The Krown Exotic Kicktail Longboard has grown more popular as the Krown brand has shown that it can produce a quality product at affordable prices. This board showcases that, as they put excruciating detail into making sure that this is a well-built board. It has a high-quality design, made from eco-friendly materials. The design focuses on providing maximum stability and control while taking nothing away from the smoothness of the ride. This board is durable and can take its fair share of wipeouts and still maintain its great look.
This is a great beginner’s board, just as much as it is a fantastic upgrade from an existing or worn board. This board is designed to last for years, and with that lasting power, it is feasible that this board could see a beginner grow and develop into an expert over the years and remain that skateboarder’s favorite board even when they have gathered others. In this review, we are going to look at the fantastic key features that make this board as popular as it is.
The Krown Exotic Kicktail Longboard from tip to tail looks great. The design incorporates several features to make it an easy to use, maneuverable longboard. It has a kick tail for easy dismount, as that is part of its standard design, and makes it easy to change to carrying it into a building. It has classic 42-inch board design and construction making this prime for cruising the streets. This style of the deck also provides a better turning radius and is great for cruising as well.
Krown says they are speed bearings and that most likely means they are lubed with speed grease. The boards have an ABEC rating of 5 that will give you an average bearing performance.
7-inch black aluminum trucks
This 9.25-inch board has 7-inch black trucks. The Krown Exotic Kicktail Longboard comes with high profile trucks, meaning this is the perfect board for tricks, but will also perform well as a cruiser.
71mm 78a wheels
The 71mm is a mid-range diameter wheel, giving it equal speed, and acceleration. Polyurethane material has been used in making these wheels as you would expect in all skateboard wheels. With a 78a longboard, wheels will offer you mid-range hardness and durability. With these longboard wheels, you can get great drag and grip. Use these longboards for both riding and commuting.
This unique looking deck is made from artisan bamboo, giving it a one of a kind look when compared to a solid maple laminate deck or other materials of decks on the market. The deck of the board is amazing and beautiful, we can’t say it enough, it has a shiny finish and a detailed bamboo design accentuating the actual bamboo wood on the bottom and top of the deck.
The quality of the board is hard to find at the affordable price it comes at, especially because it is a multi-ply dual wood deck. Not completely solid bamboo, this board is layered with Canadian maple and the artisan bamboo. The maple gives the board stability and strength to offset the flexible nature of the bamboo wood, giving great balance to the qualities of this board.
The Krown Exotic Kicktail Longboard is a stable board, being tough enough to handle all sizes of rider, from children to full grown adults. It is a good beginner board for cruising and learning how to ride with a forgiving board. Since the board is made of bamboo and maple, it has some flexibility but not too much, making this a stable board to cruise on.
The high profile trucks and classic design of this board give the rider greater control of the board and increased turn radius. This board will excel at commuting, especially when you need to move around with ease or come to a quick stop.
This is not a racing board; this is a cruiser or trick board. The high profile and lower quality bearings just do not hold up to the expectations of riders interested in racing. Also, the high center of gravity would make this a dangerous board to race unless you put lower profile trucks on it.
The multi-ply layers of maple in this board give it strength and the total design of the board were done to make this board last. The clear grip tape does collect its fair share of dirt, but the board does not scuff up easily. The durability of the deck and hardware of this board greatly depends on how often they are used and regular maintenance.
With its great bamboo and Canadian Maple construction along with the higher centre of gravity for the board, this can be a great choice if you need a board for your daily commutes. High centre of gravity also gives you greater control and allows you to move about with relative ease.
