker helps freestyle tricks feel more natural and also creates a solid platform for pushing and commuting.Wheel Well FlaresSlight concave flares on either end of the standing platform provide tactile reference for your feet, allow for increased width without wheelbite, and lock you in for quick maneuvers with a high level of board awareness. Additionally, these complex contours enhance the torsional stiffness of the deck and promote better stability and control.ConcaveThe Poke features 0.5 of radial concave for solid and quick transitions from rail to rail while pumping, carving, and slashing. Aggressive enough for spirited performance riding yet comfortable enough for the casual commute or boogie through town.KicktailsThe Poke sports an ample tail for assertive surf-style slashing and plenty of freestyle trickery. The kick angle has been designed to facilitate a snappy and functional pop.FlexSolid for stable carving, soft enough for comfort and crisp for pop, the Pokes bamboo and fiberglass construction is light and durable.Loaded recommend Paris 150’s on your Poke which are complimented well by fitting 4Presidents for a grippy, pumpy set up, Stimulus for traction and drift or Fat Frees for weight reduction and trick-heavy freestyle riding.With this in mind the Poke is available in the following set up options for the ultimate customised ride: (please email us after ordering with your wheel choice and order number)Premium Setup 1:Paris 150s Raw, Orangatang 4President or Stimulus and Jehu Abec 5PremiumSetup2: Paris 150s Black, Orangatang 4President or Stimulus and Jehu Abec 5PremiumSetup3: Randal R-2 Trucks (150mm), Orangatang 4President or Stimulus and Jehu Abec 5PremiumSetup4: Randal R-2 Trucks (150mm), Orangatang Fat Free and Jehu Abec 5PremiumSetup5: Paris 150s Raw, Orangatang Fat Free and Jehu Abec 5PremiumSetup6: Paris 150s Raw, Urban Blue 70/78a Whites and Code Abec 7PremiumSetup7: Randal R-2 Trucks (150mm), Retro 70mm ZigZags and Jehu Abec 5PremiumSetup8: Paris 150s Raw, Retro 70mm ZigZags and Jehu Abec 5* Orangatangs are available in Orange 80a, Purple 83a or Yellow 86a.
