The original version of the Samba by Lush Longboards got tweaked to become their new so called ”ultimate freestyle carving machine”, the Samba X-Flex.
The Samba is 90 cm long and 23.5 cm wide and has a 72.4 cm wheelbase. The design includes an Angled Drop Down profile with a Flushmount. In addition, it also features the Lush X-Flex Composite construction, with which they were able to tweak the board’s flex pattern to just the right amount for carving.
Further improvements include a little more concave, a shorter overall length and a tweaked platform, to eliminate wheel bite at maximum lean.
The board is designed to alter the truck geometry which in essence creates a very turny ride, similar to snowboarding and surfing.
Although the board is not really made for speed, freeride or tricks, it is a great cruising & carving deck for the every day commuter.
Happy cruising & carving!
