Since they started, Olson&Hekmati longboards focused mostly on cruising and freestyle, but recently they added a downhill longboard deck to their collection as well – the Bromodel.
With their classic collection perfected, this year they focused even more on its development and have done some improvements to it. Here’s a sneak peak of the latest Bromodel with Alex Dehmel.
As Alex says, the O&H crew spent a lot of time on a development of the Bromodel and there have been many revisions of the board. Getting to a point when they decided to make it a “production series” was challenging, but after investing a bunch of resources, the crew is finally satisfied with the results of their work.
The Olson&Hekmati Bromodel is 98cm long and 25 cm wide top-mount deck offering the wheelbase options from 66.2 to 70 centimeters.
As its previous version, the new Bromodel also promotes two “pockets” built up with wheel flares to offer a better foot lock. The rocker is still there as well. The new version now features a deeper concave with a slightly shorter wheelbase to offer even more turnability and grip.
The Bromodel has a wooden core made of Ash veneer pressed between the layers of fiberglass and carbon sheets to provide a lightweight but strong and stable platform suitable for high speed skating. If you’re down for popping some tricks, the Bromodel longboard deck has a nice kick tail as well.
