The Loaded Tarab is designed to push the boundaries of modern longboard dancing. Loaded Boards launched their first Dancer in 2008, followed by the Bhangra in 2010. The Tarab builds on that history. Lightweight, durable and technical, the Tarab is intended to further the level of longboard dancing and modern freestyle.
Form and Function – Rocker, concave, symmetrical shape, kicktails, grab rails, and purposeful griptape combine to form an elegantly ergonomic platform for flowy footwork and the most frenetic freestyle dancing.
Damp and Durable – Bamboo and basalt construction keeps the Tarab lightweight, lively, and durable. A cork top layer complements the griptape design, providing secure yet non-abrasive traction across the standing platform while also damping vibration. Urethane-reinforced kicktails and unique UHMWPE rails protect against a wide array of freestyle-inflicted damage.
Versatile Variations – Available in two distinct flexes. Flex 1 features an extra bamboo veneer for added stiffness and damping. Flex 2 is slightly lighter and noticeably more lively. Both flexes feature two truck-mounting options to accommodate a variety of riding preferences.
Weight: 5 lbs
Flex 1: 140-270+ lbs
Flex 2: 80-190+ lbs
One Loaded Tarab deck ONLY. Trucks, wheels, bearings, and hardware are NOT INCLUDED.
