Change the way you ride. From freestyle to freeride, cruising/carving, and light downhill, the new Apex 40 DiamondDrop pushes the possibilities the moment your feet hit dat drop. With a new wider standing platform, more concave, added wheel wells, + deleted gas pedals, the reinvented Apex is your upgraded go-to.
The Apex 40 DiamondDrop longboard skateboards’ bread and butter is freestyle and freeride, but that comfy drop locks you in and keeps you low to the ground for campus cruising, slide perfection, and light downhill bombing here or there. Beginner-to-advanced, the only thing the Apex DiamondDrop is missing is YOU.
Learning to Ride + Cruising/Carving
Whether youâ€™re a beginner learning to ride or just want to cruise / carve, the possibilities are endless. Due to its low to the ground posture and compatibility with Original Trucks, riders can learn how to turn more easily, push more easily, coast further, and keep that tight turn radius for smooth carves.
Dip your toe into the deep end. With upgraded deeper pockets, the DD locks you in for any slide you throw at it. Slide every which way with a diamond under the soles of your shoes. Versatility, ease of slide initiation, and that drop help to perfect your slide game. Enhance your slide experience with the Apex 40 DiamondDrop.
Low to the ground to allow more comfortable stance while pushing. The DiamondDropâ€™s pockets let you know where your feet are, so the only thing you have to worry about is traffic. Pair the Apex with S8 Original Trucks, for a tight turn radius and an even lower pushing platform that allows you to drop a curb, whip around your neighborâ€™s dog, or navigate through traffic. Work hard. Cruise further.
Bread + Butter
The deeper concave of the new Apex 40 DiamondDrop gives you more control over your slides, while the expanded EFP lets you stand closer to your trucks for more leverage and easier slide rotation. Bigger riders + those with a wider stance rejoice, the Apex 40 is wider (in all directions) to accommodate your needs. Technical slides + fast freerides, this is your bread and butter.
