Combining wheel flares, cork, a balanced flex pattern and novel manufacturing, the Icarus is a milestone in Loaded’s exploration of the soulful carving experience.
Powerful Flex – Vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass construction pair with a cambered profile and a variable concave for a lively and engaging ride. Cork bottom provides vibration damping.
User Friendly – Drop-through truck mounting positions the deck lower to the ground for easier, more efficient pushing and enhanced stability. Light weight and compact size make the Icarus intuitive and commuter friendly.
Shapely Curves – The right curves in the right places enhance ergonomics while contributing to a responsive and high-performance ride. Wheel well flares accommodate big wheels and improve turning leverage and control. Variable concave yields a consistent flex pattern while providing a variety of riding experiences based on foot placement.
Practical Kicks – Minimal nose and tail kicks help navigate city streets and open the door for freestyle trickery.
Weight: 2.9 lbs
Flex 1: 170-250+ lbs
Flex 2: 75-200+ lbs

How should I set up my Icarus?
TRUCKS: Loaded recommends 180mm, 50° reverse-kingpin trucks like Paris V2 for optimal agility and control.
WHEELS: Loaded’s go-to setup is 80mm Orangatang Kegels with Paris trucks and soft Orangatang Nipple bushings. Also rides well with 75mm Orangatang In Heats or Durians.
Loaded Boards was founded in 2000. Producing a broad line of progressive longboards and snowboards, they strive to grow the industry, community, and dynamic culture of board sports.
- VERSATILE CARVING MACHINE – The Loaded Icarus is a performance longboard created for snowboard-style carving, pumping, freeride, freestyle, and urban commuting / alternative transportation.
- UTILITARIAN DESIGN – Drop-through truck mounting for stability and easier pushing. Cambered profile and variable edge concave create a lively and precise riding experience. Cutouts combine with flared wheel wells to maximize clearance for big wheels and allow deep carves and tight turns. Minimal nose and tail kicks help navigate city streets and open the door for freestyle trickery.
- STRONG, LIGHT, & DAMP – Snowboard-inspired composite construction combines vertically laminated bamboo and fiberglass for a durable, lightweight, and lively ride. Cork bottom layer provides vibration damping.
- HIGH-PERFORMANCE FLEX – Bamboo and fiberglass provide lively and energetic flex perfect for hard carving and pumping. Flex 1 is ideal for heavier riders or aggressive tricksters seeking more stiffness and stability, while flex 2 is the best choice for lighter riders or those looking for a more responsive board.
